My husband and I have been to Japan several times and became kind of sushi foodies. When we came to Cape Town we tryed all restaurants with 4 and 5 stars on TripAdvisor.
It depends what your looking for: If you want getting the best quality of fish because you love sashimi this is your place to go.
The fish quality is incredible! It melts in the mouth! The fish on the nigiri is much bigger then the rice underneath. Just the way it is in Japan!

If you're looking for a nice place to sit and you put emphasis on white tablecloth but you're fine with a good but not the best quality of fish go to Beluga.

The stuff is really friendly and nice. The atmosphere is simple like you're in someone's house and the sushi is great. Ate there yesterday and I can't wait to go again...

Don't be discouraged by the simple and somehow understated presentation of this place. It's hard to find and a little hidden on a side street, but defenitely worth every Rand. Go there if you just want to have superb Sushi. Great, quick and forthcoming staff. Thumbs up!

Outstanding sushi with some of the freshest tuna served exactly at the optimal sushi temperature for flavor and “melt in the mouth” tuna and outstanding rolls. Our favorite were the 9 piece tuna sashimi, futomaki roll, dragon roll, age dashi dofu (tender tofu in special sauce), and har gar (shrimp from dim sum menu). The service was outstanding, and the owner’s recommendations were perfect. Very friendly waittress/manager
