Stumbled across this little gem entirely by accident and what a pleasure it was to eat there. Prices are reasonable and the Waitress, Melissa, as well as being stunning, was extremely helpful and even helped me pronounce Asahi correctly. :-) Highly recommended.

Came here for the first time earlier today with my girlfriend, absolutely amazing food and fast service. Some of the best Asian food I've had and definitely the best in town.

Went for a spontaneous lunch with the girlfriend, all the food was delicious, generous portions and full of flavour, jasmine tea with unlimited refills just £1.50 too! will be returning as the teriyaki steak served next to us smelled incredible and I must try!

Oh sorry I don't know.. May be give them a call :0)
Hi, We are coming to stay next week. I am quite worried about coming now as I have had so many bad reports. Will you be able to make sure we have a Non smoking apartment as I am allergic to smoke. Also not noisy as I need to get my sleep or I get quite ill (medical condition). I am now also worried about the presentation as I was told when I booked it would be 2 to 3 hours with Breakfast. Every review I have read is up to 6 hours! That is outrages! Is this true???? Thanks Eryn
