One of the best meals I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Beautifully presented, fresh and full of flavours - they made broccoli simply amazing. Prices are very reasonable.

I’ve been here a few times to eat over the past few months and can never fault the freshness of the sashimi, great but non-pushy service and deliciousness of everything else non-sashimi. I will come back here time and time again and will always look...More
