The food is all reasonably priced and there is a range of dishes to choose from, catering particularly well for the takeaway clientele with meals already boxed up on the counter ready to grab in a hurry. Mum and I ordered a selection to share - roasted eel on rice, $15; salmon don, $15; chicken katsu (large), $14; prawn curry (large) $14; four fried dumplings, $5; edamame beans (young soy beans), $3.50; chicken teriyaki, $8; and a seaweed salad, $4. We were hungry. Mum and I had never tried eel before and were shocked at how tender and flavoursome it was. The seaweed salad was a refreshing, cleansing side dish and extremely tasty. We could not fault any of the dishes. They were brought out quickly, cooked perfectly and portion sizes were adequate. Our only criticism was how they were served to us. I would have expected the dishes to be served on plates. The majority
was brought out in takeaway bowls. I also thought they needed a self-serving water option somewhere or a bottle or jug of water with glasses. We asked for water and we got cardboard cups filled with water brought to us.

The lack of water was the only let-down (though there was a fridge to purchase drinks).
