“Only the best Japanese in London....!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I found this place by accident about three years ago. I was working nearby and as the area is a barren desert foodwise I checked it out. I then ate there EVERY DAY for the next 6 weeks (until my contract finished). It is simply the best value/taste Japanese that I have been to. I make sushi at home (not very well) but the quality of the fish and the presentation is exceptional here. The cooked stuff is just as good. If I was back in the area I would go every day again...

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Don't be put off by the decor, as this very ordinary looking and cheaply furnished cafe serves truly amazing sushi; it seems to have a loyal following by those in the know. We had a mix of starters including tempura and sushi; can highly recommend the soft shell crab rolls. The scallops were totally fresh. Compared to the chain owned brands with fancy decor, high prices and mediocre food, this is a real gem. As well as superb food it is pleasantly inexpensive.

“More like Thai Sushi”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Just had a very bad experience there. Don't look for any kind of good sushi there, as I just got the worst in my life probably. Cheap furniture, unfriendly staff and a chef from Thailand add up to an incredibly disappointing experience.There's one place I will never go back.

“Good sushi”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We went here because of the high trip advisor score. Loved the food, but the restaurant is a bit shabby. Old furniture, TL lights. Not very romantic. Sushi is worth 4 stars, location 2.
