    We had a group of 5 and had been assigned the red room - service quality and speed, food and overall experience was good! Food is definitely more on the overpriced side, however, we were thankful that we had our own space and did enjoy the food despite the price. If you’re after something more intimate and quieter - this is the place for you!

    The food was great, just portion sizes were a lot smaller than what we were hoping for. I think for the price we spent would’ve been nice to get a little more than what we got however the quality of the food, drinks and service all made up for it. so would definitely recommend this place.

    The oysters, kingfish and wagyu starters were Michelin level. I ordered a rosè which came out warm and they offered me ice. What a way to ruin a french rosè. The tuna tacos were awful. The tuna was bland and the "taco" was STALE. I made a comment and no one cared. I got an "okay" The main chicken was good, almost as good as the gingerboy chicken. I cant comment on the dumplings and barramundi because they never arrived. I had to flap my arms in the air to get a waiter to come an order a drink... they never came to ask anything or order more food. The restaurant was not busy but the venue itself was beautiful and had great music. Super nice and chill.

    Me and my partner really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. It was soothing and calming. The food was spectacular and cooked to perfection. The service was quick and they were also very polite. 10/10 would recommend Ototo to my friends and family!

    The pre-made menus aren’t good in my opinion, the service was great and it wasn’t too loud, overall good restaurant if you know what you like.

    The main food did take a bit to come out after the first 3 dishes on the Fill Me Up menu. But other than that it was a great experience and really delicious food. $2 oysters were a steal!! Would come back for sure.

    Super wobbly table, and a water leak in the hallway blocking a filthy toilet.
