Having searched for great sushi places in Jo'burg, I think I'm pretty hard to please. But finally I found my match.
I dined here on July 27th as a birthday celebration and I was thoroughly impressed with my choice. From the friendly smile I got from the parking guy to the ambience walking into the restaurant I must say, I was looking forward to a fantastic night.
We were greeted timeously by Ayanda within a few seconds of our arrival. He then led us into the dining room where we could choose to sit in the big dining room or in the private dining room which offered a more intimate dining experience. Of course since I was with my boyfriend we went for the latter option. We were presented with clean menus, each one introduced, to tell us what we would find in it. We ordered warm sake, I'm not a fan but I took one for the team. And having had worked at a Japanese restaurant before, it was great. I loved that they had a device where you could call for the waiter, we didn't need it because Bruce, Ayanda(Bruce's protégé), and I'm assuming the Supervisor, were so attentive.
We ordered Vietnamese spring rolls to start with, those came with a delicious peanut butter sauce and a sweet chilli sauce. We then ordered The tuna dragon roll, eel roll, and salmon maki.
Everything was beautifully presented, and tasted great.
We finished the night off with Ayanda's recommendation of the chocolate cigar. Pretty amazing as well.
By the end of the meal we were pretty stuffed and well pleased with our choice to go there from Soweto.
Service was amazing, food was amazing, the experience was amazing.
