“Very Good Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Nice fresh ambience, very good service, very good sushi, been there more than 5 times and never had a complaint.
Mind the 10% tip that gets loaded automatically on your bill (irrespective of the number of people at the table)!

“Great sushi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We bought a voucher for a 44 piece sushi platter and last night went to the restaurant for the first time. The sushi was really excellent and all the cocktails were half price - bargain! However, I would not recommend any other food from the menu. We ordered some spring rolls and tempura calamari and although it wasn't terrible, it was just ok. One of our party ordered the rib and fish combo which was weird, the chips tasted old and the fish was chewy. I would definitely not mind going back for more sushi and cocktails but nothing else.

“Expellant venue and good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Leave Restaurant not only cater for the sushi lover but also for other tastes. We enjoyed the ambiance and the quality of the food and will continue with our visits to this restaurant.
Speed of the service can be improved and the waiters can be trained to react on a more professional manner.

“Catering for our taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012 via mobile

Friendly and helpful service promised to tone down the heat in the chefs special green curry and my wife's dish.
What arrived was a perfect fusion of freshly cooked food.

“Delicious Food and great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

The Sushi at this restaurant is delicious and the service outstanding ! Great value for money !! I also enjoyed the lovely "fresh" appearance of the decor and the cleanliness. The staff is very friendly and I will most definitely return to this unassuming little restaurant.
