    The Asian Fusion is perfect. We had delicious bowls with rice, crack salad, pork in one, chicken in the other, and poached eggs. The bowls were large, beautiful and scrumptious. we shared a basque burnt cheese cake, tasting well carmelized and creamy. It came with rhubarb compote and is worth its own trip. Service is professional, friendly, knowledgable and at lunch there was no attempt to push drinks. However, an earlier trip showed that the fresh fruit juice cocktails are just great. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is spotless, comfortable, well ventilated, acrylic separations are at every place, and Covid Masking is in effect.

    Good food. Disappointing that the bartender doesn't work until 3pm. Service is slow but to be fair, she was the only server and we weren't in a rush. Best Beef Noodle Soup ever. All the food was very tasty.

    Here with a group of 5 on vacation. Ordered the kaiseki menu and it was fantastic. Had the ahi, potatoes, and lamb for the main courses. Delicious. Appetizers were great - kale salad was perfect. Desserts were enough for more than 5 of us. Cocktails all great too.

    I have ordered take out from Torafuku before, but it was my first dining experience. It was a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food has always been delicious, but this time I enjoyed a few of their cocktails and I was not disappointed. I would definitely go here again and would recommend it to others as well.

    Food was great, server was great and vibe was great too. The seating was tight at the long table which both my friend and I felt constraint. We are 6ft and 6ft + tall guys. The only reason I marked down on the value was because we were debating between omakase special $65/pp and a la carte and realized it’s actually cheaper when we order a la carte and get to choose what we want. End up around $59/pp + tax and tip (5 appy 2 main & shared among 3 of us) and it was filling. Conclusion: its worth going again, this time I might put our height on the special note for special seating accommodation 😂.

    The food was disappointing to be honest. Many dishes were over salted and the duck had no flavour. The tiramisu was also very dry. It has potential but overall not good value for the money and wouldn’t recommend.

    Playing a top 40 playlist while enjoying a omakase really takes away from the dining experience. Food &amp; drinks were very hit or miss. We loved 80% of what we had but the dr suns penicillin was not balanced &amp; the duck dish was incomplete, desperately needing a sauce on both the protein &amp; the slaw. Please reconsider the sharing “plates”. Unbelievably hard to eat food off of &amp; unpractical. The menu online needs clarified verbiage as it’s very confusing to understand which dishes to choose from. I don’t mean to sound harsh because everything else was enjoyable &amp; tasty but there were obvious problems from the guests side that could be prevented by putting yourself in the room for dinner

    I have a seafood allergy so always choose menu items carefully. I ordered broccolini and asparagus and it was covered in sauce and sprinkled with what looked like shaved fish (no mention of this on the menu). I asked the waiter if it contained seafood and he said it did contain a lot of fish, in the sauce. However, he made no offer to change my order. And they should have asked if there were any allergies if they intend to put fish on a vegetable dish. The chicken wings were excellent, but the cornbread was heavy and greasy.

    Simple ingredients, well executed & great seasonnings on the vegetables & rice! Loved the twist with the brussel sprouts & Broccoli! The rice was also very tasty & i was very happy with my mocktail with yuzu (floral, a bit acidic & not too sweet)!

    Absolutely splendid meal. We arrived early and were immediately accommodated. Chose the tasting menu, and some cocktails to start..very well executed and understated. Every course was well balanced and complimentary. All of the mains sounded very good, but we went with the brisket and we’re not disappointed. Still thinking about it a day later. Finally, the basque cheesecake was the perfect compliment to finish. I can’t recall enjoying cheesecake as much as that. Thank you for the knockout of a meal! We will be recommending this establishment whole heartedly from now on.

The service was great (very friendly and helpful), the food was delicious and the cocktails were so unique and tasty. They had enough options for me (a vegetarian) as well. We look forward to going back and would definitely recommend a lunch or dinner here!
