“Very enjoyable lunch venue”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

A great alternative to tapas at lunchtime. Fun, modern setting; friendly staff; fascinating range of small dishes inspired by the Pacific Rim.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

After visiting quite a number of times I had to right a review!
This place is amazing the duck dragon rolls and eel sushi is just mouth wateringly good and the service us top notch! I myself always order the mixed nigiri sushi but the spicy salmon gurkan is full of flavour and to top this place off the deserts are just as good especially the soufflé's and great cocktail menu and would also like to say that that who ever the lady was in the blue dress on Friday June 27th she looked like maybe a manager she was very helpful and pleasant

“Special sushi & desserts!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Food, drinks & stylish shop fit has been enjoyed on many occasions but I always find the service a little disappointing for the prices you pay, to many different people coming to your table - chill a little

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

I had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's very stylish and although large and open plan there are also many booths for those who prefer more privacy. Its basement location could be oppressive but the high ceiling and use of light natural tones creates the illusion of natural light. The food is modern pan-Asian, all beautifully presented and with some imaginative flavour combinations. Our waiter was very attentive and happy to explain the dishes; the ipad based wine list is a little gimmicky but that didn't stop us playing with it! We chose a selection of small dishes, tapas-style, and enjoyed them all enormously. Luckily we saved space for dessert which, on first inspection, seemed to offer a more limited and less eclectic choice than the other courses but our souffles (one passionfruit, one chocolate) were fantastic. Prices are not cheap but the quality of food and service is sufficient to justify them - plus if you register on the website before you visit, you will receive a 20% off food voucher by email. Even on a Monday evening it was pretty busy but we managed to get a table at less than a week's notice and they there was no pressure to vacate our table after we'd finished eating.
