Service is non existent here. Had to try hard to make eye contact to get service. No drinks offered. Food and sauces lacked flavour. Try hikaru instead a bit further down king st. Staff here have no service ethic or idea.

Had walked past this place many times and thought I would try the food. Very average service, place looks dirty, and table very sticky.

Good selection with large menu, all my sushi was very good with quick polite service. Open front so can sit by the street or not, prices reasonable.

I've been going to Asakusa for the last 6 years, and even though I no longer live near New Town, still sometimes make the trek. The prices are decent, the food is excellent. The vibe is chilled - don't get angry when the wait staff aren't attentive, just wave at them till they see you. Recommend the sashimi, gyoza and... More

I love going to Asakusa. Delicious food and good value. I recommend the tofu set in noodle soup. Yum

I have been to this restaurant many times. this week I took two friends who had not been before. They loved it. We had a scallop dish, a beef dish, and tempura. Plus a small salad. A generous amount of food for two women and one man. All scrumptious. My favourite was the scallops. From many previous visits I can... More

You shouldn't have to walk to the delivery drivers car in the rain if you're paying a $4.50 delivery fee. The food was bland and over priced. The tempura was boxed with the noodles and delivered soggy. This place is a nightmare.. Never again. Do yourself a favor and choose a different Japanese resto.

We have been coming for about 14 years now and still our favourite Japanese restaurant. Have always found the food to be fresh and a great variety. We tend to get the dinner boxes regularly and have never been disappointed. Also really great value for money!

We go to this place quite often, as it's cheap and yummy. You can usually get in without a booking if you're a small group, but be prepared to wait if you have a few people with you. Service can be a bit slow but always polite and friendly. The dinner boxes are good value here and there's plenty of... More

We were a group of eight people and while the service was polite and prompt the quality of the food served was pretty average. My wife and I shared a sushi and sashimi mixed plate and a rainbow roll. The flavors of the roll were pleasant but the rice was not cooked properly or rolled tightly enough and the roll... More
