If you enjoy great sushi this is the place - this is not the 'Liquorice Allsort' offering often found - wide choice of individual pieces and combination platters - Sushi not your thing? try the extensive Japanese and Thai menu - my partner is Thai this is one of her favorite places - highly recommended.

With friends, we had a brilliant dinner and the variety was astounding. Service was excellent, very friendly owner [and his mother]. The place is small, the ambiance is quaint and simple. Such a popular place. I will recommend it to anyone.

We love the sushi here (however, would welcome at least 1 day of half price!!) and the Thai food is also amazing. We have visited a number of times at different times of the day and the service has always been excellent. I would highly recommend.

Went on a Monday evening to pick up take aways. The tempura fish wasn't crispy but still ok. The chicken filling in the dim sum was dry and tough (even in ground form). The Thai beef and spicy rice was very disappointing. Overcooked and dry beef strips that were sparse amongst lots of old rice. The only dish that was... More

One of the few great sushi places in Durban! Sushi really is amazing here. While you can find better deals elsewhere, food is truly spectacular. Service and location aren't the best.

This little restaurant still remains one of our favourites - the food, service and atmoshphere excellent. The management and staff do make you feel at home even though we are not regular "weekly" visitors - they remember what you drink and what your favourites are - keep up the good standards

I came here with another Asian because it was recommended and we were disappointed. Perhaps because we are Asians. Thai green curry is definitely below average.. noodle is average. The Thai owner is very friendly but the staff, not so much.

The review is probably based on the fact that we sat (no choice!) outside the building and it was really cold with a biting wind. We tried I a few occasions to re-seat inside as tables became available but this seemed to be far too much effort for one of the 2 servers. Our request to turn on the gas... More
