Mains came out before entree’s. The burgers were really salty and dry.
Presentation was fantastic, food came out really quick.

We had a lovely experience and will highly recommend. I think the only reason I did not give 5 stars is for the menu, I thought it would have had more of a Japanese flair. and perhaps a little more to offer other than burgers and rice bowls. We had a lovely work christmas function.
Drinks are divine.

Service was terrible, not once did staff approach our table to take orders, had to get up and ask for assistance from staff who weren't being attentive to waiting on tables. Drinks took over 20 minutes. There was only one person at the bar making drinks for the entire restaurant, it was clear he couldn't keep up with orders coming through. Food was unremarkable, the deep fried food tasted like something you could purchase at a local take away. The one positive menu item was the jackfruit pizza which was quite tasty and well made

Amazing burgers and fries! That beef patty is top notch, please don't change it. Definitely worth a visit. Indoor and balcony seating. Difficult parking at the lonsdale location, but worth to try. Very friendly service too!

Great burgers and fries. A good place to get a great freshly made burger. Seating inside and out. Heaters and temporary cover has been added to the outdoor seating. If at Braddon, definitely worth stopping by for lunch.

Fabulous restaurant at Braddon. Choice of eating inside, outside or, for special occasions, in the Yaki Boi. Great range of food and drink options. Staff were very attentive and food was freshly prepared and delivered to the table quickly. The food was fantastic with generally large serving sizes. Well with visiting.

Been here previously, forgot how loud it can get indoors, if your ok with a bar like atmosphere and good food come here! I think the Choice In pizza was not ok the peri peri sauce was a tad bland, needed a little more spice and sweetness to it, the rest of the meal was great! Burgers and sides are the thing to get unless the other pizza toppings are any better stick with sides and burgers.

Food is confused. Indian style dumpling with Japanese contents. Miso soup from a packet. Sashimi butchered on a plate.
Expected more.

Really nice bar on the corner in Braddon.
Drinks and food are well priced.
The bar does get crowded on Friday and Saturday evening, but they deserve it!
