I have been eating at this Restaurant for over 20 years. The service is always friendly and efficient. The food is always fresh and very well presented. All other Japanese restaurants I visit are benchmarked by me against Roppongi. More like a café than restaurant. Very informal but comfortable. Their Miso soup is the best I have had, and I... More

We finally made it to Roppongi, and we weren't disappointed. Friendly efficient service, tasty food and value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our experience. We will go back!

This little gem is hidden away (conveniently 2 mins walk from my house). There is a good range of food and we have always had good service. The prices give good value for money and I've never left feeling disappointed.

The place is sort of hidden. The decor inside was nice. There were a lot of people for Tuesday night. Food was quite good and filling. Enjoyed the Teriyaki chicken set. The service was very good too. I think for the price I paid, it was well worth it. Will return.

Since moving to Wollongong 20 years ago, sometimes I have dinner at this restaurant as there is no other better Japanese restaurant. I agree with Stephanie that sushi and sashimi are not fresh. Last time, tuna was so old that I gave up. I guess the owner is so greedy that he does not have the gut to throw away... More

Reasonably price western style Japanese. Grumpy staff and 50 cents to use the chilli powder! I think they charge for salt and pepper as well. They added the extras on to the bill without telling us they charged us Cheeky and probably won't go back.

Roppongi represents value for money. The decor is a little shabby but obviously Japanese in flavour and you can sit at a table or on cushions on the floor at a low table. The staff are very friendly and efficient. I like the udon noodle soup with tempura prawn and vegetables - it is very filling and hits the spot... More
