We have never eaten here before but wow we were completely blown away. Quant atmosphere, the meal was so tasty I never wanted it to finish . I knew it was good as soon as I tried miso soup, which I usually don't get very...More

Authentic ambience and westernised taste. The chef and waiters spoke Japanese. I could not observe leveraging local Tasmanian produce. Shoyu ramen broth was way too sweet, however the noodles were excellent in texture. Chirashi rice was over cooked with a mere two pieces of sashimi....More

Nice Japanese food, not much has been done with the interior and is quite small, but the food speaks for itself. Hard to get a second drink

I was here with my friends and we did took a while before we placed our order but the waitress was very patience. It tasted really nice and the portion definitely worth the price.
