Great first visit

Went on Father's day with kids (8 & 5 yrs olds) for their first sushi train experience. Kids loved it tho they were happy with simpler sushi plates and loved the Japanese dumplings. Service was good and we had a lovely meal. We will definitely return to try more dishes.

First trip here, as was at my sons request, not his first trip as he quiet enjoys it. I really can't put forth an enthusiastic review as nothing really impressed me or disappointed me. Starters were not served at the same time, allowing my wife's and mine to cool while waiting for our sons. All were alright if not memorable.... More

The restaurant is very modern inside and the service is excellent. There is a "Sushi train"in the centre, but we chose our own table and selected our meals from the huge selection of authentic Japanese delicacies. A good wine and beer menu also.

I visited this place for dinner twice with a couple of months between visits. When you come in it looks interesting because of the conveyor belt which constantly brings food around, so that's cute if you've never seen it before. At both visits we were seated at the sushi bar/conveyor belt. Somehow I enjoyed my first visit more than the... More

I had been curious about this place for years and finally went last night. We went for the three-course set menu, which wasn't all that cheap (I think they would do well to do two-course deals) but seemed to make sense considering the price of a lot of individual items on the menu. For starters my wife had teriyaki chicken... More

I have been several times to this restaurant because it also has vegetarian dishes, noodles with vegetables are delicious. Prices are fair but at lunch is cheaper. The staff should smile more.Overall good.

A group of 4 of us found our way to this restaurant, as we were staying at a near-by hotel. We didn't have a reservation, yet they were able to accommodate us immediately at the counter. The conveyor belt of sushi looked tasty, as each plate with color-coded by the price, as you could help yourself at any time during... More

Decent sushi for a decent price. Service was very fast, selection at sushi bar was limited in variety of different types of sushi to try, but it was still a nice clean place to eat.

Travelling through Belfast on holidays we came across this lovely restuarant for dinner. The service was very good, with several waiters and waitresses attending to us through the night. We got a table easily, and the restaurant had constant trade through the evening. A sushi train was available, but we sat at a separate table. We enjoyed the teriyaki salmon... More

The food is not 100% authentic Japanese, but it's pretty close and far superior to the local competition! There are good options for people who don't like raw fish such as the nice tempura set meal and curry udon. If you want to eat Japanese food in Belfast this is the only show in town.
