“Crazy cool place, great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

A very cool place, great decor, good music and very attentive staff. The acoustics arent quite right so it was sometimes difficult to hear each other. A friend and I had a tepanyaki. Well executed and they were willing to change a couple of items. It is pricey but you are paying for the whole package which is great.

“Exciting Cocktails and a Buzzing Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Located within the Westgate Mall one might claim that the surroundings of the bar aren't the most exciting, but on the other hand parking is easily available at a reasonably price. There are loads of cocktails which will tempt you, usually great music and floor space to dance. Unfortunately this large bar/restaurant has no terrace and the at times slow service means that it cannot receive a full mark.
Tip: Wear something fashionable since most guest are either coming in smart work attire or dressed to go out.

“This should hit the spot...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

A pretty good and nicely decorated restaurant. Even saw a Japanese guy behind the sushi bar! We had satay bites (beef, chicken, veg, mushrooms & chips), some prawn and red snapper sashimi, a rand roll, and this spicy tuna covered in salmon roll (or something like that!) They also have very good cocktails and on Tuesday nights they are buy one get one free. All in all, a good restaurant, nice atmosphere, and good food & drink.

“Great atmosphere, quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

The location (up on the top retail floor of the Westgate Mall) leaves it with fewer customers than you might expect, but this Oriental-themed restaurant ticks all the boxes: good selection of food, great selection of drinks, excellent service and pleasant, cool decor.
Highly recommended.
