    Good value. “Selection” of cocktails in offer was not true as there was only one cocktail type given. Service was good but could be slightly better by being less intrusive.

    It was our first experience in a Japanese restaurant. So relied heavily on the recommendations of our waiter. He didn’t let us down. We thoroughly enjoyed it & would definitely go there again.

    We have had a nigh out with my boyfriend. Great modern food, amazing service. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

    Bad experience overall. Quality of food was great, but we had to wait at least 30 minutes for each plate. We actually had to ask for our orders to arrive, since in the kitchen they got lost somewhere. At the end, we did not even receive everything we had ordered, even if what we had not received was in the final bill. The waitress (Elly) was kind and removed the dish we had not received, but this is not the kind of standard you expect for such a price and from such a well known place. Very disappointing.

    Had the £30 dinner and drink offer. No choice of cocktail and dessert was ample and good but first 2 courses were rather small plates.

    Atmosphere, it's quite impacting. Food was good, tasty and well presented.
