Great food and drinks. We ordered Tostada, Dumplings, sushi rolls, steak, and fish. Liked everything we ordered (except the fish) but the dumplings were definitely the best. Definitely give this one a try!

Found this lovely Japenese fusion restaurant online and through reviews! It's quite a discreet hidden restaurant but once you enter it's got a great atmosphere! The menu had a mixed choice for all tastes and we were fully stuffed after sharing multiple different plates! So good and will definitely be back!

The dining room was bustling on our last visit, it has a nice vibe, and once sat down we could enjoy the excellent service. We had a large group and as the food is made to share our waiter arranged for enough of each course so that everyone got a portion. The Nikkei cuisine (Japanese Peruvian fusion) is an exciting mix blending elements of Japanese food with the flavours of South America. Every dish was delicious, standouts for me were the ceviche, the karaage chicken was the best I've ever had, the octopus was beautifully smokey, the pork belly was impossible (crisp light skin, meltingly tender and moist), and the lamb chops were gorgeous. If you want to try Japanese food with a twist, you must eat here

Awesome food with interesting flavours that made for a great experience. The staff were lovely, helpful and knowledgable about their food and wine selections. Would (and already have) recommend it.

Attended Azabu on a weeknight for dinner. There was a big group of us so we opted to have the set menu (about $58pp).

Safe to say we were completely blown away. The food was delicious, tasty and incredibly inventive. The plates were small but by the end of the set menu we were completely full and satisfied.

Wine list is also quite good and has a decent selection to offer.

One of the best Japanese fusion restaurants we have ever been to. Highly recommend.
