Love this place!

I love coming here - the food is always excellent, atmosphere is good, the service welcoming and the food reasonably priced. Only downside is the occasional loud group of students - not saying don't have a good time but consider the small size of the place and lower the volume of your... read more

Only downside is the occasional loud group of students - not saying don't have a good time but consider the small size of the place and lower the volume of your voices/guffaws?

I have reviewed this restaurant before however I had to review it once more! This restaurant is very humble on appearance and that is the charm. It's priced within everyone's budget and the food? The food does not disappoint! I will come to this restaurant over and over again! If indecisive on what to choose, prawn tempura ( the batter... More

I absolutely adore this restaurant. The owner is so kind and welcoming whenever we go in or order. The sushi is beautiful especially the crab tobiaki. It's always fresh too. It would be amazing if they joined JustEat or equivalent though so takeaway delivery orders could be paid for via card.

I was really surprised when I saw so many positive reviews about this little restaurant on tripadvisor. My experience with this place is completely on the other side of the spectrum. Could that be the restaurant changed hand recently? Whatever the reason I feel I need to warn other eaters. If you are intending to come to this place for... More

This place is not what it claims to be, I was very disappointed. Japanese food is meant to be fresh and delicious, all the dishes were barely warm, the service was poor and everything looked slightly filthy. The chef was the only one who was nice but honestly, I do not recommend this place for authentic Japanese food. Everything tasted... More

I visited here with two friends this evening and we have all since spent most of the evening very unwell. (Vomiting etc) We ordered lots of things of the menu / most of which tasted great. However when we came to eat the salmon sashimi - it was frozen in the middle! And the chicken skewers and karaage tasted off.... More

The food here is fantastic, this last time I went for a sushi boat, 30 pieces; and such good value for money! The selection is fantastic, the eel is beautifully prepared and isn't as sickly sweet as many other places in Manchester prepare it. The smoked salmon is subtle but lovely and the octopus and either cuttlefish or squid (wasn't... More
