I always enjoy the chicken teriyaki salad. Always made fresh and there is always plenty of salad and vegies included. Good price and quick friendly service. Like most of the cafes beside it there are good views over the main beach.

After the family and I had spend a few hours at the beach it was time for some tucker to warm us up. This place was fairly empty apart from a table of Japanese customers. Seeing as the menu was mostly Japanese and the chef looked Japanese we figured we were onto a good thing! Overall I guess we were... More

Was early evening after big drive to get to the Mount. Unfortunately place smelt of cooking oil from deep fried chips - shame when sushi is so healthly. Had the seafood chowder which was filled with lots of seafood & came with garlic bread - excellent price but way, way too hot. Husband had teriyaki salmon & daughter had sushi... More

The udon i ordered is really nice, but the large mocha is really poor, I can only taste light milk, I told the lady who served me, and I've been told that I have to tell them if I want more than 1 coffee shot. In my understanding, when we pay for a large coffee, we are not only pay... More

Having just finished our walk off the Mt we were pretty hungry! Being a Sunday afternoon all the eating places were busy but Oceanside had a few empty tables outside. A little hesitant seeing as everywhere else was full but we ventured in and the lovely waitress showed us to a table with a great view of the beach. I... More

it was 7.45pm on a Tuesday night, almost everything else was closed and I chose this place because it looked more fun than the other alternative that wasn't a kebab house and the menu was predominantly Japanesey ...I was met by a super friendly dude. I ordered the sashimi plate, 8 pieces and the teriyaki chicken salad to be chased... More

We poped in for a coffee, but the food was so yummy looking in the cabinets. We could not help ourselves. All home made and extremely good portions. Highly recommended.

What a great location, with lovely view. The food was excellent...possibly marginally long in coming but hey we were there to chill and chat...and the food was obviously just cooked...not sittings around waiting for someone to order. So food was great and fresh. The service was excellent..thank you ladies.

I took my daughter to lunch here last month. I love the Chicken Teriyaki Salad. Once again it was great. My daughter had the Salmon Teriyaki Salad and she thought hers was good also. Good prices and lovely view across to the beach.
