This seemed to me to be a restaurant that was struggling. The service was almost non existent. The confusion was palpable. We were given someone else's food and Bill. The place was only 25% occupied, so I hate to think what it is like on a busy night. The dishes were weighted heavily to meaty portions covered in sauces. The... More

We had an excellent meal here. One of our firends loves Japanese and even for me being not a massive fan of Japanese and no seafood eater there was so much great stuff to have. Everyone who had seafood loved it. The pork maki was outstanding! Have to come back!

Another great family meal ay Kyushu...we have been regulars for well over a decade now, and it never disappoints! The Japanese offerings are tasty and fresh, and the menu has a good choice. The service is quick (note that there are 2 sitting times for dinner). Always busy so a booking essential (not a quiet couples restaurant) and we love... More

No need to gush about the decor and all that, if you want trendy you won't find it here. However that's because their main focus is the food not all the furniture. Every time we go here the food is the same and always always exemplary. Sushi and Sashimi fresh cuts and thick slices. Tempura's, Udon soups and and Caparccio's... More

We had not been for a while and went last night. We have been missing out on possibly the best Japanese food you could find and fantastic value. BYO and licensed which we love. Took some Plantagenet reds and they worked so well with the food. Will be back soon. so good.

The only restaurant (to my knowledge) where you find dishes such as pork maki and beef tataki, both excellent. Sushi and sashimi super fresh and delicious. Great sake cold or hot. Do not go there for a romantic dinner, it is noisy as hell but part of the fun. One really goes to Kyushu for the food. Service is not... More

My boss recommends this very well-known Japanese restaurant in Neutral Bay. I have to say the Teriyaki Chicken is the best ever. Service are excellent and food are fresh.

I have been to this place weeknight and loved the food and service. DO NOT COME ON THE WEEKEND! Service is very bad and slow and they miss orders; people literary sit on top of you whilst waiting and at the end i could not even sit down back at my table because people would not move. Very disappointing. Need... More

We used to go there alot. Particularly when it was across the road. I don't know what has happened but now it's terrible. It is now noisy and the service is bad. We were there with friends and I have to say I was embarrassed by the service. Almost Faulty Towers. It took AGES to get our entrée and I... More
