Ordered: Beef bento box and beef hotpot Beef bento box was reasonably good. However, the doneness of the beef should be told firsthand, as it was served MR. Beef hotpot was pretty blend. Overall, service staff was friendly but food was average.

Very basic decor, staff happy to help, food was very good. Tempura lovely, the sizzling plates were fun for the kids and tasted good. Wine was very average - had a reasonable Aussie Shiraz by the glass, but the Nz sac Blanc was average. Kids...More

Tempura vegetable dish a delight as was the teriyaki chicken. Meals in small or large size so perfect for all appetites. Awesome looking dish delivered to another table - a seafood feast packed into a bamboo? boat. Good drinks list, friendly service, would go again.

We had sashimi both as takeaway and in the restaurant and the fish was uniformly fresh and delicious. Stay away from the fried salmon as it appeared to me to be over cooked. But I would go back for sashimi and sushi, and the location...More
