The Omakase (chef's choice) is an excellent and entertaining dinner. The chef talks you through each of 12 small courses as he prepares them in front of you. There are some very good standards (lovely tempura prawn roll and also scallops) but the more unusual ones are the highlights such as marinated octopus, barbecued eel (fantastic soft texture) and smoked tuna ( presented under a glass dome filled with hickory smoke). We chose to have the sake selection with the meal and it was a revelation of flavours that complimented each course. There were 4 Sakes, each one showed great variation depending on the food match. Thoroughly recommended.

It's my second time in the venue and it hasn't disappointed me. The chicken ramen was amazing. The curry ramen was ok but a but too spicy for me. The soft crab roll was freshly made and delicious!

Had a great lunch today. The interior is spacious, light and comfortable. We had the big booth which can accommodate easily 8/9 people. The service was good and food arrived quick. I like the view of the sushi making bar.

Had the spicy tuna rolls - good but not spicy enough even with all the wasabi in the soya sauce.

Tonkotsu ramen with soft boiled egg and braised pork belly. Really nice homemade noodles and the broth was thick but not too salty or msg (unlike a noodle place in Glasgow). Portion size was properly a bit small and the broth was not what I consider hot.

Overall definitely recommend to eat here.

Popped in after a long day looking for something 'for a change...' and was pleasantly surprised with this new find. Arrived early evening to a lovely greeting and welcome with plenty choice of seating; within 30 miinutes the place was full! Both my son and I had the pork gyozu to start - delicious - had a nother portion between us later. Chicken ramen and sushi of the day was ordered, both arriving 'when ready...' and both first class - veryfresh sushi I thought. Will be back for sure.
