Reviewed August 17, 2014

Relaxed and friendly. Lovely sushi. We enjoyed a drink and sushi late afternoon and found the staff friendly and helpful. The decor is inviting and the drinks menu extensive

“Very pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Had meal for two and a sample of whiskies. Food very nicely presented but a little on the expensive side. Interesting samples of a variety of whiskies including Japanese. Large dining area could do with breaking up a little to give it a more intimate feel.

“New Restuarant”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We tried this new restuarant/bar (only been opened 6 weeks), when I was there for a weekend.
It had a warm atmosphere, & the owner was very helpful as I have a limited experience in Japanese. Our taste testing was brought out to us when required asked for which was really good as nothing we ordered went cold.

The Whiskey tasting was fun even for we no whiskey drinkers.
Over all our experience was a good one :-)
