Dont go here if you like your space. Do go here if you want fast, amazing food. Japanese tea is a must and the authentic Japanese rice dishes are of the highest quality. This is what fast food should be.

Although this restaurant seems rather small and not very modern the food it serves is delicious. They do however not serve alcohol but you can pay a small corkage charge to take your own. The service is very fast and although there is usually a queue it is well worth the wait!

Food was great!!! Came out VERY fast (possibly too fast haha). Can BYO. Staff aren't friendly but that's because they are so busy I suppose. Had the Gyoza and a Chicken and rice dish (forgot the name which is unhelpful) but was very very yummy and very well priced. Would happily go back.

Wow. The food is just amazing! Awesome flavours and gorgeous presentations. The service is fast and the staff is really nice. Super for dining in and take away. Really, truly a diamond hidden in a normal looking street.

Very reasonable cafe and very quick service, even when we were in on a busy Saturday lunchtime. Good variety of dishes and served very quickly. Great for a snack or a more hearty lunch than just a sandwich.

We came here for lunch on a Sunday. We had vegetable gyoza, tofu don, prawn don and edamame. The place is very informal, slightly cramped, but with good and friendly service. Our food was average but certainly very good for the price; the sauces were slightly sweet but we asked for some soy sauce and salt and everything was very... More

I often went there when I had to grab a quick bite in my lunch break, they have fresh and fast food and their dumplings are amazing! It's a really small place and they don't have a lot of tables, but you can always order Take out and when it's sunny you can eat it at the Pavillion Gardens which... More
