It made a good attempt to be authentic.  However I do think they use MSG.  I got a bad case of dry mouth after our meal, which is a good indication for me of MSG usage.  I'm on the fence in terms of recommending this place.  If you can't find somewhere else better and you got a bad craving for...

We tried the chicken chop, noodles and sushi at this restaurant. We found them tasty and value for money. The owner was very friendly and helpful to explain the menu to us. Will eat here again.

The food is simple, tasty and fresh, with surprisingly little oil. The portion sizes are generous. Everything is MSG free and the family that run the place seem very hands on. A lovely spot when cooking isn't inspiring or you just need to pop in for a nibble. This isn't a posh spot, the decor isn't a feature or focus... More
