Eventually we asked the waiter to assist and went with her recommendation which was absolutely fantastic! service was great. All in... More

Simply the best sushi and sushimi I have ever had. We asked a number of people where they recommended for sushi and the constant answer was Willoughby's. Always busy and a huge range of food on offer. We were always seated quickly at the bar where we could watch the food being prepared. Service was quick and the quality f... More

We came for a late lunch and sat at the sushi bar. Ordered some crispy rice with salmon (wonderful) and tuna sashimi with jalepeno sauce (just ok). We also got the oysters which were very good. The best part about the meal was halva ice cream at the end. It was perfect. The service was also excellent, we even got... More

Always a great place to come to. Best sushi in town. Good selection of wines. I come here very often - it's my go to place to avoid Cape Town traffic after work

This is a must if you love sushi! It's the best sushi you will find in Cape Town and surroundings. You can't book a table so be in for a wait! No matter what time or day you go there will always be a line. Service is fast and efficient

Going to Willoughby's when in CT is like a right of passage, simply the best sushi ever! The staff are well trained, friendly and have an excellent knowledge of the very extensive menu, not only sushi but a full Japanese kitchen. Be prepared to wait for your meal, the restaurant is always busy and getting a table at peak times... More

Admittedly we always order the same thing on this menu, just because it is THAT delicious. Black pepper seared tuna salad with peanut sauce. Sushi to share for starter, which is always fresh. Also love their wine selection, with Napier Chardonnnay being our favourite.

Although I rarely eat in mall restaurants when traveling to developing countries (I love to try the local food where safe and appropriate), some friends took me here where they ordered sushi which they declared excellent). I opted for a plate of oysters which were terrific. I also got a seafood pasts which also was good. The atmosphere was mall-like,... More

We were sceptical when our hotel recommended a shopping centre restaurant, but then we arrived and saw the queue waiting for a table! However the wait was short (and we were even given a taste of wine whilst waiting!) and we had a great meal. Tom yum soup was very good, as was the sushi.
