I love Japanese food and have gone through the list of Japanese restaurants in the town and this has now jumped to first place. Heading out to Partick is more of a trek for me but it's one I'll gladly make to eat here again. Firstly it is simply but tastefully decorated. We were sharing a bench with another couple but we felt as though we weren't really because of the layout of the seats so you don't feel as though you are squashed up together. The staff were first class and we had our 3 year old with us and she explained that we could have anything off of the lunch time mains for him and it would be a children's portion and would be charged at £4.80. Absolute fine with me as the little one loves chicken katsu curry. Between the 3 of us we ordered three chicken katsu curries, a chicken satay starter, chicken kushiyaki, and chicken tempura. Everything was superb, every single dish was first class but a special shout out has to go to the chicken tempura. We asked for everything to come at the one time and this came last after a slight wait which was fine as we were tucking in to the rest of the food and when it came out - wow! Great size portion for us all to share and we were wondering how we were going to fit it all in after scoffing the rest of the wonderful food but when we started eating it it was just so light that we wolfed it down without too much effort. Light and crispy, it was full of flavour and not the least bit greasy. The only thing we did was instead of using the tempura dipping sauce we used the teriyaki sauce that came with the kushiyaki as that was our preference. Honestly can't fault either the food or the staff. If you're in the city centre just jump on the train to Partick and give this gem a go, you won't be disappointed.

Great food and great service! Man at the front desk was very welcoming and very friendly. Wonderful Japanese cuisine and great lunch deals. Great price for what you get and a large choice for the lunch time and pre theatre meal.
Both myself and my boyfriend loved it and intend to visit again very soon!

As the title says! Best in Glasgow by a county mile. Always fresh, quick and the staff are second to none. The manager is a really nice guy, highly recommend! I take friends and family here.

Just spent £46 on takeaway here. We have been getting takeaway from here for around 5 years a few times a year. It used to be great but last two visits coupled with tonight's horror show means we will be going elsewhere from now on. Ordered the yasai yakisoba and it had three 1 inch square pieces of pork in it. How can that be allowed to happen? Tempura was also poor this time. 7 bits and all courgette or mushroom. No sweet potato and no aubergine. What a waste of time and money. So disappointing. Sorry but won't be back again.

The 2 course lunch menu is good value. The tables are of a communal type where you can share the long tables with others. The dishes came out at different times so not everyone ate at the same time. The starters were generally good , chicken teriyaki, veg spring roll and Japanese fried dumplings. The mains were a let down the Katsu curry was bland .I have had much better at Yen. There is a good selection of teas and iced teas.

Hey Joanne, first, thank you for taking the time to write a review of our establishment, all feedback is appreciated. We're very glad that you liked the starters, and sorry that the Katsu was not to your taste. As one of our most popular dishes, we haven't seen any complaints about it so far, so thanks for bringing it to our attention. Hope you have a fantastic weekend :)
