Had not reserved a table but was easily accommodated by friendly staff. Service was excellent and food of high standard. No rush - bit of a queue to pay bill but staff made even that part enjoyable. Jolly nice Malaysian chap. Cheers Bruce (Lee)

Very disappointed with the bento box we ordered. The sashimi was good, but everything else was poor with the exception of the sushi and steamed rice which were OK. The miso soup wasn’t very good and it took a long time to order.

Good Korean dish amd quick serving. More tailored for Korean groups and we had to be persistent to find a good table. But it worked out all right.

Limited choice but good food. Offer a good selection of beers and liquor. Very crowded as they cater for tour group as well. Book in advance to avoid the queue.
