If you want to enjoy your food, you should definitely try it. Although is is situated in a mall, they offer very tasty food, from the sushi to the meat, they have it all and at a very good price.

The sushi was divine and I would go back for the food. The experience was ruined by slow service and unfriendly staff.

Excellent food! Caters from the meat eater to the sushi lover. Rock shrimp tempura roll is something to try. Ask for the ponzo sauce with a little bit of chilli

One of my favourites in Joburg. Great service and atmosphere especially in summer and spring. Great views of Mandel Square and Nelson Mandela statue. The Sushi is a must to have, you won't be disappointed. A bit pricey but that's normal for Sandton.

Fantastic sushi with weird and wonderful choices! I had a platter with nearly ever type of sushi on tap! Great value for money too!

Hi there. It depends on what you are in the mood for. The glass box in front has a vibey atmosphere and has great views of Nelson Mandela Square. The cafe section in the mall is more intimate and quiet. Hope that helps.

Hi! We try to accommodate Halaal as best we can. We do not have any pork on our menu or alcohol in our sauces and we do offer a Halaal Soy sauce upon request. Thanks
