A takeaway Bento box is a frequent Friday night dinner for our family, and has been for many years. Quality is guaranteed and the prices are reasonable, to say the least. We have dined in a few times and found the service to be a little eccentric at times. Not terrible, more entertaining. I would highly recommend a visit or... More

I have been here couple of times and did not get disappointed. The bento box is one of my favorite and better than what I find in Japan. The food are exactly what you expect in Japanese cuisine and also of good value.

Lovely place. Sushi is fresh, original and recommended. Bento is great and salmon chirasi donburi showcases fresh, smoked, raw, marinated and charred salmon. Very reasonably priced.

Decent prices with unpretentious quirky decor. Worth a visit, and the staff were lovely on the night we visited, even though they were very busy. Suggest booking ahead for dinner as we went on a Saturday night and they were full.

Tonight was the second time I have popped in for takeaway. I have not been disappointed either of those times. The food outdoes the outdated decor and the slight slow counter service due to lack of waitresses but they make do. The magic happens in the kitchen. I am a sushi girl and the sushi here is fab but tonight... More
