“Excellent food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

The best Sushi we had on our trip by a long way. Food was superb and they were flexible enough to change some elements in their set menus. Location was nice also and seemed relatively safe (so long as you stayed in the walled area.) Service was quick and friendly, wine was also very good. A great night out.

So many great dishes....so little time. The new style sushi dishes are great although a little rich. Yum!

“Eclectic Asian mix that works suprisingly well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

You will find all manner of Asian dishes on the menu, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and a few others all have a spot. The food is excellent, prepared well and true to the original dish. Order a few dishes and share, you won't be sorry. The wine selection is good with many options offered by the glass as well. This is fast become a very trendy hangout - if you're looking for a table at dinner time, its wise to book in advance.
