Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visiting Buxton on family trip and popped in for sushi. It was amazing - tried the set salmon menu plus hot rolls and crispy rolls and avocado & crab salad and it was all amazing. Great service and fabulous experience. Would definitely return and recommend.

Really good sushi restaurant. The temaki, tempura, edamame beans and sashimi were of such high quality. The special rolls were so tasty and the service was great. Wish I lived here so could go every week!

The food we had was excellent. We had the lunch special (18 pieces of sushi and sashimi ) , spicy tempura prawns and, being greedy, one of the dragon rolls . The tempura was scrumptious, spicy but not too hot. The presentation and taste of...the other dishes was exceptional. We had over-ordered, but they gave us a bento box to take home the pieces we couldn’t manage. Was blown away by the quality. Will definitely be back.More

First time, and will definitely go back. Had the set platter for 2, and there was so much we took some home! I'm not a big fan of fish, so wasn't sure what I would like, and was definitely surprised at what I did like....Even managed chopsticks! The platter has a good range of different types of sushi which was perfect. Staff were absolutely lovely too. Perfect birthday night out for my partner, who is actually quarter Japanese 😁.More

Fabulous food! My partner and I ordered the large set meal for two, which comes with a starter of miso soup. The main is a large sushi and sashimi platter. There was a generous selection of various styles of sushi rolls, and some delicious sashimi....Even better, the restaurant happily boxed up our leftovers for us to take away. The service was friendly and efficient. We'd recommend this establishment to all sushi lovers, and will definitely be returning when we visit Buxton again.More

We went on a very quiet Sunday evening. We were the only ones in, on arrival. We decided on the set meal for two, as this gives a broad feel of what somewhere is all about. We were really tempted by udon noodles and Dragon...roll, but settled on the set for two. First, cons; The music is a bit weird! It's that royalty free stuff (which I totally get, having had a place myself for 13 years), but I'm sure you could get something that sounds more 'Japanese-y'? Beer at just shy of a fiver for a small bottle (but that's standard for restaurants). The trek to the toilets - nothing they can do about the building's layout - but it does come as a shock (especially on a full stomach). The waiter spoke very limited English, BUT my Japanese isn't as good as his English, so....... Now pro's. Setting is lovely, in fact very romantic, without being twee! Very clean, smart, attentive staff. Now then - the food. IT-WAS-AMAZING!!! We started with a bowl of miso soup, with little morsels of salmon and tofu. That set the standard, as we really wanted more. However, when we saw the platter, it was a good job we WERE hungry! Such a great.show of their skills, a work of art on a plate. Each morsel screamed flavour! We ummmed and ahhhhed our way through the whole thing, each mouthful as good as the first. We recently ate sushi in a respected restaurant in London, and this was as good. Despite my con observations, I couldn't possibly give this place any less than full marks. It won't be long before we go back. If you're thinking of going - just stop thinking, and GO!More

Have been here a few times before and it is always excellent everything is very fresh and colourful. We usually opt for the set meal for two and some seaweed salad as it is good value. with a variety of fish included. This time we...pre-ordered our meal as we knew we would be arriving after (pm as we were setting up for the Bakewell Mineral show before hand. We will be here again in a few weeks time for an event in Buxton.More

What a fantastic find! We were in Buxton for my son's 20th birthday and as a family we adore sushi. I used the online booking page and received a confirmation of our Saturday night reservation. At 7:30pm, we walked into a clean and well presented...restaurant and was warmly greeted and shown to our seats. The waiter was quick to ask if we would like drinks, and when he returned asked if was ready to order. Perfect. We took a few more minutes, and settled on the set meal for 1, and a set meal for 2. What was brought out was a delight to behold, and we thoroughly enjoyed every morsel. Well worth seeking out if you are in the area.More

We’ve only eaten in Japanese restaurants a couple of times so not experts in this cuisine at all but can safely say that this was one of the best meals out we’ve had in a long time. The sushi looked beautiful on the plate and...tasted amazing and the yakisoba and teriyaki were both packed full of flavour. Staff were all friendly and the restaurant although lit brighter than you’d usually expect was perfectly clean and pleasant. Only downside is the trek up several flights of stairs to visit the loo! Shame we don’t live closer so we could visit more often.More
