I do not visit franchise restaurants if I can avoid it but decided to try the Sushi special on Wednesday. I was suitable surprised. Most of the times if you eat sushi on a special the restaurant skimp on the amount of fish you get but not here. The restaurant is very noisy so do not expect a quiet night out. The service is very slow and can definitely improve. However the sushi is really good and they have some interesting sushi dishes on the menu. The Calamari was also a good choice. Can recommend the restaurant.

Tasteless prawns but great service make up for this. Great value for money. Will visit again just hope someday they change the prawns recipe.

I found the sushi very average for the price. I was expecting better after hearing great things about John Dorys. Service was also quite lacklustre with staff simply going about their day.

Rather try other places for your sushi fix.

Great food (even on a very busy evening). Special compliments to the manager who kept her eye on all customers and checked in often to see whether customer needs were met.

We always sit by the Sushi bar, while the children run off to the play area. The sushi and seafood is consistently good, the service very good, an overall pleasant experience.
