Delicious as always! Fabulous restaurant to dine at. Thank you!
It appeared initially that they did not have enough staff, however food eventually came, albeit timing was a bit out of whack. The fried food appeared to be mostly bought stuff, and the "special" fried squid legs were very rubbery. They forgot the one dessert order that had to be made (daifoku) so we had to wait after everyone else at our table had to go. Staff were pleasant enough but no apparent leadership or direction. After all that, they charged the wrong bill and I had to go back the next day. We have eaten here and also Okami several times in the past and think Okami is a far better option.
Overall, a bit hit and miss and that was disappointing. Tempura was by far the best dish. But it was frustrating because it was followed by mediocre dishes. The sushi rice was not flavoured and it was not, making it a very bland experience. As such, we did not order any more sushi and hence the belief the meal was not value for money. Service was passable, given that it was busy, but two dishes that were ordered were forgotten by the kitchen. I really wanted to like this place but left feeling it has been greatly overrated by previous reviewers.
We went to the early sitting. Service was pretty good sometimes took a few waves to get attention but they were pretty busy. The food was super fresh and quick service. They have changed the menu a little but still lots of choices. Recommend the Seafood tempura and Prawn spring rolls but everything was lovely
Great value. Lovely food. Small number of staff who work very hard, so just be patient on a busy night and put in a decent sized order so the food flows and you don’t have to try and catch their eye if you choose the all you can order option.
This was a fantastic experience. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, and left us feeling very satisfied. I also really like the wastage rules, as this helps people respect the hard work the chefs are doing.
Usually, it is good but today the dish is a little bit undercooked. For example fried tofu taste soggy and other dish taste similar. Hopefully, this is just one time event. Place is neat and clean. Waitress is good mannered but they really do know what’s on the menu.
