“Plentiful and Delicious”


Our chef, Pete was very good. Just the right amount of humour and fun. We enjoyed watching him prepare all the courses. The food here is plentiful and delicious. Everyone in our group left completely satisfied. The different meats, vegetables, rice, soup and salad were all delicious. The quality of food and service is outstanding here. Great value for the price.

“Exceeded My Expectations!”


Exceeded my expectations. Went last night for my first time with a small group. I really really was impressed with the decor, the quality of the food, and loved the entertainment. Our entertainer/cook made me feel really special as a first-timer, involved me in some tricks and ensured I was well-fed. My steak was done perfectly, and the Sake-bombs were an added bonus of fun. Really engaging and I’ll definitely be back!


“An Incredible Experience”


Fantastic experience!. I’ve been there several times and I have never been disappointed! The last time I went the chef really fed off the energy of the group and did some sake bombs with us! I had so much fun catching the rice (although I did kind of spill it on one of my friends lunching to catch it!) and my husband enjoyed showing off his catching skills with an egg… until we told him it was hard boiled!

This is an incredible experience and I definitely suggest it! Go hungry!
