    Excellent Japanese food as always - they used to take a little more care with presentation and especially table ware (I hope they didn't get previous lovely items damaged or stolen - but also cups weren't clean, one was chipped)

    We were an overflow table therefore our table was upstairs in Tangs Dynasty.From outside in the whole building requires a good tidy up & a thorough clean .from overgrown plants to dirty tables , dirty glasees to a cluttered untidy reception / slash bar area. The restraunt is unsafe. Broken glass tiles are taped up.on the roof .bathroom has electric light pendants hanging through ceiling. Bathroom was disgusting. The food was outstanding 👌 and staff were impecable service was fantastic 👏. However health and safety would close this business down immediately.

    Excellent food... great service... maybe a bit slow..BUT this is NOT a McDonald's... if you approach the experience with a bit of Zen.. and a sip or two of saki... you will be fine!

    The service was excellent from the young guy who was on. Sadly for him he was the only one. He handled it amazingly and constantly smiling. But wow, if the boss doesn’t soon bring in more servers - or pay this guy a huge wage - they really should to save his sanity! Maybe it was staff sickness that day. Food was delicious if quite long waits for it. The place needs new signage to reflect the Japanese restaurant rather than Tangs. Overall enjoyed it.

    My Friend and I decided to visit Oshibori based on the fantastic reviews... we were not let down! On entry we were greeted with remarkable extravagant decor as birdsong played over the speaker. This made for a great setting to chat and relax. My friend and I both opted for the Pork Ramen and some hot Saki. The Ramen was served in a traditional bowl and beautifully presented. The flavours were fresh, authentic and delicious, the best Ramen we've both tasted. Our host was friendly, professional and really added to our overall experience. We can't wait to come back and try more of the menu... definitely a new favourite for us! 10/10

    Bit bizarre. Once we actually found the correct entrance, we were seated along with perhaps another 3 tables (all couples so not busy). However, it still took a very long time to receive our starter and quite a lengthy period between this and the main also. There was absolutely no atmosphere. No music on at all. The food was very good though and reasonably priced for what we had anyway, however I would say the bottles of wine were overpriced. They automatically add a ten percent gratuity onto your bill as well which probably isn’t well received from some customers. Probably wouldn’t go back unfortunately but glad to have given it a go.

    Ramens werent edible as the broth was far too salty. Had to drain it all and eat without. The staff was notified of it hence no corrections or any feedback from the kitchen after having been taken the food. Spent £90 and two bowls of ramen was total waste. Kids were fed of it by dipping in miso soup that came with sushi platter. Would have been great if at least we heard back about the food after taking it to kitchen. Shocked they just left it and billed us with it all.

    This could be SO much better. Dirty glasses and toilets, with decorations dried out and left on the floor. Crumbs everywhere too… The suishi was actually ok -but expensive when you consider the general lack of cleanliness and overall ambience. Will not return.

    Had a lovely meal here with my family.staff were very accommodating as we had to change our time twice due to last minute changes to our plans. Service was a little slow initially but the restaurant was full with only 2 staff serving so that's understandable. Staff were very nice and eager to please. Food was delicious

    Needs more staff and better cleaning standards. The drinking glasses weren’t clean. The floor was dirty. The soup was served in plastic bowl. Overall lots of scope of improvement. The food was okay but too pricey.

    Waited an hour for starters then another 35 minutes for our mains whilst a table that came in a while after us got served first and from the looks of it they had the same food as us! Wouldn’t recommend and would never go back! Way too overpriced for the service and experience!

    Easily some of the least flavorful sushi and worst cocktails we’ve ever had. The gyoza were deep fried. The patio was neglected, had trash in nooks and crannies, grass and bushes overgrown. The glasses not polished, floaters in the water pitcher, no or little ice in the cocktails, really basic bland cocktails for that matter. Certainly overpriced for most everything. If it weren’t for the fact that Dundee is already struggling for hospitality I’d say this restaurant should not exist. That said, we’ll never be going back. The only bright note was the kindness of the host/waiter. Certainly understaffed in every way and obviously an owner who just doesn’t care about quality control. Sorry but not sorry, it was quite an embarrassment of a “Japanese” restaurant.

