An absolute Glasgow favourite. Exceptional food, interior on point, and luminous staff. Selected PG especially to celebrate my graduation as I knew it would not disappoint. This place is reliably brilliant and true to expectation, they really delivered.

Buzzy and fun. Delish food and good service for a group of 12 - well done.
There is a scheme during COP26 time to plant a tree for every £15 spent. It would have been great if, when we got the bill, there was a note to say how many trees that would be.

Food was in general quit good. The staff could have been a little more supportive of some of the dinners when asked for an explanation of the menu, perhaps suggesting what to have based on the dinners taste and portion size. Seating very small and tight for average height 5' 10" - 6' male dinners. Seating very basic and certainly not for sitting any longer than your meal. Overall could be better and I have been to better Japanese restaurants.

Good place to hang out and have quick eats. The sushi rice was a little on the harder side and seemed not as fresh as I have had in the past.

Overall a great experience. Food was amazing & staff very friendly. However I just found it very small… we were all packed in and felt a bit squashed!
Will definitely be back, yum yum chicken was to die for!

Absolutely fantastic grub.
Standouts were salmon ponzu, beef tataki, and gyoza. Tuna sashimi was soooo fresh and yummy and beef bulgogi was really tasty too.

You have to try the ice-cream mocchi! A revelation!

Service was brilliant and food came very quickly. One of my fave Japanese eateries in Glasgow and so handy for the SEC/Armadillo.

Will definitely be back soon. Thanks for a brilliant meal

Booked a table for 1945 and been seated at the bar as no table available which we accepted. At 2015 still no sign of even getting us a drink or asking the order - we decided to leave.

When we left a simple “goodbye” was not even on the cards that tells me they weren't interested in us at all.

Many times I been here pre-covid but will not put my money into this place anymore.

Many places places around Glasgow stepped up recently on similar food and customer service.

Hope you dont lose any more custom as over time this will cost you.

Go here at least once every month and never had an issue however on my most recent visit the service was very very slow, took over an hour to get sushi and then again for hot food after.

Food was very average - bizarre octopus balls with what tasted like bbq sauce with salad cream drizzled over it!!

We waited an hour and a half for our food as our order didn’t go through the system properly. They didn’t take anything off the bill either for waiting that long, it wasn’t even busy!

Some of the food was great. Some not so much. Service great. They try hard but really it’s a takeaway and there is an endless stream of delivery drivers coming in and out.

The food and the service were absolutely great. The only thing for me was the music. It was loud and so conversation was difficult. I am 53 though so ….
