I booked at 8pm to celebrate my friend’s anniversary, and the waiter who was a very attentive person was pressing us that we had to order fast because they were going to close the kitchen. I understand that, but in the end they did not want us to ask for a dessert. I begged him for a dessert

My complaint was it was way too dark and very loud, with yelling needed to be heard. Also booths are quite tight for a larger person, which we had with us on that night. It left a red mark across the middle of his stomach. In that regard, perhaps it could be stated that larger people request a table.

We have been here before and loved it. However this visit was really disappointing. The service was very slow and we had to hassle waiters for attendance on several occasions. The food didn't have its usual spark either. Worse of all, we were asked to leave at the end of 2 hours (9:30pm) despite many vacant tables and the fact we were still drinking and going to order desserts! Our bill for 6 people was $600 ish so that was disappointing.

A good, convivial vibe for dinner with a group. The food was delicious, we had the banquet, and the decor very cool. The service wasn’t great however and it was nearly impossible to get our glasses of water refilled.

Kurtis gave the most amazing service my partner and I have ever received at a restaurant. It was actually the first time I gave a $20 tip in Australia because his service added to our amazing dinner.

We had to call staff over to order, then we had to keep reminding staff about our drinks. We were then asked to leave at 9 15 as our table had another booking and we hadn’t even finished eating

A banquet for 2 would have been great or recommendations on what to try from staff would have been good.

It was an overall fantastic experience. My partner and I had a few food intolerances between us and we were put at ease from the beginning. Staff members let us know they had received info about the intolerances and that we would be looked after. The food was fantastic and the space was really cool. I'd go back again!

I've been to ichi ni quite a few times purely because i love the food.
This time i had come for my birthday and i believe the service wasn't the best.
I didn't think it was that busy either.
I felt like i had to numerously remind our waiter and other waiters to fill up our water - maybe you should leave a jug on the water if they can't keep up with filling our glasses with water.
With the the heat and salty foods we were quite thirsty all night.
It took the waiter a long time to come up to us and take our order and when i asked if i could please have gluten free soy sauce they kept forgetting - but eventually brought something over after a few times of reminding.
i too was a little ill after my meal when i chose specific gluten free option - just something they may of had cross contamination. Nothing to worry about.
Other than that the food was great and my friends seemed to of enjoyed it.

Had a great time at Ichi Ni Nana. Only let down was I wasn't aware we only had a 2 hour sitting and at the end the manager brought us our bill but didn't warn us that we had to leave soon so we had to take our drinks and go upstairs which was fine. but a warning would've been nice.

After having numerous great experiences at Ichi Ni, we took some friends there to see what the hype was about.
The food was amazing (however it was annoying that they wouldn't make a favourite that was no longer on the menu - salmon hand roll), however service was very poor.
We had to constantly try to get other waiter/witnesses attention to order drinks, dessert, and then to ask for the bill.
The restaurant was busy, however they should have had more waiters/waitresses on if they couldn't keep up with the demand.

Went there for a dinner with a friend
Been there a couple of times and I quite like it because of the atmosphere and it’s closed to where I live...
Food was not bad, staff was friendly but charged you for almost a fine-dining Japanese restaurant... anyway I’m happy for what I get and enjoyed the night

Not that Japanese at all, everything was extremely tasty apart from the sushi which was honestly pretty average. Covered in ketchip/mayo/etc hardly tasted like sushi!

The other food was beautiful, sushi let it down.

Asked twice would the servers slow down the delivery of the feed me. And it was still dumped onto the table without much chance to breath between dishes.
