Even on a Monday evening, the restaurant was full. The choices on the All You Can Eat are marvellous and offer outstanding value. I was with a fellow New Yorker and an experienced Food Writer and she truly appreciated the food.

Have been there with my family in Jan.2017 for lunch.

They have a good variety of Japanese food with an affordable all you can eat option.

The Prawns tempura and salmon rose were specially good.

I have never been a fan of sushi but this sushi was fresh, well made and delicious. The service was good and the sushi is competitively priced. The menu is thorough and offers a range of great sushi. The platter options (active options) are very well priced and caters to various tastes.

Active Sushi is really only worth it for the "Eat all you like" option for R199. The problem is that you can't really eat all you like. You will get to place a single order and never see your waitron again, until he comes to tell you that it is too late to order any more. We got there at 8, and the kitchen closes at 10. I am not usre if the staff were having a bad night or if this is restaurant policy. I also had to collect our wine (in glasses) from the bar myself after having seeing them on the counter for 15 minutes. We will never go again. There are plenty of other sushi places in Cape Town, and this one is really not worth the effort.

Ordered from here while staying at the Capital mirage, so cannot speak to the ambiance. The delivery was fast and professional. The presentation upon delivery was also good, everything was packaged into one tray. The sushi was not bad, but I've had a lot of sushi in my day so this was just okay. I was most underwhelmed by the amount of mayo placed on some of their fancy rolls, not spicy mayo, just mayo. If I gave this a try again I'd ask for no mayo. Overall not bad if you're in the need for a sushi fix in the area, and reasonably priced.
