Dinner with family and had high expectations as we love Japanese food, but what disappointment... sashimi was warm (big no-no for good sashimi) and noodles tasted like pad thai. Overall, seemed a bit inexperienced with Japanese cuisine. Can be a great Thai restaurant instead? Misleading...promotional as best Japanese food... could be only Japanese type food in Nowra?More

A two star Japanese restaurant, with basic food served quickly. Colocated with another very noisy restaurant, in northern industrial suburbs of Nowra. Quite misleading to list it as premier restaurant in Berry 20 km away.

We stopped in for lunch after a morning at Currawong Beach for our sons 15th birthday. We ordered lots of different dishes to share and enjoyed everything. Our family of 6 were well looked after with very friendly staff. We had previously ordered takeaway to...have as a picnic on another family outing which was also terrific.More

A sister restaurant to Leaf (housed in the same building) provided and friend and me with a disappointing dining experience this evening. My second visit here and this time really left a sour taste. The problem is they had run out of multiple ingredients which...was not explained to us prior to, or during, ordering. A cocktail was ordered, along with a sashimi platter and Bento Box. The waitress seemed friendly taking the order but shortly another staff member approached and informed they had run out of juice for the cocktail. He made us select a replacement drink on the spot, which is not too unreasonable but he was a bit pushy about it. The Sashimi platter then arrived missing an oyster. The same server explained they had run out but had taken the liberty to swap the oyster with one additional scollop. He sheepishly mentioned they had run out of many things and sodded off. The Bento Box then arrived and was a little on the cold side. Missing the Miso soup, which again I presume they'd run out of. No apology this time nor any attempt to supplement it with something else - they just presumed we'd accept the reduced offering. Time to pay and no real apology provided for missing components of our meal. Of course, the full price was charged and the attendant tried to humour us a bit by saying next time they'd provide the biggest oyster they have or something along those lines. Overall, very disappointing and unmagical compared to our first experience. Yes, sometimes restaurants run out of things but if that's the case you shouldn't attempt to make the customer wear it at full price.More

Ordered the Chicken katsu curry. Yeah, I guess it was nice, but is basically a chicken schnitty with a curry sauce accompanying which tasted so similar to Vermont Curry roux that I'd be surprised if it was something else. You can pick it up at...pretty much any Asian grocer (I use it at home so am very familiar with this brand's taste). Wife ordered a vege ramen which was OK apparently. Not amazing but decent. Lots of it, so it would be good if they had a cheaper size.More

Great food at this Japanese restaurant. Everything we ate was delicious and was nicely presented. Servings were large. The Stairway to Heaven sushi plate is spectacular and delicious. Only complaints = the bench seat at the edge of the restaurant is too high and is...uncomfortable; and the waitress who served us was terrible.... seemed disinterested, unfriendly and grumpy. Will certainly go back for the great food!More

Not that I've tried the whole menu here but most of what I've had has been very good. And I lived in japan for a little while. Quite surprising for Nowra. But there are 2 stars in my opinion. 1, the ramen is very very...good. I like the ginger pork personally. My wife the hot and spicier one. Both are hot and spicy and very filling. 2, the suntory draft beer on tap is very, very, very good. I loved this stuff in Japan. They really do good beer in Japan. Its served very cold and tastes almost moorish. Do try both, repeat the dose if applicable.More

We have take away from here regularly. Delivery is free if you spend a modest amount, easy to do for 2 people. I've never had a bad meal. There has been the odd occasion something in our order has been missed but they've called me...before I've noticed and they send it out immediately. Always good service and wonderful food. Makes me want to go to Japan!More

We enjoyed our dinner in this very busy restaurant. We had made a reservation, and when we arrived there were only 2 tables available, one for us and another for walk-ins. Service was friendly and reasonably ok, and our entrees and mains came out quite...quickly. I had a seaweed salad for my entree, then the pork bento box. My husband had the trio of sashimi then the pork noodle stirfry. All delicious, but we were too full for dessert. The only surprising thing was that of all the places we ate at during our weekend away, Beleaf was the only place that didn't take our details down for COVID. Even when I made the reservation, they didn't want my phone number. All other cafes took our details down for contact tracing in the event it was required. For such a busy and crowded restaurant, they weren't taking the pandemic seriously.More

Having just returned from Japan, it was a nice night out with friends in this restaurant. The food is traditional, not too Australianised. Amazing selection, if you do not like raw food you can get dishes that are fully cooked. Very good service and atmosphere.
