We decided to dine here because of the plethora of rave reviews and despite the very basic feel of this cafe, were really looking forward to our meals. Unfortunately it appeared as though management had placed a young untrained person on the counter, who desperately struggled to juggle the dine in customers, phone orders, take away orders and serve the...

We sat down to have lunch, but after looking at the menu we decided it was too expensive. We bought 3 sushi rolls for takeaway and walked off. The sushi was ok, nothing that great. I'm not sure I'll give this place another chance. I'd much rather go to sushi edo down the road.

Tsuru is my go-to place for sushi on the run. Busy day ahead I'll often grab their freshly cooked / prepared sushi in the morning on my way to work. Always great tasting and thoroughly satisfying. Their staff are always friendly and efficient. Highly recommended

Grabbed some takeaway sushi rolls for lunch & was not disappointed. At the time the choice was a little limited but that may been because of my late lunch (1.45pm). Clean, fresh & would go back again. Close to Studio Pilates Ashgrove for a post workout feed 👍

The sushi there is all made to order, the fish used is thick, juicy and flavoursome. The wait time was normal but the staff were nice and friendly. Will definitely visit again ! :)
