Dined on the chefs signature menu. It was a very mixed bag - hiramasa kingfish was really, really superb, beef tataki was good, but then things went downhill and everything else was fairly average or indeed poor. Given the price point, this was extremely disappointing....More

Wow.....cant pick our favourite dish, although the pop corn shrimp & Wagu beef were sensational, my impression is if i came and ordered another 5 different dishes i'd be writing the same review. Definately returning and recomending.

Always a loud, vibrant and backed place to go. Make sure you book in advance. Popcorn shrimp is great as is the house sake. Third time here and will be back.
