The superior ratings speak for themselves, so I'll go foodie. I've never had a ceviché as crisp, juicy and exciting - the perfect citrus awakens you, then comes the salt, the light herbs, then the FRESH fish. Made to order (not from a tub).

As we found ourselves in paradise, next stop: Salmon Tartare. This ones a little more bold, and sassy. Perfect to follow the ceviché...cool, not ice cold, and seasoned enough to compliment, but not dominate.

Main event: The King Prawn Tempura roll were out of the world! Crispy prawns wrapped in perfectly prepared rice (throughout the meal the rice was perfect, not like you get most places) and the outer sides covered in lovely things - little onions, spices, and the sauce is dainty, light, sweet and tangy - not out of a bottle and not drowning the food (how very un-British, haha).

Spicy tuna roll: Lean, mean and a party in the mouth. Salad combos: fresh, crisp and eccentric compared to the other stuff out there - they don't shy away from avocados, and delicate fare.

Veggie? No problem, they will modify ANY dish on the menu. Vegan? Gluten free? Gotchya' covered.

Atmosphere: At first, the size of the place may seem an uh-oh, but what they do absolutely right is - they have plenty of staff (quelle surprise - at least one of the proprietors is American, a customer service culture) and the tables are a good size for the place - filled, but not awkward and cramped. They put some thought into it.

Service: The proprietor, two wait staff, and a bartender chatted us, served us, and didn't flinch when we kept adding to our order (it's THAT good). Not once did I become distracted with that killer of a good dining experience "where's my.. the.." - it was effortless, even though filled to capacity.

Also, bless them, they take it as it comes. Although we were two, they gave us the next available table - for four, instead of making us wait for a two-up to clear. Again, a good service, from a keen couple of proprietors.

This is RARE in the UK, especially in a tourist town, on a busy Friday. All in all I'm finding a bit of a renaissance happening West of Brighton going into Hove. we felt at home, not like running home.

WELL DONE!

PS. this is NOT a place for loads of kids imho. Thank God. Perhaps during the day...

I usually go there for lunch time during work. Its a fast service place for their poke bowls. But the sushi in the other hand, does take a while, so that is something to keep in mind.

But overall, food is really good, and price is reasonable.

Went for a Groupon lunch today...empty when arrived at midday...delightful waitress, warm welcome, 2 x well chilled glasses of wine and the most outstanding sushi platter arrived quite quickly. I’ve put a picture of the food, never done that before...it’s that good, an absolute taste sensation. My partner hadn’t eaten sushi before and absolutely loved it. It’s certainly not authentic Japanese, they’ve added a Latin twist and boy, does it work. The service continued to be first class, caring, interested, knowledgeable, proud of her restaurant.
An epic Groupon lunch.

We tried the smoked salmon and teriyaki chicken poke bowls and both of these were delicious. We also ordered a few pieces of sushi between us to share which were nice but not quite as enjoyable as the poke bowls. An overall bill of around £30 for two poke bowls, eight pieces of sushi and two drinks also seemed a little steep to me, but we did enjoy the food. The service was also very good and the staff very friendly.
