I found a black, curly hair in my sushi which was really unpleasant. They gave me 1 free plate as an apology but that really didn't feel like enough. The sushi generally tasted ok but nothing special. Really not worth the prices they charge. There are better places to go in airlie beach, I wouldn't recommend you chose here.

Dear Trip advisor, As per the racist remarks in the past you would know we are not Asian no one that has or currently working here has black curly hair. Were we looking for a free meal? As one plate was not enough? Once again the major fault with this is I could right now run a restaurant into the... More

The food at this place was appalling! Restaurant is run by young backpackers that clearly don't know what they're doing. If you look at the "sushi" on the conveyor belts, they look like little pieces thrown together by amateaurs - and they have the nerve to charge, what, almost $4 a plate?? Out of sheer desperation, I ordered a chicken... More

Sushi in boats, don't even need to fuss about ordering cause something delicious will float your way any second. And if by chance you don't see what you are looking for, just need to order it.

This is a conveyor belt sushi place with a nice vibe, good service, large central fish tank, but pretty crappy food. The rice on the nigiri tasted pre made and refrigerated. The salmon was so-so. Most of the menu is chicken based which is odd for a Japanese place. It's also a shame that a sushi place in a beach... More

Was yearning for Japanese food and saw the good reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant looks cosy and clean, and was run by an Australian family. Nobody was there before I entered, but the simple order took quite a while to be ready, and the curry was bland, much to my surprise. The chicken and the rice weren't quite there either,... More

Vegetarian options are good here. We had Tofu Curry, Vegetarian Ramen, Agadashi Tofu... all very good, especially the curry. The owner is very friendly, maybe too friendly, but she cares and her food shows it. Will eat there again.

I'll start with the good.. The young server girls are very nice and very attentive. However, the chef, clearly lied on his resume and has about as much experience making sushi as I do. It falls apart, the rice is all over the place, and there is big chucks of avocado/salmon coming out of the end of the rolls, it's... More

With meals being so expensive in Australia, I was very happy to find a place with a meal deal at 19$. At this price you get 4 hot starters, 10 or 12 sushis and an ice cream. The fish is really delicious, I always found sushi fish on the coast of Queensland very good! Unfortunately, restaurant doesn't have bathrooms, but... More
