It's while since I was in Japan but I did eat there in many different restaurants and I never came across anything quite like Zushi, I appreciate that in presenting a menu that offers several different styles of food compromises have to be made but I found the food was short of that most Japanese of virtues, subtlety. A few specifics the chicken yakitori ( was it chicken? I wasn't sure.) came in a very sweet and glutinous sauce whilst the Udon was strong on ginger but short on soup. I remember we used to slurp the noodles then drink the soup from the bowl, perhaps not the thing for an English clientele. In general the food was not bad but like other reviewers one wonders about the authenticity. I was also surprised at how quickly the food came up, not a bad thing in itself but either the restaurant has a crack team of fast-moving chefs or a lot of pre-preparation has been done. Having said that I would be prepared to give it another go but then there's the question of service which failed on two crucial points. Firstly the main courses were brought to table before all of the starters had been finished, not good and secondly we had to wait a long time for the dessert menu, lots of chatting going on at the bar, and finally we had to ask for it. The girls who were serving us were perfectly pleasant but I guess a little more attention could be given to staff training.
