We've been here about 50 times over the years. The sushi is always cracking, much better than most comparable establishments! The service can be a bit weak / rushed / hard to get on members days but it's all good given the atmosphere and worth it for the prices. The (what I assume is owner) is a little on the... More

Well this was a big surprise. We went with friends on a tuesday, food was half price and tit was fantastic. We could not believe it. Was a locals offer I think. But at full price it was still a steal because the team were lovely and the place is stunning

I have been visiting this restaurant for a several years. On few occasions I had to send food back, glass with lipstick on or ask for the table to be clean properly. After my last visit I simply have enough. The staff seems to have no clue whats going on in their sections. I specifically ask for miso soup to... More

Ridiculously good value on Monday/Tuesday if you become a member (£12/yr). Love the kale crisps, salty and delicious. Seem to have a push on responsibly sourcing fish so how they can do that and keep it reasonably priced is amazing. A few more beers on the menu wouldn't go amiss.

I hadn't been here in three years since it was Moshi Moshi so I was eager to try the sushi. It was delicious ! I seriously love Japenese food and that can get expensive but with the Monday deal it was very reasonable. There could have been more of a choice on the conveyor belt but the staff were really...

Visited this place following an advice from our friends who had been there a few years back. Both me and my boyfriend were very disappointed in the sushi - it was all pre-made and not fresh. I asked for some hosomaki and was told they had ran out of them (not the ingredients but the actually sushi; no idea why... More

Used to be the best sushi place. I think it is the worse now.. Last 2 times, fish was not fresh and had a bad smell. Going downhill fast. So sad.

My records show that I ate at the restaurant that day, and that I was satisfied that our sushi was as it should be. For a restaurant that prides itself on its fish, and which has a very high turnover of customers (with fish deliveries six days a week), this is - frankly - an outrageous accusation.
