    We literally visited this place after being featured in MasterChef and we were super excited for the food. The overall experience was alright but we expected better especially since it was featured in one of the highly watched shows of Australia. Starting with the service, it was extremely difficult to catch someone’s attention every time we wanted something. It seemed more like the staff was looking at their feet while walking instead of gazing around to see if anybody needs anything. One FOH took an order of a table seated after us even though we were trying our best to grab his attention. I also understand that hospital is understaffed at the moment The person on door who was taking us to our table was also not very pleasant. Didn’t bother even giving a smile. He also helped us with the payment at the end and kept running around while doing it and we were left confused as to what we have to do or where should the payment be made. The spicy edamame was epic as well as the lobster salad taco. I would come back just to eat these two things over and over again. The chicken dumpling was so tender and the gyoza skin melted in our mouth. The yuzu lemon lime bitters was really good too. However the lotus chips especially the side dip was a downer. The Ebi Mayo was overpowered by the taste of mustard and the Tobi karage was under seasoned. The ambience was really good but the tables were very close to each other. We could hardly hear our conversation as the neighbouring tables were so loud and noisy.

    Had dinner here with some friends food was a hit or miss, beef bao has no flavour they were bland. Lamb chops were good. One of the waiters spilled a wine on me during service. We were seated upstairs near their rooftop bar the music was too loud and lighting was too dark for dinner.. we wanted to be in the main dinner section.. our table was very small The starters couldn’t all fit on the table we felt rushed with the food the mains came out 10 minutes after the starters came. Didn’t have a good experience last night. I’ve dined here before it use to be alot better.

    I have been here a few times abs always loved the vibe and service. But this time, the service levels had dropped. We had wait a while to be served and it wasn't as warm a feeling. We asked for extra chilli sauce, it took for ever and even then it was the wrong sauce. The lade taking orders wasn't listening. I hope things improve.

    Loud disco music all through our dinner was off putting and felt inappropriate. Food was great but service was too fast - virtually finished our meal in 30 minutes and asked pretty much if we want dessert while we were finishing our mains. Needed to order edamame beans after dinner just to keep sitting in an unhassled way.

    Food, service and environment fantastic. Music too loud and too repetitive. Almost felt combative, trying to talk over it and the doof doof base. We were there for dinner and connecting with company, not a night club.

    Half an hour out from our seating being over we were told by the waitress that we had one meal to come and would need to finish it in that time, so we felt pressured. Fifteen minutes till our seating was over and we were given the bill and asked if we wanted take away containers, from then out someone came and bothered us every five minutes. It was an awful feeling. There was two of us and we had a bill of $200, the least they could do was let us enjoy the remainder of our booking in peace, we were more than happy to leave and spend more money else once the seating was over.

    We have been to Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya a few times and have really loved the food and atmosphere. This time we felt a little let down. The food didn't feel as fresh and vibrant as usual. The teriyaki chicken was tough and didn't taste as good as we have come to expect.

    Service was extremely poor. Waiters looked annoyed that we were there. We had to wave and call for drinks and ordering all night. Waited nearly an hour to order to begin with and then rushed to eat our mains so that they could have us out. Food was good although chocolate spring rolls underwhelming. Won’t return based on service.

    im sorry to say but big disappointment. Firstly from arriving and not being acknowledged for over 5 mins, was not happy when we asked to change from a booth to a table as one of the group is a larger person and cannot fit in this seating, server was definately not happy and showed it. After being seated, took 10 mins before a server came to take drink orders, Serves of prosecco were in the tiniest of glasses and 2 orders both were flat and asked for new serves which were much better. out of 6 entrees we tried, 2 were ok. the veg tempura we got 2 pieces of pumpkin literally the size of a child's palm, which was $12 of nothing, the 2 different gyoza ordered were served to us cold, the fried tofu only 2 pieces were fried, the rest were underdone and not cooked. we ordered the Ichi ni and they were sour and no hint of lobster at all. Could not get attention of staff and food was forgotten to be served to us and we waited ages to get our meals out and had to remind the staff to bring it. So so disappointed, have been so many times in the past, this is a no no from now on. There are much better places to get Izakaya style Japanese by far and after spending $300 its way too over glorified and over priced for street food. Dont bother just for the sake of it being trendy.

    Even though we loved the mood lighting (and loved the light shades), as there was only one shade lighting the centre of the table - could not see all of the food spread before us. (We shared dishes amongst the group and the dishes were spread the length of the table - could only see dishes in the centre of the table - sitting directly und the lamp light. Otherwise, no other issues.

    I don’t know if they are under the shortage of staffs but it was so hard to get someone to come to your table to get something. No one came to ask if everything was okay or if we need anything else. This is just a fair place to eat. I have tried a lot of Japanese restaurants but the service here is unacceptable.
