Pretty Average Japanese Food

We were a group of eight people and while the service was polite and prompt the quality of the food served was pretty average. My wife and I shared a sushi and sashimi mixed plate and a rainbow roll. The flavors of the roll were pleasant but the rice was not cooked properly or rolled tightly... read more

You shouldn't have to walk to the delivery drivers car in the rain if you're paying a $4.50 delivery fee. The food was bland and over priced. The tempura was boxed with the noodles and delivered soggy. This place is a nightmare.. Never again. Do yourself a favor and choose a different Japanese resto.

We have been coming for about 14 years now and still our favourite Japanese restaurant. Have always found the food to be fresh and a great variety. We tend to get the dinner boxes regularly and have never been disappointed. Also really great value for money!

We go to this place quite often, as it's cheap and yummy. You can usually get in without a booking if you're a small group, but be prepared to wait if you have a few people with you. Service can be a bit slow but always polite and friendly. The dinner boxes are good value here and there's plenty of... More

The food here really wasn't to my taste, and I found it overall to be quite grim. I ordered a beef teriyaki bento box for dinner, which cost around $15. The accompanying gyosa was rubbery and pale. The food was edible, but for $15 I can think of much better places to eat. One upside was that the service was... More

The atmosphere here is casual modern dining, with some light and tasteful theming - but not overdone. Well priced range of dishes, including classics like teriyaki chicken which are amazing. Moderately priced with a busy feel, its a great restaurant for quick meal with friends, but probably not for a quiet restaurant to spend the entire evening at. Once again-... More

very ordinary food. japanese food made with too much batter and designed for australians - not good japanese. service was polite; the place was not too busy but first course took more than half an hour and then it all arrived fairly quickly. Noisy, so hard to have a conversation without shouting.

The food is very good, the prices are cheap and you can always get a table. The sushi is very high quality and the teriyaki chicken is amazing! If I had to find a negative, it's that it gets really noisy. The wine list is basic but the prices are as cheap as buying it from a bottle shop. This... More

Looked busy enough to think it may be a good place to eat however could not get out fast enough! Food was extremely below average both in service and food. I would say it was typically mainland Chinese. The Sukiyaki was more like a Singaporean or Chinese steamboat with No TASTE. Cancelled the rest of the meal and we left.Imitations... More

We have been to Asakusa a number of times, we stay close by and find that there is always a table available. The service is prompt and very pleasant. More importantly, the food, especially the 'cold' items, are really great. The 'cooked' food is also good, and the 'dinner sets' are really worth a try. Excellent value, we will return... More
