This is a regular so I get slightly better service, may need to wait a bit for a table but the counter can be fun. Nice japanese food, ask for the katsu curry sauce thicker but one of the best tasting. Good tempura, my friends...More

I had tempura prawns and vegetables withJapanese prawn and potato curry to follow, was lovely. The staff are very friendly and the bloke who loves Welsh rugby (I don't know his name) is excellent at his job.

A place like this is a rare find, where one could have delicious, fresh and affordable bento sets comprising a good combination of everything commonly found in Japanese restaurants. The service is quick and efficient, making it a very good lunch spot. Do not let...More

We visit about once a month. The sushi is great and definitely a lovely after work place. The service is pretty poor, as long as you are not in a rush and with fussy clients then you should definitely try it. Best sushi in the...More
