Lovely food - well presented and the waitress was really helpful. It was only at the end we realised we'd been given the wrong sushi. Manager didn't seem that bothered about the mistake but gets four stars just for the food.

Visited before the theatre, everything is freshly cooked. Staff will help you with the menu if you are unsure. I have to say the food was all freshly cooked, piping hot and tasted incredible. Will definitely be visiting again very soon.
