Delicious high quality sushi, nigiri was really fresh, we loved the creativity of the flavours of the Inside out rolls (California rolls).
Lovely experience, nice atmosphere in a cosy place.

Best sushi in Birmingham served with real care and attention to detail. The decor is basic as all the attention goes into service and the food. Five stars.

Absolutely incredible. The best sushi I’ve ever had. It was such a personal experience with the owner being so hospitable and open to talk. It was also fabulous to watch the head chef make the sushi and to know that the fish is of the highest quality.

Super cute little restaurant, we were sat at the counter which was great because we could see the chef prepare all the food, the bamboo seats were quite uncomfortable but not too much that it was an issue. There was one server the whole night and he was super attentive to us and everyone. The prices are fair because the quality of the food. Would definitely recommend

What a great find. Excellent food. The prawn and avocado sushi was to die for as was the soft shelled crab. Lots of interesting things on the menu that we will definitely be back to try. Great restaurant

Thrilled at finding this place - quite easily some of the best sushi I’ve ever had. Ingredients were fresh and delicious and having a bar seat was great as we got to see the chef at work.

It’s not the cheapest evening out but absolutely worth the money. The restaurant itself has a great ambience - it’s small and quiet with really lovely lighting and the service on the night was great!

If you like wine, they also have some great choices. Would definitely recommend visiting.
