We love Japanese food, so couldn't believe our luck when we discovered this place in Hobart right on the water. It should be good, but it's not. Possibly the worst softshell crab rolls I've ever had. There was hardly any crab in them! The bento box was a tired mishmash of bits and pieces.

I went with 3 friends and it cost us $90 for 2 serves of dumplings, tampura veggies, and 1 serve of sushi, plus one round of beers. About $16 for 6 pieces of dumplings. While nice, they were nothing special and defiantely not worth $3 each!! Walked away still hungry....
Dont waste your time (or money).

Have been eating here on and off for quite a few years. Used to enjoy it in years gone by but am finding the service & food has become quite ho hum in recent years even though we keep hoping the chef might either change or get a new lease on his (cooking) life. The staff used to be quite jolly and helpful, if occasionally a bit english-challenged....,now they just seem to be going through the motions with very little expression and desultory service. The last two times we have visited (probably 8 months apart), the two rieslings on the wine list were unavailable, showing a lack of wine list planning. When we arrived at 1.30pm for lunch, after booking in advance, we were told last orders would be taken in 20 mins! In fact, a number of walk-ins arrived after us and they were still taking orders at about 2.20pm....haphazard liaison between kitchen & service staff. I sort of get the impression the prevailing attitude is that, as the numbers may still be ticking over, average is good enough. Shame as it has great potential to be very good again if the will is there.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here and devoured every mouthful. Unfortunately we ended up spending over $120 on sushi alone in order to fill ourselves up. If you can afford it however, i would definitely recommend it. The toilets are shared with the Mures lower deck restaurant which is problematic considering how busy it is so as a woman be prepared to wait in line.

We had lunch at this little restaurant that is located on the lower ck of Mures and it was delightful! We had a range of dishes of teriyaki chicken and sashimi and sushi with rice and it was all absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend trying!
