I ordered some fried sushi as a starter, and wow, was amazed at the amazing taste. The waiters are the best and the fresh seafood is very good. The calamari on the particular day that we visited was not up to scratch, but the prawns and other seafood made up for it.

I also tried the sushi which was amazing. The location of this restaurant was great on Knysna waterfront. Need this chain to reach the UK
