I have been here a number of times, and am always left disappointed with the customer service. They don't even attempt to put on a fake smile when serving you. On one occasion, they ran out of wine... FIne, I thought I'll run to a pub and get a bottle and bring it back. They charged corkage for this! Even... More

The staff cannot speak fluent English therefore it is really difficult to communicate with them. Ordering is quite tricky as they do not understand 96% of what you are saying! The sushi buffet has an okay selection, wouldn't say massive but enough. The one off hot food takes ages to come out. When my hot food came out it was... More

For the price and location, the food was great and we could order as much as we wanted! It's better than Yo Shushi put it that way! I would recommend going mid week as I suspect it can get quite busy on the weekend! No issues with staff. Attentive and helped with the menu when asking questions.

Pretty much a joke from start to finish - wouldn't be surprised if we were filmed for a prank show. Service staff are rude and inept - the waiter suggested I drink tap water after he didn't have the first three things I tried to order to drink. They couldn't be bothered to make any cocktails and were serving any... More

We had the worst service here. We were asked if we wanted to sit at a table or bar, we said table and they still sat us at the bar. Then it took quite a while for someone to come back and take our drink order, we ordered drinks, an appetizer and our rolls all at the same time. Our... More

Me and my wife went there, food was average, but by far the worst service I've ever had, there was a sign saying 7 days a week 20% discount when payed with cash, the female waitress being very rude when we bring it up says, in very broken English that they just haven't pulled the advertisement down witch was posted...

Visited on Wed 30 September around lunch time. Food was average, fine for the price. However upon coming to pay I put my card on the table and the waitress took my card away from the table before returning after a few minutes with my card and the card machine. At the time I did think this was a bit... More

I was in this restaurant for lunch with some friends. We took the sushi, very good, especially salmon, delicious. The ramen was very much appreciated, Chili version is really spicy and very difficult to finish it, next time probably I will opt for a less spicy version. Friendly staff, prices average for London.

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
