It was a long day and we were chasing simple food. We made the right choice we shared sushi which was crisp and extremely well prepared. The main courses were also a delight to share. A minor concern was the speed of the service; it was a busy night so things were a little slow.

Just finished a banquet for 2 with my daughter who has recently moved to Williamstown and took me to try the local Japanese. Must say I was very impressed with the value of the 9 course presentation.
The courses were miso soup,fried tofu, mixed tempura, gyoza, sushi & sashimi, a very nice steak and noodle dish, tonkatsu, teriyaki chicken and green tea.
The serves were quite generous and terrific value at $35 p.p.
Serving staff are smiling, attentive, friendly and helpful.
The decor needs a bit of a lift but well worth a try if you are in the area.

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.

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

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.
