Up witht he best

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've been to in Sydney, and quite reasonably priced as well. A list of the daily fresh seafood and where it's from authenticates the providence. Stick to the seafood, it's very fresh and delicious.

I am Japanese and I believe this restaurant is as good as good Japanese restaurants in Japan. I have tried many Japanese restaurants in Australia and this one is the best as far as I know. The price range is not bad, so I can recommend this restaurant to anybody.

If you want a perfect sushi... this is the place to go! Amazing sushi, sashimi and pickles ...not to mention sake and fabulous choice.

We went there for a family birthday party, following several recommendations. The food was generally very good indeed, but the sense of special occasion was spoilt by some inconsistent service. We'd booked for the early sitting and understood that the table was only ours until 8.00, but the rude way they demanded we order any desserts at 7.30 (even though... More

This place exceeded expectations. We've been craving sushi through out 3 week adventure through New Zealand and Australia and this did not disappoint. We ordered more than we thought we could finish, but it was so good that we did finish every bite! The rolls are a bit pricey but their sashimi is outstanding. It was fresh and delicious! The...

We ordered the sashimi boat and was very impressed by the freshness of it. We also enjoyed the miso steak which was extremely juicy and tender. We did not enjoy the special David Blackmore steaks which were a special menu item. It was simply seared and presented extremely rare. I think for wagyu beef, the fat needs to be rendered... More

Went with a friend during lunch rush hour and were seated immediately. Bento boxes hover around the $18-$20 range. We each got one with wagyu, I chose the yakiniku and he opted for the one with miso sauce. Food came out within 5 mins, in huge sectioned bowls about 25-30cm in diameter. It all went downhill from here. The sides... More

This has to be one of the top japanese restaurant in Sydney. My boyfriend and I came here for a special occasion celebration and it was a perfect place to do so. All the food we ordered was delicious and fresh. And more importantly, service was really good. Sashmi Boat - Every single piece of fish is fresh and just... More

Went out for a work function and we decided to get a bit of everything. All seven of us were very happy with the food and there was nothing left, except maybe a couple of Edamames. Service was spot on and all reasonably priced. Thanx.
