    Our experience was amazing. The service was attentive and very nice with us. Our food came quick and pippin hot. We were 4 and we shared 2 trays of sushi. Then we had 2 ramen and 2 "from the wok" dishes. We ordered dessert although I shouldn't have because I was very full. Overall the experience was amazing and we will definitely be back soon.

    Food was very tasty albeit maybe a little on the expensive side (£6 for 2 onigiri), but that might be due to the cost of living/inflation etc. Service was fantastic, the servers were all really quick to take our orders and clean up; food also came out really fast. Biggest issue for me was that it was quite noisy. Someone was sweeping the floor when I got there so there was just this constant sound of chairs scraping across the floor, plus the background music was a tiny bit too loud and jus meant everyone had to talk loudly, which contributed to the overall noise, but that's just my potentially hypersensitive opinion. Would definitely go back next time I'm in the bay

    We were seated immediately and staff were efficient and friendly. Food was delivered quickly and was truly outstanding. There is an incredible choice and prices are reasonable. Also excellent location, central cardiff Bay.

    Always brilliant and fresh food. Caters for lots of differing tastes in my opinion. I still miss the Ahi Poke
