This is one of those restaurants when you pay alot for a little.

Its brilliant however for the amount we paid we should have walked away full not still hungry! I did like it and i did enjoy it however it felt like the restaurant was made for sugar daddys trying to impress their next conquest and rich asain business men who hate aussie food.

The service was great and the food was AMAZING however I wanted to eat dinner not a snack!

The atmosphere was great too. this is more appropriate for extremely special occashionas and if your trying to impress a client

Ate here for the first time at a Champagne Ruinart event. What an amazing presentation and combination of flavours - a real eye opener! Will definitely go back again to more fully explore the menu.

Had a great meal here, couldn't get an inside table so sat at the bar overlooking the street. Glad we did, it was really good watching the activity on the street. The food was fast and fresh. The guy who served us was very good and made some good recommendations. Will come back again.

Love, love, love the food. Fresh, delicious and you walk out feeling "healthy". I've tried most of the menu, the only thing I wouldn't order again is the Giant Sushi Roll, only because if I wanted Sushi I'd go to one of the numerous Sushi Trains etc. Love the Sashimi Selection, Wagyu & the Pork Belly. The set menus are definitely worth it too. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Love this place.

The large menu is more like a degustation than a traditional menu, where you get to try a multitude of incredible creations to tantalize your taste buds. Amazing sashimi, the like found nowhere else in Brisbane. Favourite dish was the New Style Wagyu... a fusion dish we had not had before, and ordered on a whim!

We were lucky to get 2 seats at the kitchen counter. The working chefs were a pleasure to watch while waiting for our food: a smooth and orderly operation, such found anywhere in Japan itself.

We loved the atmosphere and the staff were knowledgable and prompt.
