Brilliant food, such a kind staff, and a generally lovely atmosphere. Top marks for Issa! Staff even talks Japanese! It's wonderful to go there. If you ask, you can easily get information about the anime and cosplay community too.

I have eaten at ISSA on a few occassions, and returned because of the great sushi . This time around, I thought I'd try the other menu options, and tried the delivery service on a wet and lazy Sunday evening. The sushi was still good,...More

This bright lit restaurant has good food at fair price. There is just nothing fancy about the place. It's cut down to the basics with Dutch waitresses who really don't know much about what's on the menu. Does it matter? If you go for an...More
