We visited Yumei for a pre-theatre lunch. I wish we hadn't. The team serving, whilst polite were a little clueless, especially about gluten free. The pictures in the menu bore absolutely no resemblance to the meals that arrived. I have never experienced gyoza quite like it and do not care to ever again. The karaage chicken came with a mustard... More

Food is lovely although I object to being told I will be charged $0.50 for usign EFTPOS (this is not a CREDIT Card) just because they want to encourage a cash business.

Second visit for lunch. Service was a little slow this time round and the restaurant was almost empty. Lots of meal options which were nice. Would have no hesitation returning.

We went there before going to the theatre. The food was pretty quick. The service was excellent in seeing to our needs. The menu was in large pictures as well as words which was very helpful, although we pretty much knew what we wanted. The presentation was superb. Just the right amount of wasabi and pickled ginger for the dish... More

Tried this Japanese restaurant at Capitol square. We had sashimi, mix tempura and Kaarage ramen with tonkatsu soup. Unfortunately their ramen lacks of flavour and their mix tempura, the batter was not airy as supposed to be. The prawn tempura was fishy and not fresh.

Excellent bento box and oysters. Great service. I tried the Bishonen hot sake. Most enjoyable on a cold evening. Each part of the meal was well balanced, fresh and tasty. Service was faultless.

Found this restaurant early (around 6pm) before we saw Aladdin next door at 8pm. Had a great family meal for 4 which came to just under $75 (including wine). The service was prompt and the staff very friendly (there are little call buttons on your table that you press if you need anything). It's a great little restaurant for a... More
