The food was enjoyable with an interesting range of options. The service was great and helpful advice was readily given. Great experience in a harbourside environment
Had a lovely meal, we ate the Tapas which proves to be far more expensive but then you get a lot of variety instead of one meal. The seaweed salad was our favourite followed by the scallops and sashimi. Saporo on tap which is a bonus. The staff were attentive. Enjoyed our night and would go again.
Fantastic location, great service and the food was excellent. Found a new grape to try for our wine too, at a very reasonable price for the quality of the whole experience
Delicious Japanese food. We ordered several entrees and mains to share. We loved every dish and the kids could not get enough of the gyoza and the miso salmon. The staff was very friendly and helpful!
Easy traditional Japanese food. The sushi dishes were definitely the best - very fresh. This is a great spot to relax and enjoy the Sydney Harbour view over some tasty Japanese dishes.
The red wine was served warm. The sashimi plate of 10 pieces was overpriced. They didn't bring the rice we ordered and we had to ask to have it removed from the bill. It was pleasant sitting outside on a beautiful evening.
Food was ok, service was good. Really needs to be better to survive, Sydney has great Japanese food. The sushi was good, not great, the rest was just ok. Waiter was friendly and provided good service so it has potential.
Great location , great service Great food Got in quick and easy service excellent so we got to the theatre on time Would recommend especially to theatre goers
Tasty but no different to any other Japanese restaurant in the area. Seafood platter was good except no seared scallops, fresh scallops instead and they were delicious. The oysters were very, very good.
Delicious fresh food and great service. Great pre or post theatre venue by the water. The dishes are designed to be shared. Great wine selection too.
