First thing to order, Okinawa beer! Really special taste if you prefer light beer and easy to eat with foods.

Personally, I think the restaurant is slightly more Japanese on the menu, instead of Korean dishes; but it is totally worth to try. The dinning atmosphere is pretty relax and enjoyable if you have many friends; or family for a good chat and enjoying Asian cuisine.

Loved it. Taking the man to new Asian experiences is always tough, but no drama with food, presentation, quality or price. Tempura prawns, fab konkatsu and pleasant vibe made for a great night

This place used to be upstairs on the corner of lake and spence in a very nice looking restaurant. The japanese was alittle pricey but tasty and delicious. It was a place to come on a special occasion and feel fancy. We had some lovely birthday and valentines day dinners there where the staff even supplied flowers on valentines day. Since it moved i feel like its not as fancy. They have changed the menu quite a bit and added more korean meals. They have smaller more affordable dishes which is good but it just doesn't feel as nice anymore. The restaurants look is rather average now also. I guess its a more affordable location for them now but you can get tastier japanese food in a better location down the road so we don't really go here anymore.

Wonderful central location in a restored Queensland building, with plenty of room between tables and private dining areas.
Food is genuine Korean and Japanese and presentation is superb.
Excellent friendly service.
