The best in town, from Salmon roses to tempura prawns. On a Mondays to Wednesday eat as much as you can.

Oh dear! Such a disappointment! The food was overcooked and tasteless and the service was abysmal. An absolute worst review that I hope to ever report on... We ordered Spring rolls, Chicken wings, Duck and Singapore Noodles. The food took nearly 40 minutes to arrive and the restaurant was empty! When the food arrived it was overcooked, dry and tasteless. The staff spent their night flitting into the bar area to smoke and the decor was dire!!! We will definitely NEVER return...

This restaurant has lost its Asian authenticity and is only surviving due to the Sushi Specials it has, which in it self isn't bad admittedly. The Asian vibe isn't there and has become more European, now with an Entertainer ( which I think is a bit much).

The menu is good and the prices reasonable. Well prepared food and large portions. It will not rock your socks off, but it is worth a try. You have a nice view over the sea and it has a relaxing ambiance. They offer Sushi buffets at a very good price.

Decided to try their Eat All You Can Buffet as friends kept raving about it. Why, I don't know.

The sushi is not terribly awful, but not great either, really just edible, bulked out with lots of rice, springrolls were truly awful, and beware if you order or take something and don't like it or can't finish it you will be charged at the normal price for it, so although you think you've got a bargain in all you can eat sushi, don't be tempted to order too much all at once. I was not overly impressed with their sushi so did not eat any more than I would normally eat and if you work out the cost per piece ratio then the buffet was not a bargain for me.

They also don't tell you beforehand that the chefs close up the sushi bar at 9.30pm.

Staff was helpful and attentive, but the overall impression of the place was that it needed a really, really good clean.

Unfortunately, for me nothing special, so I won't be back, and really can't recommend this place to anyone.
