So I usually come to Cape Town twice a year and come to this restaurant because the fantastic experience, however the food especially sushi consistently getting worse and worse every time. Today was no different, the rice was hard, and rough, the overall taste was bland. Tempura Udon is also bland and inedible. The only good thing is the service... More

Best, freshest most dainty delicious sushi I've ever had. (Most expensive as well , it was such a treat though so worth every cent) If you are at the V&A waterfront it's worth a visit to spoil yourself! The service was fast and friendly and food beautifully presented. Rainbow reloaded was probably my favorite.!

Consistently great seafood - with some exceptional sushi, and freshest produce. The rock shrimp tempura rolls are as good as it gets.

The restaurant is normally packed and the sushi is excellent and tasty with a very large variety on the menu. I missed pictures of the dishes and did not know what the names of the different dishes meant. It is in the hustle and bustle of the mall and no ambience. Service was average to good. I recommend for sushi.

It seems weird that the best sushi restaurant is inside an enormous mall but....it's true. Very busy seafood restaurant with table seating in middle of mall and counter seating inside the restaurant. The wait staff is quick, efficient and knows their product. Our waiter (Jeremy?) had been there 5 years and was very helpful. Seafood--and sushi-- is the star. The... More

Being on the inside of V and A mall ... I have often just walked past this restaurant and wondered why people were lined up waiting for a table BUT now I know ! The food here is excellent and the service makes up for the very busy space. Very different meals were ordered and all of us were more... More

We were amazed that the sushi was so fresh and delicious at this mall chain restaurant. But, it was some of the best sushi I've ever eaten and at reasonable prices.

We had lunch at this place and it was perfect! The sushi tuna and salmon only platters were excellent, the sashimi came in generous slices. Service was very professional and quick. You can see passion for fresh fish here, we would definitely return.

People have been talking about this place a lot and everyone I've seen has recommended this place. When we've arrived for lunch, there was a queue of about 15-20, but they have offered everyone a glass of white wine of your choice (Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay); which was very thought of.. If you are OK by sitting at the bar... More
