Weekend lunch with three friends. It was nearly 2pm so the restaurant was not busy. Service was woeful and meals came out staggered, up to 20min apart. Like they had never served a group before! Had to chase up meals twice. Drinks came out half an hour after they were ordered. Oishii salad was awful, drenched in mayo with hardly any seafood. Friend's prawn salad was good. Chicken noodle dish had one piece of chicken in the entire bowl. Service soooo slow. Waitress was clearly sick and sniffled through our order. Nice view and good location but that is all. Just a bad experience all round. Would not recommend.

This is a great spot for a Sunday lunch on a shady open terrace which is puppy friendly. Excellent food and service. Two entres and a main plus a bottle of Tempest Two Verdelho and change from $100! We will definitely be back.

We had dinner here twice during our stay. Good quality food, decent sized portions and at a reasonaable price - it does get busy so make a booking. I loved the Teppan Yaki (chicken) that was served with Miso soup and the Thai fish cakes were very good.

Best restaurant in Pokolbin for quality and value for money. We are very regular visitors and they always leave us astounded especially with their tepan yaki beef and miso soup. Thankyou to the fantastic staff for all the wonderful memories.

There is a good selection of both Japanese and Thai food. The tempura was fresh and you could add to the menu eg Tempura vegetables to go with the tempura prawns.
Although they allow byo wine with $9/ bottle corkage they have a good selection of both hot and cold sake
