My wife and I dined here after a movies night. Katsura is located in the old Rendezvous hotel which is now known as the Grand Millennium. The setting of the restaurant is inviting and staff are attentive. The food selection is awesome, we had the California style sushi rolls which were AAAA++++. Other dishes such as the salmon and prawn rice dishes are great as well. Thursday and Friday features the seafood buffet option as well. The price is up there, but the food is great too.

We don't eat Japanese meals too often but this hotel based Japanese restaurant was really enjoyable. The only offer available on the evening was a buffet style and the range and quality of the food was outstanding. The staff were very helpful and talked us through all the dishes and gave us advice about what to eat and in what sequence. Its not a cheap buffet at around 80 dollars each but we thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to others.

Have only been here for lunch, however, it is an excellent venue, quite mid week, with great food.
They also do a buffet on Fridays.
