Overall pretty good. Most of the dishes were tasty. The standouts for us were the pork belly Nagasaki slider, alfonsino (similar to Nazimi's toothfish or Sepia's miso cod - at the end of the day it's...white fish and miso) and momo yakitori. Butabara yakitori was good too. One of our friends said the gyoza was the best in Sydney, we're not sure if we'd go that far but at the same time don't have any thoughts on how it could be better.
Most disappointing dish was the John Dory and Tiger prawn dumpling. Weird, with weird crunchy bits that could have been prawn shells...not sure if they were meant to be in there.
Gooey chocolate and rhubarb was basically an undercooked fondant, nothing exciting.
Unfortunately couldn't try the sashimi and 62 degree eggs this trip.
