Sushi always of a very high standard. Location is in the middle of the mall and always massive queues. Could easily wait more than 30min to get seated.

Been to Willoughby several times with friends and had great experiences here. Sushi is excellent with some interesting dishes! Loved the shotglass with tequila, raw quails egg with tobasco is amazing! Just know there is no booking so you might have a que but it's worth it! Great vibe, helpful staff and worthy experience!

This restaurant is in a shopping centre with no view or atmosphere but it is a great place to eat. A bit pricy but everything it good. I had sushi and tempura prawns. Great!

Ok it's in a shopping mall rather than the waterfront BUT the food is exceptional. No booking but a glass of wine whilst you wait and turnover is brisk. People in the know go to Willoughby for fresh seafood. They have a scheme to add to your bill to provide education for the disadvantaged.

The best place to eat sushi in Cape Town! You might have to queue up for a table, but it's well worth a wait! If you've been once, you'll be back for more!

Excellent fish but usually have to wait for a table as they don't accept reservations. Also good for sushi lovers. The restaurant is located inside the shopping mall so no nice views.

W is always a great place in the busy and vibey waterfront. The food is high quality and the long queue to get a seat says it all.

Attentive waiting staff who Explained the menu and advised. We were given a wine taster in the queue which was very short when we went but we had seen previously to be really long which suggests it is good! We're not disappointed. Great starters and mains from the sushi menu. A lively vibrant place to eat in Victoria Warf. Not... More
