“Very good food and experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Very nice restaurant with great food and service. Reasonavle prices - much lower than equivalent in UK and compares with many of thw Thai places in Kirribilli.

Had Sashimi to start and then mains - reasonable portions but not excessive - and a bottle of wine. Seems busy - they were turning people away on a week night so it may be best to book

Nice Japanese restaurant, with the option of seating at traditional Japanese tables sunk into the floor or at normal tables. Food is well prepared, and they offer a small but tasty selection of desserts. Make sure you book though, as the restaurant is quite small.
