Family went for lunch follow the review and top 10 restaurant in Canberra and book the seats but reached here very quite and customers only allow sit in the certain seats area. The waitress is good but food is so so. The curry chicken is fried chicken heated up topping with curry source. The sashimi does not even has salmon fish. Smell the restaurant with strange paint. Maybe the course food taste better.

Lilotang operating in the Realm / Burbury precinct of Canberra's Barton is a restaurant that I have visited several times. The food is of high class and the pick has been the degustation which demonstrates a number fo their key dishes.
Food quality is high and presentation very good. Staff response mixed. Booked early for a special table and the staff were a little perplexed on arrival as to where to seat, so not that special...i.e. good evening 'x' your table is here, but rather ...'umm how about over here'! And, the tables can be close so not an intimate dining experience. Some staff explained the degustation courses well others required prompting.
Be careful of the sparking water...mixed requirements for table water and the smallest was a litre of sparking! Minor details aside a great Japanese food experience,

Superb food, impeccable service and pleasant atmosphere make this place a delightful venue for that special dinner. We would recommend the Banquet for 2 at $65 per head.

This restaurant came highly recommended by family who had attended earlier this year and had a great experience.

We were visiting from Melbourne and decided to make a booking for 7:15 on Saturday night. Due to a medical emergency we had to call last minutre and see if we could postpone the booking to later in the evening. The staff member we spoke to was very sympathetic and understanding and put our mind at ease in a highly stressful situation.

We arrived at 8:30 and enjoyed a fantastic meal! I have traveled all over Japan from Osaka to Fujisan and would have this dining experience up there with one of the best. The restaurant is clean and modern and the menu and drinks list are ‘exciting’.

I would also like to make a huge shout out to the waiter ‘Hong Kong’ Zack who really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great dining experience. He was very friendly and helpful and made our night.

We will defiantly be back next time we visit Canberra and will recommend your great establishment to family and friends.

Thank you!
