Hidden gem.

If you want an easy but really nice authentic Japanese meal, this is the place. We go there every week and love it.

First time we've been back here since having our daughter. We had a gorgeous meal, with free wine or soft drink as we were eating early. Chicken katsu was great, as was my husband's beef dish. Very friendly & accommodating, bringing plastic plates, cups etc for our toddler without being asked.

Definitely enjoyed this! Location was just off Argyle, so still a good location, and yet tucked away in the little lane so you are away from any noise. The food was lovely. Reasonably priced (2 entrees and two mains with some sides approx $70), and a free drink between 6pm-7pm. Recommend the sashimi (would have loved bigger ginger pieces for... More

This place came highly recommended by a friend of ours so we thought to check it out. It looked like a cafe but the waiting staffs were really friendly and efficient. The lunchtime menu was about $15-20 each for the bento set which was good value. The salad was fresh, good miso soup, the teriyaki chicken and the don katsu... More

Quiet little Japanese restaurant off the beaten path. We had the Sashimi 15pc and a soup for $46. The fish was fresh, i was surprised it didn't come with rice or anything. Half of it was salmon, i would have liked a little more variety.
