Drooped by twice for lunch had some sushi and teriyaki salmon both delicious at reasonable prices. Sides were good I had some fried lotus roots chips that was a first for me, yummy! If I worked or lived near here I would eat here often.

Nice to go to something that isn't a chain restaurant. Service was fast and food was good, very filling too! Would come again to try other items from the menu.

I eat in this restaurant regularly. It has a great selection of Bento Lunch boxes, and an extensive sake menu. worth checking out. It is one of two great sushi places near islington green. The second is very traditional, and also excellent.
