Good food, great value

We went to the restaurant late after work just before closing but the staff were still helpful and friendly. Portions are generous and the food, despite being Chinese/Japanese fusion was still tasty. Do give this a try

Nice variety of Japanese food at an affordable price- even better so during the lunch deal times. Staff are always pleasant and service is fast. The food is great quality and large portion size for the price.

We went there this evening for dinner after reading all the online reviews. We both were so starving after a long day travelling around. I ordered a Ramen and my friend ordered a Chicken katsu curry and 2 small sides (gyoza & sushi) . We were happy as food came out quickly. However, the ramen had no taste, the curry... More

This was one of my favourite places to eat when I lived in Glasgow. I never had a bad meal at this branch and their lunchtime deal was excellent value - well, actually the whole menu was really. The staff were always pleasant and efficient and the overall experience was generally excellent.

Called for lunch, attentive service & friendly staff. Good choice on menu. Ordered ramen noodle soup - broth was quite tasteless & dish lacked authentic ingredients to make it ramen noodle soup. Was disappointed.
