Very disappointed. Booked dinner for 7pm. When we got there we were asked to wait outside and they sat down walk-in guests before us. Waited 45 mins to be seated then another 20 mins for them to take our order. We had to follow them up about our order as it took way too long...

The food was very good, and decor looked authentically Japanese, but the service was not up to cultural standard. Would recommend and return.

I’m a Japanese who loves Yakitori so got excited when I found that we can get yakitori in the inner west. Yakitori was good. I like that innerds were part of offering as any yakitori place in Japan would. Other dishes were also authentic Japanese. Downside was that all of the waiters were there to simply take orders and bring food and had some awkwardness in communication with the guests. The menu was confusing, not a lot of explanations where non Japanese would need and there were many spelling errors. Chef’s selection (omakase) assorted yakitori did not show breadth of the offering but felt repetitive. This restaurant is ok but I continue my search for a good yakitori place.

Average yakitori experience - omakase was predominantly chicken.

Can't wait to go back. Each meat or vegetable was grilled over the coals to perfection with little or no sauce. Chef highlights the essence of each ingredient. Masterful stuff. For a table of 4 including 2 bottles of BYO wine ($12 corkage per bottle), we ate like kings and came in under $60 per head. Outstanding.

This place is normally great, but on this occassion the service was lacking. We ordered a rice dish but it didnt come, we then told the waitress and she advised they had forgotton and they were currently making us one so it would be a abit of a wait. We saw it being cooked in the kitchen, however it was given to another table. We asked the waitress again and she apologised while the other waitress laughed cause she incorrectly gave it to another table.
Not very satisfactory and a great let down.
