“Not so good ...”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We'd heard good things about this place but we must've caught them on a bad day because everything we ordered was greasy. Didn't enjoy it at all and probably won't go back.

“Ginza Japanese Restaurant- Top Notch.”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Very generous servings. We were a group of five and everyone left full and smiling without an empty wallet. It was such a treat to have a delightfully creative menu of rolls, nigiri, sashimi and japanese stirfry. The green tea was particularly delicious, the large plate of sashimi was incredible- the tuna melted in my mouth and the bed of fresh radish shavings and presentation was picture perfect. The staff were helpful, polite and attentive. Our waitress remembered every aspect of our multi-plate mega order without skipping a beat. I look forward to returning for a seat at the sushi bar- it would be a treat to watch the itamae in action!

“Chicken or Beef Box”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Tempura batter is it not the best! Dine upstairs, downstairs, or outside on the patio. Great atmosphere, and fantastic food.

“Ok restaurant but expensive”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This place serves decent Japanese food and sushi but it is quite expensive. The service is prompt and friendly. The location is convenient.
