See my Zomato review! All you can eat - well I’ve been told that even if you only eat the most expensive item on the menu they’ll still make a profit and that is certainly the case. At $32 per person (without alcohol) I think the average person will spend the same at a different place with better options, however they feed under 4s for free so that’s actually a very attractive option to give some variety to the young ones without ordering extra. I really felt I didn’t enough to get good value but I’m trying to be healthy. The corkage for $5 is good value; but once you add the bottle of wine to the bill it’s comparable to many other places. There are only a limited number of high value items on the menu - sushi / sashimi (even then there is a lot of rice), beef carpaccio and cooked prawns. The rest of the items are generally cheap and filling. That’s not to say they are not tasty. The small bowl of noodle soup is actually a great small serving for a kid. They also say they size the servings based on the number of people on the table and I would definitely ask for smaller servings, particularly for things like gyoza. I also think they limit how quickly you get your food by only a limited number of the waiters who can take orders and only having them attend at less than frequent intervals; however once taken the orders came quickly. There is apparently a waste charge but they don’t enforce it if you’re being reasonable. If I was going adults only I probably would go to a place with a wider and nicer selection of food; eg Maedaya (or not do the AYCE) but for a family with young kids it’s a very good choice; the food comes quickly and the kids eat for free (or <4 at half price).
My husband, daughter and I ate at the 5.30pm sitting tonight (New Year’s Day). We were very impressed with the freshness of the food and the speed with which it was served considering the number of customers arriving at the same time. The sashimi was fresh but the fillings were a little ordinary. Everything else we ate was delicious. We enjoyed four entrees, four mains and rice. We were very impressed that the restaurant did not add a Public Holiday loading to the bill. Our waiter was just amazing providing courteous and timely service. Dirty dishes were cleared promptly. The meal was very reasonably priced and we appreciated being able to bring our own wine with only $5 charged for corkage. A very enjoyable experience and we will definitely return with friends. Clare
We did not opt for the $33 'all you can eat' menu as those around us did. The food for these people was forever flowing and obviously enjoyed by those who went this way with the menu. All of their dishes looked really amazing. We ordered a few dishes 'a la carte' and we to were not disappointed with our choices. The staff were friendly and incredibly efficient. The restuarant has a rather spacious feel and had few empty seats as far as I could see. We did make a booking luckily. It is BYO which suits us. For those that have large appetites and enjoy Japanese food this is certainly worth checking out.
i had attended to Fairfield branch as a friend had recommend it to me. i usually go to Brunswick which is a great restaurant. the atmosphere is great and the restaurant is larger and somewhat quieter than Brunswick which is great, however upon placing our first order, we were told that we cannot order too many of the same dish as it would cramp the table. we had to order a small number then order more once finished with the dishes received. i thought that was a little annoying as we would only have to wait longer to get the rest of the dishes. this is the only aspect I would fault at the Fairfield branch. food was good as expected and the service was fine also other than the initial incident.
Welcome special but not over the top. Excellent menu. Initially some concern whether waiter could understand me fully and she did and her younger colleagues fully conversant. Service again was excellent without sloppy sucking up for tips. food came fresh and without long wait even though restaurant 70 percent full. Pricing very reasonable. Venue easy parking being on northern fringe of shopping centre. Only reason not 6star was that the restaurant had no outlook but for west facing (hot sun) busy Station St. A Japanese garden courtyard venue would make it an 8 star.
Great range of tasty Japanese foods served by attentive staff in a pleasant environment. The venue is BYO with fixed price / all you can eat menu, enabling you to sample different foods and have more serves of those you particularly like. The staff are very attentive and unlike so many other restaurants, it is quiet enough to facilitate discussions with your guests. A thoroughly good night out & highly recommended.
