The fish was fresh and very tasteful, and the variety on the menu was large. We ate there twice in our 7 day stay as it was so good.

Excellent sushi; great service and friendly staff all complemented by a wonderful lady who for the last 12 years has handed out free glasses of rose or sauvignon blanc to customers standing in line while juggling two bottles and four glasses. What a star!

This is a regular stop for me and my Cape Town family. We love sushi and there is definitely no better place to eat it in Cape Town. It's in the mall which is a pity but it's nicely done. Although there is no booked seating the line moves quickly as there are tables, counters and sushi bar seats and... More

Have been tens of times at the place and it's always very good. For me the best sushi in the world. Sometimes I go directly from Cape Town international to Willoughby to have one rainbow roll by Sam, the fantastic Chef. The appreciation to this restaurant has been passed on to two generations, so that my grand-children also learned to... More

We ate here four times in five days which is praise indeed. Can't book, but if you are queuing they come round with wine and glasses and offer you a drink. Best food in Cape Town - it was recommended by a resident.

Possibly one of the best restaurants in the V&A Waterfront. Always busy and with a queue but we'll worth the wait.

My wife and I had lots of fun eating there. Our waitress was helpful and full of energy. We ate ton of creative rolls and appetizers. All were a treat to our palettes.

The restaurant was recommended to us and is certainly worth a visit. Unfortunately you cannot book but are given a glass of wine while waiting. Once seated the service was quick, there is a good choice and dishes were well presented. The only downside is being in a shopping mall.
