“Pretty good food supplied in daggy surroundings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Ate here one dark and stormy night. Interior is rather daggy and unassuming. My chair as broken. Food is prepared freshly and quickly. Enjoyable to eat. With better attention to the surrounds it'd be much more fun to eat there. Staff had trouble explaining dishes in English.

“Excellent sushi and other Japanese / Korean food in very modest surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We live in Coogee for seven months of the year and often go to this tiny Japanese / Korean restaurant.
The variety of food is good, and the quality excellent. The sushi is hand-made to order in full view and the chef is creative. They have recently introduced a number of innovative dishes.
Personally I prefer the Japanese items to the Korean ones, but a number of friends think that the spicy Korean dishes are superb.
The welcome is always very friendly and the service prompt.
It is BYO but the nearest bottle shop is a bit of a trek away on Coogee Bay Road.

“Great Food”

Fantastic food and service for either eat in or takeaway. The agedashi tofu was my fav with a great choice of sushi and sashimi.
