Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We've eaten here previously and were looking forward to going again. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The service of staff was great though. We both ordered from the menu, chicken gyozas and karage chicken and rice. Gyozas were tasteless without soy sauce and the karage...chicken blande and soggy. This and one plate each from the train was very overpriced at $65More

It is really unfortunate seeing this place change so much in such a short period of time. The customers are not treated the same as they used to be. We went for dinner last night and we used to go to kinoko almost every week...and after another bad experience we decided to write a review. It is so sad that hospitality in Byron changed so much, there is no much care for the customer anymoreMore

Kinoko is a lovely Sushi train/restaurant in the middle of the bustling Byron Bay. A modern and comfy setting with friendly staff. A favourite of ours every time we visit!

We enjoyed Kinoko twice when in Byron recently. A modern take on Japanese classics. Tasty and fairly standard Byron pricing. They accomodated kids well.

We had takeaway as the restaurant was busy. Staff expected us to take from the transit when we wanted to order a main meal. After much confusion we ordered. We quick to be made - 15 minutes. Portion size was fine but the quality was...pretty terrible. Not well cooked or presented. Might be different if you eat in - was very expensive takeaway and the children ended up leaving their meals in favour of fruit!More

Although the food in itself was very tasty - it is simply not worth the price. I would consider other options

Very limited menu and limited options on the train. Good location in centre of byron, what we did have was very fresh and yummy. Kitchen closes very early which is disappointing in byron which has such an amazing nightlife

The most bizarre Japanes restaurant I have ever visited. Travelled all throughout the world and never meet a manger that puts food on a sushi train thatbcould gave travelled from Bryon Bay to Tokyo - round and round the crab sushi went all night. Patrons...sat there all night memorised by food they did not want to eat, finally after the 8pm call for ni food to be ordered- tasty food suddenly appeared. 212 dollars later and thrusting for Maccies I left pissed off. Don't go there!More

Food was great, staff was awesome very polite and helpful, made sure we were happy and asked if we needed anything. Only reason for no 5 star review was it’s just a bit expensive but the quality of the food is awesome.
