Lovely place and I went with a load of friends who really enjoyed their steaks. I had the sushi though and it was fine but no better than similar stuff half the price at Sapporo or even, to be honest, Yo Sushi. I didn't order steak because I'm too much of a tightwad.

This restaurant takes a bit of finding, keep your eyes open. A glass house surrounds a hole in the floor, steps which take you to a new world. A very classy world.

This trendy underground bar is perfect for a stylish start to evening or a lively place to finish a night out. There is a good choice of drinks and the atmosphere is vibrant. If you can get a table then make sure yourself comfortable and enjoy your night !

What a wonderful restaurant! I went here with a group of female friends and we had such a brilliant time. Gorgeous food, both in appearance and taste with lots of sushi which we all love. The chocolate melting dessert topped it off and was fun to share. Will definitely be back again soon!
