A delight to eat there. Always fresh Sushi, Sashimi, Bento Box and Tempura dishes are to die for. The other Japanese eatery a few doors away is prepared by students for roughly the same price. Need I say more. Worth every penny.

Plus, the restaurant was... More

A tasty journey from beginning to end. Garden outside fab for pre- supper drinks and the inside attractive with the water-wall. Staff extremely well informed on all aspects of the menu and it was really yummy.

4 of us went on a Tuesday lunchtime and had something different from the pub food options for around the same price. 2 Wabi Bento boxes, 1 Sushi and Sashimi Lunch and 1 Chicken Don came to £51.01. All of us enjoyed the food and we wound all happily do lunch here again.
