Nice icecream with matcha. Good price. Around 20 pounds per person. Good range of Japanese drinks. Noodles and rolls are good

Very disappointed. Never a good start when your sushi arrives beneath your nose and smells very fishy. Please can you ask your chef how old was the fish (Nigiri chef selection) I was served today at 3.30pm? The tuna was discoloured, showing some brown, which...More

No matter your taste (as long as you like Japanese, obviously) you should find something to eat here. The bento boxes are a great option and pretty much a perfect meal accompanied with a starter/side - great, balanced flavours, the right amount of food and...More

Never had proper sushi before so I'm hardly an authoritative on the subject but I really enjoyed the meal. Particularly liked the Nigiri, and the complimentary little bowl of soup before the meal was a nice touch, good broth. I'd visit again.

Found this restaurant by chance and so glad we did. Our sushi was presented on a model boat and was absolutely delicious, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Would definitely come back next time I'm in Edinburgh.

I was a little nervous eating here as I haven't eaten much Japanese food in the past. I shouldn't have been worried! I had the bento box with pork katsu and it was outstanding! The salad was fresh, the rice perfectly cooked and the meat...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
