    Very friendly staff that's 100 percent willing to help with everything the customer needs! We couldn't have the soy sauce since it contains alcohol but the staff went out their way to go search for one that fits us!

    Went on a Friday night. Booked in advance. Glad we did as the restaurant is smaller than we thought. Which isn't a bad thing, made the atmosphere cosy the only downside is that if you're sat next to a loud couple/party. Food was excellent the Veg Tempura mini rolls were superb. I'd defo get a few if you are a group of people. We split 2 mains between 4 which was fine. Food was lovely. Service was friendly and polite. Very impressed. Will definitely go back!

    I went with my friend to get a meal before Kevin Bridges gig, food was outstanding so flavourful. I had the chicken ramen and two cocktails; the ramen was so good and filling and I savoured every sip of the cocktails. The staff are lovely it’s a very cosy atmosphere and reflective of Japanese style restaurants with the booths and bar stools. 10/10 definitely recommend.

    Sushi was good. Service was hit or miss tbh. One server was friendly and helpful. Another was brash and downright rude. They asked my friend if they had an other things they needed before they left with a huffy tone. Unacceptable.

    All was great. The only feedback is smaller bite size rolls. They could not be bitten in half easily and it was difficult to eat them whole. Otherwise delicious!

    We were regulars here pre Lockdown, enjoying it. Despite a couple of average home deliveries which we put down to Lockdown service since, this was our first time back in a few months. It was quiet when we arrived but it didn't sound it. The music was thumping so we asked to turn it down a bit. That brought the first scowl of the evening from our server. This was followed by an explanation that there were a number of items not on the menu. Fair enough it happens. No salmon roe, no longer doing flights of sake, only two beers on and one was warm, no kimchi. Whatever it was a list. The mixed tempura was dominated by peppers. Two prawns in a large dish and the batter was inconsistent and thick. Salmon nigri was fine as was the seabass topped with salmon. Very nice and a good number. The spicy salmon was so so and came in a number of sizes, not that it was supposed to. The spicy tuna roll was ok. Not overly spicy and thick cucumber stopped it being better. A couple of other salmon dishes were instantly forgettable. The service came with attitude throughout, the music went back to noisy again in no time and we walked away with a bill for £90 for two. Simply not good value with food that has lost its quality from times before. We won't be going back for a while if at all. Sorry to say that as we used to enjoy PG and it is very handy for us, but there is better out there without the attitude and at a better price.

    A great place to eat. Menu full of choice. We plumped for a mixed sushimi which was magnificent, followed by bulgogi, also very good but a giant portion. All washed down with a refreshing beer. Staff, food and ambience all great. Definately worth a visit.

    Waitress who seated us was a bit rude and abrupt towards us and often found it hard to get the servers attention at times even though it's such a tiny, intimate setting. The food and drinks were nice but a few of us left with some funny stomachs. Would maybe give it another chance to redeem itself but not raving about the place.

    As regular clients we know what to expect. The food overall was slightly better than recently - the karage was crisper and the hot food generally hot. It is not a cheap eat enough food for 2 big eaters and 2 kombuchas - no wines or beers and at the table for only an hour came to £72 with tip.
