Ordered take away with some friends, and was just as happy as always. We ordered a bunch of things to share, which were ready in 20 minutes, which I think is pretty great (ordered at about 6.15pm). Food included sushi and sashimi, Japanese pancake, tempura vegetables, chicken skewers and eggplant. All was so yummy, you can just tell the quality... More

Got to be honest, don't really know much about Japanese food as I have always associated it heavily with seafood and i don't eat any seafood. So when I found out that's where a birthday dinner was going to be I was a little apprehensive. That being said I was very surprised the food was excellent, extremely fresh and flavoursome,... More

We had an enjoyable experience Japanese style! Great service, lovely ambience, delicious food. The staff were very good at explaining the dishes. They were prompt with service and advice. The serves were generous, fresh and appealing to the palate.

We dine here often as it is the best Japanese food in the area. A reasonable range and always beautiful - they don't try to do too much. Unlike Japan, restaurants here serve more than one specialty dish so you can choose without having to go from restaurant to restaurant.

The staff were very friendly and helped us choose the dishes best suited to us. Two of our NewZealand friends had not tried Japanese food before they were very impressed

Food was nice. Typical options, nothing to write home about but will satisfy a Japanese craving. Service was mixed. When we entered we had to speak to 3 people before we were seated, not because it was busy, but because the first 2 staff members forgot about us - not just an assumption we actually asked one of them if...
