There were three of us with two entrees and three mains which worked out to be quite reasonable pricing. Most of the mains are priced... read more

Been dining here for over 20 years and still our favourite Japanese restaurant. Consistently good and reasonably priced. Love it!

In regards to the taste of the food, i have never been disappointed. It is always delicious with everything we have ordered. The service, however, is a little on the bad side. I dont doubt that the busy-ness of the place can be stressful but efficiency is a must in a place that is always going to be busy, instead... More

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
