We were a bit late arriving but the staff were very helpful and efficient. The Asian fusion cuisine had great flavours, the pork belly was excellent and the sashimi was really fresh. We finished the meal with a chocolate souffle which was just right, an excellent chocolate flavour but not too cloyingly sweet. It went very well with the tapioca coconut cream with which it was served. The service was fast but although there were two sittings and we had arrived late, the staff did not make us feel rushed. We would be happy to go back next time we are in Adelaide.

Food is absolutely outstanding. Creative, delicious, fresh... I can not rave enough. The sushi rolls and tempura are fantastic, but all the main courses are spectacular. The service is good but not wonderful - the staff are knowledgable about the menu but forget things slightly too often eg drinks and the bill. One of the best restaurants in Adelaide.

Always very interesting blend of japanese and other styles of cooking to be found alongside extremely good japanese standards. The Chocolate Soufflé is to die for, yeah I know as a Japanese restaurant. You will need to book and probably a long time in advance because it books out but it is worth it. Try the non-standard Japanese options as this is where Kenji really shines with interesting tastes and flavours not available at most japanese style restaurants.

The fusion style menu is great - creative blend of Japanese and western flavours, exquisitely presented. The high quality menu carries all the way through to the desserts! We have been several times now and it's all consistently great. Try the Umeshu (plum wine)

We dined here recently with a group of friends......everything is exceptional......the food....the service and the atmosphere.
This is definitely one of the very top restaurants in Adelaide - not to be missed.
