Food was absolutely delicious, couldn’t fault it one bit. The way of ordering was fantastic, and extremely covid friendly. Sushi, sashimi and nigiri were so well made and tasted beautiful. Staff extremely friendly and very helpful. The Arsenal posters ‘spot Mr Tenakaichi’ in the bathrooms were a nice touch. Thankyou for a lovely evening!

This is definitely the best sushi place in Cardiff! The food is always delicious with plenty of options. The place is often busy but we have always found a table which is great since they are only opened in the evening. Even though the service might have been a little bit inattentive in the past, it is currently much better and the staff is much friendlier.
