Cannot praise this restaurant enough. All our party members were unanimous.
We were greeted at the door by the manager who chatted while the table was prepared for us. The restaurant is attractive and welcoming - all the staff smile and greet you. The tables are arranged for privacy, we only overlooked one table from our booth.
The menu is extensive making choices difficult and relies on patient waitresses!
We had plum wine, lychee wine and a Sapporo. The wines were delicious.
We had a fairly full selection from different sections of the menu; Miso soup, sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, tempura, rice, and more - all were equally outstanding. As expected from Japanese restaurants the presentation was superb.
Service was delightful, prompt, efficient yet unhurried. We felt we were well attended and looked after.
The bill for three at $85 was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here based on reviews from tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It's quite a large place with great ambience. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was good too. Will definitely return.

A large restaurant with a touch of chic, which manages to create private spaces with partitions, "traditional" wood paneling, lots of booths, tables and bar seating. Varied "isakaya" menu with bento boxes and many usual a la carte items. We found the food good, but similar to every other good Japanese restaurant. Ample portions but not anything special. Would go again though to try something else. Waited a while for service, but once the order was taken, the food came out quickly. Friendly staff and parking building right across the street - show them your parking ticket and they'll give you $3 back off the $7 night parking fee.

Busy staff were creating on-demand sushi so they (the sushi!) were mega-fresh, and offered great range of taste-sensations.

The food was brilliant, as good as we've had. Had a few small courses and finished with sashimi, presentation was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful and on top of that we dined on a Friday night and got served up a Japanese drum show, just loved it. This restaurant was so good we went back for a second fix on the Saturday
