“good food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

I'm not a great fan of Sushi, so was a little wary when invited to this restaurant. I need not have worried as the menu is extensive with a wide choice of hot and cold dishes.My hosts had a Sushi platter for two which was large and, they advised, very appetizing. I tried a 'sizzling' fish dish, and prawn and vegetable tempura. Both dishes were well cooked and tasty. Service was perfectly perfectly acceptable. The portions of the four dishes chosen were generous, and a filling meal for three, plus a couple of beers and a soft drink cost $116
All in all, worth a visit.

“A real Japanese treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

I love Japanese food and this is a top notch treat. Worth a stop while in Williamstown. Try the Tempura.

“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Went here at the other week 5pm with the family (2 adults 2 small kids) . Np one else there but had to wait 15 minutes to be served. We ordered soup to start but had to wait 30 minutes whilst the staff ate their soup at their table! The sushi was bland and absolutely tasteless. The food arrived in dribs and drabs and the total bill was over £100.
Felt ripped off and miserable - really bad experience.

“Nice restaurant with reasonably good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Prices are average, food reasonably good, service fairly quick. Big enough serves. We had soup and shared 5 entrees, fried rice. More than enough and even some left over. Tempura was a little disapointing this time as the batter was not fully cooked but overall very happy with the overall experience.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Nice little Japenese resturant with average food. As with most things in Williamstown theyy are overpriced. Have eaten at nicer places close by with are much cheaper.
