We booked in and it wasn't a particularly busy night, there were a few empty tables. They took our order and, after about three quarters of an hour when we noticed people coming in after us getting served, we asked where our food was. They had lost our order so we had to give it again. When it finally arrived... More

Lush food and good services although the prices keep going up and up!!! Still an empty plate at each visit and I do tend to order different things each time I go. Highly recommended.

I always find the Sushi here to be really good, but its the venue I have a problem with...its a bit 'sticky floor' if you're ok with that then go just for the food.

We love coming here for the food. It's really handy to visit solo too for a quick lunch. Nearly as fast as McDonald's but far better and FRESH! The lunchtime special bento meals are great.
