So tasty. Pretty cheap too as far as i can tell. Try the green tea beer :) We had the sushi/sashimi platter between two, and i could have had more to be honest, but it was great, and the staff were lovely See less

Would give it 0 stars for the terrible service. Was seated smoothly but was in the restaurant for over 20 mins without any form of service, no table water and not even one glance from the waiters. We were looking at the waiters trying to make eye contact to order but no luck. Did spot the male waiter chewing gum while taking another tables order. We simply had to leave. Can’t comment on the food we didn’t have, but I have never received worser service than what Nagomi served up, just Appalling. Possibly understaffed... but they could’ve at least tried. See less

First of all the food: possibly some of the best Japanese food i have eaten, me and my friends really enjoyed the verity and the flavours were 5 stars. The restaurant is a really nice little place, clean, comfy and pleasant to be in. Not too crowded. The only complaint is the service, the front of house staff were friendly but did not seem well trained or confident. They were not rude, just not very attentive. We were unsure if we should head to the front to order or if they would come by. When we ordered drinks they would leave as we were just about to ask to order food. 2.5 stars for a rating. They were very friendly as i said but may need better training. Overall this place is a hidden gem, and a small improvement in say service training would make this an easy 5☆☆☆☆☆ because the food was a breakout star. Hopefully they take this as constructive, because like i said staff lovely but maybe need a little more training. Highly recommend! See less

Friendly and efficient service, and the food was fantastic as well. The sushi & sashimi boat was excellent, especially the sashimi scallop. See less

We went to this restaurant with excitement last night as there had been so many positive things said about this place. It turned out that people weren’t critical enough and it wouldn’t help this place to move forward and it would be lucky if they wouldn’t move backwards. Their manager didn’t bother and care about your customers’ dining experience and food quality at all, even though you complained, complained and complained to their two staff members. My friend said I should only gave one star to this place, but I would still give two stars as there were dishes which should still had merits in them. The overall experience was completely ruined after having two raw oysters on our sushi platter with my friend. The oysters were not fresh at all and tasted fishy, bitter and even slightly stinky. By the time we noticed, it was too late to spit them out. I was then concerned for last night what if I got food poisoning. It was just intolerable to have stale oysters on a sushi platter that was worth 36 dollars at such a premium place, and the price we paid were enough to buy good 1.5 dozens of oysters on the market. The Aburi sushi was also a shock as how a Japanese restaurant could possibly overcooked rice or just added too much water into the rice during cooking. As a result, the rice grains in the sushi were glued together and were quite chewy and the texture were close to glutinous rice ball without good acidity in it. The rice grains in the sushi should have been just stuck together but still be distinguishable as individual grains and you can feel the little bounce between your teeth when you chew through the rice. Btw, they also burnt the rice in the aburi sushi (see photo for the black rice grains). I did enjoy the other components on the sushi platter (salmon, salmon belly, yellow fin tuna and scallops), although their varieties were less than Wasai in Chinatown. Their kingfish cheek was also delicious and full of umami and the meat was just tender and soaked in the delicious sweet soy sauce. Beef tataki (tenderloin) was definitely a star as the meat was tender infused with earthy (and grassy) aromas and tastes. The pickled onions in Beef tataki were impressively prepared as it smoothed out the pungency of red onions but it somehow helped to balance out the richness of a beef dish and made the dish more palatable. Their chawanmushi was such a classic Japanese dish that you could taste the egg, mirin, dashi and seafood - complex flavors in one tiny pot. Tempura (veggies and prawns) was nothing special but also nothing wrong with it. I will still come back to this restaurant to try their other dishes but definitely not their sushi and oysters in particular. This place does have some interesting elements (e.g.: homestyle Japanese dishes, contemporary Japanese dishes) that will bring me back. I probably will be able to have a full review of their dishes at some point in the future. See less

Staff were friendly, food was great, the meats were all seasoned and cooked well... but service was lacking after a certain point during the night (it was not busy either, only maybe 3/4 other tables). We asked for water to be refilled which never came, and when we finished our drinks - empties were never taken away/ we were never asked if we wanted another round. They have a light system where you leave it on green if you’re still hungry and the food is meant to keep coming (red to stop). We were not told that after we have been served “last round” that the food doesn’t keep coming and that we have to ask staff to bring out more. So we waited, and waited... for 20mins wondering why all the servers were ignoring our table, till we decided to ask before we were told this... by this time food had settled in our stomachs and we could only really order 2 more rounds. So no, not all you can eat when you’re left waiting. See less

Best Japanese restaurant in Adelaide by far, the food has always been tasty and always visually set out perfectly, the restaurant interior has always been tidy, well maintained, and hygienic. Lastly have always had very attentive service from the staff throughout the years I've been here, 10/10. P.S try the Chicken Katsu Curry :) See less

Pranzo is a bit of an institution and I love it. Anna and Aaron are delightful hosts and their team are on point. I go there often, and I mean very often. Mostly just for coffee which is some of the best in the city and not often enough for lunch or breakfast. The food is modern Italian and is fantastical tasty and generous and so yummy! My favourite place in the city by far. Good for business meetings, relaxing lunch, events, the lot really. See less

Very impressive, great value! Had the best time celebrating my sister's 40th today with high tea. Our waitress Lauren was welcoming and interacted with us well. We selected the standard package and there was an abundance of food, a good variety of sweet and savoury. Even the gluten free option was very impressive, and did not make me feel like I was missing out on anything. This even included a couple pastries! One downside was the gluten free bread. You can get really soft gluten free bread these days but this one was not enjoyable. Towards the end of our high tea we did feel a little 'forgotten'. No one came to ask how we enjoyed ourselves or anything that would generally be asked towards the end of a meal. Would definitely recommend however. Looking forward to visiting again sometime.
