From the outside, it doesn't look amazing, but the food was really excellent. The sushi was quite expensive, but then you get what you pay for! All the food was lovely, and excellent service!

A small Japanese restaurant at the edge of the town centre. The lunchtime £12 Bento box was excellent with good variety (soup, gyoza, sushi, tempura, teriyaki) and Japanese green tea of equally high quality. Overall the menu is fairly pricey so be prepared to pay for the quality.

Real Japanese food - fresh variety of sushi with lots of ginger and wasabi. Good miso soup. Nice tempura. A bit pricey, but then fresh, raw fish would be, I guess. So this is sort of reassuring. Unpretentious little place - a treat for anyone who wants a bit of real Japanese cuisine and not the oily wagamamachain/chinese noodle bar stuff.

This is a lovely little cosy restaurant, needs a lick of paint to brighten it up though. The menu is a good selection Inc noodles, ramen and sushi. Although I thoughtful food was really lovely, it was too expensive to get carried away and order loads...so we managed a two course only with no sides and the food was so good I really did want more. ..as full as I was. I will definitely return and recommend.

The food is good but very expensive.

Strange that they encourage tipping although the restaurant is Japanese. In Japan tipping is culturally not encouraged.

VAT is added on top of the menu prices and this markes s huge impact on the bill.

In fairness the VAT amount is well highlighted on the menu.
