“Above average if sashimi is fresh”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Since moving to Wollongong 20 years ago, sometimes I have dinner at this restaurant as there is no other better Japanese restaurant.
I agree with Stephanie that sushi and sashimi are not fresh. Last time, tuna was so old that I gave up. I guess the owner is so greedy that he does not have the gut to throw away the old stuff.
The waitress are sometimes friendly, sometimes grumpy.
So if you enter into this restaurant, it would be better not to order sushi nor sashimi, particularly during summer.
The other meals are OK and cheap compared to other Japanese restaurant in the region.

“Very average ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Reasonably price western style Japanese. Grumpy staff and 50 cents to use the chilli powder! I think they charge for salt and pepper as well.

They added the extras on to the bill without telling us they charged us Cheeky and probably won't go back.

“Cheap and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Roppongi represents value for money. The decor is a little shabby but obviously Japanese in flavour and you can sit at a table or on cushions on the floor at a low table. The staff are very friendly and efficient. I like the udon noodle soup with tempura prawn and vegetables - it is very filling and hits the spot on cold nights. Some dishes are hot and miss at times but overall it is good value.

“Seriously what are people thinking??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

I came here cause of all the reviews. My husband and I are sushi lovers and this doesn't even come close. I'm sorry but it's a let down abd the tampura prawns were soggy. If anyone is ever in Ghana then u must visit Monsoon..
