They were struggling with few and new staff so the service will no doubt improve. The food and the ambience were great and as we were catching up for a birthday that was the main thing for us. We will certainly go back.

There was a couple of more traditional Japanese dishes which we missed as the menu has become more Asian fusion than Japanese. Still amazing food and service, but noted seems more expensive now.

Enjoyed the good service, however we needed more help with the menu choices to ensure that we best enjoyed the food. The noise from the neighbouring bar was intrusive at times. Quality of the food was good, but we may have enjoyed it more with better informed choices. Service was attentive and discreet.

Karraage chicken was chewy due to perhaps microwaving it. Ramen needed to be hotter. Beer was great. Pork in ramen was perfectly cooked. Everything was overpriced. $20 for luke warm ramen noodles is too expensive. Chicken needs to be cooked fresh for the price. Otherwise good.

Took 45 minutes to get our food . And we were placed on a table with unvomfortable chairs to wait for such a long time. Enjoyed the food, but got back ache. if you keep your customers waiting make sure they are comfortable..
