“excellent food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Been here several times. Food is excellent and will go again as still working through menu. Take your own beer\ wine. It is a cafe and a shame it's not bigger but who cares as the food is so good. if travelling from cutty sark dlr it's definitely a bus ride and pay by cash. To be on the safe side suggest you book.

“Surprised sushi bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I went with my boyfriend, the special rolls deserve the price, and tempura is the most delicious one I have tried ever! By the way, the chief is nice and friendly!

“Average at best #2”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Group of 4. All love sushi from 'rough and ready' to high end.
Agree with J2300 in rating. Atmosphere was poor. Tempura was heavy and claggy not the crispy, light as air batter it should be. The Nasu Goma was delicious. Sashimi was good, the salmon in particular was well sliced and fresh. We had the Volcano, Dragon and Unagi rolls. Both volcano and dragon were rather disappointing, too much dressing/mayo for my liking (however, this is a fusion Japanese restaurant, so I guess this comes with the territory). Unagi roll was good.
Restaurant is BYO which I like. Meal came to £18 each with tip so very good price. Verdict: if I was in the area I might try it again but wouldn't make a trip especially.

“This place is amazing! Never thought Sushi could be so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

I came here for the first time because it was my brother's birthday. I was driven over from central London and I was thinking why the hell have we travelled all this way? The main road looked unexciting and the outside of the restaurant looks like it will be a greasy spoon cafe....
BUT! When you order, you will be presented with the most extraordinarily beautiful and mouth-wateringly delicious displays of food. The chef creates the most astounding pieces of food art which not only look stunning to the eye, they taste divine as well!
A place well worth a journey!
