Great food and very attentive staff. Excellent wine list. It was a pity that we were the only guests at the time but hopefully others will discover this great restaurant

This was an easy and efficient way to book the restaurant. I was just a bit concerned that the booking had been made so I checked with the restaurant. All was well.

The food was great, especially for the price compared with places in the cbd. The only thing that let it down would be the atmosphere, we were the only table there (9 of us) - though our booking was for 7pm on a Sunday. First time going japanese, would go again.

Seaweed salad was fresh, tempura prawn maki was good but the grilled duck breast was not fresh and tasteless . The dory fillet was not up to standard also. Efficient service .

Sashimi & sushi rolls are in good quality, but mains are quite disappointing, lunch time lack of waitress. After changing ownership, Orita is going downhill.

Very disappointing. All the food was fried and there was no way the $85 Wagu was that. Service was non existent. Poured our own wine and the mains came out at all different times. We will not be returning.
