Popped in whilst waiting for a shop to open, had prawn yaki £6.45 and a bottle of what turned out to be rather sugar laden "juicy water" the sugar was tiny print :( Shame to see that the place has closed :(

I have never been disappointed when visiting Origin except recently when I found the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc was no longer on the wine list! Even without Kim, this will always be a firm favourite of mine.

Visited a few times and tried a wide variety of items from the menu. While the sushi was nice - all of the hot items we disappointing. Food was expensive for what it was. Great cocktails and drink menu.
