The atmosphere, service and food excellent. Thursday night and the place was buzzing. Although the restaurant was so busy the service and food was excellent. We will definitely be back.

After eating pathetic sushi at another restaurant in the Umhlanga area (note the poor review) we left that restaurant and made a beeline to Bite Your Tongue and was not disappointed. We have been regulars there for about 10 years and consistency is proof that I will not waste my time going ANYWHERE else for sushi!! Great work guys and... More

I have eaten prawn fried rice all over the world including Thailand. Chef Bheki at Bite Your Tongue consistently makes the best prawn fried rice we have ever had.

We went to "bite your tongue" for Sweet and sour pork, to to take away for our office staff. We ordered 4 portions, 2 with rice, 2 with noodles. All four portions were bland, had no flavour. We won't go back in a hurry.

A compact, no frills asian / shushi restaurant with a large choice on the menu and attentive service. Well worth a visit.

We chose Bite Your Tounge based on the below reviews. Unfortunately we were terribly disappointed. Our sushi arrived fairly quickly after our order, however it was tasteless. The Wasabi was bland and looked like it was leftover by the previous customers. Our spring rolls were definitely old and smelled so bad we didn't even dare taste it. All in all... More

Its casual and has a home like feeling. The sushi and meals are abaolutely divine. Favourites are the tokyo rolls, prawn towers, tempura hand roll and the meals lamb teriyaki with egg fried rice! No other sushi compared. A bit pricy which limits ordering but enjoyed it.

I have been buying sushi from Bite your tongue for years now. I have built up a friendship with the staff because of my frequent visits. Good sushi at half the price. I usually have , Salmon Roses, Salmon sashimi, avo and prawn salad, tuna salad, tokyo rolls and cucumber rolls.
