We had dinned there during our previous visit and enjoyed it so much that we couldn't wait to go there again. The second time was definitely not a disappointment. We enjoyed it even MORE. The seafood is wonderful. If you see a que, just be patient and realise that a full restaurant is a very good sign that it is... More

Willoughby's seems to be getting worse as time goes on. The service is still excellent, and so are some of the western dishes like their fish n chips and calamari. (Quite expensive though) However, the sushi has really become mediocre these last years. The rice is too sweet and mostly too big. Many of the items are over sauced or... More

This restaurant had been very highly recommended by one of the tour guides we met on our trip. We were looking for a place to have seafood. The restaurant is situated inside a mall, and we were sitting in the middle of the mall walkway (not the most comfortable sitting) The menu is divided into 2. The first side is... More

I put going through for a long time, possibly because I'm not a fan of the kitch V & A....nonetheless I relented the other night, and I'm happy I did so. Superb, knowledgeable waiters in a buzzing restaurant got me testing "The Bomb", whilst my wife had the "4 x 4". Although not cheap, for sushi so different and fresh... More

A pleasant enough meal and clearly has a lot of advocates by the constant queues. However for me the food did not stand out, was pricey versus places only a little further afield with better quality and if you do choose to eat in a tourist Mecca why do so inside with no views when there are plenty of places...

Sushi was fresh. Very tasty. Good price. Probably the one of the best if not the best sushi I've had. The food took a little long to come out.

I rank this as the worst sushi experience I've ever had. The fish had no flavor and was sliced thickly and in such a way that the fish was actually chewy. While I haven't been to Japan, I have eaten plenty of sushi all over the United States, and Willoughby ranks worse than supermarket sushi at Whole Foods. The rice... More

We sat down for sushi, were served promptly by Andrea, who chatted to us without us being at all pressurized - but the manner in which she described a speciality - 'The Bomb' required but a second of decision and was I impressed!! A sliced roll of tempura prawns & avoid, wrapped in thinly sliced seared tuna and presented with... More
