I was there during the spring festival and didn't expect to be fit in without a reservation, but they accommodated me! Really friendly waitress, very accommodating. The food was yummy. I got a mix of veggies, beef and miso cooked over a leaf and it was a fun, tasty experience.

I arrived on a Tue, which most of the restaurants were closed. So, just popped in this one in an ally. Was quite surprised that it's full of foreigners and was thinking it maybe a tourist trap. But, it turned out that the food was nice! We order hida beef with miso on hoba leaf and without miso. It won't... More

Make a reservation so you won't be disappointed as this is a popular restaurant and yet the staff maintains a very personable attitude. The chef himself made our sukiyaki at our tatami room. All good, all delicious, reasonable price.

We enjoyed Suzuya two nights in a row. The service, staff and atmosphere is really good. I am unsure if the staff speak little English or simply talk Japanese to retain the atmosphere. Communication was not a problem. First night we tried Sukiyaki (see photo) which was cooked by our hostess approximate cost of meal AUD 20 each - no... More

We emailed the restaurant to try and book a table but they were already fully booked as it was the day of the Spring Festival. However they said we could arrive at 5pm when they open and then see if they can squeeze us in. So we turned up at about 5.10pm expecting not to be successful and the restaurant... More

On our first visit here we were turned away because we did not make any reservations. So we immediately booked for the following night. So, reservations is a must in order to secure a place. So it was with much anticipation that we arrived the second night. However when we turned up the second night, to our astonishment, we were... More

Looking at the out reviews I expected a little bit more. The food was ok but not too exciting. The staff was super friendly, attentive and quick, even though the place was completely full.

Service started slowly because a group of tourists walked in just after us. Past the initial frustration, things picked up nicely. We (a family of 6) enjoyed a couple of takes on the local hida beef (yakiniku-style and hoba miso with beef). For those who wanted something different there was tonkatsu porc on the menu (which 2 kids opted for).... More

We visited the place on a Tuesday night, we had the beef bbq... althought a bit pricey (2500 to 3500 yens), it's really worth it. The place is also to be distinguished for the very typical atmosphere, with three Japanese ladies running the show, and a younger guy. They are amazingly gentle and very helpful. A place to visit for... More
