Absolutely gorgeous sushi, and very reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and service was really quick. It is a laid back, simple and cosy place. Strongly recommend it.

Amazing food - we waited about 50 minutes for it but the food was amazing, beer was good. Could not complain. As someone who has high standards, this place is definitely worth a visit and also very reasonable priced.

We received a recommendation from the Desk Agent at our hotel and it didn't disappoint. My husband chose some more traditional items on the menu being that he is a little more picky then me. I can say I was glad we left the kids...More
