“Great food, shame about the portions”

Had a lovely impromptu meal here recently, having only recently "discovered" Japanese food. The food was very high quality and tasted great. Only niggle was that the price was high given the small portions. Particularly high recommendation for the pork katsudon and the

“Delicious!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Decided to try this wee place after seeing good reviews on TA. We had a lovely meal, service & food both excellent. The food was freshly cooked and delicious, we tried a selection of starters and mains as unsure what to try, all were very good. Good value at under £60 for a table of 3 with drinks.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

The restaurant was busy on a Friday evening so it's probably a good idea to book. The service was friendly and efficient, in fact the young lady who served us was really charming. Japanese food is new to us so we bravely tried out a few random dishes and they were all freshly prepared, well presented and delicious. There are many intriguing items on the menu, including grilled chicken, beef or salmon, curries, noodles, prawn dishes, stir-fries and several vegetarian dishes. I found the decor very clean but a bit stark and uninviting, and I thought the drinks were on the expensive side, but give top marks for food and service and will definitely return.

“Decent food.. Not so good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

The miso soup was too salty.. Dumplings were delicious.. The fried rice and ramen were not too bad.. Could improve on the service.. Not much help with the description of dishes.
