... the food and service were first class. The booking policy of having to pre-select the degustation or signature menu to guarantee a dinner reservation were a little restrictive and frustrating, as was the strict adherence to the booking cancellation policy when one of our group were unable to attend on the night. This aside the food on the Signature Menu was Japanese food at it's finest. The entrees were beautifully presented, the sashimi platter was huge (26 types of seafood!!) and we only managed to conquer half of it. The wagyu beef was fantastic and the dessert light and refreshing as we were full by this stage. We had two bottles of wine that matched well. The service was excellent. A special dining experience, although rather on the expensive side.

After numerous visits we were back to check out the degustation. The highlights were the sushi platter, sashimi box, salmon /zucchini tray. Attention to detail as always is outstanding and very good service. On refection it has lost its edge compared to previous visits. Quite a few of the flavors had a sameness to them. Overuse of yuzu.
Still a favorite spot to enjoy Japanese cuisine.

We celebrated our son's birthday. We had to check to see if they were able to cater for all our party. One of the party didn't eat seafood, and two don't eat meat or chicken. When we arrived the restaurant had made up three different menus to cover the different meal requirements. The restaurant is very good, food was superb, the staff very professional.

I have only
Been here a few times, years apart, but once again I was so impressed by the diverse menu, the attentive and informative staff, amazing food and venue! Such a well priced degustation menu too. I had the matching wine and sake and it was plentiful and interesting. Great for a date night. Thanks for an awesome experience :)
