Decided to try this place having finally been told about this, being a sushi lover and was impressed. Having never been to japan and experiences of sushi in America, London and yo sushi My experience is limited, however I have been back here several times and will continue to do so. It is much better than yo sushi and cheaper... More

I'm a regular as I love Japanese food. Whilst not perfect it never disappoints. I like the quiet atmosphere and attentive service.

Sorry to say but it was opened by a Japanese owner originally now it seems run by either Korean or Chinese people. Presentation is good but selection is poor although staff are always nice & helpful.

We have just had a sushi feast from Nara, this time to celebrate Christmas Eve. It was absolutely delicious, as usual, and we plan to continue this tradition each year because it was so good!

This is an amazing restaurant, if you love Japanese food! It's located opposite Tesco in Albert Road. The restaurant is normally half empty, with a quiet atmosphere, this is possibly due to its location, because its not in the hub of Albert Road. From the outside of the restaurant you can't really see into it that well, as there are... More

I have been here on several occasions and usually order the mixed bento box. This is one of the best choices on the menu as it has a variety of food items in one box. The selection is good and the food is delicious. The decor is nice but the atmosphere is quiet. We have also ordered take away delivery... More

A friend and I popped in for lunch and were not disappointed. Our bill was £20 for lunch for two, sharing 2 big Sushi selections (Maki Set & Rainbow Maki) and a Chicken Tempura. The restaurant was very quiet, but may be more lively in the evenings. Overall we were impressed with the food, portions and price compared to Yo-Sushi.... More

I've been here numerous times and I've always had a great meal here. The restaurant seems to be half-empty but this may be due to the location as it's not in the hub of Albert road. Food is fresh and delicious. Presentation of the makis are stunning and service is excellent. They also do deliveries for those moments when you... More

Unsatisfactory eat-in experience in terms of surroundings. Conveyor-belt, once a crowd-puller, no longer working. Deathly silent with no background music or atmosphere. Waitresses not Japanese and therefore unknowledgeable about various dishes on the menu- unable to answer queries about food allergies. Absolutely no ambience at all. The food was fine, so eat here if you're an aficionado of Japanese cuisine... More

I work all over the UK (and Europe), and I can honestly say this is the best I have been to - and that includes some that cost 3 times as much. Great choice, excellent made to order Sushi, tempura soft crab was fab, and udon to die for . Will be back very shortly
