Reasonable priced Japanese, sushi was good, staff seemed inexperienced. Agedashi tofu was not that great, but other dishes were fine.

Dear Merpaulien, I have asked my staff about this incident in details. They confirmed that you did not receive the prawn tempura avocado roll, and nor were you charged for it. This is because the staff forgot to include it in the order, and for...More
