Fantastic takeaway food - perfectly delicious! Fresh and plentiful!

The food here is fresh, the sashimi thick and the sushi delectable. The service is given with a smile and while it may not be the cheapest sushi in town, its certainly the best that we have tried! Be sure not to head tot eh wrong restaurant though in Sevendials to collect the takeaway order... read more

If anyone has any problems or concerns with the takeaway please don't let them go silently into the wind. Businesses don't check review sites every moment. Feel free to inform the manager or write a letter and just be polite. People react positively to polite people. Who knows, your actions may improve your next visit. What have you to lose.... More

I love Japan, and that very much includes the food...going to the country actually spoiled having Japanese food anywhere else. Then I discovered this place, absolutely great !!! Bento boxes, chicken katsu, gyoza. I tried it all, and it was not only good but surprisingly close to what I've sampled in Japan. For special occasions though, as the prices aren't... More

This little place is full of surprises, great food, really tasty menu and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The service was a little bit slow but it was worth the wait!

We come here around once a month and have never been disappointed. Hearty, healthy delicious Japanese food at really reasonable prices all served with a smile in a place with a fantastic atmosphere. Maybe not the most authentic Japanese food if you're a real purist, but perfect for a meal with friends or a casual date. Ikageso is a must!

Apparently under new ownership although I didn't know this when I went. Same good food, all looks the same inside. Only difference I can think of was there were different staff from my last visit. If you hear the same thing don't be put off, all the food was excellent still.

Visited Brighton for the weekend & went to this restaurant based on a recommendation. We weren't disappointed; the food was delicious, fresh & well-priced, with tasty sushi & other Japanese tapas-style delights. There was also a good selection of larger main courses but we didn't get to try those as filled up on everything else! The restaurant was busy, with... More

I've visited this place a few times and really like it. The lunchtime menu is good value. I love the crispy tofu katsu curry and the sushi and sashimi - which seem very fresh and a cut above other places I have been. Having said that, I wasn't greatly taken with the tempura which I found a bit heavy and... More

Really lovely, fresh Japanese food. The service was great, well priced. Would highly recommend. Shame the parking is so expensive but that's not their fault ;)

Only been once before at lunchtime and it was good but no atmosphere as empty, so decided to try it in the evening. I was very disappointed as I had ordered the Katsu curry and when it came it was just deep fried chicken with a little different sauce, no rice and salad and pickles or curry! I was then... More
