Had dinner with friends. Service and staff were excellent. Our orders were taken quickly and the food and drinks arrived in perfect time. The atmosphere was boisterous, as the restaurant was full. Our meals were tremendous, my wife loved her Lychee cocktail. I particularly liked...the scallop entrée and the beef main . My only complaint is that when I tried to book 2 nights later, I couldn't get in.More

We got takeaway so I would assume the eat in would be better. Although I didn’t enjoy it and it was full of flavour it’s pretty $$$ for a plastic container takeaway … the squid was delicious so was the chicken …

Had dinner last night Service staff were excellent, menu prices were reasonable. Food was also great (tuna sushi rice was a little dry though) Otherwise a great place for a quick meal

Outstanding food, well prepared and presented. Good wine list also. Particularly enjoyed the rare beef titaki(?) dish.... perfectly prepared beef! Good service. Covid protocols observed.

Everything about Takayama made for a fantastic experience. Walking past and seeing that they were very busy we thought we would try our luck and see if they could squeeze us in, and fortunately there was room to be seated at the bar. The service...all night was second to none. The staff were all friendly and helpful, in particular the manager who despite being run off his feet was making time to chat with patrons making all feel welcomed. The food was on point and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite. It’s hard to choose a standout dish as everything was so good, but I would definitely recommend the JFC with wasabi mayo.More

Booked for Good Friday at 6:30 and told we were to be out by 8. fabulous food -but entree was slow which meant we did not have time to complete our meal for checking out our booking time. Ordered a second cocktail and told to...could I drink it quickly. Partner ordered a dessert but told he did not have time to eat it.lol 😅 not a relaxing and intimate night. Great food but really tried to squeeze too many people in. 😙More

Sadly Average for the price The food and drink was expensive for its quality and taste. We (2) shares 3 starters ( small plates ) plus 1 drink for around $70.00 service was good and staff friendly but unfortunately not original Japanese.

Wow, a wonderful welcoming from the owner. A great selection of alcohol and beverages with a simple but delightful selection of food that was scrumptious. The staff were very friendly and gave great service. We even spoke to the chef who kindly gave us some...secret ingredients. Lovely atmosphere and we will definitely be back.More

This restaurant was recommended to me and it didn’t fail in any way. We were delighted to a superb dining experience. We had the salmon as the special and it was outstanding, it was so very fresh, beautifully cooked and delicate in flavour. All the...dishes we ate were fresh and tantalising. We wish you were in Sydney as we would visit often. Well done to all. It can be hard to get in so book early if you can.More
