About as good as it gets. A little part of Japan in sleepy old Balnarring. Top class food, great ambience and really nice people. Go on, spoil yourself - if you like Japanese food you will not be disappointed. But it's only small so make...sure you book.More

We loved our meal at this restaurant. The set price menu was a journey through the classic Japanese dishes, from a delicious potato salad on a cracker, to fresh and beautiful sashimi and sushi, crispy pork gyozas, tender and delicious beef teriyaki to the beautifully...simple dessert of yuzu yoghurt and fruit made from the Master’s (owner and chef) own garden. Great service and hospitality makes for a special experience. We’ll worth the visit to Balnarring.More

Quality ingredients, elegantly crafted and thoroughly enjoyed. I am glad we chose to try this restaurant. Having recently moved to the area I read good things and understood that we would be in very experienced hands. I enjoyed our set menu and look forward to...dining a part carte again when staffing allows. Recommended.More

Sensibly, due to staff absence due to training, the normal a la carte options were suspended and a $75 fixed price menu offered. It was all absolutely delicious, course after course of tasty traditional fare, some cold (sashimi, sushi, chicken salad), ending with a rich...perfectly cooked tenderloin in teriyaki sauce. Just delicious.More

It is open most days for lunch and dinner but a check of their web site will tell you exactly when. I suspect BYO is available all the time but suggest you check
