I took some clients to the $10 lunch, and it was an amazing experience. Everything was cooked beautifully, the staff were professional and attentive, but we were still able to chat. What you need to remember is that it can get a bit noisy with the extractors going over the grills, and if you are 4 or less people, you will probably be seated with other people at the table (they seat 8 around each grill).

This Japanese restaurant do an awesome $10 lunch. Amazing value for money. They cook the food on hot plates in front of you & you can order fish, chicken or steak which is chopped & cooked with a mixture of fresh seasonal vegetables. This is served with miso soup & rice so heaps for lunch. There evening dinning is a la carte.

Best prawns ever with their special garlic mayo and best with the fried rice instead of plain rice. My partner had the eye filet steak which was very tender.

My family and I are very frequent customers and usually we are impressed by the service of the front of house and the quality of the food. We have been served a few times by Bronte and Erin who are a really good team, are always incredibly friendly, make us feel welcome and relaxed and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. However on our past 2 visits we were served by another female who we found to be unapproachable and when answering questions could be quite rude and new waiter who has obviously received no training at all and didn’t know how to take our orders. As I said we are frequent customers and still plan to return for the food but service skills is something to bear in mind when hiring new staff.

We went with our two children - ages 10 and 11. We eat quite a lot of Japanese, and this one did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in we were looked after. The chefs were amazing with their knife display and catching the rice etc. usually with places like this the food lets them down - but to in this case. The food quality and cooking as perfect.
