We’ve eaten here on a couple of occasions now - both times truly delicious! Although I’m a lover of sushi (something they don’t do here) I haven’t felt like I’ve missed out at all. Some really interesting and tasty dishes. The soft shell crab bun,...More

Thanks for your review Gemma and for self-verifying with your booking reference. As you say, sushi’s great, but the Japanese eat plenty else! Just as Italians don’t all just eat pizza and pasta! We look forward to seeing you again. Koj

Poor service by a supercilious waitress in an over heated uncomfortable room. The food was moderately interesting, but for a group of four the portions were very small , heavy on mayonnaise and exceptionally poor value for money.More

I've been here before for lunch, but in the evening it turns it up a notch. Flavour and attention to detail, rather than large portion sizes, are the focus here. The steamed buns are sticky, tasty goodness. Choose between lamb, pork or cod - I...More
