Hadn't been to the Higoi for many years and had quite forgotten just how good it is. Had a great meal there and was reminded of quiet authenticity with no gimmicks. Lovely warm atmosphere and excellent service.

This shattered all my negative feelings about sushi. Lots of choice of food, not just fish. All cooked / prepared superbly. Really tasty. We had a take away rather than eat in and had to wait over an hour from ordering before going to collect...More

"This is by far the best Japanese food I have had outside London", said my Japanese friend from Tokyo. And he wasn't wrong. You pay the prices for the quality but when you eat art, money should match the masterpiece.
