One of Katsura Japanese Restaurant's Favourite Reviews What's This?
If you need protein in your meal, you’ll need to grab something else as this was a very low-protein meal – almost 100% vegetables. Personally, my protein needs were fulfilled by an interesting take on creme brulee – sake brulee with miso-flavoured shavings on top. I am more than happy to forgo protein in a main if it means I can justify dessert! As with most Asian desserts, this was not super-sweet, and the umami flavour of the miso cut through the sugar coating of the genuinely sake-flavoured custard in a very nice way.
One final thing to mention is how beautiful the restaurant is – a very soothing environment, and it does not feel like a hotel restaurant at all.
I came for the 2 course lunch offer for $38, and my only complaint would be that it was too filling, as it was a huge amount of food for lunch for me! I think next time, I’ll just get a sashimi dish, as that would be plenty for me. Also, from reading the ad I saw on here, it seemed that they gave me more food than what was listed in the offer?! As it came with a main of beef (which I normally prefer not to eat red meat, but I made a pretty good dent in it), and salmon and beautifully tasty veges.
The entrée also came with a yummy ‘jumbo’ prawn, tempura style, and two succulent fat pieces of chicken teriyaki.
Plus a beer.
And a miso soup.
Did I mention I was very full after my meal?!
The surroundings were very peaceful, and being in a fancy hotel, everything was spick & span as you’d expect.
Kimono-clad waitresses were warm and helpful.
It’s a top-notch Japanese restaurant, and I think the stand out aspect for me, was the very high quality sashimi.
Other than that, not bad if you are staying at the Rendezvous hotel, and or get a discount voucher for the restaurant
The food was ridiculously overpriced and the helpings were very meagre. We each had the miso and salad , both in very small bowls,and an assortment of meat and seafood.One of us ordered the beef and only found out later that this wasn’t even available, after the waiter had taken the order for it !? We also had the dessert which was fruit salad from a can ….I am serious! For $50 this was not acceptable. We all felt like we had been robbed.
We should have complained at the time but had the impression all would have fallen on deaf ears.
