Yar, no it's not how a Swedish person says yes. It's a Japanese and Korean restaurant along Southbank near Crown Casino. We headed off to eat there before going to see Eason Chan in concert. Hence we needed a quick meal so we could get to the concert in time.

Here I am with my newly shaved head for charity.
Anytime I see a restaurant that lists two types of cuisine, such as Chinese/Vietnamese or Malaysian/Indian or Thai/Chinese, I'm already have bad feelings. These places are rarely any good. So when I saw this place listed as Japanese/Korean, I was feeling worried already.
I needn't have worried. The food here is actually quite good. The waitress actually sounded Korean so maybe the chef may be Korean who just happens to do some Japanese dishes as well.
We ordered a Beef Bulgogi and Beef Teriyaki. The Bulgogi was alright but the Teriyaki was surprisingly good. In fact, it's one of the best teriyakis that I've tried. It wasn't overly sweet and had a nice chargrilled flavour to the meat.
The sushi and sashimi platter was also fresher than I expected. Everything was nice, and not expensive either. I guess the restaurant wouldn't survive in the southbank area if it was really bad.
The Pork Leg with dipping sauce was nice too. But the plate was humungous. I only managed to finish half of it. In fact, all the dishes are huge here. I suggest ordering a bit less here to start and ordering more when needed.
Service was ok. It was fairly empty at that early time of the night. Hence, there were a lot of waitresses standing around ready to serve us. But when you didn't need them, they tended to be standing around. But just when you need a waiter, no one can be seen in any direction.
