Chance upon this restaurant between Harry's & Barossa. As it was a Saturday night it was super busy. We were lucky to get a table outside near the entrance, eventhough they were full. It was 9ish at that time and many patrons was from the show i assume as I was from watching the show too.

It took a while for our orders to be taken as I guess there was only 3 staff working and they were everywhere doing many things. But when it was our turned to order, the lady was friendly and what amazed us is eventhough we had many request, as I could be very fussy at times, and it took sometime to be sent, she didnt forget. Not forgetting the 2 male staff who were friendly and approachable.

The menu has many different varieties, so we ordered a California Maki, Kinoko Salad, Garlic Fried Rice, Tori Karaage and Soft Shell Crab Maki.

To make our night better we got free beer since we are ticket holders, even though there was a condition that we had to spend minimum $15 per ticket for 1 free beer. But hey what is $15 when you could get a glass of beer worth $10.

The food did took some time to arrived but we were informed before hand. When the food arrived, it did pleased my taste buds and it was acceptable. Im in love with their Tori Karaage.Wonder what special recipe they use??

Anyway, overall I would definitely come back, service was great and it was definitely a night to remember.

Kudos to the team!!

I will NEVER return to this place

Extremely rude and unresponsive service staff. Literally had to walk up to the bar counter every time I needed something. And as if that's not good enough service for the VIP staff, one waiter who was there gave me a quick glance and turned away to chat with another staff behind the counter. I asked him for the bill and it never came. I walked to the bar counter again to ask for the bill and it was eventually plonked on my table and the staff walked off!

Having been there twice within a week spending about $150 each time, I feel shortchanged especially when service charge on each occasion would have amounted to $15. 

Consumers should stand and up for our rights and avoid restaurants with bad service.

Service Attitude needs to be improved

service standard could be improved. Took a long time to get the attention of the waiters/ waitresses. The attitude of the outdoor manager could certainly be looked into.
