On Saturday night we met some friends and decided to catch up over dinner. I had heard good things about Janken but had never eaten there, but we decided to try it. Fortunately I made a booking that afternoon. The place is small and when we arrived at 6:30pm there were reserved signs on most of the indoor tables. The food and the service was superb. My husband and I eat a plant based diet and there was so much good food to choose from. All the desserts are dairy and egg and refined sugar free and are amazing! I highly recommend that if you go you make sure to save room for the desserts. This place has become the new favourite for all 4 of us. We will be sure to be visiting again soon!

Just up the road, small and intimate with great authentic Japanese cuisine. The staff are superb - we are so lucky to have Janken.

We ordered bento boxes and were delighted with the variety of foods! I will look forward to another lunch here.

Excellent friendly Japanese service. Unique menu options. Interesting drinks list. Prompt food service to table. Simple flavoursome 'clean' food. Loved the Saikyo Salmon and the seafood hot pot. Highlight of the meal. Green Tea cake. Vegan. Delicious. We will be back. Go there. Write a review!

Small and cozy restaurant with friendly staff. Good location but Food was average. A bit expensive for the food quality
