Yummy with a Smile

If you are after service with a smile, not too formal and a relaxed environment then don't look further. For the price.....better than London Japanese restaurants at that level. Thank you for a great evening!

On the hottest day of the year, we were attracted to the fab. location next to the Theatre Royal, an outdoor area with trees above us and a lovely cool breeze. The service was polite but amateurish, and the food when it arrived was bordering on unpleasant. Strangely enough, we ate there in May during the Brighton Festival and had... More

We had a very enjoyable evening dining with our university student daughter. Wonderful food with probably the best sushi we have experienced, along with very pleasant & helpful staff. Can't wait for a return visit !

My wife and I went there for an easy Japanese night out. We had some cocktails up stairs first which were not great. The alcohol measures were clearer on the lean side. We had a meal there also which was ok at best. The food tasted nice but the place lacked atmosphere plus plus. We felt it was over priced... More

Over-priced food which is mediocre at best - staff come over as arrogant & unhelpful. Potentially could be much better due to a great location.

I come here quite a lot and enjoy it every time. the choice is perfect and the people there are only too happy to advise on what to choose if you are stuck. The ginger cheese cake is to die for! while the portion sizes are not huge you don't need big portions here as you don't do home hungry.... More

This restaurant needs a bit of paint and TLC. The staff were polite but lacking in a little warmth. Although the food was a reasonable quality, the portions were tiny. The whole experience was all right but a little disappointing.

My boyfriend and I visited the bar here on the bank holiday weekend. We had a lovely day in Brighton and thought we would end our trip with some cocktails at Oki-nami. When we arrived a waitress told us that it was table service and she would be with us shortly to take our order. Around 20 mins passed before... More
