We had two meals here - one lunch and one dinner. Lunch was a true Japanese lunch set with some great dumplings. Dinner was a varied set of dishes, Sushi mi, more dumplings, bento boxes and more. They also have warm Sake, and a good variety of beers wand wines, and of course more Sake.

They were nice enough to accommodate our group of 14 and moved 2 other reserved bookings from the japanese style sitting area, however service was really slow - slow to order as well as to bring out the food, most of our group had already finished eating by the time the last meal (coincidentally mine) was served. We also had... More

Had a great meal here. Nice authentic Japanese! The restaurant is in a mall but it's quaint and quirky and serves up good food. Would eat here again!

After a tip from the Japanese receptionist of our hotel we went on an endeavor to find this fine restaurant. It was well hidden in a small arcade, luckily some local Chinese people were able to help us as it is located on a floor above a very well known Chinese restaurant. As we came in early we were fortunate... More

Family dinner of 10 people with 4 under 6, we sat authentic Japanese style & the kids loved it. Amazing authentic Japanese cuisine with a great atmosphere and very reasonable prices. For 6 adults, 4 kids and a bottle of wine, bill was only $230. Would definitely come back & recommend to anyone who enjoys real authentic Japanese cuisine. The... More

This is a small family run Japanese restaurant with authentic food that reminded us of dining in Japan. The quality of the sushi and sashimi was superb - some of the best I have ever had. I ordered a second plate! The cooked dishes are good value. The sushi and sashimi prices fairly steep - but you get what you... More
