We attended the restaurant recently with our extended family and had the gourmet buffet. It was very busy and I would recommend booking first. You only have 60 mins ordering time once you have started so things can get a bit hectic. It is not cheap but if you are reasonable eaters there is value in the buffet! The food... More

Had dinner here with a friend from Toronto recently, and we both enjoyed the atmosphere. You most CERTAINLY need to make a booking and turn up on time - this place gets VERY busy indeed. The sashimi was very fresh and delicious, so we ordered 3 lots... We ordered different types of marinated chicken for the BBQ (at the table),... More

We had a booking and arrived on time, the staff kicked us out and gave our seats to someone else!! Unbelievable they are in such a rush and without even calling me before canceling my booking? So disappointed with their service.

One of my favourite bbq restaurants. Great value for money. Delicious food and those beef tongue are addictive. Good service. I can't wait to go back.

Tiny, cozy restaurant with great variety of meat. Great service as always. Pretty good lunch special as well, would not go there for takeaway though.

A friend recommended us this jap bbq near martin's place. It is situated at the corner of Medina Apartments at a back alley. We opted for the ala carte as we were not feeling very hungry. We ordered salad, pork, beef tongue, beef ribs, squid. The beef tongue and ribs were excellent and well marinated, super succulent..mmmm! The other dishes... More

Pricey as it may seem ($55 per person - all you can eat), it is well worth the price! Unlimited sashimi, raw wayyu beef, BBQ ribs, etc... are so perfectly delicious! Customer service is pretty good, compared to some other doggy all-you-can-eat restaurants. No doggy rules, no limit, as long as you are not wasting the food. As I'm still... More

Most of the staff are not friendly and bad service .with bad attitudes. They seems like not willing to service customer such as they feel unhappy to add ones. Not patient to service customers.make people uncomfortable to enjoy our dinner . Food is good but services is so disappointed. Need to improve their services .

Portions are small, but it's a buffet so just order more. We got the premium buffet and enjoyed it sooo much. It's well worth the extra $10. The meats here were fresh, which is the most important thing in any restaurant. It is especially important when they serve a raw meat dish with the raw egg and you have to... More

Wanted something close to our hotel. Checked out the reviews of the options and decided on the Suminoya. Walked 5 minutes to be greeted, given our table, menu explained and older given. We did the standard cook your own banquet with several side dishes added. You have 90 minutes and can't order after an hour but can continue to cook.... More
