“What a place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

You have to ask why a small inconspicuous restaurant on the Greenwich Rd is consistently voted as being on of the top 10 ten restaurants in London; the answer is obvious of course, it is the quality of the food along with presentation, service and price. I was there again yesterday evening and the experience was as stimulating and pleasurable as the first time I went - maybe more so as my confidence with the chef means I am now more adventurous with the menu.

“Now on my sixth visit in 2 months”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Great food, great service - personally I love the fact that I get excellently presented and tasty food, that's beautifully decorated in an unpretentious cafe environment at reasonable price - whats not to like?

“Amazing quality for great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The food is beautifully presented. Top quality ingredients. Great flavours. Innovative dishes and lots of choices. The restaurant is small and basic. Friendly staff and prompt service. Amazing value for money. You can normally only get food like this in a really expensive restaurant.

“A must visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

It's a hidden gem a bit of the beaten path. But if you like or even think you like Japanese food or if u just like good food u have to visit. The food is excellent the portions are filling and the price is reasonable. I now know why it's so highly rated it'd well deserved.
