Went for dinner there first time with business associate. We were both pretty hungry so ordered a sushi each, Miso soup, teppenyaki prawns (we both agreed were as good as we'd ever had), and 50/50 scallops and steak. All the food was first rate and presented beautifully. When the 50/50 arrived at the table we immediately recognised we'd need more so ordered a second one which was no problem and came promptly. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. The decor is not luxurious and there are kiddies, so it isn't exactly elegant but the tucker is close to faultless. I just booked to go there again and this time take our wives. Slightly pricey but the high quality food is worth paying for and I'd recommend over the numerous sushi bars dotted around Surfers and Southport which are cheapish, predictable and really are all pretty much the same.

Great Japanese - a small menu selection but an authentic flavor.
We enjoyed the gyoza, terriaki chicken and California rolls. We ate take away, however, the restaurant looks lovely and we would eat in next time.

The food was ok, but most disappointing was choosing the $46 set menu dinner which includes a small meal, a large meal, salad, miso and dessert. For the small i Chose a small mixed sashimi, other people at our table chose small mixed sashimi as well(but as an individual meal) and when the dishes came out my sashimi was half the size! Surely there should not be a difference? Otherwise what is the point of choosing the set menu? Husband got tempura prawns... Lovely, but there were only two... Not sure that if you ordered a small tempura prawns for $16 if you would get more, as no one else ordered it. Beef teriyaki and salmon teriyaki for the mains were nice, but nothing extraordinary. Miso so-so.....

We walked past a tiny entrance blocked by a curtain. After watching several people walk through, it got the better of us. So we took a peep, realizing it was a cosy little Japanese restaurant. We decided to come back the next night and try it out. Omg. So glad we did!! The service was amazing, food mouth watering and the experience was unbelievable. You can even do the full experience here and have a table sitting on cushions on the floor. We had a hot pot, I have never had anything like it. Your own little gas plate & cook your own or have them cook it for you right in front. The taste was so good I even drank the juice left in the pot after cooking our meal. And the price was very reasonable. If you like Japanese and cosy places where you get a personal experience. Don't go past this place. You will never look back.
