“fresh & tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate delicious sushi off the conveyor belt. It was perfect, no complaints.

The chefs were very friendly and even made us a few extra special titbits.

“Best sushi in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

You will most definetly not find better sushi in Cape Town than at 1890 ( or Charlie's as its locals know it)! Do not be fooled by the simple exterior, it is made up for in the food and the fresh fresh fish. Not to be missed!

“Really good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Good, fresh sushi! I like the conveyer belt idea, and this allowed me to try a few new types of dishes that I haven't tried before (like hand rolls and cucumber wrap instead of seaweed). The fish is nice and fresh.

A tad expensive by Cape Town standards, but still a good price for sushi.

Really nice atmosphere too, modern and clean inside.

It became one of my favourites!

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place looking for a new sushi restaurant and we absolutely loved it. The sushi was fantastic and they were very accommodating with our kids. We will be back!!

“Lovely Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Booked for dinner at thos "unknown" randomly selected out of the Mr D's menu! We were very impressed. The sushi was fresh and well made, the Chinese tasty. We were somewhat disappointed by the attitude of our waiter, either he was having a bad day or he didnt appreciate our (very mild) sense of humour, or both! That said, he didn't put us off enough to stop us going back. My new favourite spot! Be warned though, finding parking can be very difficult.
