Very fresh and authentic.

Absolutely amazing tasting sushi. Lovely service. Restaurant is modest but the food is outstanding. Normally visit Sticks'n'Sushi in Wimbledon but this is much fresher and tastier. Would highly recommend.

Moved a few minutes walk a few months ago so was really excited to try makiyaki. Visited this evening and loved the food, however for the amount spent on food the night was so ruined by the lack of care for us by the staff and the atmosphere. We arrived after 9 and it closes 10.30 according to the door... More

Can't fault this place, the food is excellent and the service too. Fantastic selection of sushi washed down with some warm saki.

I used to go there at least once week as it was literally across the road from my house, either for dinner or to grab some rolls for take away lunch. Never disappointed! Quality, every time, regardless of the order, and people who work there are the loveliest, especially the manager(?) - older gentleman. Now as am sadly too far... More

I've been coming here for a few years now. I was recommended this place by a friend of mine who lives near by. I cannot put into words how much I love the maki. It's so unique and tastes delicious every time. The quality has always been consistently good. I only ever get the maki when I visit. I drive... More

Food is as good as always. Despite being Saturday night food waiting time was never too long. Waiters were very polite. And ocean is a must every time.

We've been going to Makiyaki for years, after being tipped off by an acquaintance who is a restaurant reviewer. It used to be fairly local, but despite moving further and further away, it's the place we return to most often. It's got the point that I can't even suggest the idea to my partner unless I really mean it (I... More

Found this place as a bigger chain was booked and was really impressed! The food was great and reasonably priced, service was quick and friendly, so, all in all, well worth a visit.

Just discovered it, and this Japanese restaurant instantly became one of our local favourites. Its décor is very calm, service is polite and attentive, only downsides would be that there is no parking right in front but it's possible to park on any side streets, and that it's closed Sundays. As for the food, amazingly good: fresh ingredients, subtle flavours,... More

Often come here for a child free lunch on a Friday. Love the sushi, there is a wide selection, and the lunchtime special bento box. We have never booked in advance as usually tables available. Decent Pinot Grigio. Staff always welcoming.
