Atmosphere was good, very wide and open spaces. Food tasted very overpowering, the ebi prawns had a nice wasabi mayo however it overpowered the taste of the prawns, similar with the scallops, the soy based scallops was too salty.

The saving grace of the night was the service, they were very accommodating and nice.

Service wasn’t the greatest, when we arrived we got told to go upstairs then when we got upstairs we got told to go downstairs. We also waited 2 hours for some plates to arrive and it wasn’t until I mentioned it that they realised they hadn’t brought it out. Although the food was amazing and very tasty. The waitress that fixed up the order again was lovely. However don’t know if I’d rush back.

Very small portions, incredibly overpriced and our poor server was run off his feet whilst a collection of female servers seemed to be standing around not doing much! Our server was amazing, cannot fault him. However the portions are so small and overpriced! $20 for two very small meat skewers and nothing else. Really? Far better choices around Fitzroy. We won't be going back.

Food was delicious just like typical Japanese way of approaching anything in life. Just do You best.The price for drinks a little bit over the top and background music not really suitable for this experience. Overall service was very good and food just yaaaammmm.

really appreciate level of expertise in food prep but prices are really exorbitant .i think $12 for two slivers of octopus left me gobsmacked.
would never return as i think when i want to spend on a special dinner it wouldn't be here.
staff were wonderful and front of desk person was so kind and professional to me
i went out to celebrate that my first round of cancer treatment was successful and I'm sorry that we left quite hungry

The food was good and the service was excellent except we were seated under the vents even though I specified in my booking to be seated somewhere comfortable for a heavily preggo person with us. And wasn’t allowed to move to a different spot even if I arrived there at opening and absolutely no one was there yet. Still good.

I booked as a solo diner, was greeted and seated with a warm welcome. Service was prompt and professional without feeling rushed. Food was fantastic, clean, fresh, simply presented. Lotus chips, veg Gyoza and snapper sashimi. I happily sat taking in the lively atmosphere, read my book a while and left feeling completely satisfied.

Going back tonight 🙏

Fish were the highlight, everything was really fresh and well prepared. I've had better rice. Sake was good value but I missed an ice bucket. Service was OK but there's definitely room for improvement. I was a bit bummed that the kitchen closed not long after we arrived (at 20:45), even though the place says it's open until late. Overall, a really nice experience. I definitely will be coming back.

Good setting to catch up with friends. If you’re wanting a better ambience try and sit out of the mezzanine and in the larger dining area.

Overrated, bland food.
No delicacy, no particularly Japanese flavours. Very disappointed considering price.

Our group of 3 was seated in the 'Bamboo Garden' courtyard, which was lovely as it felt spacious and lush. We ordered a selection of small and sharing plates, didn't have to wait long at all to begin feasting. The Ich Ni maki rolls were so good, we had to get another round! Highly recommend the Hokkaido scallops five ways as well *chef's kiss*! Special props to our server, Evelyn, who was attentive and efficient. We had a wonderful night out and would definitely return.
