A great meal amidst a lively, noisy crowd. Japanese-influenced small and large plates. Very good quality, good service, priced fairly for the quality of the cuisine and the upscale but not at all fussy atmosphere.

Late Friday night dinner with work colleagues. Food was delicious and easily designed to share, meaning you can try many different things

The food here was really great with lots of options and suggestions by the helpful staff. Would recommend the pork belly and the duck! However it's a little expensive so I would really only go again for a special occasion.

The service was totally appalling. The communication from the 3 front of house staff was non-existent. We got told to wait for an hour for a table (they emphasised the maximum an hour) and ended up waiting an hour and a half only to get seated on a group table which had been available all along. We wanted to get... More

Very overpriced; tap beer $11 not even a pint, Teriyaki chicken $34 without rice- said a it comes with broccoli but arrives with two tiny florets. Very tasty food but the Britomart area has much more reasonably priced food for quality and quantity. Good service but again in this area of town there is generally a high standard without the...

Was super expensive for a very small portions. 4 dumplings $19, drinks about $11/12 each and mains close to $40 for about 1/3 of what I'd normally eat (and I'm not a big eater). In saying that was very tasty and enjoyed what I did have but just didn't feel that warranted the price we paid. Plenty of other nice... More

Went here on Saturday night with friends. We found the wait staff went out of their way for us and were all very polite and attentive. The food was just beautiful and the wine list excellent. Considering we had 2 men who just love meat, they both said the miso eggplant was the favourite. The only down side we found... More
