Everything about this restaurant is what I want when dining! Professional staff, amazing food and incredible busy atmosphere. Abit pricey but what do you expect it's in the Star Casino. 5* for everything!!

Arrived with disappointment as reservation was not found, but reception staff was very friendly to allow us sit and eat in the bar lounge. Sashimi very non-traditional offered unexpected sumptuous taste. Sparkling medium sweet Saka is highly recommended. Lamb Chop was on the average only....More

Went here for a work function. Food was OK but the service was deplorable. Would not recommend it visit again.

We enjoyed the flavours and creativity of the dishes. Service was excellent. They have a choice of two areas, one bright and buzzing, one darker and quieter. I think the sake choices let the overall rating down.More

We had a lovely evening and the food was amazing however when we got the bill I was shocked at the pricetag. I wouldn't go again... the food was great but not worth such dollars.

The quality here is really great and the price is not over the top, most times i go i normally spend between 140-160 for two people which is not too bad, it has a nice arrangement and the service is always fairly quick
