Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have always walked past and wanted to make a booking at this fancy looking Japanese restaurant in Parnell. Finally took the opportunity this evening. First celebratory meal post lockdown number 2. Liked: 1. Nice intimate fine dining ambience inside compared to the usual Japanese isakaya joints. 2. Good portions, all well prepared and lovely quality. However everything came all at once. We would have preferred a slightly staggered service so there was more time to savor each dish without it all getting cold too quickly. 3. Best dish was the beef tataki. Excellent flavour and great if you like beef tartar as the beef is sliced and served sashimi style. Very very good one to try! 4. Had a sake and a Sapporo to complete the meal with a matcha ice cream and a fried banana with vanilla ice cream. I would pass on the banana dessert as the banana was not ripe and the tempura coating was less than the crispy I would normally expect. Otherwise a lovely place for a nice intimate quality Japanese meal in upmarket Parnell. Will definitely head back again dad their menu is fairly extensive.

went out for dinner as a family of 3, got in just before they closed yet were very welcoming, tried 5 different dishes including fish, chicken beef , all perfectly cooked & presented. Excellent & delightful service, clean & lovely settings Definitely going back with family & friends. In Gion you pay the premium but definitely getting quality so worth it

Thus is a special place, from the moment you walk in it’s like entering a different world! The staff are delightful, charming and very attentive, the atmosphere is perfect and the food... good gods the food is flawless! No wonder they have a certificate of excellence :) I brought my fiancée here for her birthday and I’ll be patting myself on the back for years! Deeply satisfied and very grateful, if I believed in magic this would be it, setting the standard!

We discovered this for lunch on a windy wet day. Nice atmosphere an authentic and original Japanese restaurants you must visit, centrally located in Parnell. In addition it was Japanese owned and had Japanese chefs not Korean as it should be. The restaurant was busy this Tuesday lunchtime so may need to reserve. They offer Japanese cuisine, beautifully presented. We had salmon teriyaki don, prawn tempura, Gion Special Lunch Selection - Salmon teriyaki and organic hikari miso soup, botan rice and I had a Bento Box - chicken-katsu (panko crumbed chicken) Served with small salad, organic miso soup. We had great service which was very nice, the waitresses – waiter, filled our water at regular intervals and toped up my tea. Can be expensive but the set meals provide good value as food is delicious and real Kyoto style. (See my Dinner Review)

We were asked to leave even when we made a booking with 5 kids. They lied they didn’t private room and then said the room is too delicate for kids. Then we sat outside they asked the kids to take off shoes in case they dirty the seats and worry their hands will dirty the seats. And after we ordered, they came and asked us to leave. If they do t welcome kids then tell us upfront don’t take the reservation. Super disappointing

Went for dinner Friday night. Called and got no answer... emailed the booking service and no reply so took a chance and went anyway. Immediately got a table and served quite quickly. Order taken without being written down or read back. Food arrived at table one by one with about 20 mins between each dish. It was yummy but slow ! 5 dishes took almost 2 hours. Luckily we planned to share each dish so it wasn’t one of us eating while the other waited. Got offered a sorbet as an apology and thanks for our patience;)

Authentic local Japanese - we ate here twice and preferred it to Kushi and Ebisu where we ate once apiece. Here the staff are Japanese and the food is what you expect to get in a Japanese restaurant- Ebisu is more fusion (with no salads for example) and Kushi rather ordinary.

We loved this. Very authentic dishes and ambiance. The staff are Japanese which is lovely. We had a lot of things, from Japanese hot pot, to chicken dishes, to sushi and sashimi, salads... everything was wonderful. Right price as well.

We were guests and were treated to this restaurant a surprise awaited as you walk in or see it from the street you think it is a small place but as you pass the bar the restaurant opens up to very nice private booths and very suitable for business, personal or couples wanting privacy. Not cheap but food quality excellent fresh and service superb. This has to be treated as a medium to top end Japanese restaurant but worth it. The menu is varied and has many Japanese favorites including beautiful salads and fresh sashimi and sushi. Would definitely go back ideal for business Staff attentive and very friendly. All seven of us loved and it was our first time there and would all go back
