I asked for a table for one, and although there were plenty of free tables I was ‘offered a seat at the bar’. Maddening. I like to eat at a table. I ordered two starters. The food was OK, vastly overpriced, i.e. R160 for one...More

Wonderful sushi with fresh fish, great cocktails and an inviting atmosphere. We sat at the sushi bar and loved watching the chef do his magic. The staff could definitely be in a reality show - we were entertained and loved our food. It's a small...More

The atmosphere leads your mind to Japan - it is very quiet and dimmed. The menu is quite authentic - and you really have to have some kind of sushi-knowledge to know what the individual dishes are. I had a splendid fish of the day.

A filling dining option for regular folks on a night out, but an absolute shrine to a discerning sushi and sashimi-loving palate. The new menu is a distinct, qualified combination of dishes – worthy of ushering a novice into the realm of fresh seafood; and...More

This almost excellent Japanese restaurant is really good. They really do import the wasabi from Japan. They do a great job on everything we had - and we had a lot. The eccentric owner (from California) does a good job and understands the "sushi way"....More
