“The Combos A to F are the best value for money! The cocktails are fantastic! I think the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Excellent service, with a smile! The fresh made sushi is worthwhile to go back for. The tempura prawns are the best. Look out for the Combos, get your Soo She VIP card and get a special discount price. Try the cocktails, it is fantastic!

“Fresh sushi, service with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Whenever I am in Cape Town I make sure to visit Leaf restaurant SEVERAL times. The friendly staff know their menu and service is good. For R119 you can order the sushi buffet and have as many sushi starters and dishes as your heart desires! (restricted to 6 sashimi and 6 salmon roses) They have different platters available as well - it works out best to buy a platter or the buffet. Lovely view over the city.

“Awesome sushi deals.”

Great range of specials on sushi, especially if you have Loyalty card. Try the tempura rolls. Prawn and salmon.

“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.
