Had a great meal that included looks of small traditional Japanese dishes (all cooked). Not normally a big fan of miso but the pumpkin miso custard was great. Wait staff were very attentive and the chef made the night entertaining. I left full.

Hi Tracey, definitely worth it, we simply went for the set menu, which I think was $60 per head depending on what options you go with, but it still provided plenty of variety. Enjoy! Cheers Michael
