Had a lovely meal here last Saturday. The Sake was reasonably priced and delicious. Then the sushi and the seaweed was stunning. Good service from a knowledgeable waitress really helped us make our choices. Would definitely recommend a visit. We will be back.

Had a delicious meal here with friends - excellent sushi and other dishes all beautifully presented. Each table is hidden by red velvet curtains so this brings a very intimate feeling. Ate the special home made ice cream desserts and they were like nothing I...More

Great Japanese restaurant by the pier with good views. The sashimi was very fresh and tasty. We also tried an interesting eggplant dish and wagyu steak. Our waitress made the experience really nice with her warm and attentive service.

Usually manage to get here a couple of times a year and it never, ever disappoints. Salmon sashimi was great but for me the pick is always the Wasabi Prawns.......crisp and creamy with a little bite.

Lovely food and busy service staff. Avg price per sushi roll $20+. Large sashimi at $70 which most restaurants are $50 max. Great sunset over st Kilda Beach but bring your wallet if you want to have a full feed.
