The dragon rolls were perfect!
The sashimi was decent.
The cocktails were disappointing it seems a lot of places cant get mojitos right.

Salt and pepper squid was good!

Sea bream was surprisingly good but cost more than it should and it comes with nothing but 2 dips.

Sunday Live music right in my ear was too loud for us - others would enjoy it I dont doubt - a DJ playing and being augmented by a percussionist and a saxophonist Im not sure it was needed on a Sunday afternoon but it did not ruin our afternoon by any means at all - just personal preference

The sushi was mediocre. I would advise anyone looking to have some sushi to go elsewhere, as it is not worth the price at all. Places like sushi samba, robata or sticks and sushi are much more delicious. The rest of the food was alright.
Our waiter was very nice, but the rest of the staff had a “greater then” attitude, and made us feel unwelcome. I get it, no one likes working on a Sunday, but the minimum i would expect going to such an expensive restaurant is being treated with basic decency and respect.
The music is too damn loud. We couldn’t hear each-other speak. I know its their whole thing with the live music and all, but if you’re looking to have a conversation maybe consider going somewhere else.
Also, it was POURING outside and they kept their gigantic windows opened?? In a literal thunderstorm???
Definitely not returning.

I was really looking forward to dining at Sexy Fish but I was rather disappointed with the whole dining experience. Getting seated was very chaotic as nobody knew where we were to be sat, we ordered drinks first and food later, the food came before the drinks. The drinks weren’t as good as I had hoped and the food was rather disappointing, everything lacked flavour and were such small sizes for the price. I was rather disappointed with the whole experience. Though i will say the vibe and atmosphere were very good, the live music creates a very good atmosphere and we enjoyed that.

I wanted to hate it. I wanted for the food to be mediocre and the service poor. But it wasn’t. Service was excellent, food v good, and the atmosphere was unique. What I can’t forgive is the elitist, up itself, rules based approach it has. It has a dress code (which I thought went out in the 90’s??) and applies it with a haughty ‘we’re better than you’ attitude. I was turned away before for not living up to their ideals (I wore flip flops) so couldn’t make that mistake again. But the way I was looked up and down by the no less than 6 employees on the way in was disgusting and made me feel awkward and not welcome. Based on this and their absolutely incredibly overpriced wine list (500% markup) I won’t be back.

Terrible night and would never step foot in there again. Was not told we had to be off our table when we were seated or when I had a confirmation phone call the previous day- apparently this puts people off so they send an email that automatically goes to junk.
It took 30mins to get any drinks (apparently the millions of staff wandering around only do certain jobs which therefore involves either doing absolutely nothing or so over attentive you feel harassed.) When we finally ordered drinks (cocktails to celebrate and 2 bottles of incredibly over priced wine) the wine was poured before the cocktails had been drunk only to get warm in our glasses. When we tried to stop the wine being poured the waitress (clearly desperate for a job) said we could sip it until our other drinks arrived - Wine before cocktails doesn’t fit with fine dining. Food, which was delicious arrived in a rush, was served with hardly any time to swallow before more staff grabbed plates to clear. There was absolutely nothing relaxing about the meal and at the prices paid it would have been nice to have been made to feel valued customers particularly as I had notified we were there for a celebration on booking. We were further shocked to be told that we had been too long on our table and weren’t able to order coffee. We were then hassled out with our bill slammed on our table. When we said we would not pay the service charge as we hadn’t finished our meal they seemed shocked. A very expensive meal- fine if you are in a rush and want a quick plate (when they finally take your order!) but do not go if you want to celebrate, catch up with friends or have an evening with friends and be prepared for rude staff who are unfriendly, unhelpful and some just rude.

I was there for my birthday and totally loved the ambience and the vibe!
The service was very slow. To start with, we had to wait for 10 min to get our table even though I had booked way in advance.
Also:
1. it took more than 40 mins to get our drinks
2. As it was my birthday, we got a cake but they did not allow us to cut the cake inside (which is understandable as it is a restaurant policy). Thus we ordered a dessert as a substitute for cake in advance and requested for it to be served at midnight. But it was delayed and we got it 10 min late so I could not cut my birthday cake at midnight
3. We were asked to order food even though we did not intend to (we wanted to order only drinks). We were asked to order at least 2 dishes. This was not specified anywhere when we booked the table (maybe I missed it) - But I recommend to confirm this with the restaurant before visiting
