Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Friendly, helpful staff and fast efficient service. Ambience/atmosphere is a bit lacking (you are essentially eating in a shopping centre/mall outlet), and it's far from fancy dining if that's what you're after. But the food was well prepared and tasted fresh, and the staff couldn't...have been more eager to please.More

Good food though if choosing the sushi train option only has variety of different types of sushi doesn’t really have other options. You can order off the menu though which is a little pricey. It can add up overtime as it charges per plate. Food...was good thoughMore

Dined here for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Had 11 plates of different selections. All were freshly made by the two staff in the open kitchen in front of you. The owner was an active player in the business, taking orders with a smile, from...guests for special selections that were not on the train platters. The fish was fresh, and rice perfectly cooked. Pricing was reasonable along with the portion sizes on the plates. 8 coloured plates at prices from $4.50 up. Located in the middle of the CBD, upstairs in the orchid plaza.More

You can find this sushi-restaurant on the first floor. We had a very good dinner experience. You can take sushi from the moving line or order from the menu. You pay in the end the amount of little plates. The sushi was very fresh, good...taste and a lot of vegetarian options as well. Service was excellent, you feel they have passion for the job. Would really reccoment.More

There’s good, fresh, tasty food at this restaurant. And the staff are very helpful. But this “train” became a sushi a la carte while we were here when it was down to two plates on the conveyor belt. Half the enjoyment of a train is...to see what new thing is coming past and choose. I really did enjoy the food. But the train experience left a bit to be desired.More

We loved the food here. It's a relatively small restaurant but the food served will NOT disappoint you! We particularly enjoyed the tuna sashimi and the fried oysters.
