Having spent 4 years in Japan this restaurant is the best Japanese restaurant I've come across in London. The sushi chef is excellent and lived and trained in Japan. The sushi is authentic, varied and immaculately fresh. There is an extensive choice of Japanese cuisine which is carefully prepared and presented beautifully. The Japanese beers are good, and the hot sake is served as you would expect in Japan. The atmosphere is lively and spacious, and the restaurant is very good value for money. Service is friendly and courteous.

The worst service ever.

The food wasn't very nice, but the services was really terrible. The staff had no understanding of japanese food. The lady that seemed to be in charge was very unfriendly. I would not go and eat here.
