Stopped in for dinner after a day sightseeing - liked the decor, an attractive dungeon (!), relaxed atmosphere, and the food was really tasty without being spectacular. However, the wait-person who looked after us was really lovely and the prices were reasonable.

Well, sadly, they were out of fish so sushi was not an option. Everything we had was ok but not unusual. The basement location is a positive feature.

I had salmon noodles and the salmon looked and tasted like it came from a can. The noodles were tasteless and there was very little else in the way of garnish or flavour. My wife had prawn tempura rolls which were loosely rolled and falling...More
