Coming from Vancouver where there is basically a sushi restaurant every street corner, I must say 1890 was a hearty meal in Cape Town. Roommates and I sat at the belt and had 10 plates between the three of us; can't say for them but I left very full and happy!

The black plate where there were little peppers placed on top of avocado rolls was so good, I'm definitely coming back for more! Nice find in Obs for sure.

We visit here every other week. The food is good and fresh and reasonably priced. From the outside not particularly elegant but look through the window and you will probably find it is full. We like to sit at the bar and take from the revolving counter

We ordered two different platters for our catch up dinner. Two platters arrived and looked and tasted good. five minutes later the waitress came to our table and said the one platter was meant for other customers. The manageress expected us to buy the wrong plate on top of our two other platters since we had already had two little pieces of the 16 pieces platter. She took the platter back to the kitchen with a big huff and very long face. We couldn't believe the way we were treated. We then wanted to show our goodwill and paid for the bamboo roll. The manager kept her long face the entire evening and turned her head away as we were leaving. She should take a course

We were looking for a last minute dinner in CT. Coming from out of town we didn't know you have to reserve in restaurants really early so we had nowhere to go on Saturday night.
This sushi place was well recommended on trip advisor and decided to give it a shot. Sushis are good. Its your average sushi place. Chef is creative with offering sandwich sushi etc.

Neighborhood is really sketchy I would have not walked alone there and was scared in our uber on the way back to our hotel.

This sushi gem in the heart of buzzing Observatory in Cape Town has always delivered on its reputation of providing exceptional sushi at very reasonable prices and this time – as always – they didn’t disappoint. Feeling somewhat conservative and not really all that hungry we shared takeaway prawn spring rolls with sweet chili sauce, chicken chop suey and an interesting coconut milk-infused Tom Yum soup. All very yummy.
