Loved the place. Good was great, service was good and the atmosphere was good to. We had some tapas and enjoyed everything we tried. Only downfall was not being able to split the bill. Having tapas, and a few couples and individuals there we spent nearly as long working out what people had to pay for as we did eating.

The kids shared a Japanese kaarage and even enjoyed the miso soup. The service was excellent and the seafood fresh. Can't ask for much more than that.

Staff were extremely attentive and our food came out promptly. My partner ordered the teriyaki squid, and we got the beef teppanyaki to share along with... More

On a recent visit to Townsville, I was advised by work colleagues to have dinner here as it was close to where we were staying. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and water was on the way along with some cocktails. For starters we ordered the Soft Shell Crab and the Yakitori (I hope I spelt this right) Chicken. The... More

Have been here a few times with my mates, and every time a it has been great. Restaurant looks a bit run down, but don't let that fool you. Food is amazing and service is very good. Only problem is the bill cannot be split so come prepared. Would recommend this place to anyone after a good Japanese feed.

My whole family love it here. Great service, fast meals. Family friendly. Plenty of seating & parking. Fresh sashimi, go the large one. Great value meal deals. Yummy soft shell crab sushi. Great cold Asahi Beer, a little dear tho, but goes oh so well with the meal & the heat of TSV.

This place is an absolute gem. Hands down the best Japanese I have had in a long time and EASILY the best customer service I have experienced in Townsville. Even down to menu choices, when I questioned some of the flavours in several dishes I had never tried, the waitress was more than happy to make suggestions as to which... More
