A lovely atmosphere for lunch sitting at the sushi bar
It's great to watch the sushi chefs creating each sushi and sashimi dish .
They are all works of art
The food is very fresh and delicious
Some dishes were a little too tricky with too many flavors
Some things don't need to be reinvented
Overall a lovely experience !

Freshest seafood and inventive gyoza.
We had a pre dinner drink at the Chablis bar upstairs and were very well looked after

Slick, well presented and the full Japanese dining experience.

The bar on the third floor is lovely. Comfy chairs, nice atmosphere. Wished we had a little more time to enjoy it. Definitely recommend the G and T with Yuzu tonic.

We dined on the lower floor.next time would recommend sitting up at the kitchen for the full theatrics.

Food was delicious, well executed. Amazing flavours and artful presentation, highly recommend the appetizers of Wagyu and mozzarella with the truffle mayonnaise. The sushi/sashimi deluxe box is excellent value and does fill you up. It's a good taster when one goes there the first time.

Great venue for a date night or catching up with friends.

A huge restaurant over a few floors.
This new Melbourne haunt, adds little to any variation of a well trodden path to Sushi Stardom, for a start there are plenty of staff, but little attention to service. Whilst the food is no different to any upmarket Japanese, the lack of service, pulls this down to average.

Also watch the wine vintage is the year you ordered from the wine list.

Had lunch with friends and enjoyed sashimi dumplings edamame salad and sardines.
Food is fresh but expensive. 12 small sashimi $40. Lunch was $125 head.
We did enjoy Chablis with it and this was a highlight.
Was a good lunch but I won't be returning as too many better restaurants around this area
