This is a slightly quirky cat themed, pizza serving, Japanese restaurant. The food is generous and delicious, with a great daikon salad and excellent tempura squid.

The food here was fantastic. Ordered a bowl of the dumpling soup, it was sensational, we ordered a second bowl! I ordered the tonkotsu ramen, which was 'so-so', which is expected as this isn't a ramen restaurant, so I'd go for a different option. Everyone...More
