“Classic Japanese Tenpanyaki restaurant, the food quality is second to none, personal favorite is their special menu comes with a whole lobster tale and a chunk piece of Japanese Wagyu steak. The cooking process there is like a show, awesome place to hang out with a group of mates and it's family/kids friendly too.”
