“Excellent Sushi Place...”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Visited here on a Sunday for lunch.

The place was really quiet because of the time of day, service was spot on, and I got the impression it wouldn't have been affected too much had it been busy.

We ordered loads (dragon roll, sweet potato roll, edamame, gyoza, and tempura), and it all arrived presented beautifully. Everything was superb.

I wouldn't say this place was cheap, but I do think you get a lot for your money. The dragon roll was not only the best I've had, but also the biggest. Some nice wee extras were thrown in like a side of rice and some miso soup, good touch.

The layout of the restaurant was nice too, didn't feel too close to other tables etc, and the place seemed really relaxed and just a pleasant place to spend some time for dinner/lunch.

For sushi fans it comes highly recommended, don't think there is much better in Edinburgh.

We'll be back.

A beautifully quaint restaurant in a lovely part of Edinburgh serving tasty, fresh and stunningly handmade sushi and noodle dishes.

“Best Gyoza in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I am a huge fan of Japanese food and I have been to most of the Japanese restuarants in Edinburgh. I almost always order Gyoza and these dumplings are amazing! The rest of the food was fabulous too, really fresh tasting and a great varied menu with seasonal specials.
