Teriyaki chicken, Pork Kastu and Angus Beef for main. Top quality food and the prices are very... More

I had the teriyaki chicken, unagi, tempura set. Had Karannge chicken and salt pepper squid appetiser. Appetisers were great. Mains were average. Tempura felt a bit old, like... More

This is our go to for Japanese because we live a block away. The food and service are consistent no matter what day. The gyozu is delicious and the edamame are lovely and salty.

I went with a large group of friends and it was the worst meal I have ever had. The food was brought out within 5 minutes of us ordering and my dish (curry katsu don) certainly tasted and looked like it has just been warmed up and not fresh. My friend ordered the curry udon which was more like a... More
