The main waitress was very cold and borderline rude. The food was ok nothing special, the menu is extensive therefore perhaps hard to perfect in any. I had a few meals there but service seems deteriorated each time, hope it has not changed owners.

Really good food- chicken breast a bit dry but other than that pretty great night with friends. Waitresses could have been more attentive end of night trying to get our bill

Having dined here many times I can confirm that the food remains at the highest standard and freshly prepared. This is as close to dining in a fine small yakitori or isakaya in Osaka or Tokyo as you are likely to find in this country. I urge visitors to try the chargrilled kingfish head and the more "crossover" offerings liked the stuffed zucchini flowers. Highly recommended.

Such a great little Japanese fix in the middle of Haberfield! It honestly feels like you're walking into a Yakitori Bar in downtown Tokyo.

Excellent choice of food, really good flavours and portion sizes. Excellent value for money and great setting for a midweek date night. Try to avoid the seating at the back of the restaurant as this has a slight draft from the back door, however we asked to move and they accommodated straight away. Staff very friendly and attentive, service was quick and the dishes came out exactly as we had finished the previous course.

Overall very satisfied.

We were placed on the end of bar, so all waitresses would walk past when taking food/ drinks or when bringing back dirty dishes. A few times they either got my elbow or my stool. It was a little uncomfortable. The food was ok. Disappointing steak (a lot of fat and a bit chewy) and sashimi was cut as thick as a steak (although it was ok fresh). They need a guy to cut thy better. Same was great

By far the best Japanese in Sydney if not Australia.
Not only the food but the atmosphere within the restaurant are above and beyond.

Great night dining out with friends, though it was a very hot night and the aircon/fan could not cope. Food was great as always, esp the sashimi taco and miso kingfish.

Interesting, tasty food, that was served in a friendly and efficient way. The restaurant is small, cosy, and atmospheric - and quite inexpensive compared with the cost of a flight to Japan.

Without question one of the best Japanese restaurants, in this price range in Sydney. Reminds me of the great little izakaya bars in downtown Yokohama by the river. Perfectly cooked yakitori, attentive service, good portion sizes, and the Happy Hour serves rarer Japanese beers at only $5-6. A must if looking around the Inner-West - plus finding a carpark is much easier than, say Newtown or Glebe.

Nice food and good service, the place is really cramped and they gave us a really narrow seating area with tiny table to fit our food. They wouldn’t give us the big tables which were empty even after we left.

We love the food. But our seating position was awkward and the staff, while eager to please are not well trained. Our friends next today said they had upset tummies. We will return, just probably on a quiet night and without friends.
