Amazing food, and with 50% off in January, it's amazing value for money. I would definitely come here again for a special occasion even if the food wasn't 50% off. The food (sushi, tempura and tuna tartare) is definitely upscale and the service was good. Great food presentation as well.

Spent the evening here for my daughters 21st birthday chosing this restaurant from the many positive reviews. It was a great night made special by knowledgeable and attentive staff. The food was excellent and priced well to reflect the quality.
The staff were more than happy to explain the menu and recommend food ensuring we didn't over order or chose anything too spicy. Lovely evening which will remember for a long time.

Service was attentive.
Big open kitchen.

Been here several times for wonderful cocktails with friends. It was my first time eating. Wow the food was amazing. Quite a good price too. Has a very affordable lunch menue and has cocktail happy hour. We were served by the supervisor who spent time welcoming and chatting to us. Great atmosphere and we'll worth the visit
