This place can be summed up in two words, TEH BEST! Its fresh, quick and delicious every time. I work 5 mins walk from this place and I have nothing bad to say about it, it has character, great service and they sell imported quality Japanese bier. My favorite is either the pork katsudon or the karage chicken with rice/salad.... More

One of our favourite weekend quick lunch spots. Fresh, clean, quick and yum. Great value too. We love the bento boxes.

Easy relaxed Japanese food in southport really worth the visit. Not expensive but bring your own wine it's basically beer and Sake.

Loved the food, relaxed quirky atmosphere and good service. Went with the Bento boxes and would happily return. Tried the Japanese at Sea World Resort and Maruya was far superior.

We loved this place, the food is good and it feels like you are in a little restaurant in Japan. They have 500ml Asahi's which are perfect for sharing. The staff were friendly, the meals were bigger than we were expecting, and everything we had was delicious.

Have eaten here multiple times. It has always been great food and okay service, this last time was the worst service of the lot though. I just feel the waitresses where terrible took 30 minutes to get a drink let alone order food. Food is always delicious they need to work on staff!

My wife and I decided to visit this place after reading the good reviews on TA. We were not disappointed! From the moment I stepped through the front door, it reminded me of eating out in some of the awesome little places in Shibuya and Harajuku. The decor is awesome, with the walls lined with figurines of Japanese comic and... More
