Six of us were welcomed by the friendly staff and even though we haven't been to this restaurant for six months we were recognised and made to feel they were pleased to see us again. The sushi is amazing and four of us ordered one of the platters on special. It was excellent value for money. In addition we had a salmon hand roll which I highly recommend.
The other two guests chose from the Chinese menu - tempura prawns and sweet and sour chicken and they too were delighted with their meals. Afterwards Michael, the Chef, came out to greet us and to make sure we'd enjoyed ourselves. He also offered us Saki on the house which was a novel experience that we thoroughly enjoyed.
The service from our waiter was excellent. He was friendly, attentive and efficient and made sure all our needs were met.
Dining here was a real treat as our hosts were clearly passionate about their restaurant and their food. The background music was also very pleasant and not so loud that you could not enjoy dinner time conversation.
I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant in Fish Hoek.

Took four friends for birthday celebration to Tigerlily after hearing good reviews. This family-run restaurant is colourfully decorated and has quite pleasant and tranquil atmosphere at lunchtime. It is obviously more popular at night.
Our party ordered rice and noodles to share with prawns, chicken and pork dishes. If you are used to getting crispy pork pieces you will be taken by surprise when pork meatballs arrive - unfortunately it was not to the liking of our party. Mother explained it was the way it was cooked in her part of China.
The sizzling prawns were large and good as was the black bean chicken and the chilli chicken dish (requested reduced chilli!).
All in all we had a good first encounter and will no doubt visit there again!

Service was most attentive when we arrived, but degenerated into ignoring us by the time we left.

Sushi and sashimi starters were fresh and excellent. Two of the three main courses were good. The sweet and sour pork was comprised of a few rock hard blocks of pork in sauce. Steamed rice was stale.

Nice clean ambience

The sushi is really excellent. I am surprised that I didn't know about this place before. I would recommend this sushi restaurant to anyone.
