    Gyu tataki (beef) is absolutely to die for, better than the pork belly which is awesome in itself.

    Great service again and even better food! The pork belly entree and Pork Ramen were superbly prepared tonight.

    The crispy prawn & kingfish roll for $19 is so not worth it when the Bento is $18 & has more food! Don't get ripped off.

    The Bento box is awesome - but make sure you have lots of room in your belly! Read more

    Great food . You seriously can't go wrong . When busy , give yourself lots of time as service can become quite slow . If waiting for a table , be sure to get a drink at the bar

    When it gets busy, there's lack of service. So unless u have heaps of time to kill when it's busy!
