Went for our wedding anniversary. Food was really good. Small portions though. We had 5 dishes between the two of us. Which filled us up. A little pricey (food $140) but wine quite expensive too. It was also quite noisy with the wooden floor.More

atmosphere is good, food is overrated expensive and not very creative for a fine dining themed Japanese restaurant. Food quality is good, but with the amount of money we are paying, you expect something creative and refreshing with the menu.More

Staff were “rough around the edges” from a communication and presentation perspective. Not sure if they had a manager on duty....More
