Have been to this restaurant quite often. The sushi here is among the best in town. Try Inari with salmon or crispy California rolls. We always come back 👌😊

Easy-going sit down eatery with very delicious sushi, also very well priced. Had the soup starters and Singapore noodles which was not disappointing either. Service average.

A very demure looking "Thai" joint on along the road but what a gem! The flavours are fresh and the vegetables were crisp and perfectly cooked. We enjoyed Tom Kha w/veg soup, Calamari and sauce along with chilli & Basil prawns. Excellent meal.
