This place is a little gem hidden on a narrow lane off Castlereagh Street. We came here on recommendation from a friend, and were not disappointed! Opting for the buffet, we ate to our heart's content in probably the best BBQ experience I've ever had. The staff were pleasant, despite what seemed like endless ordering from our group. We went...

Nice food, slow bringing it out - we ordered the BBQ so your effectively cooking it yourself so should come out quickly.?? Won't let you order the same thing on the BBQ menu twice....strange rule.!

Make sure you order the wagyu. It's worth the price. Overall it is not too expensive for what you get. We went back twice in a week. Should definitely try!

Went here to catch up with a long time friend that I hadn't seen for a while. Usually, BBQ places tend to be a bit loud but the environment was very reserved and it was easy to engage in conversation because of this. Food was great and was excellent value for money. If one improvement can be suggested, a minor... More

I've been a longtime customer for many years and have always returned for their beef tongue and beef harami, meat is always juicy and tender. Also their seafood salad is highly recommended. One hour order time is more than enough. Charcoal fire gives the food that extra kick. Staff is attentive and doesnt give you the dirty look if you... More

can't wait to stuff myself here again - the beef ribs are the best cut and the raw beef is also amazing.

Enjoyed this place. We were lucky to get a walk in table with no wait. They wee busy. We opted for the $39 set menu and it was very good value. Best bit is the cook your own BBQ at the table. Great place for mates who aren't up for a massive feed and just want a fun evening.

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
