Try the Brighton roll or the Bento box. Fresh and imaginative. Great prices. Excellent value. Friendly people. You'll be back. A standard lunch spot for take away. Really a mini supermarket with a kitchen.

This place was a Chinese kitchen a few years ago, and great. Japanese now, it seems confused. Two dishes; spice beef and 'seafood' curry was totally disgusting. At £22 I was appalled. With one dish arriving a full 10 minutes before mine, I couldn't even eat mine, and I was starving. The 'seafood' was 3 frozen, breaded prawns on a... More

I have never been to Japan so can't comment on how original and authentic this eaterie is but it is certainly the best Brighton has to offer and it has been going strong for as long as I have. Even living in the city. Go for the food not the decor! Good for groups. We were 8. Good menu for... More

Time-consuming as the service and payment was slow. And thus, I have never been there for the second times. Their foods are reasonably priced. Was closed 9 out of 10 whenever I walk past.

Did not realise there was a restaurant above the Chinese supermarket in the laines until yesterday when my boyfriend pointed it out, and what a great find! The appearance is far from inviting on the outside and the interior is very basic, buts what's important is the food, and it is so good. Great value for money and good selection... More

Lovely food and great value. I went with family last Sunday for lunch. We ordered a variety of dishes including tuna and salmon sashimi. It was all delicious. If you book ask for a table by the window so you can people watch.

Been there twice now and love it. This time we had the pork tonkatsu and it was as close as it gets to the ones we had in Asia. Service was good and the open kitchen gives it a great feel. Only grudge would be they need to extend their opening hours. But if you like asian food it's a... More

Let's face it this place isn't going to win awards for its decor but it has a loveable, authentic, charm. We had dinner on a Saturday evening and the place was filled to the brim. There was a great atmosphere and the waitresses were all friendly. We ordered gyozas and calamari to start. The gyozas were delicious and plentiful. The... More

we went as a party of ten. It was a busy night for them but they still gave great service. The food as always is excellent. I have never had a bad meal there.

Enjoyed our lunch here today. Crispy and delicious Katsu chicken, great fried pork with beansprouts and excellent sushi. Friendly staff and very reasonably priced. It was full when we left so glad we had decided on an early lunch. Will go back.
