All staff were very friendly and accomodating, I felt they valued having me dine there. Nice spot out the back courtyard, warm enough despite being in the middle of winter. Good menu range and can cater for all dietary requirements. Absolutely delicious. Will be back!

The food was fantastic as always. I was impressed with the fresh salmon, and my owner was very happy to hear that the noodles are made by the business. Takumi, our server, provided excellent customer service and I couldn’t fault anything.

The booking system is great, we were seated straight away. In the past we could not book so had to wait outside for 15 mins, sometimes in the cold. Very friendly and professional service. Food is consistently good. This place remains our family's favourite since Day 1 we went. Will definitely be our favourite for a long while.

Great food, we love this place. However, both my daughter and I had diarrhoea after dinner - don’t know what it was that we ate, maybe the karaage chicken? But we still enjoyed our anniversary dinner and will definitely come back again.

Really good overall. The only challenging thing was that the courtyard (where we were seated) was a bit cold. This was addressed when the team provided blankets, which were great. However, it would have been ideal for the courtyard to be warm from the beginning.
