We both enjoyed the Salmon Teriyaki Don. Good fresh food, good service and reasonable prices. The place is hidden away on the second floor.

We had two meals here - one lunch and one dinner. Lunch was a true Japanese lunch set with some great dumplings. Dinner was a varied set of dishes, Sushi mi, more dumplings, bento boxes and more. They also have warm Sake, and a good variety of beers wand wines, and of course more Sake.

They were nice enough to accommodate our group of 14 and moved 2 other reserved bookings from the japanese style sitting area, however service was really slow - slow to order as well as to bring out the food, most of our group had already finished eating by the time the last meal (coincidentally mine) was served.

After a tip from the Japanese receptionist of our hotel we went on an endeavor to find this fine restaurant. It was well hidden in a small arcade, luckily some local Chinese people were able to help us as it is located on a floor above a very well known Chinese restaurant. As we came in early we were fortunate... More
