Amazing food and service...the larger sashimi plate was so delicious and worth the money.
Restaurant was a little chilly but wouldn’t stop me from going back.

The experience of eating here was incredible. Food was outstanding, and despite being a little expensive, it was worth it.
The only reason why I gave 4 starts, and not 5, is because they only allowed us to eat for 1.5 hours. My partner only do one date a month and we chose to come here. It wasn't until we arrived that we were told we could only do 1.5 hours. I accept that many restaurants have a 2 hour window, but 1.5 hours was so short. I felt like we got kicked out. other than this is was amazing.

We went on Christmas Eve for a casual family dinner, food was excellent, the service was outstanding, our server was informative and attentive and fun with our children!
We had a good mix of modern sushi and traditional Japanese dishes the Okonomiyaki was divine and indulgent, but actually everything was great! Located in Surrey Hills 5 mins from CBD and worth the trip East.
We live in London and have amazing Japanese restaurants to compRe to and this is super high on our list!!!

The food was okay, but the sashimi tacos were served with brown, bruised avocado and the fish wasn't cut well and didn't seem fresh. If you're seated upstairs, you'll end up smelling like cooking/frying oil as you're right above the fryers. I don't think we'll be back as the cost was really high for the quality and value. Service was nice and fast. Cocktail menu was very sweet. Sake was good. Sushi menu weirdly isn't very extensive. Overall, it was fine, but don't think we'll be back again.

Food was Excellent. The floor plan however was quite close together and crowded on the side bench seating upstairs, we felt too close to the group next to us. The service was slow to begin with but friendly throughout our evening. Overall it was a good night and we would go again.

The pricing was way more than it was worth. Myself and company ordered the bao buns which were so delicious and we could’ve just eaten a tray of those. However the bento boxes were not mice at all. Agadeshi tofu tasted like rubber, salad was weirdly peppery and chicken teriyaki was over cooked and had little to no sauce accompanying it. Very disappointed

Never have I been to a restaurant where gluten free is the rule not the exception! Not only was it refreshing to feel normal but to have such a selection!
The sushi was incredible, mouth-wateringly fresh flavoursome fish.
The wagyu beef was soft melt in the mouth cooked to perfection.
The spinach and sesame side was a fantastic accompaniment so full of flavour & really unique.
Having a gluten free soya sauce bought to the table especially.
The portions are very generous leaving some to take home.
Service here was impeccable, friendly and intuitive! They even actually read the note on opentable I had left to say I was GF before I arrived.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
