We go here at least once a month and have never had a bad experience, excellent sushi & super friendly service.

The yellowtail and scallops are must haves!

Great sushi with quality sushi grade fish. We had wakame, mixed sushi (chef’s selection), dragon roll, rainbow roll, salmon roll and mochi. Everything was great, well presented and the service was warm and attentive.

Fantastic food. Only one star marked down for ambiance as we ate at 6pm so very quiet atmosphere. Best Sashimi ever had from a non-Japanese restaurant!

Amazing meal, great service. Lovely to watch and talk to the team there. Quality of the food was superb and very authentic having travelled in Japan extensively and visited sushi restaurants across the globe. Exceeded every expectation!

This was my first time going out for sushi and it did not disappoint! Our server was very attentive and friendly, the menu had a great range of options but not too many so that it would throw you off. The food came in really good time, bonus points too as it was all delicious! I have to say the salmon nigiri was a personal highlight, incredible! Would go again, and would also recommend (:

Took my 18 month year old along with me for sushi and we were looked after brilliantly. No high chair in restaurant so we took our own and they made us very comfortable. Food was delicious and presentation was fantastic.

I took my family here for my girls 16th although I don't eat sushi my girls absolutely loved the food and the service was fabulous. The prices seem high at first but when you see the quality you don't mind the cost. We will definitely be back and can't reccomend this place enough...
