    im sorry to say but big disappointment. Firstly from arriving and not being acknowledged for over 5 mins, was not happy when we asked to change from a booth to a table as one of the group is a larger person and cannot fit in this seating, server was definately not happy and showed it. After being seated, took 10 mins before a server came to take drink orders, Serves of prosecco were in the tiniest of glasses and 2 orders both were flat and asked for new serves which were much better. out of 6 entrees we tried, 2 were ok. the veg tempura we got 2 pieces of pumpkin literally the size of a child's palm, which was $12 of nothing, the 2 different gyoza ordered were served to us cold, the fried tofu only 2 pieces were fried, the rest were underdone and not cooked. we ordered the Ichi ni and they were sour and no hint of lobster at all. Could not get attention of staff and food was forgotten to be served to us and we waited ages to get our meals out and had to remind the staff to bring it. So so disappointed, have been so many times in the past, this is a no no from now on. There are much better places to get Izakaya style Japanese by far and after spending $300 its way too over glorified and over priced for street food. Dont bother just for the sake of it being trendy.

    Even though we loved the mood lighting (and loved the light shades), as there was only one shade lighting the centre of the table - could not see all of the food spread before us. (We shared dishes amongst the group and the dishes were spread the length of the table - could only see dishes in the centre of the table - sitting directly und the lamp light. Otherwise, no other issues.

    I don’t know if they are under the shortage of staffs but it was so hard to get someone to come to your table to get something. No one came to ask if everything was okay or if we need anything else. This is just a fair place to eat. I have tried a lot of Japanese restaurants but the service here is unacceptable.

    Food was meh. Ambience was great - very cool back garden although it is not very "outdoors" if you're hoping for a lot of air flow for Covid reasons. All of the food we had was just okay. I've had better gyoza from frozen at home, the pork bao buns were overwhelmed by an overdressed slaw, and everything else followed the same underwhelming pattern. Our server was great, however, and drinks were pretty tasty.

    I found hair in one of the dishes. Waiter helped me to replace a new dish right away which is good. But it left a bad feeling when you think of someone's hair in you mouth.

    Great ambience. Great service, our waitress was delightful, friendly and informative. Food: we chose smaller plates to share between 5 and represented good value. : our 3 Main larger dishes adequate but the Shiokoji Duck was not easy to share and did not represent good value at $34, when compared to the Beef Curry and Pork dishes. Dessert was just delicious, enjoyed by the 3 girls. Would recommend this restaurant.

    Thanks for the nice experience, the food was good. The noise level and music were too high and we found conversing a bit difficult. It would be good if the acoustic insulation was improved and music lowered.

    The ambience was excellent. I love the big booths and the dim lighting. The overall feel was really cool and modern. Very comfortable and cozy. The food was good but I expected better given the price. The sushi rice was pretty soggy. If I was a sushi chef, there’s no way I would have served that. I would have forgiven that if it was a food court stall or a cheap eat but not a restaurant of this calibre. The best dishes for the night were the coffin bay oysters and the beef tataki. It was a good experience and we enjoyed it. Would I go again? Probably not. I’ve had much better Japanese cuisine so this one doesn’t make the cut.
