“A great taste experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A modern take on a great cooking style in picturesque surroundings. This is not a traditional Japanese meal, so do not be surprised with some of the interpretations of dishes, but the results are still very tasty. If you are looking for a solid traditional meal, then you should skip this one. The attention to details and service is wonderful, with split level seating downstairs taking in the views of the landscaped city park outside. Very nice indeed.

“Ok,but better, cheaper places around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

$900 for 6 of us..... The prison style seating, the waitress who couldn't speak up above the noise, the noise, the price, the......

If the company is paying maybe this place is ok, but out of my pocket... Matsuri here I come

“Better Class Japanese Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We dined here early before going to the theatre. We ordered a selection of dishes including Prawn tempura, Salmon Nigiri, Tuna Sashimi & Vegetable Kushiyaki. All were excellent however the Sashimi was the standout.

The restaurant has a great look and an interesting location.

We ordered two glasses of wine which were too expensive for what they were.

The service was OK but we had communication problems with our waitress due to her poor English.

“Good food small serve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Being turned away by Jaimie's 2.5 hour waiting list, we opted to shiro which offered us a bench table as we didn't book for table. We were happily seated.

We can't afford the pricy food so we shared 3 entres and 2 mains, yet not filling. The Hakkaisan sake was served warm and great but have to ask for reheating afterwards for later.

The smoked salmon salad was beautiful, as well as the teppanyaki salmon scallops. But for guys like us we need more calories then what they could offer. So we left with half-filled stomach and looked for desserts somewhere else.

“Glass box of tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Our first visit to a Japanese restaurant. This is an upmarket spot in a modern block in the city with great views of the skyline at night. The food was amazing. Lovely for a special treat.
