My wife and I came here for dinner, having watched this place on our nightly walks past being refurbished late last year. Its' not large, approx. 20 small wooden tables but is a nice quiet place with simple decore. Try for a table in the front of the restaurant so you can watch the chef working his magic creating beautifully looking cold dishes like sashi and sushi rolls. First up, things I really liked were: all the flavours worked very well and the food is tasty and fresh, they have an extensive menu (Japanese fusion with influences from Korea), the presentation is great, and there is an extensive range of reasonably priced wines by the glass - mostly just $8. There are chef's specials, sushi rolls, small plates to be shared, 5 salad options and 8 "bigger plates."
We started with the sashimi carpaccio (a chef's special, $26) which consisted of a selection of sashimi; we thought the squid and octopus were a little tough and this dish is not very large for the price. We moved on to prawn & fish tempura ($14, beautifully cooked in very light batter), papaya salad ($15, we asked for it to be spicy and it was!), 2 cups of miso soup (just $3 each, a bargain), Agedashi tofu ($10, silky tofu, tomatoes, zucchini in a broth that was too salty to eat), spicy creamy prawns (4 prawns on skewers for $14, yummy); finished off with a lovely dessert of mixed ice cream ($12). Service was a tad slow, but friendly - they told us on the way out they were down one person that night. Overall, the cost was $126 which included 3 glasses of white wines and 1 coconut juice. We'll be back for sure.
