We went to sake for a business dinner. The food was superb and service was top class. It was not authentic japanese food but sort of fusion and westernized japanese dishes. Actually one of the dishes seemed to be inspired by korean food 'bo ssam'....More

Contemporary Japanese food and traditional favourites served by friendly and helpful staff. Be sure to ask for suggestions to make the most of the great menu.

This place is highly overrated. Whilst the venue and ambience is fantastic, the food is pretty average. What’s more is the wait staff are quite unfriendly and very slow. Won’t be heading back.

It's Modern Japanese restaurant. If you want to eat authentic Japanese, I don't recommend. Anyway Food and atmosphere is cool... ロックス内にあるモダン日本料理店。日本料理ではありません。欧米人が好きそうなフュージョン日本料理屋さん。ロケーション、店の雰囲気はかなり良いです。またスタッフも9割以上がローカルまたは白人でサービスも◎。値段はそれなりにします。

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and

Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
