I would doubt the authenticity of this establishment. Being involved in the local area, there've been tales of their racking up huge debts and arranging a family takeover of the premises, before declaring the previous holding company bankrupt - leaving suppliers severely out of pocket and keeping all funds. Coincidentally, the food was awful when we attended in January. AVOID

Really disappointing. My main was cold and when I told the maitre'd, he argued and was reluctant to change it. After 5 minutes of discussion he did but this took the best part of fifteen minutes by which point my stunning boyfriend had finished his main. Generally, the food was overpriced and there was no real atmosphere. Do yourself a favour and give this place a miss.

Very poor value. Sushi incredibly overpriced for very run of the mill food. £6 for two salmon nigiri is just ridiculous. Sashimi £10 for 3 pieces - ludicrous - much more expensive than top end japanese restaurants in central london. Not justified by dated decor and provincial restaurant feel. This is a shame as it has the potential to be a solid, family run neighbourhood restaurant. Staff are lovely if a little over attentive (the only thing they didn't do was feed us our food!). £120 for a very ordinary meal - we will not return.


We had the special three-course menu. Everything was great, including the slightly eccentric service. I suspect next time if we go from the a la carte menu the score might be higher. A nice night.
