This place deserves it excellent reviews and popularity. We arrived at about 19.30 which is obviously a mega busy time and queued for about 25mins which was quite a sociable event chatting with fellow queuees. If you are a couple hold out for a seat at the bar as it is fantastic watching the chefs prepare the sushi. We are... More

According to my 15 year old son (a sushi connoisseur) "The best sushi in Cape Town" Certainly up there.. Not a great fan of sitting in shopping malls but it is always full. That many people can't be wrong.. I always choose the bar with the four by four a favourite and the soft shell crab absolutely delicious..

I went for dinner with a friend visiting from San Francisco and she recommended this place. I've been living in Cape Town for 16 years and have never been at this place. For a 1st time I really enjoyed the food. Meal for 2 with drinks came to R550.

Great food, service and vibe! Truly the best sushi in SA. Their 4x4 is recommended for first timers as well as return customers and their chivitche will blow your mind!

We came to this restaurant on the instructions of my brother who is a regular customer. What a lovely surprise. The food was delicious and well presented. The service was excellent and prompt. My only concern was that it was a little expensive.

I have visit Willoughbies over a decade and never had a bad meal. It is one of the most consistent restaurants in Cape Town. The menu caters for all people and everybody should find something they like. My children is in seventh heaven if they can eat sushi.

Went to Willoughby & Co to have lunch with my friend. We had Edamame, chicken satay, tempura Ebi, yakitory and yaki soba prawn and it was all freshly made and amazingly delicious. The staff was very friendly and super attentive. Willoughby is always fully booked, so make sure to make a reservation. I warmly recommend this place :)

We went on a mid week evening and had to wait quite a while. The food is plentiful but quality wise not the best you will eat. I had grilled Kingklip which was fine. Sushi looked to be a disappointment for some.
