Umami galore! You can’t go wrong with the sashimi platter if you can’t quite decide - complete with liquid nitrogen theatrics. The beef BBQ and pork belly skewers with wasabi mousse give your taste buds a richer contrasting flavour to the delicate fresh sea food....More

The freshest of ingredients, simply prepared and presented. However, the over exuberance of the drink and food waiters, put us into a bit of a spin. The music was head banging and load. Most of the patrons would have left wiith a bit extra “tinnitus”,...More

The Star is fortunate to have a number of quality restaurants. Sokyo, unfortunately, is not one of them. Egregiously expensive, an incredibly basic atmosphere and haphazard service was not expected nor appreciated at what is meant to be one of the most well-regarded Japanese restaurants....More
