I had lunch there with a couple of friends, and two of us ordered the bento box with sashimi. It was good, what you'd expect from a decent Japanese restaurant, minus the "wow" factor. I'll go back again if I come nearby.

This little place is amazing! The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and very much like the food I've eaten in Japan. The same bottles and decor took me back. Absolutely loved it !!

My partner and I had dinner here a few weeks ago after a show in the Comedy Theatre. Delicious food, and extremely friendly service. The atmosphere was very cozy and I would love to come back again sometime.

The food is superb and served with pride and the owner/waitress gives the friendliest and most efficient service in town. Small and very traditional in style, and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend it!

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
