My friend and I enjoyed dinner here after our gym workout. We enjoyed a sushi salad as well as a sushi platter. The service was polished and professional. We loved our dishes and the portions were generous. Ideal for a healthy, tasty meal.

This is very good value for money. The sweet and sour pork was the best I have tasted, and the four in our group seemed really to enjoy their starters and mains too. (The desserts were perhaps a little less successful.) The décor is modern...More
