We decided to order the bento box - where you can select your own meats and then cook yourself at the table - yum! Unfortunately our order was forgotten and we waited over 45 min for lunch - which is... More

Bought the family here on recommendation from a friend. Quick friendly service, very attentive staff. Had the bbq buffet, lots of choices. Although we enjoyed the food, it would've been even better if we knew which sauces to pair our meat with. I am happy I tried JFX but I think for me I would prefer not to cook my... More

The bento box has much delightfulness! Definitely worth going in and trying for yourself. The restaraunt can be a little busy at lunch sometimes though.

We had our favourite meal - mori mori box with Chicken Karage, to our dismay, the rice was horrible and tastless. The salad was appalling, lettuce were not at all freash as it used... More

As said in title, good food, good service and well priced. Casual dining among friends for quick and easy meals. Only down fall, not much variety or options to choose from !!

Crowded on a Monday night which surprised as had found South port reasonably quiet. Lovely waitress found us seats at counter in front of kitchen. Fun,happy service. Enjoyed Bento box with spicy pork karrage washed down with organic ginger beer. Tables had Yakitori grills which would have been great.. Booking would be advisable. Can see why they are busy. Well...

Their kimchee with pork hotpot dish never disappoints! Delicious, large portion, and only $10. You never have to wait long and the staff is very friendly. It's quite a small restaurant and it does get busy so if you want to sit inside make sure you call ahead to book. It's situated between the Southport Central buildings and as a... More
