Such a lucky find - the staff is attentive and friendly, definitely an outstanding service, and the food is amazing, with various choices that move away from your average sushi restaurant. Definitely going back.

Really overpriced for what you get. The hot stone is pretty gimmicky, and the wagyu beef wasn’t worth 50 pounds. Even the rolls were really expensive compared to other places. And we left hungry ...

Very special food, the fish was really fresh and tasty, we tried the prawns tempura and I think it was the best I ever had in my life, and it was so nice cooking the beef in the hot stone just in front of us... very friendly staff, they really treat as well, I will suggest this place to friends. We will definitely back

Customer service is out of this world, food is amazing. Rock shrimp tempura is (by far) the best in London. Will be starting a petition to get it back on the menu. Top, top quality date night

The food is very good but the portions are tiny and, even worse, the waiting time for everything we ordered was ridiculously long. Overall this restaurant offers very poor value for money.

Over expectation on the dinner. This is not a traditional japanese hot stone restaurant and we are pretty disappointed. I am from Ishigaki,Japan and I feel bad as the food quality and price are not fair.

Food was superb and the sushi selection was a work of art. Having friends visiting London and this was definitely a brand new experience. The hot stones were “AWESOME” and the waiter’s knowledge of sake was tip-top. Steaks were enjoyed by the meat-eaters and sushi was much loved too. We were sent some rib eye inserts of sirloin which was a lovely touch but the one star for value was only for the price of the wagyu. We wanted to have it but it was way out of reach. Will be back!

Great service, delicious food and very interesting choice of maki! This time we didn't get any hot stone meals but we'll definitely come back for that (as it looked stunning on other tables!)
The service was outstanding, very professional and the staff's attention to details was (positively) surprising for London standards.
Expect your clothes to smell a bit afterwards (I mean, it's a hot stone restaurant, right).
All in all we had a great time! I do recommend this restaurant and will be back!

I saw seated at the bar to start off with which not acceptable for a date. I asked to be moved which eventually happened.
You should state on your bookings if you have no tables available.

Good food. Overpriced. Horrible wine. Overpriced. Clothes saturated with grease and smoke on departure. Cooking staff so noisy could not have conversation with mate. Bar horribly uncomfortable: seats too close, don’t swivel.

The food was incredible and such good value for money. The service was excellent and we were greeted by a very warm welcome upon arrival. This is very highly recommended. X

Fun for a date as the staff make a huge fuss on entry. Maitre d was v helpful with our suitcases. Chefs were happy to chat about the food and ingredients. The bar chairs were fixed to the floor and so it was a bit cramped, and drinks service was a bit slow and erratic and it is a bit over-priced but overall very good fun, good food and v friendly
