Ambience: Cold, sterile and not at all Japanese. Upstairs in a darkly lit long room with mirrors along one wall. Dark grey chairs and walls white linen table cloths and serviettes. Good quality cutlery and crockery.
Service: Although only looking after two tables - 11 patrons in all, our waiter struggled to provide for us reasonably efficiently. Explanations of the difference between the $50, $70 and $90 meals did little to explain the price differentials
Food; Profoundly disappointing. There was very little about it to distinguish it as Japanese. We had the Regal menu described as 5 courses which amounted to 11 tastes.
Wine: There were about half a dozen white and red wines on their list nothing over about $40 but no Saki! I did enjoy the Pinot Gris ($30) served cold
Price: Poor value
Comments: Perhaps their greatest virtue is that all the food is Gluten and Fructose free At the end of the meal most of us were still hungry.
