Great service. Staff was attentive without being overbearing. Great menu selection and the dishes were quick to come out. Best of all there were no bill stuff ups, which has happened in almost every other restaurant in Brisbane when I've organised a large group.

The food was outstanding, everything we ordered was fresh and flavourful. We really enjoyed the diversity of the drinks menu as well. Recommend the jelly sake.

Great food, excellent service. Tempura prawns amazing. Have been a few times now and will keep going back. Need to try everything on the menu.

Good place to eat, however quite small so if you have a big group, it is best to book ahead. I don't think the Bento is worth the price but pork ramen is nice. Service was quite slow. There were 6 of us and our food came out one by one with around 10-15 mins interval so this might be something they need to work on.

The menu options were excellent and food was served quickly. The only reason I didn't give a 6 rating was that the ramen wasn't as good as I've had at most other establishments. Would still definitely eat there again though just minus the ramen.

Staff were friendly and obliging. Food was fresh and nicely presented. Yummy gyoza especially. Loo is a long way from the restaurant through not particularly attractive alleyways, but this is a minor compliant.

Delicious and authentic food, reasonably priced for the quality. There's a wide range of sake available, plus Japanese beers and a few wines. Only downside is it is a bit noisy.

Great Japanese. They have specials on weekdays, on Tuesday when we visited you could buy edemame for $1 with any drink. The food was all high quality and came out quickly.

This was a special event, and it basically lived up to expectations. They kept the food and sake coming regularly and provided good explanations for what was served.
