Amazing food. I ordered box to taste some disches in one. Soup was the best!

We do love the food here and prices are not too bad. We always order too much though like extra Maki or Gyoza, but they’re happy to bag up leftovers to take home. Long tables are set out like a student canteen, with long benches, so not the most comfortable.

Excellent sushi and brilliant service, as always! They have rearranged the restaurant to maintain social distancing between customers, and the staff all had appropriate PPE, so it all felt very safe to be there. We were very happy to visit after it had been closed for so long during lockdown, and look forward to going again soon.
