Went a couple of weeks ago with my husband. They are not Japanese, the food is not Japanese. Sushi is not made with raw fish, even Supermarket sushi is. Anything resembling Japanese was sold out! We didn't eat there, ended up leaving and going to Sainsbury's to order 2 hot pizzas instead.
Will never set my feet here again. A disgrace to sushi and Japanese food.

This was our first visit to a Japanese restaurant, after visiting Miso we’ll certainly be going to more.

Don’t go by the external appearance, the blinds were closed and we wondered if it was open. But once inside it was quite busy and the staff were very welcoming.

I had a pork bento box. The pork was succulent and with the other items the combination was delicious!

Overall it was very good value and if we lived closer we would regularly come her.

I’ve been to Miso a fair few times now and often recommend it to others. The decor inside is nice, although the tables look a little tired, but the food is what keeps me going back. I’ve only ever tried the veggie options (my other half is vegan and they cater for him too). The pumpkin korroke are great, along with the edamame for starters, and my favourite main is the tofu katsu curry. Don’t expect fast food, this is the ideal place to visit with friends as it is laid back, with good service that does not make you feel rushed in the slightest. We’ve never had to book as it is easy enough to get a table.

This place is "OK" at best considering its the only Japanese restaurant around, and is definitely not a notch on authentic Japanese food.

Gyoza arent pan fried as you would expect them to be (this is how they are automatically served in Japan or indeed in most Japanese restaurants worldwide), but instead are rather lazily deep fried ("age" gyoza) like you find in Chinese restaurants.

They add these deep fried gyoza into ramen, which is counterintuitive - why put something made to be crispy into a broth to just get soggy and weird? You would expect then to boil or pan fry the ramen like every other Japanese restaurant in the world does. Maybe they are accommodating for the tastes of people in Stoke?

The ramen broth lacks the umami punch that you usually get from the broth and tastes more like cheap pre-mix. Alarm bells should have rung the authenticity when the menu didn't state the type of broth the ramen used (e.g Shio/Tonkotsu/Miso/Shoyu etc).

None of the food is overly impressive, but it's edible. If this is your first experience of Japanese food then you will probably enjoy it as you won't have anything to compare to.
