Food here is always fresh and tasty! Staff are always pleasant, knowledgeable and obliging ( unlike the other Japanese in the area) Hard to get in at times as it's so good 😊 so ensure you book!

The sashimi is always fresh and the grilled eggplant and yakitori skewers are divine! The decor is calming and lovely.

Ordered take away with some friends, and was just as happy as always. We ordered a bunch of things to share, which were ready in 20 minutes, which I think is pretty great (ordered at about 6.15pm). Food included sushi and sashimi, Japanese pancake, tempura vegetables, chicken skewers and eggplant. All was so yummy, you can just tell the quality... More

We had an enjoyable experience Japanese style! Great service, lovely ambience, delicious food. The staff were very good at explaining the dishes. They were prompt with service and advice. The serves were generous, fresh and appealing to the palate.

We dine here often as it is the best Japanese food in the area. A reasonable range and always beautiful - they don't try to do too much. Unlike Japan, restaurants here serve more than one specialty dish so you can choose without having to go from restaurant to restaurant.

The staff were very friendly and helped us choose the dishes best suited to us. Two of our NewZealand friends had not tried Japanese food before they were very impressed
