Great cosy restaurant, Japanese owned. No sushi on the menu (there are too many of those nearby) but great sashimi and other Japanese dishes. Very friendly owners always in for a talk.

But when I entered this place with the quiet and cozy atmosphere, I decided to stay and eat on my own rather than doing take away (which was not offered). One of the best sushis i have ever had! the sashimi was VERY fresh, I loved the alges,... More

Had lunch at Bento, For lunch they have three set menus, all of them include noodle soup, and you can choose between udon, soba or ramen. The soup is very good and with the traditional Japanese accessories. The dumplings, which also are included in all the lunch menus are also very good, crisp and tasty. The additional Miso soup with... More

Fantastic service and food in this cozy and very Japanese restaurant. We had the Sashimi bento and were not disappointed. The best raw fish we have had outside of Tokyo. Must-visit if you love Japanese food.

This is an unassuming restaurant, and the decor is understated, the food speaks for itself. We went there due to recommendations on here and I was not disappointed. I had the sashimi boat - woooow! and my husband had Chicken terriyaki bento with two beers it came to £77. The service was faultless - we felt so welcome on arrival,... More

Popped in here as it was directly over the road from the Andersen Hotel where I was staying. This is a small, family run restaurant with a limited menu (which to my mind is a good thing). I had chicken teriyaki bento and it was very tasty. The skin could have been a bit crisper, but it was otherwise good.... More
