Thank you Yelp! This somewhat out of the way, small Japanese restaurant is on a pedestrian walkway in the Rocks. It has an outdoor covered patio and a smaller indoor seating area. Service was simply excellent - friendly and efficient. Prices were also very reasonable,...More

Honestly some of the best Japanese I've had in Sydney in a long time. Highly reccomend! The terriaki chicken has the most amazing crispy skin on it and delicious sauce. Will definitely come again.
