We are always impressed with the slick friendly service and last night was no different. We booked for a movie later, and decided on having a meal in the mall. Fortunately, were seated on arrival, and placed our orders. Food arrived quickly, to the normal high standard. Tempura pranws were really delicious. Waitrons are friendly and knowledgeable. I wonder why... More

To the person who wrote "Eye Watering Prices : Totally and Utterly over priced”... This is totally untrue. The restaurant has and is still owned by the same owners for 20 years.

What a fabulous... More

Okay - is the sushi good? Yes. But there a plenty of places for good sushi! I guess one can say that it is consistent. But as someone who really values ambiance, I can't get over that half of the tables are in the walkway in the mall. Just not the dining experience I am looking for. And certainly not... More

Willoughby is known for fresh tasty sushi and never disappoints. The portions are generous with good service. The outside seating is mainly in the thoroughfare of the Waterfront so quite busy and lacking atmosphere. Queues can be long during season so best to go outside of busy times like lunch time or dinner. Worth a visit though if you enjoy... More

First time, the service was slow and the sushis were warm. Since everybody find this place so awesome, we decided to give it another shot. Second time, it was a bit better. Service is still slow and trying to push to you consume more. Sushis are good and inventive. I don't think this place deserves 5 stars, maybe 3,5, especially... More

We were excited to try willoughby given the positive reviews, but left underwhelmed. Clearly a popular restaurant as it was packed and we were happy to get a spot at the sushi bar. Location is a bit odd in the mall. The service was quite slow - waited at least 10 minutes for our server and additional 10/15 for our... More

Excellent menu choice. It's absolutely fascinating to watch how well prepared the chefs are, they always look so calm but the restaurant is so busy. When I say busy I mean really packed. I always end up eating there as I know that once again it will be just amazing. Well done Willoughby team.

I have been going to this spot at least twice a month for the past 2 years. Sadly, over the last two months the portions have shrunken, there is inconsistency in terms of quality of food and the prices have increased tremendously- a hot topic of discussion with most people in Atlantic seaboard. This week, hoping it had improved my... More
