Having been here many years ago it was long since due a visit. My son loves a plate of noodles so we stopped in. It's a very informal feel. We were greated enthusiastically. We both chose the chicken udon. As it is an open kitchen the smells are wonderful. The portion is generous but not too much. Fresh ginger mingled... More

I remain a regular visitor to this terrific establishment and can invariably be found reading the Saturday news and tucking in to their mixed sashimi for an early lunch. I am mainly submitting these comments to off-set some of the negative comments made by some previous reviewers. The main negatives seem to to come from those who (I am guessing)... More

We have been going to this place for years and we love it. The food is amazing, consistently excellent dishes are the gyoza, which come in pork or vegetable, the sashimi, the vegetable tempura, the spicy vegetable stir fry, the egg fried rice and the kimchee. Friends have tried and loved the eel, the sushi and the ramon. The hot... More

I've been many Japanese restaurants in Brighton, and I would say it is the best... The owner and staff are friendly, and the dishes are hot and tasty!!! Vegetarian and vegan menu are available. My favourite is Pork Katsu Curry. Although they serve tasty foods, the restaurant is quite small and it's always very busy, so booking is recommended.

Try the Brighton roll or the Bento box. Fresh and imaginative. Great prices. Excellent value. Friendly people. You'll be back. A standard lunch spot for take away. Really a mini supermarket with a kitchen.

This place was a Chinese kitchen a few years ago, and great. Japanese now, it seems confused. Two dishes; spice beef and 'seafood' curry was totally disgusting. At £22 I was appalled. With one dish arriving a full 10 minutes before mine, I couldn't even eat mine, and I was starving. The 'seafood' was 3 frozen, breaded prawns on a... More

I have never been to Japan so can't comment on how original and authentic this eaterie is but it is certainly the best Brighton has to offer and it has been going strong for as long as I have. Even living in the city. Go for the food not the decor! Good for groups. We were 8. Good menu for... More

Time-consuming as the service and payment was slow. And thus, I have never been there for the second times. Their foods are reasonably priced. Was closed 9 out of 10 whenever I walk past.

Did not realise there was a restaurant above the Chinese supermarket in the laines until yesterday when my boyfriend pointed it out, and what a great find! The appearance is far from inviting on the outside and the interior is very basic, buts what's important is the food, and it is so good. Great value for money and good selection... More

Lovely food and great value. I went with family last Sunday for lunch. We ordered a variety of dishes including tuna and salmon sashimi. It was all delicious. If you book ask for a table by the window so you can people watch.
