“Refined Japanese”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Beautifully prepared and presented - delicate and refined. Fish is always very fresh, meat succulent and soft. Very nice ambience, good service, friendly helpful waitstaff. Sake menu extensive. Becoming a fast favourite with our family!

“Very Popular Japanese - Even on a Monday Night”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Had the $98 tasting menu which was very extensive although perhaps not the best value for money. Food quality was excellent (although a clearer description of each course would have been appreciated). Very busy for a Monday night in June while many other places are either quiet or closed. Next time will go for an A La Carte - Menu selected item.

Recommend for groups, friends etc as long as price is not a criterion for selection.

“Amazing Japanese!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

Truly amazing food. Wowed everytime we visit. This is a great place to impress your friends... We've been coming here for years and have introduced so many people and have never heard a bad word. Some people say it is pricey but we always leave full and satisfied without being shocked by the bill. Can't wait for our next visit!!!

“Nice restaurant but very pricey”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

Service and staff were great and fast.

Food quality is good however it very pricey despite with the amount you pay for. Therefore it's probably worth getting the tasters for a well money worth.

Ambience is nice however it can be difficult to have a conversation due to the background noise.

Overall experience is great but not something you go to on a regular basis as this dinning is more of a special occasion as well as the price you pay for.

“Excellent food. Music played could be better”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Food was excellent. The display of food was artistic and beautiful. Only the music played was a bit too 'western'.

i think if the restaurant can choose some traditional Japanese music or light music would be better fit the ambience and theme of the restaurant.
