    Our large group went with the set banquet. The food was fantastic and even pleased the grumpy old man who ‘doesn’t like Asian food’. The ambiance was great, minor criticism that empty glasses, bottles and dishes could be removed more promptly. Note that bathrooms are upstairs, so consider this if you have mobility issues. Defs going back 😊

    Waited 30 minutes for hour order to be taken. We were there for 2 hours before we got our mains and were told they were closing the kitchen if we wanted to order anything else before we had even received our food. We took one smell and a spoonful and didn’t even bother eating the rest.

    You need to know what you are ordering especially with the large variety of Japanese food on offer. We did not and suffered the consequences. It could have been much better if we had some knowledge of each of the dishes on offer. But what we did have was quite nice and good value for money overall.

    food, except ramen, is expensive based on the quality, serve size and taste. Service could be improved. Doesn’t seem have enough staff to serve the entire restaurant

    Best Japanese in Adelaide. Excellent service, great food. Gobou chips are a favourite for the little ones. For the big people, Wagyu Beef Robata is amazing.

    As always, a superb dining experience. Tried the new duck ramen and the wagyu suhsi with foie gras - as delicious as it sounds. Himeji is such a consistently great restaurant in terms of food, service and ambience. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys Japanese food and drink.

    Good value. excellent quality food. authentic Japanese food and drinks. Only downside is restaurant was busy and they were understaffed due to covid work shortages. Staff were polite and efficient. I would definitely return to try other items on their extensive menu.

    The best Japanese cuisine to be found in Adelaide bar none. Ambience in the restaurant is great, and there is plenty of room for a lot of tables and guests. A sense of wanting to try everything on the menu and jealously eyeing off other tables foods will occur, but this just provides ample reason to come back again and again.

    Extremely poor customer service. Took over an hour and half for our food to arrive, despite many arriving after us and receiving their food. Our order was just ramen, there is no reason for two soup based meals to take over an hour to prepare. Not a single staff checked on us. Was sat there for over an hour with zero table service after ordering. Food is good, but wouldn’t return based on customer experience. Avoid if you value your time. Plenty of better options in and around the area.

    We didn’t get served for over an hour our drinks came 30mins after they finally took our order it was 2hrs in and we still didn’t have any food I got up to say we were leaving when they said it was just about to come out and this was the same for ever one around me they all were I even saw a table get up to get there own water bottles as it was warm in there and you got thirsty Food was fantastic but the service was disgraceful I tried to wave down the waitress multiple times to say we were ready to order and considering it was for a special occasion I won’t me coming back I got no apology for the poor service and just be wary if your hungry you might not be served for over an hour and no food for over 2hrs.

    I liked the food and price but I would have preferred not to be 'in the back' which is what it felt like. I assume they put us there because it was our anniversary so maybe they thought it was romantic?

    Food was really good, however the service was disappointing. They were understaffed. We were a party of 8, early booking and booked two days' prior. Some people got their meals early, others late and one person not at all because the restaurant forgot. Total wait time from when the first meal came out to the last was almost 2hrs. We also weren't approached for drinks so only ordered one round at the bar ourselves (it was table service). I would go back, but not if I was with a party of more than 3-4 people.
