Family birthday celebration. We opted for the banquet. While the food was very good, I felt the $75 per head was a bit much for the amount of food we had. Although it looks like many courses, most of the dishes amounted to two pieces/bites each and in the case of the sushi, one piece each. The chef did allow for a food allergy and offered different dessert for the diner concerned.

Love this place - I requested the caravan and it was just amazing. Service was great and the food is consistent as always - I have been twice now and this place is now going to be my regular moving forward :)

Menu is difficult to understand and Serving portions are a lot smaller than what they used to be. Expensive for what you get.

I would recommend for somewhere to dine with a good ambiance however value for money was not there. $75 for a plate with a few pieces of sashimi is pushing it. Way overpriced.

It is a beautiful restaurant with awesome ambience and excellent food. The food is just perfect and I would certainly recommend coming here a few times to try all the items on the menu. Sashimi is my favourite. This is my second time...and I would come again. I found the service a little slow this time but other than that everything else was perfect.

The food was great. The sashimi was fresh and delicious. Even though it's not something I would usually order, I also highly recommend the sliders as they were one of our favourite dishes of the night. Our waiter was extremely friendly, helpful and efficient despite being very busy. I look forward to going back again soon.

Very disappointing experience. My special bento box arrived 20 min after meals for everyone else in the group had been delivered. Special of the day chicken karaage turned out to be a mix of dry pieces of meat and fish! My colleague's meal that was supposed to contain pan seared fish came with a few pieces of dry tempura instead. Overpriced and not very good.

Food was alright. Overall it was pretty pricy. Food also came very slowly, intervals between dishes was very long. Will not be coming again.

Great food - good ambiance - sadly limited flexibility with varying the menu - still don’t know why they simply can’t serve two extra gyoza so everyone on the table could have one? The lack of flexibility and customer focus compared to other similar quality restaurants was disappointing given the good quality of the food.

Great dinning experience for our group. Everyone really enjoyed the food! The service was friendly and professional and the atmosphere was perfect for a group yearly Christmas catch up! A little different to St Kilda but no negatives. Look forward to next time.

The only slight disappointment was heading upstairs to the 2nd level and it was far too loud with the DJ for us to sit and chat over a few drinks. The top level was closed for a function which is understandable at this time of year. Ended up having to find somewhere else.

Really like the restaurant and have been several times, but the pressure from the staff to eat and get out so they can get the next table booking in was unpleasant and detracted from our enjoyment of the evening catching up with friends. Will think twice before booking a table for a group again.

I like this place, but it's not cheap and can be very noisy. Would not recommend if you plan on having a nice quiet conversation. There are better Japanese restaurants in my opinion you could go too.

Normally both the food and service here is excellent, but unfortunately as we were showcasing one of Melbourne's most unique restaurants to some international visitors, we were served by a woman who was not as professional and respectful as we would have liked.

3rd time I’ve been. The food quality has decreased. The waitress we had was clearly new. Kept getting a reminder from a staff member that we could only have the table for a set timeframe however we would have been done a lot sooner if so much time wasn’t wasted waiting for our waitress.
