The staff are lovely and the food is very good however for the small portions you get it appears very overpriced.
I took my wife for our anniversary and between us we had
6 Black cod rolls
100g Steak with a side of Spinach
Mochi and Cheesecake for dessert
2 x Gin and tonics
The bill inc service was £227.35 in vat
On price only would not go again

Loved the food and the service. The chef is very friendly and makes an effort to come to the table and check if all is ok. Love that it has fresh Wasabi. Quality of food is very good.

Amazing food. The food never fails to surprise me. Great service and great atmosphere. Overall, a really good experience. Every dish we ordered was absolutely amazing. It was worth every penny of my money. The XXXL king prawns were actually XXXL, the eel sushi with creme cheese practically just melted in my mouth, and even the pickled vegetables was good. If OpenTable will let me post pictures, I shall. 10/10 - do visit.

I was actually happy to see some bonsai trees & little wasabi plant. I've never seen it before, really liked the subtle details here and there.

The food was delicious, I've never eaten makirolls that are that delicious anywhere!!! 9 chapel roll a slightly on the spicy side was bomb, flavours just explodes in your mouth. Also I had wagyu with goma roll, chef said the sauce is homemade no wonder the sauces were of whole another level. The wagyu roll (classic of hotstone and reccomended) was on the pricier side however the meat itself is a premium product so it makes sense & is absolutely worthy of the price. Chef made it right in front of me and it was a treat to see the process. Not to mention how energetic and happy the head chef is. Being a solo diner he was very accomodating and didn't make me feel alone at all.

Hot Stone was a great experience for me. I was there for wagyus mostly so I ordered the Japanese one, it just melts in your mouth and was perfect with a bowl of rice & soy. I see a lot of complaints about the price and portion and am actually really shocked at people's expectations. Try buying it online and you will see it's impossible, let alone the same grade.

People need to be realistic and stop comparing prices to that of yosushi & wasabi. You cannot have premium items, top service and everything else nice for £20. I am so glad to have found this little gem in Angel and will be back soon with my friends and share kobe. Thank you chef for such a memorable night.

It was nice to have the hot stone experience, I do left with smelly hair and clothes though cos of the smoke so make sure your coats are hung up in cloak room! :)
Portions are extremely small though and I do find it a bit pricey, the Kobe and A5 are expensive and expected but I thought something fascinating with the avocado as it’s £17 as a main/hot dish, but it was very disappointing with only half of an avocado.... not worth £17.
The service was only okay, they forgot our drinks a few times and took wrong food order (even he repeated back to us and it was correct!)....there are so many serving staffs in a relatively small restaurant but feel very disorganised and keep bumping into each other....

We were having a really lovely time and enjoying the food which we had spent A LOT of money on. The waiter was very nice and helpful. We then finished our food and were completely ignored, nothing else offered to us and then we were told to leave as they needed our table. I know tables are reserved for two hours only but we had only been there for an hour and a half. It was a massive disappointment especially as we’d spent £120 on ONE dish. The menu is also really limited for vegetarians and vegans.

A wonderful,hidden little gem of a restaurant off the Old Chapel Market in Angel. The wagyu was out of this world, as was all else on the menu that we tried along with the house Lychee cocktail. I would definitely recommend and will be coming back ~ compliments to the Chef and all the friendly staff.

Fabulous! Very highly recommended, excellent menu and best sushi in London in our opinion. The overall quality of the ingredients and preparations is sky high. The wagyu platter for the hot stone and the fatty tuna roll with truffle and caviar were out of this world. We loved the warm welcome from the chef and the kitchen staff, the attentive and friendly service and the unpretentious setting. We'll definitely be 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

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!

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.

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
