Went to this Restaurant on the 17th December for a Birthday Night out. It was a very clean and welcoming place. The food was of a very high standard and the service was exemplary. I would recommend this restaurant very highly, well worth a visit.

I've visited a few times now and enjoyed a good meal each time. The menu caters for Japanese, Chinese, Indian and Thai, so you should have a good chance of having something different each time. Though petty, the only issue I have is with the cutlery. While it is stylish, having a thin triangular cross section, it is not easy... More

Dear Jacquelyn 955, Thank you for your review. I am not a lover of buffets myself, but when catering for 70 customers we have no option but to serve the main courses from buffet units.

Sushi had been off the menu here for a while, so I was pleased to hear (via twitter) that it was back on a Friday and Saturday. Birthday meal sorted, baby-sitter booked, taxi to YoYos. It's always a pleasant atmosphere here so a swift drink in the bar area is a must. A little quieter than I'd expected, but a... More

Dear d_plums, Thank you for your very good review, and pleased you enjoyed our Sushi, Maki & Sashimi combo. Offering sushi depends on how busy we are in the restaurant as to when it is available. When we have over 100 booked we do not offer sushi, so always check before you make a reservation. November is a funny month... More

Visited last week with work friends, had a great night. Pre-dinner cocktails were excellent. Wide choice on the menu, we all had different starters and mains, all looked good, food was presented well and all delicious. Staff all nice, very attentive, would definitely go back.

A wide range of Asian style food options from Chinese, Thai, Japanese etc. Delicious food and cocktails. We go regularly for a relaxing night out. Also good for those in our party who need gluten free diets.

I visit shipley regularly and this is my firstnight here. Without doubt the food is a street in front of other places in the area. It's a fusion of Malay, Indian, Japanese and Chinese (though plays the Tremeloes on the soundtrack so hasn't quite figured out the amotsphere yet). The food despite the mix is actually very good and much... More

I visited this restaurant as a surprise for a departing friend. We'd been to the great value Agraah round the corner a few times but fancied something fancier than a self-service buffet.
