A very busy very good restaurant. The head of house is a charming if brusque Japanese woman who efficiently runs this sophisticated restaurant. Best seats in the house are at the bar, watching the sushi chef prepare intricate and beautifully presented dishes. I've worked myself through the menu and all are as good as they look.

I really wanted to like this place. We ordered a few entree dishes expecting a small bite so we could have a good night exploring the area. 30-40 mins later turns out they completely forgot our order. By the time the food finally arrived I was too hangry (hungry + angry) to enjoy it. Would not come here again.

Everything about this place is understated and cool and oh so tasty. The food did not disappoint one bit with lots of quality produce served in a beautiful way with good attention to detail. Prices aren't cheap and cheerful once you add a few drinks but well worth it if you are looking for authentic Japanese in an intimate setting

My wife and myself eat here every week, we love the food and staff are always great. But Friday night I was very disappointed to see that the restaurant has decided to srink their sushi rolls by about 1/3. I questioned the waiter who agreed that the rolls were smaller. Surprisingly the price has not changed by the same amount!

We were a group of 4 without a booking on a Friday night just before 7pm but were able to share a table with another small group. It remained busy throughout the night. If wanting to be alone, recommend a reservation as most evenings this restaurant is popular. An excellent range of traditional and modern flair selections on the menu,... More

What a great place! We loved the atmosphere, the food choices (delicious), friendly and attentive service. Being at the bar and having the opportunity to see how the sushi is made, was great! I recommend to do a reservation as the seats are limited...

Seaweed salad was a bit uninspired at a seaweed-lettuce:10-90 ratio. The cuttlefish nigiri was superb and made-up for the salad. The rainbow sushi roll was average to good. Very well balanced wasabi and aromatic ginger significantly helped the situation. Excellent service, polite and attentive without overdoing it. A$35-50 pp without drinks.

We chose to sit at the sushi bar. Requested 'traditional' sushi and sashimi (can't get my taste buds around mayo on sushi). We were not disappointed. Our serves were delicious and all the plates going by looked great. Booking recommended.

Probably my taste bud is different compared to others. Staying in Malaysia and I have been to Japan before, the food taste is far from Japan food. I did not mean to be insulting, probably they adjust the taste according to local. I would said that they are putting too much flavor so it turns out to be very salty... More
