My wife and I absolutely loved the sushi platter created by chef Michael. This hubby and wife team make a wonderful combo and were super friendly and informative. I needed some alterations to some of the dish and they were most accommodating. We'll most definitely...be back and we're telling all our mates about the place. Address still listed as Kommetjie Road, maybe update to Recreation Road. Mike and JanineMore

I popped in for a Midweek dinner on my way home from work. Not too many people in at the time, service was quick and efficient. I enjoyed the meal.

Had dinner here tonight. We were the only diners. My God this place should be full. The interaction with the owner and waiter was amazing. Well done. We will most certainly be back. Food and service top notch.

The sushi is very good, the home-made pickled ginger was the best I ever had. The floor a little sticky. The chinese dishes are ok. I loved the eggplant in chilli sauce, the broccoli in garlic sauce was not special. Tge kom pou chicken was...nice but salty. The noodles are home-made but thick, they are typically for a specific region in China. Not the regular chowmein. The owner is a very friendly and open person. The service was good.More

A warm welcome by lovely Thandi who provided knowledgeable menu advice and attentive hosting. Co-owned by Maxine and Michael (Chef) who have created a really good ambience and trendy setting. Really scrumptious sushi! ps. Michael's gift is a must

Our family went to the restaurant since everyone was raving about the sushi. Well they where right the sushi was great, fresh and tasty. Will I return NO. Floors was sticky, table was not wiped down. The kids play area was not clean either.... Over...all food was good but the place need a good clean.More

Six of us were welcomed by the friendly staff and even though we haven't been to this restaurant for six months we were recognised and made to feel they were pleased to see us again. The sushi is amazing and four of us ordered one...of the platters on special. It was excellent value for money. In addition we had a salmon hand roll which I highly recommend. The other two guests chose from the Chinese menu - tempura prawns and sweet and sour chicken and they too were delighted with their meals. Afterwards Michael, the Chef, came out to greet us and to make sure we'd enjoyed ourselves. He also offered us Saki on the house which was a novel experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. The service from our waiter was excellent. He was friendly, attentive and efficient and made sure all our needs were met. Dining here was a real treat as our hosts were clearly passionate about their restaurant and their food. The background music was also very pleasant and not so loud that you could not enjoy dinner time conversation. I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant in Fish Hoek.More

Took four friends for birthday celebration to Tigerlily after hearing good reviews. This family-run restaurant is colourfully decorated and has quite pleasant and tranquil atmosphere at lunchtime. It is obviously more popular at night. Our party ordered rice and noodles to share with prawns, chicken...and pork dishes. If you are used to getting crispy pork pieces you will be taken by surprise when pork meatballs arrive - unfortunately it was not to the liking of our party. Mother explained it was the way it was cooked in her part of China. The sizzling prawns were large and good as was the black bean chicken and the chilli chicken dish (requested reduced chilli!). All in all we had a good first encounter and will no doubt visit there again!More

Service was most attentive when we arrived, but degenerated into ignoring us by the time we left. Sushi and sashimi starters were fresh and excellent. Two of the three main courses were good. The sweet and sour pork was comprised of a few rock hard...blocks of pork in sauce. Steamed rice was stale. Nice clean ambienceMore
