I came here for lunch with my family after reading the reviews. The restaurant is run by Japanese, not like those In London with everything cooked by non-Japanese. Good food at reasonable price.

A part of the kitchen is in the eating area itself which is always interesting! The food itself was to die for, I had the best Prawn Katsu California roll I have ever had... More

This is the loveliest, most authentic Japanese restaurant and it serves the most delicious sushi. Everything we ate tasted amazing and was cooked to perfection. The waitress really looked after us. I cannot fault it at all. A truly amazing place.
