Flying the flag for kawaii (cute) culture, this Japanese caff on Exmouth Market is decked out with butterfly-shaped chandeliers, heart-shaped coasters and all manner of other pink or cutsie things. It may be small, but the menu is long, listing everything from donburi to curry, bento or noodle dishes.

A filling bowl of oyakodon saw generous chunks of chicken encased in sweetened just-set egg atop a steaming bowl of rice – a snip at £7.50. There’s also a good range of sweet treats with Japanese flavourings, such as green tea cake, and drinks including thick yuzu milkshake.

The sushi is really good and the staff is super friendly. We also had 2 of the pork dishes and I can't wait to have them again soon! They even made a special dairy free soya yoghurt birthday cake for my girlfriend's birthday. They really make an effort to make sure you have a good time and they even did some party poppers outside when we left the restaurant! It's a great place with really good food and a perfect atmosphere! I'm definitely going more often.
