Cheap Japanese food, but monster servings
Tucked away on an intersection in Neutral Bay, this small restaurant feels like something you'd find in Japan with the Noren over the entrance (the fabric divider) and the small space within.

Banners fly out front, but it's still easy to miss this place.

A single row of tables lines the wall and as expected, a fortune cat is positioned by the cash register. Long benches are positioned back to back with the next table so there is little in the way of personal space, but the benches are wide enough to still offer a sense of comfort and privacy.

Opposite the row of tables is the bar with paper signs written with brushstrokes of kanji. These spell out the drinks that are available and on the opposite wall for each table is a screen display of the menu.

The first thing you'll notice about the menu is the price. Food here is cheap and the serving generous. A bowl of Udon with a few toppings is less than $10 and most other dishes fall into the $12-$15 range.

This monster is the Wagyu Sukiyaki Beef Udon - $16.80

Tokyo Udon - $8.80

The good thing about this place is entrees are only $3.90. So you can order a side of Gyoza or Karaage chicken and add in 3 pieces of Salmon Sashimi without feeling like you're over-spending.

The taste of the food is average, but for the price you'd be paying there's little to complain about. There are only a few options in way of desserts and this is probably recommended as a lunch place, but their sister restaurant Sushi Samurai is next door, so you can always get your dinner and dessert fix there.

Parking is available on the street and main road, but always check signage since rules may change depending on the time of day and which day of the week you're there.
