“Stunning food and venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

The food and service at this restaurant was excellent. The decor and style of the place is also top class. We enjoyed lots of wonderful entrees, mains and desserts. There was plenty of choices for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. The specials were great too. The food combines authentic japanese cuisine with a modern twist and some fusion with other cuisines. There were 6 of us and everyone loved it. Great choice of dink option too from cocktails to wines.

“Simply one of the best meals we have ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

The food is amazing, the service was brilliant. You would find it difficult to beat the experience. The people on this site that reviewed this restaurant poorly must be kidding.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Excellent food - reasonable prices - in a lane-way so don't expect a view. For a quiet Sunday afternoon, service was slow and wait person quite cold - it was ok but didn't get the total food, service and atmosphere package we expected based on previous reviews.

“Interesting and yummy food in a fantastic venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

Paper Planes will not disappoint. This is a fantastic modern Japanese restaurant that doesn't stop at just preparing exciting and great tasting food. The restaurant fit-out includes a thousand-odd colourful skateboards with numerous Japanese characters etc printed on them attached to the ceiling, along with the obligatory paper cranes and other modern-twists on Japanese culture.

Really adding to the atmosphere on the night was the live DJ they had playing. It wasn't too loud - in fact, it was easy to talk with other people at the table - and was really quite good.

We chose to share a few dishes for dinner, but the menu is also easily adaptable if you want to hog your own selection. The "Salmon Nachos" are really exciting - with just the right amount of wasabi. We also had the lettuce cups, sashimi plate, and the special sushi roll of the day - which left us feeling pretty full.

It's not cheap food, but it's well worth it.
