sushi is very average. the sushi conveyor belt area smells heavily of fish or something else. also hugely lacking in variety. also, R22 for a 540ml can of coke????!!!! while next door at PnP it's R16 for an entire 2L?

Extremely sloppy service by too many waiters, who showed little or nor interest in the food or the clientele. Large pale omelette occupied almost the entire plate, with three dried up pieces of haloumi on top. Not good.

Had a scrumptious breakfast which was heavenly. Fresh ingredients and very tasty. Service was good as well and exceptional value for money. Needs a “zhoosh” though. Scuffed furniture, worn cushion covers and a very well worn floor detracts from what a lovely place this is!

Ordered "Soft and Creamy" scrambled eggs - got hard and not creamed broken omelette. The eggs had not been introduced to a whisk or even a fork. 1st coffee cold - second was fine. The store was busy but lacked attention to detail.

New management and things have slipped. Really unfortunate as used to be a bit of a hidden gem. Coffee no longer what it was, management attentiveness seems to have slipped. Will try again, sad to see it happen!
