Top notch

Visited with some friends, this was my first taste of sushi (late to the party) and I could t have asked for a better introduction. Maybe a little bit expensive, but then we did keep trying dishes off the menu so it was our own fault. Well worth a visit if you fancy this menu

First off, the music being played - from a musical, really ...... There's no drama or amazing food - a guy (not Japanese but an an East Londoner via Hong Hong) cooks nice, fresh ingredients for you on a hot plate, nothing special. I didn't eat the first course, a salad that had seen better days, the second course, a... More

Just had lunch with my wife in Fujiyama on our first (and one of many in the future) Food was excellent and service quick, friendly and helpful. The tempura was so light, and tasty my mouth is watering just thinking about it. When can we go again? It might just be enough to keep us going until a return trip... More

We booked a meal here on our daughter's request for her 21st Birthday. The staff were very accommodating and the choice of food was extraordinary. Everything was cooked beautifully, with just one problem; The vegetarian starter came up containing pork. This was soon rectified and the cost of this was taken off the final bill.

Hubby and I went here for our anniversary lunch while we were staying in Southend and were so happy we did - from the spicy edamame to the sushi, everything we ate was freshly prepared and a taste sensation (direct quote from Hubby who was having his first proper sushi!). It was great to learn that the sauces and Japanese... More

I was disappointed to read the negative reviews of this restaurant. All the previous reviews (word of mouth) that I'd had were overwhelmingly positive, and so I had a fairly good view of the place before I visited. We went for my son's 16th birthday. He's a fan of all things Japanese and so requested this place for the family... More

Be warned!! This restaurant is extremely over priced and a 10% service is compulsory regardless of your party size. The staff are rude and unfriendly. The food is hit and miss...the chicken was great, the rice was dry and overcooked and the steak was smothered in teriyake sauce. Would not recommend and will definitely not visit this restaurant again. Very... More

Hello, The 10% service charge is stated on all our menus and we believe this to be a standard across many restaurants. Some even charge 12.5% - 15%. I am surprised to hear that you find our staff rude and unfriendly. Our service is one of the things that people talk highly about, even if the food is not to... More

We visited Fuijiyama for my sister in law's birthday on Saturday night, she is a huge fan of Japanese food so we opted for the Teppanyaki option. I have been to a Japanese restaurant in London previously and found the chef to be very entertaining, making the experience fun and enjoyable. Unfortunately, my experience at Fujiyama was neither fun or... More

We came here last Sunday evening for mum's birthday. Being a sunday evening it was only us in the restaurant. We booked the teppanyaki. The staff made us feel welcome and the banter from our chef was great. I think we could of all passed on the salad and soup, but the main was brilliant. So much flavour and seeing... More
