Spent £40 on food with tea between two people and felt stuffed. All good with a wide range on the conveyor belt to chose from. Also get to watch sushi being made while you eat. Recommended as a pre royal albert Hall place to get...More

Well located. Simple. Excellent food. Don't go if you want super decor; go if you want super good food in an easy going setup

We were looking for a quick light bite before heading home after a day round London. Clean, small and well lit, we sat at the conveyor belt and blankly perused the 'prizes'. We ordered some hot dishes from a large selection on a menu, which...More

The food is quite good, although the place is quite tiny too and could make you feel a bit claustrophobic. The personal are very kind but during peak times they can get a bit pushy with the table-talk. Other than that, this place is fab.

Crowded, with a sushi train bringing a succession of different dishes. You pay according to the colour of the plates at the end. Reasonable choice. Not as much simple sushi as alot of places, very little sashimi, and alot of the expensive California rolls etc....More

Great find. With a YO Sushi conveyor belt the food comes thick and fast. You watch the chef put together everything fresh and can order hot food from a menu. The room feels a little constricting and the waiter could not remember 3 hot dishes;...More

It is a great location and we were attracted by the name and conveyor belt, but food is not authentic nor fresh. My kids had a number of sushi rolls and got very sick the follow day. Not recommended.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
