This place charged me $8:50 for a glass of water with my meal. They also neglected to tell me there was a sales tax on my $15 teriyaki, which ended up being $26 and totally not worth it. Sneaky sales tactics!

Eaten here twice with 2 years gap between and if better than your average Japanese restaurant. Decor is simple and space a shopfront but the food is fresh, good, quick and not too expensive. Recommend.

Really enjoyed Roku Den - great options to share or for individual selection. Excellent service in a small but not overcrowded restaurant. Drinks menu a little limited (wine and beer wise) but the food more than made up for it. Highly recommend!

Very small place with an authentic feel even though in surf capital Torquay.. Lovely food, freshly cooked, genuine local Japanese atmosphere. Warm relaxed staff. Pork balls nice and sweet.