    I made a reservation to celebrate my graduation and when I got to the restaurant they were closed. We were at the door waiting to see if they arrived and it did not happen. A total disappointment they couldn't even put up any signs in the restaurant or send an email to inform their customers. The same thing happened to other people.

    Booked a 'traditional' table for my wife's birthday. Arrived at the booking time of 12:30 to find the place locked and a member of staff unable to enter their place of employment. They were unable to reach the owners who live upstairs. We waited for 25 minutes before leaving. We've been here numerous times over the years when we holiday in Dundee as the food has always been exemplary, even though the service has always been slow but this was unacceptable. A quick maps search on iOS for sushi led us to a <1km walk to Su Shusi. The service here was very attentive, very fast and the food was fresh and delicious! Su Sushi are our new go to place for sushi in Dundee!!

    We have been there so many times and everything used to be perfect!!! This time unfortunatelly there were a few things that made the overal experience not so nice-at the start we sat on a table that looks like it was dirty as there was something sticky and greacy, one of the meals that we always order was covered this time in so much hot spice that it was hard to eat (never been served like that before), my coctail glass looked like was holded with greasy hands but i have not touched anything so i can assume it was just not washed properly, and the worst bit is that after my mam almost finished her drink we found some flies inside (i can assume they are form the ice or the glass was just not used for quite a long time). The staff were very apologetic and offered to us to cover our drinks because of this. Im sure this was just a one off experience and I do hope the next time everything will be again perffect :)

    The staff were great and when our food took a while to come they did apologise and ask if we needed anything. The food, however, was not as advertised. We ordered sushi bento, which said it came with tamago and nigiri sushi. There were neither. It also promised sweet shrimp but instead came with normal shrimp. There was mention on the menu of bento boxes coming with extras like gyoza and a slice of orange. We double checked with the waitress to find out whether these things would be included and she assured us they would. They weren't. Also the fish wasn't fresh. Sashimi should not taste fishy. That said, the maki sushi we did get was great and our side order of yakitori was spot on.

    Wonderful night out. Delicious food and large servings. The decor and ambience nice. Waiters very polite but service was slow (we waited 45 minutes before we got a glass of water and our wine). Seemed to have forgotten we were coming and although our table was free it wasn't ready for us and we had to sit at the bar not even being offered a drink till it was ready. That said once we got our food it was delicious and will definitely return.

    Terrible experience.. Compared to 2019 when the portions were decent size, beautiful presentation, lovely ambience... All that is gone. Tiny portions for the money, waited an hour for our sushi. No saki. Waitresses kept apologising about a backlog in the kitchen. No music. No atmosphere. Very disappointed. Will not be back unfortunately.

    Food was really delicious, but there were quite a few things missing from the menu unfortunately. Staff were polite but we were left unattended for a very long time which was disappointing, as the restaurant wasn't even busy at the time and we wanted a top up of wine and extra sushi. Venue is gorgeous and decorated beautifully. Soft Shell Crab Donburi bowl was the highlight - highly recommend!

    It’s hard to know where to start! This was the most bizarre experience. Initially we could not find an entrance. There were two other people before us also having trouble. We eventually made our way around the back of the premises to be greeted by what would have been a lovely beer garden, but it was all overgrown with weeds and neglect. There was an outside staircase again overgrown with a hedge, which we pushed aside and made our ascent. The outer door looked locked but we were surprised when it opened. The interior was dark and although there were people sitting at tables, we didn’t see any food being eaten. The young bartender was working solo and doing his best. Looking around, our impression was that the place was neglected, with empty boxes etc piled high in one of the windows. We didn’t feel comfortable and so cancelled our booking and left.
