“Average!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The foods Good don't get me wrong but it could be so much better! the place is huge for starters so if they quiet like they were when we went the next table is 20m away. It is however a beautiful restaurant and i would like to try it at night. The service was ok nothing special and the food is well presented and well portioned. It was my first time and i wasn't blown away but i'm willing to give it another shot!

“Great Half Price Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Had a wonderful Sevruga Sushi Platter. On half price Tuesdays before 6pm the sushi is great value. The service was excellent. There wasn't much atmosphere as its a large restaurant and wasn't very full.

“At last Sevruga in Durban!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We always visit this restaurant in Cape Town and are now delighted that someone had the foresight to come to KZN!! The sushi is simply the best - the service is awesome and the entire experience is just that - an experience! We will keep going back time and time again!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

My mother and I had a somewhat unfortunate experience at Beluga on her birthday.We raised our concernes and then went to lunch at Sevruga, and WOW. What a wonderful afternoon, the service and attention was definately an improvement. The waitron, Londiwe, has a lovely attitude, she is friendly, positive and knowledgable. Although, we had to ask her name.

The floor managaress Vuyo is also lovely, polite and so beutifully dressed, she definately plays the role well.

A special thank you to Kamila for her attention, sharing with us and the fantastic dessert selection she sent.

Sevruga, Beluga and Ortega all have fantastic quality sushi, good value for money and especially good on half price days. But there is a huge difference in service, attention and style.

As a hotelier, I prefer Sevruga and will definately send clients there in the future.

Tips: Avoid Sevruga when there are concerts or events on at the Wavehouse.

“GREAT FOOD , AVERAGE LOCATION”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

This restaurant is top class in terms of food & service. The sushi platters are magnificent and well priced. The wine selection is extensive and covers all ranges of budget and palette. Service was subtle but attentive, with close attention to all the niceties of fine dining. My only disappointment is the location ; the outside seating area is positioned above the roller skate rink. It is noisy and intrusive. I have to caveat that I am not very tolerant of skateboarding noise, so others may find this less of a annoyance. My advice is to sit inside , which is great !
