Fresh sushi take ot

Lovely sushi that we ordered, you have to order a substantial amount to qualify for delivery (£15). We didn't try many other dishes as we were only really in the mood for Sushi but the sushi was not bad, not the best that I've ever had either, unfortunately. Good for the price

This used to be the best place for sushi in Southampton but I went in today 04/09/2015 and the place has been taken over by new managers and the old sushi chef (and previous owner) has left! They went serving any sushi today as they're recruiting a new chef. I had a duck lunchbox special with rice which was very... More

Fresh is best and old town always delivers tip top sushi. Made in front of you by owner and chef the quality and flavour of the sushi from old town is addictive. You don't get a large varied assortment of rolls and nigiri etc found in larger sushi chains, but they can not compete with the flavour and fresh tasting... More

I've eaten here regularly for the last few years and it's always been great. Freshly cooked and prepared and really tasty. Always a short wait, even when it's really busy. Love the mee goreng, chicken curry, satay and the sushi, of course. The staff really know what they're doing and I appreciate the no-nonsense approach-no style over substance here.

Visited during a Saturday shopping session, so much better than the standard Yo Sushi in West Quay. In terms of aesthetic, it's not great. But there's limited seating available to eat, which was fine. We ordered two of the pre-made boxes and spicy squid - everything was great. Good value for money, fresh and well presented.

A good friend of mine has more than once recommended getting lunch at Old Town. I regularly use Trip Advisor to get a very general feel for a restaurant and from reading the reviews about a potential chef with attitude, I couldn’t resist, so I decided to pop in for a lunch time snack. I initially ordered a Nasi Lemak,... More

When you first see the shop it doesn't look very appealing but we went ahead and ordered to try. We were surprised and taken aback to find the man who makes the food very very grumpy (and has been every time we've been there) but he is very good at what he does. Its like watching an artist, and it... More

This is only the 2nd time I have taken to trip advisor but felt i had to after this experience.

A friend recommended the food at this place so we thought we'd give it a try. I was a bit worried when i saw the dust and dirt all around the counter and the white phone was black with grease. The food was nice although a bit expensive but the entire place was filthy,We ate upstairs and you get plastic... More
