Talk about authentic and great quality.

It’s huge and I have never seen it maybe 1/4 full but check the opening hours as they are a little strange...

Really a great place for everyone their food is really good and their selection of Japanese Ciders is impressive!

First seating (2 hours from 5.30pm) was for our table of 4A + 3K. Next seating was 7.30pm. The couple we went with had recently dined there and knew the best way to deal with the quirky procedures. We entered at 5.30 and were politely seated at our table for 9, even though the reservation was for 7?!? Anyway, the waitress with the iPad lined up for the first order, and our friends led the way with an order for about 15 dishes! Knowing the portion sizes helped and we were very soon eating DELICIOUS, freshly prepared and cooked dishes. It's like Japanese tapas - let's call it JAPAS!! the kids really enjoyed the Chicken Karaage, Fried Rice, Gyoza, Chicken Yakitori etc. We kept ordering at each opportunity and were pleased with the continuing supply of lovely food. Our friends insisted that some of the dishes you order won't turn up and some you didn't order will land on your table. To be honest, this doesn't really matter, as all the dishes we had were pleasant and the staff were equally so. Last orders were called at 7pm and we elected to have some of the desserts. They were simple, yet tasty, especially the black sesame ice cream. Corkage was reasonable at $2 per adult, regardless of the amount of bottles. Soft drinks were also reasonable at $3.

All in all, accepting the quirkiness of not receiving some of the dishes you order, yet receiving equally tasty replacements, the night was a great success. We really enjoyed it, and I can only suggest that you order as quickly as possible, and keep on going!!! It's a fun and inexpensive night out for the variety and quantity of quality food you can consume. Adults $42.95, Kids 10-12yo $21.95 and Kids 4-9yo $12.95.

WE'LL BE BACK - WISHIN' FOR MORE ISSHIN !

Went for a work dinner, food was delicious. Servings were brought quickly, the staff were a little lacking in knowledge of sauces ingredients etc but worked out ok. This is an all you can eat but the food is cooked fresh not from a bay Marie. Can’t wait to go back. Huge selection to chose from to,cater for all tastes. The restaurant is very busy and loud when full quite a few tables but did not feel squashed in. Easy car parking
