    Awful service. We got 3 dishes in 3 hours. We had to ultimately cancel one because it took more than 1 hr. When we asked about our order abput 1 hr later, they said "oh it will be out soon, in another 15mins. We haven't started making it yet." The worst experience i have ever had at a restaurant. Ruined our Valentine's dinner.

    We have been going there for years. Consistently good food, good value and something for everyone. Sushi boat for 3-4 is great value and always made fresh and precisely and always presented well. The Ramen is great with a very flavoursome broth with good consistency. My son always insists on going when he visits from Sydney.

    Had ramen, kara-age chicken and sushi. Went for my daughter's birthday - the complimentary dessert was awesome. Very high quality sushi - one of the places in Adelaide where the sushi is the same quality as it is in Japan. Very rare.

    The food was very good and if Japanese people eat there it must be good. The service however was very disappointing. For each course the dishes were not served at the same time. Our drinks on arrival were supplied but we were never asked if we would like more and our water bottle was never replaced. This restaurant is casual dining.

    The service was poor. Initially was given a table near the door and found that it's cold when the door was opened. Asked for another table, the waitress simply said "No" with an excuse that the tables are full with bookings. Firstly, we also had booked for the dinner and we saw there were plenty of tables available. She left and after a while she came back and saying that there was a table for us to move to. Later on, we asked another waitress for the birthday desserts as we knew about this offer when we booked the dinner. Again, the waitress simply said "No" with an excuse that this had to be booked in advance. We then told her that we had done the booking, she apologised afterwards. I don't understand the service at this place, they seem to just say "No" to everything a customer asked instead of trying to find the best outcome for their customer.

    There were 6 in our party. The food was fantastic. We ordered the banquet which doesn’t require pre ordering and some extra tempura prawns. Everything was absolutely delicious. Beautiful fresh sashimi. Flavoursome dipping sauces. Best agadashi tofu ever! The little bento box of 6 different desserts was a nice treat, which we shared. Background noise a bit much earlier in the night but it did improve as diners left. Drinks service a tad slow / forgetful. But sake recommendation also delicious so not actually complaining! 😅

    Nice food but disappointing sushi/sashimi boat. Very small and some left-field inclusions. Would expect it to be the most popular choices not the stuff that hasn’t sold…have had many better elsewhere. Yakitori was delish.

    Himeji restaurant is amazing! They make such great food, and team members are very friendly. The best thing about this restaurant is operated by Japanese people. Food was very authentic with a touch of modern sense. A huge range of drink menu was fantastic! My Japanese sake tasting set was just beautiful! Loved it so much. All the sashimi and sushi were very fresh, and I enjoyed all the flavours. I highly recommend.
