I really like a couple of their special dishes.. including Chirashi salad (sashimi, green soba noodles, salad leaves, tempura crumbs and a yummy sauce), but others are less than memorable. Service is often very slow. I once waited 40mins for take away early one evening when there were only a couple of tables occupied.

This place is one of the best restaurants in Wollongong, the food is amazing, you really get what you pay for, the teriyaki Salmon bento box is my favourite, it's so delicious and cooked to perfection! My partner gets the sashimi and says that it is so fresh and yummy!! Definitely worth going to, can't wait to go again!!

An impromptu night out and a great revelation. Fresh sashimi and a variety of flavours to liven up your taste buds. These are good quality, well priced eats. Plates are beautifully presented. BYO or licensed with reasonable prices on the drinks (Sapporo for $6.50). Good atmosphere too. Recommended as a first time and any number of returns.

The food is good and fresh. The place is not big, what is not bad. But the staff is not so fast. Anyway, it worth to wait.

Have been to this restaurant several times but service tonight was pretty abyismal. Dinner arrived back to front, but even then the first dish took forty minutes. The sushi took more than an hour and they didn't even have to cook it. The food here is always fresh but on this Saturday night they seemed to concentrate on takeaways rather... More

Great dinner. Entrees served at right time. Fresh, perfectly cooked dishes. Prompt service and usual top quality. As I said- we are here fortnight and will keep coming back for more. My favourite- salmon tempura roll.

This is just a small local sushi restaurant without pretentions to be anything more than a good local place. I kind of liked it. Over several visits I tired several dishes. All were just fine. Nothing was particularly memorable. The service was a little spotty, but always polite. Its location across the alley from a bottle shop means it attracts... More

We are here often but this week it slipped a bit. Dishes served in odd order- we finished with miso soup. Slow service and sold out of favourites (by 7pm on a Friday night!). Very entertained by a group of loud talkers seated near us- felt like we knew them well by the end of the meal!

We ordered for 4 people (guests) - 2 x salmon bento which had about 7 over cooked little pieces of salmon, rice and very average minute salad. The soup was ok. I ordered California rolls and again terrible and not what a Californian rolls should. Sashimi a bit tough. Definitely I will never go back there and not recommend it.... More

The food here is fresh and made to order - you can even see the chef's excellent knife skills as they create the sushi behind a glass partition. The sashimi is delicious. A great, healthy option for dinner.
