“Quick food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I went here with a few friends for a quick bite to eat for lunch. If its quick service you went then fine but I found the food quite bland.

“Unnecessary review, everyone knows how great this place is!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Anyone who's ever lived in Brighton, or visited for that matter, has probably checked this place out because of the glowing reviews friends and co workers have given it. And it's not without reason.
The food is great, and the prices are suited to every pocket. It's seemingly ALWAYS busy though, so be prepared to wait a while, as it is a very small venue. Or save the waiting and get it to take away.
Portions are perfect, and for about £5 a dish, you can't complain! Fancy a cheap night out with friends? DONE.

“I love it !”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

This place is a tiny Japanese restaurant. Really small, really busy, the waitress will ask you kindly to move out of her way when you wait to pass your order and to wait outside if it is to take away, and strangely it is really charming. No sushis here, real good traditional Japanese street food. One of my favourite places!

“quick and great value”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The pokey atmosphere in no way reflects the quality of food churned out by this place. It is quick, cheap and really tasty. There's a lot to choose from and the pictorial menu certainly helps with decision making.

“The reviews aren't wrong.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Visited this place on the basis of the rave reviews on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. Food's great and terrific value. BYO booze and paying in cash downstairs when you order tell you you're in a cafe, but the food knocks spots off some of Brighton's fancier , more expensive, Japanese rivals.
It feels like a proper authentic experience, we went because of the reviews, I hope you do too.
