Absolutely love the sushi, staff and service at John Dory's Canal Walk. We walked past the store and saw the half price sushi advertised. Warm welcome at the door. Sushi fresh and beautifully done. Service fast and friendly. Managers visible at all times. Thank you John Dory's! We'll see you soon.

Very friendly service, the sushi was really nice - the kids loved the sushi train. On another day we tried some cooked dishes and they were really good.

Had a good sized lunch - service fairly efficient but felt a bit like one was being processed to maximise covers. Food tasty, with a standard chain restaurant menu
