    We dined upstairs and it felt like 1:1 service. Brilliant. Tuna sashimi, teriyaki chicken and oysters to name a few. Delicious. Quiet gem away from the rain and noise outside.

    The Hanabishi Course Signature Course was excellent and gave us a unique tasting experience. Chef’s Selection and Salmon Sashimi added to the meal were great.

    (Translated by Google) The quality of the Sushi & Sashimi is really exceptional and also the attention is from 1st. It's not cheap but it's worth it if you want quality of attention and food (Original) Realmente excepcional la calidad del Sushi & Sashimi y además la atención es de 1era. No es barato pero vale la pena si querés calidad de atención y comida

  • 5Haibo C. 1 year ago
    One of the best Japanese restaurants I've been to especially the quality of the food which is actually worth the slightly higher price tag. Imo the only thing holding this restaurant back is the fit-out which could be a lot better.

    Overall experience 11/10. You get what you pay for. Pay good money and the food and service is reflective of this.

  • 5Nick H. 2 years ago
    Excellent food and service. You get what you pay for. We had a good selection of their menu and everyone was very happy with their meal. Would definitely go back.

    5 star service, venue and food. Probably the best Japanese I’ve gone to in many years. We were very impressed. They are popular, so either come early at 6.30pm or make a booking.

  • 5Jesse M. 2 years ago
    Excellent! That's all I can say! The service was prompt and quick and the food was top quality. It has to be my new favorite restaurant for Japanese cusine. I had the Hana Matsuri Lunch Box with some of the freshest Sashimi I have ever had. Highly recommended !!

  • 5Sophia K. 2 years ago
    Delicious and delicate dishes! I love this restaurant. Both the foods and customer service are exceptional. Highly recommended !

  • 5Kelvin S. 2 years ago
    Some of the best authentic Japanese cuisine in Melbourne and reasonably priced.

  • 5Maegajn E. 1 year ago
    This is definitely a place worth trying! The staff are so warm and super friendly - they really go out of their way to make you comfortable. The Sushi and Sashimi Platter is definitely the way to go as you can taste so many different things and it’s still really affordable. The servings sizes are quite big so make sure to have an appetite when coming! The whole ambience of this place is great for dinner with some friends or even your work mates. Overall, 10/10 and I would most certainly recommend!

  • 5Mr K. 1 year ago
    Some of the best japanese I have ever had the joy of eating served in a tasteful venue by attentive staff. If i could rate higher than 5 stars I would, the spicy tuna roll was genius will return to sample more of the comprehensive menu.

  • 5alberto a. 1 year ago
    Best sushi I ever had! Definitely a place to try

  • 5Lee Raymond C. 1 year ago
    The first dish hasn't even arrived and I'll give it a 4 star. It's the atmosphere, the setting, a complementary braised meatball as starter. I'll definitely edit with more comments. Edit: it's now over. We ordered a regular size sashimi and sushi platter, AUD43, it's probably not the freshest I've eaten but it's good. Totally worth the money. A teriyaki chicken, AUD23, excellent. A soba with tempura, also very good - the portion of soba filled me up well. Upgraded to 5 stars.

    Delicious traditional japanese food. The absolute highlight is the salt kiln barramundi (traditional japanese dish that most people have no idea about!!!)

  • 5William R. 1 year ago

    Our go-to Japanese restaurant for special occasions. We visited again for their Valentine's day set menu. Lovely presentation, great taste and good service. Price is on expensive side but it's worth it.

  • 4Jessica Y. 2 years ago
    Very nice Japanese food indeed. Good vegetarian options and everything is very fresh. Miso soup is great and I'm pretty sure they make their own wasabi. But the cheapest but very good food. Would give 4.5 stars if possible.

  • 4Jacinth H. 3 years ago
    Good Japanese food. Nicely presented, most of the time fresh. Went many times and ever only had one slightly old fish. Otherwise they always serve exceptionally fresh fish. A pity it doesn't open on weekends. Customer service is great.

  • 4Kathryn S. 1 year ago
    Excellent food beautifully presented.
