    Hands down the best salmon sashimi ever. Rolls were a textural delight. Wagyu beef gyoza was something special. Spare ribs tasted a bit gamey but sauce was nice.

    Japanese fusion, sashimi all fresh and the grilled scallop is surprisingly an interesting dish, dessert heaven for all those sweet tooth indulgers, went here on sat night service was not so pleasant.

    Really delicious food. The grilled salmon was phenomenal. If you want to splash out a bit, go with the Sora tasting menu :)

    Great atmosphere, long wait for a table but worth it. Expensive dishes but if you go with friends everything can be shared. Miso salmon was the piece de resistance! Amazing.

    High quality Japanese demands a high price. Very diverse range of delicious and unique cocktails. There can be a long wait for walkins at peak times - have a cocktail at the bar while you wait.

    Attentive service for a walk-in on a Saturday night. We sat in the Bar area by the window which was quieter on a busy evening. Zucchini Wafu and Pumpkin Tempura are must light eats. Sashimi is fab

    As good as any other Jap restaurant. Not really fusion or anything different, where u can get same quality elsewhere for cheaper. Service is also minimal.

    Best Japanese I've eaten in Sydney. The seared beef is amazing. Service was very good but if you're not patient you might find the food a bit slow to come out.

    The food is really quite delicious, fresh, and worth the cost. The service I received wasn't anything to write home about. But, on a nice summer evening, a great place to sit outside and people watch.
