Excellent lunch menu, you get a basic one choice with all the extras like soup, salad, rice, and then for $5 can add on other dishes, great selection, service swift and food just lovely. My go to Japanese lunch place and never has disappointed

Popped in based on TripAdvisor reviews and because we generally love Japanese food. Good menu here and reasonable price point. The restaurant was half full when we arrived at 7:15pm without a booking on a Saturday. No problem getting a seat. The food was nice. Not spectacular, but fair. The service on the other hand was a real let down.... More

This is a lovely restaurant on Hood street. The staff and chef very friendly. We ordered 2 entrees and 2 light meals and had asked if they could come together as we wanted to sample and share the different choices between myself and my husband......sushi roll, tempura vegetables, mixed sushi and dumplings (I think was the forth one). We thoroughly... More

Great place for a light lunch Japanese style. Cheap and nutritious food. Always a great spot for a quick lunchtime catch up with someone.

Meals were delivered fast, and were too much for me to eat - we both ordered Teriyaki Chicken, delicious!

We both ordered the bento box with teriyaki salmon ($29 for miso soup, 2x gyoza, 5x pieces tempura, 5x nigiri sushi, salad, and the eponymous teriyaki salmon on rice). It was more than I could eat and made for delicious leftovers when reheated the next day. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxed dinner.
