Visited tonight for their 50% Sunday Sushi and pizza discount. The sushi was really good. The sashimi salmon 3 peaces was thick and tasty. All sushi was fresh and tasty. The manager was around and gave that extra special attention to personal service. It was busy, but not noisy. No corkage fee charged. Our bill came to R380 with 25... More

Sushi is great and love the calamari. They also serve a mean fillet steak. Service is always great. Have NEVER had a bad meal or bad experience at the restaurant. It has a fabulous atmosphere and beautifully decorated keeping to a fish theme. Love this restaurant.

How very disappointing..... Ordering one of the most expensive meals on the menu and really looking forward to it, and it is not as promised. Cold over cooked salmon, no tempura vegetables in sight, but good old cold creamed spinach and butternut.... All smothered in a gelatinous mustard sauce.... First time back at this restaurant in years, and certainly the... More

Great service and specials, but the regular menu is ridiculously priced. Hubby had the chicken schnitzel (delish) and I had hake & calamari grilled - dry, tasteless and completely overcooked with a bad burnt oil taste... Perhaps they should change their name to Jimmy the Schnitzel instead.

We went for a Sunday lunch and decided to have one of the winter specials. The rump steak was cooked the way we ordered. The pork schnitzel was lovely,except that I ordered the sauce on the side, but the kitchen made a mistake by putting it on the meat, and left it to our waiter to apologize for the error.... More

What a great diversified restaurant which offers daily specials. It has a warm atmosphere and great service. The particular niche of this restaurant is that it is family friendly, with a kids play area. The sushi, is especially well priced with excellent discounts on a Sunday night, and great discounts around lunchtime during the week. If you are not into... More

We are there almost every Sunday night! Half-price sushi and 40% off all pizzas! And no I'm not fat... :) Their pizzas are super good, nicely baked and not to oily with a nice variety of toppings to choose from. Paul was our waiter and we would ask for him again from no on! Not that the others are bad...we... More

Had super supper. Open fireplace really adds to ambience but need to find a more smoke free means of starting. Portions were big and tasty. Good value for money with good service
