The vegan sushi options here were great! My favourite by far was the tofu crunch! Service was good, vibe relaxed and trendy, food great and cocktails fresh and tasty!

Excellent steak, great crispy duck and actually good sushi, which we didn't expect from such a mixed menu. One of the best restaurants and very modestly priced for what it is. Service can be inconsistent, but again, not unusual or out of ordinary average.

Not sure what the question is. My experience was excellent, and none of the three of us had any problems with our food.
