Really surprised by the quality for the price (and that's it's all you can eat). The range isn't massive, but everything we ordered was delicious.

Great food, friendly service. The food was all soooo fresh and tasty. They have a great variety of Japanese food. If you don't like fish or raw foods however, you'd probably not enjoy yourself as much as we did. It's great value for money at just $40.95. We will definitely be back.

My partner took me here for my birthday. I loved it, the food was delicious. The only negative was the waitress was new and kept bringing other tables orders and didn't understand when we told her it wasn't ours. I still loved the whole experience and will be back again for sure

At first I was skeptical about an all-you-can-eat Japanese experience but I was pleasantly surprised. The food comes out fresh straight to your table. It was lovely to be able to eat as much or as little as you like of the same things or try out some different things that you might not ordinarily order. Restaurant decor is extremely... More

Outstanding range of great Japanese offered on "All you can eat" menu. Traditional Japanese décor sets the mood for your dinner. IF you are a Japanese food lover, you must try Isshin.

You need to book your two hour slot. Then arrive and start ordering your selection. $37.95 a head and with smallish but adequate portions you can be adventurous. The quality is first class and you keep cheerfully re-ordering. The service is friendly and efficient. The BYO (on wine) also keeps the price down. Really worth a visit and it will... More

I'd been to the forest hill restaurant so thought this one would be great as well. The quality of the food was good but I think forest hill was a bit better. Was happy with the experience and service

Isshin house is one of my favourite places to go for any occasion. For starters, all you can eat Japanese for $37.95, for that price you'd assume it would be cheap food, but that assumption is COMPLETELY wrong. I have been here 10+ times and I can't wait to go back again. The food is fantastic, the staff are great,... More
