This is a great little restaurant out of central Cairns but it's close to the botanical gardens and the Tanks Centre. The food is fresh, tasty and authentic, both the sashimi and cooked dishes. It also has Japanese beer and sake. Everything was good, the eggplant and scallops, and the specials were really nice. Very friendly and efficient service as well.

Visiting Cairns for work and ate here based on the reviews. The food was delicious, especially the miso eggplant. A small restaurant with a varied and authentic Japanese home cooking and sushi menu. Great price and value for the quality. Eat here

Convenient little Japanese restaurant right near the Tanks Arts Centre and Botanic Gardens in Edge Hill and a great place to dine before a show/performance. The food is authentic and the service is fast which is important when you are on a time schedule. It is probably best to book ahead on show nights (we were lucky to get a table before Judith Lucy as Haruka and almost all the restaurants in town were packed out). Licensed and the red wine is served chilled in true Japanese style. I recommend ordering an entree as Japanese mains are not huge in terms of portion size. Plenty of parking. Definitely worth a go.

We enjoyed our meal in this very small (six tables inside, one outside) Japanese restaurant. The food is reasonably priced and very good. We noticed that most of the customers are Japanese, which tells you something about the quality of the food. My favorite feature is the "cake of the day" for dessert. I am a big dessert man so that just made my day.

Want amazing Japanese food but don't have the time to travel to Japan? This is the place for you.
The food is always amazing. We usually come here for birthdays and even twice on new year's eve. We've recommended it to multiply friends and they all agree. The price is reasonable and you always walk out of there happy.
Really. Try this place!
