Willoughby is a must visit for sushi lovers. The sushi is always fresh and fantastic. The hot dishes (salmon and fish and chips) are also good. Service is brisk, and its an altogether great experience.

This is an excellent place for sea food. Service is great. They offer complimentary wine while you wait to be seated. We ordered a combination of oysters natural and New Orleans (baked with crumbs). They were delicious. I have never eaten such large oysters. Apparently...More
