Mainly focused on asian dishes, Tenji is the place to go if you want unlimited sushi for a good price. Prices vary, we went there on a sunday lunch, the price was around £10. Pros: You can choose between Japanese, Chinese and Indian cuisines and...More

We have been many times and go for a relaxed informal dinning experience. The food is good quality and value for money. The staff leave you alone which I like but are more than happy to assist with anything. They are great with our kids...More

Been several years since I last ate here and recent trip was a bit disappointing - nothing truly bad, but food was on the bland side and the staff appeared to be doing just enough to be OK, but no more. Just didn't feel like...More

I think it's very misleading to market this restaurant as a Japanese one. To start with Japanese food buffet consists of a a VERY limited selection of absolute basic sushi (a couple of which are simply rice packed with mayo). That's it. One can order...More

A little out of town, worth the walk, or very short drive. Don't rush and savour the Far East at leisure. The Sushi and Sashimi offering is a full buffet by itself, then there's the Dim Sum menu - everything made to order, very fresh...More
