Really funky and interesting food. Must order the mixed mushrooms, the Kurobata pork, the tongue we ordered was glorious, stuffed zucchini flowers. I have been there over 10 times and have had a similar result every time. In addition the food is very wine friendly.
Highly recommended, take Champagne (the real thing), it is a good match for the food.

Most plates arrived at once...
Tongue was as hard as a shoe sole!
Sashimi very good and tempura good.
Deco okay.
Lots of potential because chefs seem to know their stuff.

We went to dinner during the week and were surprised how large the menu was. They have a tepanyaki grill and a sushi bar, a large wine list with lot's of french wine listed. We over ordered (and had asked the waitress if we were ordering too much + were assured that most of our dishes were entree size). On the plus side lot's of variety and most things were tasty. We tried there Okonomiyaki (Japanese Pancake) as that's not that common in Australia, having had it at other places I found it disappointing and covered with cheap sauce (ie BBQ flavour sauce and mayo). The services was slow and we had to ask for things, especially drinks (by waving staff down). Not a bad place but not as good as their other restaurant across the lights (Jurin). I think they try a bit hard and have too much on the menu but perhaps we just didn't order any of their winners. OK but not amazing.
