Dan, Mr T and I recently decided to have the vegetarian banquet at Iku recently. Everything was vegan except for the dessert so we subsisted juice for it. It consisted of:

Miso Soup
Seaweed Salad

Silken Tofu, This was probably the most boring, it consisted of cold silken tofu with spring onions, garlic and chilli on top. It sat on a small amount of soy sauce. It was quite bland.

My fav: vegetable gyoza
mushroom and eggplant skewers with a miso sauce (served with rice)
and inari and sushi

Apart from the tofu, it was all tasty but I'm not sure if it was worth the $25 it costs. Mr T complained that he didn't feel full whereas Dan and I were full. Although looking at the menu it looks like we didn't get one dish: Sushi rice ball wrapped in sweet bean curd. Still it makes a good alternative for eating out on Sydney rd and was fun to eat one one of the low tables that have extra room for your legs below. Next time I might order from the regular menu.

It all looks pretty good, I think. Especially those dumplings--yum.

isn't inari the same thing as/name for a "sushi rice ball wrapped in bean curd"? :p
