Customer delight is given at this very well run restaurant in the V&A in Cape Town. We were greeted by Lana front of house who offers a wine tasting whilst you are waiting for a table. We have been greeted by Lana on many visits...and what an asset Lana is to this restaurant. Our waiter for this visit was Jason B who gave exceptional customer service. Jason gave us lots of information about the menu and nothing was too much trouble.More

I have been coming to Willoughby on and off whenever I visit Cape Town over the last seven years. It never feels to disappoint. The food is all of a good standard and service as well.

Top notch service by our friendly well-spoken waitress and stunning sushi, too. We arrived at 12:30 and joined a short queue of eager patrons. The hostess offered us a small glass of crisp Chardonnay to enjoy while we waited for our table. The time passed...quickly and before we knew it we were seated. Quality of food is top-notch. Price of sushi and a glass of wine is more expensive than most South African sushi restaurants but definitely less expensive than top-notch New York sushi bars. We will definitely return on our next visit as this is by far our most favorite South African Sushi restaurant!More

A restaurant of this pedigree should not be doing take-out. Guests were left waiting. Sashimi was served warm. Long wait fir food to arrive because the kitchen was prepping take-out while guests were left watching their food being left on shelves. The quality was very...poor and due to the fast food culture overtaking the needs of the seated guests .. it was apparent that service and quality suffered. Getting the attention of staff was frustrating. Greed and perhaps not that interested in returning customers any longer. Stressful experience.More

Terrible service unfortunately, we waited over an hour for our food, with no communication from the waiters and no remorse. Such a shame as have been coming here for years, and is disappointing, we will be telling our friends.

The food is very good. We went twice. Great sushi. It is in a mall, so you have to be ready to be eating in the middle of a loud place. We got the 5x5 and the fresh fish a la National and it was...quite goodMore

This busy restaurant is located in the shopping mall of the V and A and never ever disappoints. The waiting staff are so polite and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. They know their menu inside out and spend time with their guests in...an advisory capacity. The food always comes promptly, fresh, hot ( if that’s what you ordered) colourful and a very good portion. They use fresh ingredients often with an Asian or Japanese influence or style for some dishes. The are produced to perfection and going there is a must if you are going to the V and A. Five golden stars. You deserve it.More

It’s in the shopping mall so you can walk from The Table Bay hotel . It’s a cafe style and all the better for that. My wife and I loved it.

We first noticed this restaurant as we were walking through the V&A shopping area. The food on peoples plates looked great and after a quick look at the menu we decided to go for lunch the following day. Well that was the original plan but...we enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner too - can’t ever remember doing that! The menu is large and although a lot is Asian influenced there are many other items to chose from. We sat on bar stools for both meals so we could sit down straight away as there was a line for ‘normal’ tables. We quite enjoy watching the chefs prepare the sushi anyway so it was a good seating option. The menu goes on forever so we tried a number of different items across our 2 meals from salads to sushi to lamp chops. For every dish the food was exceptional - so fresh and tasty. It’s served so quickly as well so they are really very organised. For lunch we had the chicken teriyaki salad and Caesar salad with mixed plate of the chefs special prawn dishes - too much food for us - we’ve only just arrived from the UK and we keep assuming food comes in small portions as the prices are so cheap - but it’s large portions for low prices! In the evening I had the salmon grenades to start and then the lamp chops - all fantastic - especially loved the wasabi mash which came with the lamb. My wife had a rainbow roll and a portion of prawn tempura. The tempura was divine - so crispy with huge prawns! So everything about this place was great - food, service and value for moneyMore

I had a terrible meal at Willoughby in the V&A Waterfront shopping center. I ordered the Caesar salad with Cajun fish on top, and it was smothered in Caesar dressing, so much so that I couldn’t eat it. My husband had sushi, and he said...it tasted a few days old. Not only is the restaurant in the middle of a brightly lit shopping center, its food is disappointing. The service was OK.More
