There are quite few Japanese restaurants in this area. We decided to try it because of the line:). Choose your meal and size of serving from the large picture menu on the window. The lady at the counter will take your order which takes a couple of minutes to plate. They will give you a number if it needs more time to prepare. While waiting, you can choose other dishes on the self serve counter such as shrimp and vegetable tempura, takoyaki, tofu, fried dumplings. They also have cold dishes like salad, edamame, seaweed. No sushi or sashimi rolls here. After the check out counter, help yourself to tempura sauce, chili oil, garnishings, chopsticks, soup spoon and water. They have what they call the ghost chili oil, if you dare. Meal is delicious: soup broth light and tasty, grilled teriyaki chic my fave. Kids liked their salmon over Japanese rice, my husband liked the curry beef dish. Gyoza wrap steamed and browned yet stuffing is tender and juicy. Very casual decor-wooden tables and benches, g.i. roof sheets used on walls, for casual dining.
I could imagine it's a best place for the students to hang out after school. The food was considerably great at this price range. For nice and easy meals and there are a lot of food varieties. I love their jap noodle bowls with egg and beef on rice. I lived in the Meriton at Kent Street and this place is one of my favourite lunch places during my stay in Sydney.
We went there and got a mix from everything, so we have the Curry and a soup we got Teryaki Chicken and Beef, all with Rice. So maybe the Restaurant is more famous for soup but we want to try some more. So far everything was fresh made and the taste was good. Next time we will have a soup bowle, so we can say something more about the Restaurant.
