authentic japanese super happy food time

I've been walking past this place for years and always wondered what it was like, last night finally got the nerve to give it a go after the other Japanese restaurant in Albert Road was fully booked. Walked in and there was just one other couple there, felt like an intrepid explorer. The waiter was... read more

Although the food is good, it's tasty and very nice, delivery took nearly 2hrs. I has to phone them 4/5 times to see where the food was, the first time, 5 mins away, the second time driver has delivered, obviously not or I wouldn't be phoning, when it did finally arrive, no apology from the driver or discount for waiting...

I have been there many times with my friends and family for various occasions. I didn't enjoy it at all. Was there only because my daughter loves Japanese food. The food was too sweet and too heavy for me . I am not convinced that was was even fresh. The restaurant always was empty. The hygiene of tables was acceptable... More

I'm a regular takeaway customer but won't be using them again after finding a black hair in a sushi roll this evening. The meat used for the tempura chicken was also decidedly grey.

The setting and atmosphere of this place really dont do it justice, if you dont mind a tired interior and very quiet atmosphere (we were the only people there when we dined in) then eat in, if not phone up and take your order home and enjoy it at a nice casual pace, they also deliver which is a bonus....

I was a bit disappointed honestly, I had better sushi before, it is too bad they don't have any competitors in the area really. I went for a takeaway twice and tried different things but they kept me waiting ages, did not even apologize, no towels or wasabi in the bag, no chopsticks either....would not recommend it! My partner went... More

My wife and I have been eating here since they opened. The sushi is the best ever, the value for money is very good. Only place that has sushi close to this John Dory's in South Africa. Last visit we tried the buffet which you cook yourself it is fun and very tasty. My mum is 74 and we took... More
