Not for a quiet dinner! But the quality of food more than makes up for it. A delightful treat! Smoked salmon nigiri was the highlight of what already was pretty marvellous dinner!

Beautiful Japanese tapas restaurant. You can choose from tapas style, small dishes or main courses and we tried them all and they were delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly service so definitely recommend for a date night or big group dining. Don’t be afraid to try sake ice cream it is delicious!

Food was sooo nice! Waitress was lovely, recommenced the right amount of food and we were able to cancel dishes once we were full. We were sat in a bit of a tight squeeze table right next to the till but the ambience was still good regardless

Food was delicious and different Japanese than I am used to having. Street food tapas style, however there are mains as well. I ordered tapas and my family had mains. All was delicious. The only change I would make is the decor, but we ate at dusk so maybe at night time it is more ambient. Overall, I would recommend...I am fussy about dining as I am a corporate traveler for many years.

Dined here before a show at the Brighton Dome. The service was fantastic very attentive but we didn't feel like they were hurrying us. The food was delicious, it was nice to just order a few random things and give it a go.

Awesome restaurant. Apart from the food, which is so delicious, the best thing about this restaurant is the staff who are welcoming, friendly and attentive. The flavours on the robata dishes are just beautiful. If you haven't tried out this place yet you are missing out!

We arrived and were seated at the high top they said our table was just getting cleaned and waited 45 mins at which point I got a phone call saying we had missed our table I said we were here waiting . We ordered 6 items and it took over two hours to finally get everything . It was just dredful and I’m so sad as I love it there but this time was awful

Good food and not too expensive - really nice to be able to pick lots of little dishes and share between us. The tacos and gyozas were really good. The other plates we ordered were lovely and cooked well, but seemed to lack a little flavour and didn't stand out, so on the whole, I was perhaps a little disappointed given the rave reviews. But, we might have ordered the wrong sort of thing. The service and drinks were excellent.

Delicious food and gorgeous restaurant. It was a Saturday night so a little noisy and we were sat near a rowdy table which was a shame but not enough to spoil our evening. Would definitely go back for a special occasion.

Went on Valentine's day, the service was great, with 2 free themed glasses of Prosecco. Music might be too loud for the some. Food was amazing and the Sake I tried was very good. In addition, they took a polaroid picture of us at the end to take home. Further comments would be that the venue was decorated very well (see the toilet lol) and very clean. Definitely coming back.

Great welcome with a complimentary drink on arrival. Service overall was informal but friendly and good on the whole. The food was a little off the mark. The large plate that we ordered was fantastic and really tasty, but the smaller plates were lacking the puchy flavour I was expecting. The drinks were good and the staff really made an effort. I’d go back but would order differently.

Very nice food in a cool restaurant but it took forever for our food to arrive after we ordered. The main took well over an hour and we were a bit fed up in the end. The staff were very apologetic and offered free sake and a desert but we wanted food earlier on, not more booze. With Bincho over the road, which is an excellent restaurant, it’s hard to see how this restaurant will last longer term unless they sort out this issue
