“Best in Eastbourne”
Reviewed 28 February 2009

I hate to share the good news for fear of struggling to get a table in the future (at the moment the place is almost empty which makes for a quiet and relaxing dining experience) but at the same time want to make sure they survive into the future so they can continue to provide me wth such great food.

The only place in Eastbourne to get authentic sushi (which is super-fresh and excellent) and great tasting Thai food, which is all prepared fresh from your order. Love it all and the service is friendly and speedy. Good selection of wines, set-menus (if you don't know what to order) and did i mention the great sushi?

it's incredibly well-priced as well, for example 3 sushi dishes, 2 thai meat dishes, 1 vegetable dish, 1 rice dish for 2 people and a bottle of wine came to only £35. fantastic value. Have eaten there on many occasions with no bad after-effects (which is not what i can say for a few michelin-starred restaurants i've eaten in recently!)

“Undiscovered gem - fantastic food!”
Reviewed 1 December 2008

This restaurant is tucked in the middle of the main road that seems to have most of Eastbourne's restaurants. It serves Thai and japanese food. I didn't have high expectations as it wasn't very crowded to say the least when we arrived on a Friday but my husband was determined to have some sushi. However, we were very pleasantly surprised - we came away thinking that this is an undiscovered gem of eastbourne. My husband had a bento box but asked for it to be without chicken. They replaced the chicken with salmon and tailored the dish for him - the portions were massive! I had a thai dish and was equally impressed. The quality was very high and you could tell it was freshly prepared. This was the real deal.
The waitress was very friendly - interesting and interested - and made us feel very welcome but without overcrowding us. at the end of the meal they gave us fortune cookies (a nice touch) and some invaluable advice on local attractions.
