Great place to grab a quick meal with high quality sushi. The dish has classics, but most of the menu is pretty out of the box. Friendly crowd and central location.

Hands down the best sushi in Cape Town. The legendary chef Papa San has never disappointed with his exceptional quality sushi. All the dishes are brilliant. Try the pannacotta dessert.
