“Terrible service and obnoxious manager”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We went as two families, 4 adults and 5 children. The food took an hour to arrive, green teas took nearly as long as apparently they had run out of hot water?! When the food eventually arrived it was good but it is totally overpriced (£60 for 15 sushi).
When at the end we complained to the manager about the wait, we were told that we hadn't waited long at all and that they were the best sushi in London! We know many other sushi places in London which serve the same quality without the wait and attitude.
We will never return. Only go if you are prepared to leave half your monthly salary and wait very long for it.

“Fantastic Japanese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Great sushi using really high quality ingredients. I loved the combination of ingredients especially the ponzu and truffle that were added to some of the sushi pieces. It's not cheap but really felt worth the money.

“Sushi reivented”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Very nice restaurant. The quality of the sushi is great and every piece of sashimi and sushi comes with an interesting and creative sauce. They dont give you soja sauce but you would not nees it! Everything was tasty and surprisiing. Only complaint: the quantity. Coupd be more given the price.

“Outstanding experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

From start to finish it was fantastic, the precision, presentation and taste of the food was delightful. It was hard to take your eyes of the chefs handiwork so would agree with the recommendation to sit at the counter. Service was attentive and friendly. There was also nothing pretentious about it when we were there, just a good buzz and relaxed atmosphere.
