Really cool and chilled place for a dinner. They have a wide variety of dishes, the ones we had met our expectations. The staff was really friendly. I would only expand the drinks menu, but other than that it was pretty great.

The fish was really fresh. High quality. Our only criticism is that we thought the rolls and the sushi tacos were a little bland.

The staff were so wonderful - super accomodating, helpful and patient. The food was amazing and a particular stand out for me was the table itself: it was the best seat in the house, fab lighting and really good noise levels. A little bit expensive but totally worth it x

Lovely atmosphere, would be ideal for dates (sit upstairs)! The sushi and sashimi was fresh, we also really enjoyed the seared kingfish, gyozas and ocean roll - the ocean roll was a bit small in comparison to other places I've tried. Their portions weren't the biggest but not too bad. It is a tiny bit more expensive than your average sushi trains/local jap restaurants but overall they are trying for that 'next level up' experience. Service was good, they were busy so was hard to get the attention of waiters at times but overall were helpful and friendly.

This restaurant never fails to impress. The food is always very fresh and creatively present. The wine list is quiet extensive and reasonably priced. The service is well above average. A great night out.

Great little cosy Japanese place - food is comforting and simple Japanese style, with typical classic items such as sushi, sashimi, donburi, gyoza etc. It's fantastic value for money, good Japanese beers offered too.

Was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. it's got a great atmosphere and excellent meals. I highly recommend the sushi and Sashimi Taco. Just a minor downside on cleanliness of tables, shelves and things, but wasn't much of a bother, unless you're a clean freak.

Took a chance since there was not very many reviews (2 before me!)...but the menu looked good...
Got there when they opened for dinner and was seated immediately upstairs...ordered the sashimi tacos (very good), prawn gyoza (very good) to start. The wagyu roll which was awesome and the wagyu strips...wow....amazing...so good we went back the next night!
