Food was lovely, lots of choice. Service a little bit slow but it was a match day so to be expected. Overall would definitely come back

sushi was revolting, clearly off. got very sick from it, put me off my ramen and buns were meant to be steamed. hard as nails, could use the bun as a hammer. usually adore this place but never coming back. after the sushi was brought up to staff they took it away and we clearly heard them say it was off. they came back and told us it wasn’t, as if we don’t know what off sushi smells like. waitress was rude after complaining, not our fault i got terribly sick from the sushi.

We go here very often and usually absolutely love it here. The service was awful this time. We were celebrating a birthday and I had added this to the information when booking, not that I wanted anything special but I would’ve definitely liked better service. The food we ordered came all in a random order - the main dish with no sides, then the starters, then the sides by themselves - I wondered if this was just me being picky but looked around and saw everyone around me having there meal in the correct order, which obviously made us feel worse. We were also missing one of the starters we ordered, I asked three separate servers three times if they could help, they didn’t seem do to anything to solve this, until eventually a server came over with the receipt and pointed at it to say I hadn’t ordered that, so I had to tell her that I definitely did as I always order the same starter and again did nothing to improve the situation. Then after all our disappointment we waited for ages for the bill to arrive, weren’t asked if we wanted any drinks just sat with a completely empty table for ages. The serve came over eventually and asked if we had been served yet, even though we had been sitting there a while and were waiting to leave. I’m just really disappointed as this is one of my old favourites but they seem to have got it all wrong this time.

First time I visited this restaurant it was lovely, good food, quick service and nice ambience. I made the mistake of visiting on a match day, and the shortage of staff made the service extremely slow. However the main issue with the visit was the face I was served raw meat not once but twice. I ordered the pork yakitori, took one bite, before realising it was completely pink through. The outside was burnt, so I can only suspect they cooked this pork from frozen. After sending this dish back I received no replacement for it. I then waited 20 minutes for my second dish, the chicken Katsu, which was also completely pink in the middle. I sent this dish back and was offered no other substitute or replacement dish. I ate nothing but steamed rice. When the bill came, these undercooked dishes had been left on, alongside an additional dish which I had been told they couldn’t supply. It took a surprising amount of hassle to get these taken off the bill. I felt bad for the staff, as they were obviously stressed, overworked and underprepared to deal with this situation. But it couldn’t have been handled worse. Definitely avoid this restaurant on match days.

Really enjoyed the great food but wasn’t available some we chose from the menu. Soju and some food.
Also didn’t get noticed it was booked for a birthday meal.

Unfortunately Kevin and Arran have left the restaurant and the service was very poor - they were just letting people in despite the fact tat they clearly didn't have the staff to service the tables or the kitchen to provide the food in a timely manner - it took over 45 minutes to get our first course which was not as hot as it should have been - such a shame as this was one of my favourite restaurants because it has such an extensive menu at very reasonable prices

Reasonable food in a fairly nice setting. Staff were nice but service a little slow at times. No lobster available, the dish we had travelled for.

Starters and mains couldn't be faulted, but the desserts took 40 minutes to come out without any explanation (clearly forgot about our order)

The chocolate fudge cake was not only dry and had the texture of a sponge you'd use to wash dishes, but was neither chocolate or fudge.

The blueberry cheesecake wasn't blueberry at all and tasted like a frozen, supermarket bought item.

Service was slow, poorly communicated and disjointed. We were served by no less than 3 separate waiting staff who seemed to all stumble over one another. We'd ordered from here online before and thought we'd try it out in the flesh.

We won't be returning, it's a decent takeaway but fails as a restaurant. Stick to ordering from home honestly, I feel sorry for the chefs, great hot food let down by poor waiting staff and second thought desserts.

Booked a table for Sunday evening, we arrived a bit early but the staff was fine with that and very friendly and polite. We were served quickly with pipping hot and delicious food. I recommend the takoyaki for starter as they are the best I ever had. The door leading to the garden was open and one member of staff asked us if we wanted to have it shut as it was rainy and windy outside. I would definitely book again and recommend to anyone who love Korean and Japanese food, they have a very good selection.

Been to Soho several times before and always amazing food and service, not sure what went wrong this visit but service slow and I had to send food back, it was so tough I could not easy it, I reordered and the second choice was OK. I was also charged for the food I could not eat, when highlighted it was removed of the bill.

Overall a disappointing visit this time..... Not sure if I'll be back

Had booked weeks ago for 8:00. Got there and table was not ready. Took us downstairs and gave us a drinks menu. We ordered Margaritas but they had no Cointreau. Another couple came after us who had also booked for 8:00. They complained. So they got the first available table at 8:30. We decided to leave. Quite disappointing

Really poor experience. Food all tasted the same, 3 of our party were ill afterwards. Food served at different times. For 5 people, a starter, a main & 2 beers was £40 per person. Expensive for a disappointing meal. Wouldn’t recommend or return.
