Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 July 2017 via mobile

Food: Pork Ramen - Poor- soup unnaturally way too sweet, lack the aroma of pork ramen. majority of pork was fat,
also a shame that the place uses Chinese style bowels when the rest of the restaurant is so well decorated

Environment: good
Staff: good
Price: too expensive considering quality of food provided

The restaurant was quiet, which is generally not a good sign. I ordered the seafood okonomiyaki. It was ok, but seemed a bit dry compared to what I've had elsewhere. The service was fine, but was not exactly put to the test with only two patrons.

I'm glad I didn't check the reviews before coming here. My partner and I loved it! We ordered sushi, karaage chicken special, edamame, okonomiyaki and gyoza. Whoops! We over ordered! The portions were amaze! But soooo delicious! Also ordered some cocktails etc. Was perfect. So glad we found this hidden gem! Will be back!

The place looks great and Staff were very friendly. Menu looked great with a good selection of food varieties.

I ordered the large sashimi platter. Look the fish was mostly fresh but on close inspection was not well cut and attention to detail was lacking (some not cut all the way through meaning you picked up a string of fish etc). The art of sashimi is decorative in nature but the precision involved in an important aspect.

They did however have a fantastic selection of single malt scotch so for this reason I would recommend for the Japanese scotch connoisseurs!

Food was good! However service was not the best, having to wait a long time to even get a drink let alone food order taken.
