Very good value for both the food and the chef's entertainment. A restaurant where you can dine a la carte at separate tables or around one of the two teppanyaki tables. As always it is often the character and skills of the teppanyaki chef which...More

Awesome service from the sushi chef, my wife has certain dietary requirements and he was super attentive, making sure she could eat everything he prepared. His attention to detail was second to none. Would definitely go there again.

It was one of those meals that ticked all the boxes technically in terms of variety, freshness, presentation, and service. But just seemed to lack the soul or flavour or something, to qualify as exceptional.

Stayed at the Rutherford and decided to try this restaurant. Had a fish dish which was simple but very tasty and well prepared. Their green tea creme brulee was delightful. Service was a tad slow even though it was not to busy.
