“Service with wonderful smiles and exceptional food quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Dined at this busy restaurant in Kings Street on the recommendation of our hosts. The food was so fresh and of a high quality. The service was attentive and warm. The seafood dishes were beautifully presented and although we received the incorrect order on one, it was changed immediately. It must be a local haunt with the chef coming out to greet regulars - Modern decor a little cold and minimilistic but maybe that was intentional - felt it needed a little more warmth , but I am being overly picky on such a good location and meal

“Deliciously fresh Japanese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is undoubtedly the best authentic Japanese food available in Sydney. Modest in terms of decor and ambience, this restaurant makes up for it with its unbelievably fresh sashimi and is judged by my Japanese husband to be the best Japanese restaurant in Sydney. The grilled scallops are superb, the agadashi tofu is done to perfection and the seaweed salad is exquisite. The sashimi is always amazingly fresh and never fails to disappoint! The list could go on and on. Lovers of fresh seafood will definitely enjoy this restaurant. We love this place and eat here very frequently. The selection of sake and japanese beers is also extensive and desserts are very inexpensive and delicious, particularly the fondant au chocolat for only $7. The price is reasonable considering the high quality of the food which is just as good as some of the high end Japanese restaurants in Sydney.

“Poor Customer Service, Over-priced Suedo Japanese”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Having lived in Japan for a little while, I can assure you many of the meals on this Japanese restaurant's list are in fact Japanese.
The vibe is an arrogant Japanese restaurant...with too many staff, doing I have no idea what!
Parking is a nightmare.
The food is well above that of what I would expect of any Japanese restaurant.
The staff are inflexible, rude and have poor communication skills.
They made several errors and failed to apologise for their mistake.
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this place.
