We were great surprised when we first tried the Hosokawa, and have not been disappointed in subsequent visits. Great sashimi and very tasty noodles of various kinds. It has a really Tokyo feel and the food is excellent.

Have been a couple of times now and each time just gets better, being frequent visitors to Japan this restaurant is probably the most authentic Japanese Restaurant we have encountered in Australia. You know it's good when the restaurant is full of the local Japanese community. You definitely need to make a reservation - you won't be disappointed

Booked for 2 persons for early Friday (6pm) told we needed to vacate by 7.30pm. While this places certain pressure on diners, was OK for us as we knew the menu and were ready for relatively fast completion as my son needed to head out to party. Service was good and fast - ordered food and requested it be brought... More

I was already full after half portion of my chirashi meal set, the sashimi was fresh and the rice was well seasoned. The roasted eggplant was delicious as well! It was my first try and fell in love with it straightaway. Only if the staff could be more friendly, it would have made a perfect place to dine in.

Popped in at 8pm on a Wednesday night. Had prawn and avocado rolls and tempura scallops. Beautifully cooked and prepared. Very enjoyable. My son had the tempura prawn and it too was delicious. Go there it's great!!

My wife was asked to leave a near empty restaurant at 1300hrs on 05/10 because "she had a parm". MY wife had already paid for an order and was waiting to collect same when the manager ejected her from the restaurant for having "a pram". Staff objected but the manager waved them away. A contravention of the discrimination act. Awaiting... More

Their lunchtime special Bento Box is the best ever. Authentic Japanese food great atmosphere I can't wait to go back. Make sure you have a booking as this restaurant is often booked out and to watch the amazing food go by and not have the pleasure of tasting it would be devastating.

The freshest of fresh fish, friendly service and great value for money. Sat at the bar which is extra special as you watch the chef slice the fish.

This restaurant never fails in the quality & freshness of its seafood. We have never had a bad meal there.We have been regulars since they opened years ago. They have a good following judging by the familiar faces we see there. Staff are friendly & helpful. High end food warrants high end prices. But it is worth paying for quality.
