I have been a regular customer here for over 5 years, the food is so well prepared and tasty at least one family member will book this place for their birthday meal! However, I must include that sadly it can be quiet in there (which is a shame, Catford must not have very many Sushi enthusiasts!). The ceiling is slightly... More

A wonderful family run Japanese restaurant with an emphasis on creating a very relaxed atmosphere whilst serving excellent food. There are even traditional Japanese sunken seats, occasionally making for an interesting scene as people try to get in and out. Recommended

For years I'd walked past this (admittedly from the outside at least) grimy looking restaurant in Catford and never given it a second thought. It always looked closed so I assumed it was a defunct business. I decided to try it for the first time some time ago and have been back a couple of times since. The food here... More

Go there from time to time, very nice food it's look like family run business-not sure, little downside is service being every single time pretty slow!

Doesn't *look* that great inside and wasn't overly impressed with the sushi or the service, alas. Still, friends rave about this place so will give it another go at some point I'm sure...

I last visited this restaurant approx 6 years ago and remembered it to be rather good, however a recent visit with friends (on my recommendation!) was nothing short of embarrassing. The problems begun upon our immediate arrival and gradually got worse - as an admirer of Japanese culture I specifically booked a floor seated table only to be told when... More

Looks unpromising from the outside, I walked past the place for years, but inside you will find a brilliant little place with a wide ranging menu. I love the sushi and the bento boxed and unexpected gem

We sat in one of the low tables and had to ask up to 3 times to have the table cleaned. They even brought the food and the table was dirty form previous customers and there were napkins and chopsticks that we were not sure who touch them before. The food is not bad although the chicken skewers were quite... More

The food in this place is cracking, the sushi and the Japanese curry etc are great. BUT the noodle dishes are at best average. If you stick with the sushi/sashimi side of things you're in the clear! However. The service. Dear Lord! If you go here to eat, get there for when it opens. Then you eat your dinner in... More

I pen this review with a heavy heart. My daughter chose go to Sapporo last Friday to celebrate getting good A levels and entry into University to study Medicine. We had been once before a year ago and we had a great experience. On this occasion however I can say it was one of our worst restaurant experiences. We ordered... More
