I love this place! Yes you will queue if you hit rush hour but damn it's worth it! Went here three times in a two week period while on holiday we loved it that much. We always visited on an evening and always queued but...More

The food was awesome but the service miserable. It's a crowded place and everybody wants to go there because the sushi is brilliant and the other fish-dishes also. But our waitress seemed to be rather annoyed by customers than trying to serve them. She literally...More

Willoughby & Co at the V&A Waterfront is arguably one of the best Sushi restaurants in the Cape Peninsula. The Sushi, seared Salmon and dessert are all highly recommend. Superb atmosphere even though it is in the V&A shopping mall.

Had an early lunch with friends and jus had to marvel at the speed with which the queue of clients grew at lunch time. Same in evening. If you see it relatively free, do go and taste wonderful Sushi and sea food with imaginative salads.

The service is quite average but the sushi is amazing. Will definitely be coming back. Reasonable prices.

Well, not quite hidden, but very unassuming In the middle of the mall is not a place you'd find a sublime seafood restaurant that delivers fresh, tasty food all day every day. It's always busy, a great sign but the menu and food is out...More

Sometimes service is perfect and sometimes you just want to be more patient, but for sure, definitely the best sushi ever. I feel home when I am there, it's just part of our lives and couldn't be more special. Just can't miss the best in...More

Is your sushi gluten free? A waiter once told me that there is flour in the rice and the sushi is not gluten free. And then someone else told me it is gluten free. Please note that glutinous rice is not the same as rice containing gluten it is merely a stickier form of rice. Gluten comes from wheat oats barley malt rye or millet. We can always bring our own gluten free soy sauce if you do not provide it. (Although the wellness warehouse and Pick'npay both stock gluten free soy sauce and bragged liquid aminos as an alternative for your customers. We have celiac disease and gluten avoidance is unfortunately not a fad or lifestyle choice but a medical necessity
