Fantastic Japanese restaurant. Excellent sashimi, sushi, hot options and sake. The staff are friendly and efficient. It is a restaurant for a special occasion as it is not cheap but well worth it!

Excellent quality ingredients, well prepared with friendly service. Outstanding dishes we had included the sushi platter with blue fin tuna belly, scallops drizzled with truffle oil and super fresh sea urchin roe, the seared wagyu and delicate, delicious chawan mushi. Unfortunately the teppan chef was away on our night and the sushi counter was booked well in advance but we will be back.

An authentic Japanese restaurant based in Crows Nest. There is a good variety of Japanese cuisines, yet the standard for each meal is very high. The service was very good and the food was delivered timely and it was delicious. My only feedback was that they had toro advertised being available, however when I ordered I was informed they had 'run out'

Food is good, but we went on a busy night so kitchen was a bit slow in bringing out our order but that was understandable. So no worries. We will come back again as we weren't able to try the Omakase meal because it was full.

Fantastic food and great service! This is simple sushi at its utmost best - no fancy fusion sushi in sight. It was fantastic watching the chef make each piece and serve to the diners. Would definitely recommend.

This is a wonderful traditional Japanese restaurant. Everything is delicious and immaculately prepared. The staff are attentive and very polite. They have both a sushi bar and a teppanyaki bar, but don't expect anything thrown here .. it is all about the food.

The food was great. The sashimi was very fresh. Despite the crowd, the service level was still good. Would definitely come back again. Only problem was the noise level from the next table was unbearable.

Food was fantastic, felt very authentic although I would've rated it 6/6 but the Chef kept coughing the whole time he was serving and prepping the food. If you're just call in sick and get a replacement, if possible.

Very nice food- good variety on menu. Table was a bit sticky from old food. Had a minimum $30 spend per person and 2% surcharge for paying with card, which I thought was a bit much.

Great experience. Highly recommend the omakase at the bar, where you can watch the chef skillfully prepare the fish and make the sushi in front of you. Definitely comeback again.

The food was fresh and delicious and our waiter was very sweet and efficient. The option for teppanyaki bar, sushi bar or a la carte dining was appealing. We will definitely come here to eat again.

One of the top Omakase restaurants in Sydney. Chef with his creativity uses a lot of local ingredients to create a very distinctive Sydney styled sushi.

The sashimi there was very fresh however the other dishes were on the average scale. Very over priced as well! Customer service wasn't that great either, we tried to ask for the bill many times but staff would just brush pass us until 5 minutes later.
