I don't know if it's the best sushi in Cape Town since I am just visitor, but they do have a very good taste of sushi. I was given a glass of free wine while standing in the queue. Ordered oyster shot, I didn't expect the taste could be that good. It was a busy night but the food came... More

Excellent seafood and the best brownie with Hazelnuts for dessert in a verry relaxed setting where even a solo diner could feel comfortable

So you que. (They did offer a glass of wine while we waited). And yes it's in the middle of the V&A Waterfront mall. Not just at the mall, literally in the mall, under and escalator. So no points for that experience. However, they deliver on the food for sure! That sushi chef needs an award! Best sushi in town!

Had a really good lunch with friends here. Service is brisk and friendly and the food was of a good standard. I had baby sole and it was delicious. The restaurant is in the Victoria Wharf Mall itself and my theory is that move away from the actual waterfront and quality and value increases substantially. I am sure it's not... More

In the middle of a busy passage in the busy Waterfront, it's not about the ambience; it's about the sushi. Why have I, a lover of sushi and frequent visitor to Cape Town, never eaten here before? Because I've never had the patience to stand in the interminable queues. But today I saw 2 empty seats at a high bank,... More

Well trained staff. Very good food. Highly recommend. The only downside to this restaurant is that it is in a shopping mall. Don't let that deter you.

Hard to express my appreciation for this luncheon meal. Two glasses of wine, Japanese tertiki and some tempura prawns was a delight to eat. You have to line up to be seated. A very busy restaurant mind you.

Had to wait a bit to get in but was worth it. Delicious food and quick service. We had sushi which was good: large pieces of fish in the filling and thin rice. Sashimi was cut nicely and fish was fresh.

My wife and I had sushi here a couple times. Very fresh and generally tasty. Prawn tempura was too bready but otherwise food was good. No views as the place is located inside the Waterfront mall. Service is good and fun for people watching.
