This small suburban Japanese restaurant punches above its weight in terms of variety, service and price. It has a great ambience and combines a sushi bar with café style restaurant very nicely without being too overcrowded. Being on the large side of chunky, I hate...More

I have eaten at many Japanese restaurants and this place is special. The sashimi was exceptional, the gyoza as good as it gets, and the sushi just so, so tasty! I highly recommend this restaurant if you like Japanese food.

I've driven past this restaurant many many times and was so glad that I decide to dine there. Ayame has a lovely warm atmosphere, very courteous staff and delicious food. What more could you ask for.

These dishes are delicate... definitely the 'wow'' factor consistently. I love to take friends here that haven't eaten much Japanese food as I know they will be impressed! They let me order... byo wine and the meal becomes amazingly good value.

It is a very busy restaurant even early in the evening. It seems that Uber Eats does many deliveries from there. The food was delicious and the hand rolls were overflowing with Fresh Raw Salmon and a delicious sauce

Our entree sushi/ sashimi platter was the highlight of the meal - fresh and delicious. Service needs a bit of work - they took ages to bring wine glasses and got our mains order very wrong. And after our plates from mains were removed, there...More
