Been twice now and before I even left the 2nd time I was excited to come back. No thrills to look at but the food is brilliant, fresh and tasty. The highlight for me would be the long prawn tempura sushi roll (no 68 on...the menu). Teriyaki chicken bento box, ramen, seaweed salad. All so tasty and highly recommend. Can't wait to go back for more.More

First time here and nice experience. Miso soup with crispy chicken bento box and a side of Tuna sashimi. Really good and fantastic value for money. Taking wife and kids there tomorrow before we go to Van Gough exhibition.

Excellent and authentic food. Great portions and super value. Staff were really friendly. This is now my top lunch choice in Leicester. The choice of bento boxes is incredible and well suited to budget and appetite.

Love this place, best quality sushi and pan-asian in Leicester hands down. Chicken Katsu Don and Dragon Roll are my favourite dishes and they never disappoint.
