Great food at reasonable prices. Consistently good.Katsu curry is a favourite. Blue Passion cocktails are great, but only when they make them with crushed ice!

Eat here a lot and the food is always very good. Service is also good but have only been at off peak times. Particularly recommend: Yakisoba, Katsu curry, red and green curries, and my favourite Gyosa.

Lovely sushi and dim sum at fantastic prices. Fresh fish that just melts in your mouth. Service is a little slow but well worth the wait. Recommend that you book a table if going at the weekend.
