“Delightful Japanese restaurant!!! From start to finish it has been a memorable experience, each dish is exquisite. I thoroughly recommend the dragon roll if you like prawns. The real Japanese Wagyu A5 is a must-have, at least once in a lifetime for a meat lover! Service is fantastic, customers are well looked after by caring waiters and staff. Brilliant experience once again can speak highly enough of this place. The location is good and there are plenty of multistorey car parks around. Most recommended.” – Stephane Picon
