Looking at the other reviews I must say I'm surprised! Perhaps we just had a bad night of service.

As a couple we went to this restaurant before seeing a concert in Newtown. We made sure to give ourselves an hour and a half to eat and when we arrived at the restaurant it wasn't busy.

The food came out very slowly and then eventually stopped. We had received one of our entrees and our drinks. Other tables were starting to fill up. We asked the waiter when the food was coming and were told 10 minutes. After 10 minutes we asked again and were told it's coming shortly. A few minutes later and still no food.

By this point we had lost it especially because we had seen other tables before already being served our mains, and one of our entrees was yet to arrive. The waitress made no apology. By this point we had to leave because we wouldn't have been able to take our time with our main meal.

Booked a table and they had 1x table for us after 15 mins. Sushi train seats were busy but we got a corner one which was great. Tried the sashimi tacos which I liked least as it was on a hard taco, but it was still fresh. A lot of sauce though.

Tried age dashi tofu which was average (I've had worst and I've had better). The best one that we ordered was dragon sushi (eel and prawns) which my friend thoroughly enjoyed. We also ordered japone salmon sushi which I thought was excellent!! My friend also had teriyaki beef which was cooked to her liking.

The waitresses were helpful although there weren't many of them. Food came out in trickles, which was a nice rhythm instead of coming out all at once. They never once rushed us for a table.

Would definitely come here again.

Greats options for sushi and a great list of Japanese beers to go with. A bit on the expensive side (specially for beers) but well worth it.

Three of us went on a Saturday night. As we had booked, we were given a table. As we found out, we were lucky, because there aren't that many of them. A large part of the floor space is occupied by a sushi train / counter.
Food was advised to be Japanese Fusion. It was great. Different take on somewhat familiar dishes. Very fresh and well prepared. The wait staff were all as attentive as they could be on a busy night. Does BYO wine. Can also purchase drinks there.
We will definitely go again, and hope for a repeat of this first experience.

Service was great, food was great. Please was small but cosy. Wish they had more tables rather than the sushi train in the middle.
