With Kagaya closed we weren't sure at first where we would get our Japanese hit in Hurstville any more. However, I remembered a while ago I did try Kazuki and so suggested that we revisit this hole in the wall Japanese restaurant for dinner.
The place was pretty full on Friday night but we managed to get a table. The menu was basic and I'm not really sure the chefs are Japanese, but overall the dishes were OK.
Service was a bit slow and they would do well if they could put on a few more workers during busy periods - especially as they seemed to get a lot of takeaway orders at the same time. We ordered our dishes and there was a bit of a long wait before our dishes arrived.
Kaarage chicken bento - $14- A cue of agadashi tofu, five pieces of golden fried kaarage, three thin slices of salmon with three edamame, a roll of vegetarian sushi and some tempura. Each component was decent but nothing ground breaking here. Not sure if it was worth the wait.
Beef ramen - $12 - A watery soup base and a mound of thinly slice beef. A pretty plain ramen and though there was nothing terribly wrong with it, it also wasn't particularly enjoyable.
A pale substitute for our previous go-to Japanese in Hurstville. Not sure we would go here again. Ken's in Bexley North or Sushi Hiro in Beverly Hills would be much preferred.
