The setting in a former pub with log fire but modern interior has a lot going for it. Sadly the food and service was disappointing. The handrolls (salmon and avocado) were tasty and fresh, but we also ordered salmon only handrolls for one of our...More

My vegetable ramen was like a cuppa soup, thin and tasteless , heavy on broccoli with the bizarre addition of a quartered cherry tomato , The vegetable tempura could have been fried in a Glasgow chip shop and coated my teeth like a battered mars...More

Sadly the staff's knowledge of the menu, which I feel is important for this type of restaurant was sadly lacking. This made the ordering difficult to say the least. This experience was followed by the last main course (and there were only four) arriving 30...More

Good quality sushi but a little bit boring. When asked to buy miso soup they increased the price that was written on the menu as it was 'the evening' The restaurant seemed empty and the atmosphere was not great.

This was the best sashimi I ever ate outside Japan. Never expected it in a top tourist destination like Portobello Road. Well worth the money. The Itsu at the tube station is no competition for this one. Never had sea bass that fresh. Great service,...More

Absolutely delicious food, very friendly and helpful staff, charming and elegant atmosphere, great service, honest prices (maybe slightly expensive but are money very well spent). I'll definitely go back there again.
