Food was spectacular as always! Never fails to deliver. Everything was delicious and felt really safe amongst covid restrictions. Looking forward to being back again soon!

Amazing staff, amazing food. The roasted pork belly was amazing but my favourite is the Katifi prawns!

Took over 20mins to take our drinks orders. It was busy but if the waitress is that overrun then hire more staff. Had to ask twice for the extra wine I ordered. No soy sauce given with food and had to ask and wait for soy sauce before starting the food. I even saw another table walk to the bar to ask for Soy sauce.
Apart from that the food is decent and the waitress was friendly.

Food lovely, service was slow, and the restaurant was rammed. Very hard to avoid close contact with other people - dividers were up but not around our table - it was not safe.

This was our first visit and I definitely will be returning. We had the black cod tempura, the lobster volcano roll, the dynamite beef and the dessert platter for two. I can't fault a single one of the dishes, all very beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Staff were lovely and helpful. If you like japanese food /sushi, I'd highly recommend giving this place a go.

nice food and cocktails were a highlight. Very helpful server who did his best to accommodate nut and sesame allergies. Enjoyable dinner, but table only available for 90mins so we had no time for dessert. Will be back!

Absolutely love this place and just glad we fitted in a vist pre lockdown. The food is out of this world - and it is consistently so, just the same as previous visits - and the cocktails are incredible. Lovely staff, super swift service even though it was as packed as covid rules would allow (very careful spacing and screens between tables). Back again as soon as we're allowed.

Outstanding service - table was allocated for 1.5 hours, but allowed us to stay longer, whilst providing an exceptionally swift and efficient service. A real gem of a restaurant, getting better by the day! Thank you to all the staff, hang in there, we’ll be back!!

The food was delicious as always and the service was fantastic. My only concerns were covid related. I felt that there were too many people in the restaurant and they had at least 5 tables arrive for an 8.30 slot which meant we were all queuing outside.

We booked a table at 8.45 but were made to wait outside for 25 minutes which was disappointing so the experience with reception wasn't great. I had to remind them and that meant we had under hour to have dinner which was of course rushed. Food was great and service very friendly so will be coming back.
