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... read more

Last visit we tried the buffet which you cook yourself it is fun and very tasty. My mum is 74 and we took... More

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 very sweet and the lager... More

Worst. Sushi. Ever. In fact after eating the some of the expensive mixed nigiri and a couple of mouthfuls from the chicken Katsu teishoku. The meal left me unsatisfied with the taste and texture and the whole experience lacklustre, I felt duped. In fact I used the exact words. "That made me Sadface" and proceeded to feel regret. I would... More

I went here with a small group of friends for my first Japanese tasting experience. I had a Bento box which gave me a varied selection and I absolutely loved it. It was nice to try something different. The surface was very polite though a bit formal ...I guess what you might expect in a Japanese restaurant.
