I had the take away dinner box and I really enjoyed this. It was a mixture of sushmi, sushi, chicken and tempura with rice and miso. However I did not think much of the teriyaki box that a family member had as chicken was dry.

The food was sublime and such good value for money. Massively enjoyed the "dinner box". The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere was lovely.

Thank you for a wonderful and diverse vegetarian experience. The vegetarian dinner was very well presented, extremely fresh, delightful range of flavors and fabulous!! All diners at our table raved about the food. Washed down with Asahi.
