When I miss Japanese food, It will come true of my desire. There is so nice of food and drink. Lunch time also is very good to eat Sushi.

Service was slow and incorrect food was served to us. Though they've changed it, but we have waited for a long time. The lobster is small, we were expecting a huge one. The staff who greeted us was really accommodating and the chef who cooked in front of us, she was really friendly.

I've had one great meal, out the back in a private room with a big bunch of friends. All the food cooked right in front of us with all the tricks Since then been back twice. Poor selection of warn wine, very little of the menu that sounds appetising and very small servings. But the price doesn't reflect these shortcomings.... More

When you enter the restaurant, you will question all the good reviews you read but hold on, it's all part of a plan to make it authentic.. the big tables, the community rooms, the smell, the light and everything else that you observe.. I have tasted most things here, the mixed sea-food tepanyaki meal would be the best meal option... More

I wouldn't rave about Daikoku, but it is fine for a dinner out with friends. We had Teppanyaki in a small room, the food was actually quite good (in particular the fish) except for the beef (which in my view had the consistency of leather). Cosy atmosphere, very busy even midweek (you need to book or could be out of... More

We had a Tepanyaki group dinner here for a business meeting. The food was very tasty and generous. My only complaint was that I hoped the chef would have provided more of a 'show'.

I must blame myself for going in with an expectation that Japanese cuisine offers vegan options......their concept of vegan is different and one has to make an effort to make them understand that no meat is to be included in the dishes.....While I cannot entirely blame them for 9.9 out of 10 people visiting must be eating all forms of...

This Japanese Restaurant isn't as clean as the one in Vision City. The food is average and service okay.

A particularly good restaurnt to go to with a small to medium sized group. Good menu and the portions will leave you well sated by the time you depart. Entry is a little "dark" but security is generaly good - a plus in Port MOresby.

Great food, prepared in front of you. Too much food sometimes! We have been a few times, service is variable... One sitting took four hours, another was 90 minutes. The set menus are good value when shared. Good prices and good food, if the servers are on time then it's fun.
