Very nice food good sized portions. Great entertainment suitable for all ages. Very friendly staff. Only thing that could be better would be to have some real Japanese staff. But on the whole was a great night and will defiantly go again.

Thoroughly entertaining throughout the evening but not intrusive if you do not wish to be entertained. Staff were welcoming and remembered us from our last visit 5 months ago. Food was excellent in both choice available and quality of cooking.

My family and I visited this restaurant in October, we did not have a table booked but we were still quickly seated. The meal was delicious and the chef was extremely entertaining, definitely worth a visit if you get the chance!

We hadn't booked a table when we arrived here early evening but the manager quickly did a spot of rearranging and managed to sit our family of four very promptly.
