The restaurant is a very casual dining restaurant, with some tables inside the restaurant and others lined up in the arcade, out the front of the restaurant. The decor is very basic with a few posters on the wall and some Japanese decorations along the counter. What the restaurant lacks in decor, they make up in tasty Japanese food at a reasonable price.

I walked past the restaurant around 6pm and it was packed full of Japanese tourists. I went back at 7pm and got a table and ordered up the chicken teriyaki which comes with a bowl of rice and miso soup. It took longer than I expected for the food to come out, probably around 20 minutes but it was delicious!

The restaurant can be accessed either by Orchid Avenue or Surfers Paradise Boulevard. The restaurant is only 2 minutes walk from the Hilton Hotel Surfers Paradise. The restaurant is tucked away right in the middle of the arcade. There is no sign at the front of the arcade to alert you to their presence, but plenty of people seem to have found this restaurant and come back for the excellent Japanese food.
