“Consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Willoughby &Co is our very favorite place for consistently good sushi and fish dishes. We rate it highly for service too. All orders are prepared as they are placed and the staff always aim to please. What it lacks in views ( it is in a mall) it makes up in every other way and it is our first choice of restaurant. Their Japanese kitchen produces a great teriyaki steak too. Go test this venue for yourself.

“Casual, noisy, vibey and great fresh fish.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

The queues say it all! Summer or Winter - lunch time or supper time, people are queuing to eat at this amazing eatery. The sushi is wonderful, the fish is fresh and cooked to perfection. A wonderful meal every time!

“Memorable sushi, superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

Food was fantastic. Soft-shelled crab delightful, 4x4 and tempura prawn rolls a fine choice of sushi recommended by brilliant waitress Mary Ann who was informed, helpful and friendly.

We would all recommend this most wholeheartedly. Don't be put off by the position inside the V and A mall, the food more than makes up for it.

“Arrogant useless manager”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

We went in on the Friday and they said they did do takeaway and so we went back on the Saturday to order. But surprise! We were told they were too busy and could not help us. The manager (trying very hard to look like a wannabe Japanese hipster and not quite pulling it off) told us rather rudely, and I quote "That is not my problem!"

It is simply not acceptable that staff can get away with this type of behaviour in a service industry! The location is also horrible, the middle passage in a shopping mall so one would hope the service would compensate.

“You wont get any better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

We visit to Willoughby & Co a lot as we cant get enough of this place. Its by FAR the best Sushi and food in general that I've had. Staff are always professional and very friendly.
Its already a world class restaurant but if only they had a view over the harbor of the V&A Waterfront it would be even better!!
