Visited before the theatre, everything is freshly cooked. Staff will help you with the menu if you are unsure. I have to say the food was all freshly cooked, piping hot and tasted incredible. Will definitely be visiting again very soon.

Ok. So I will say it. Well presented sushi always tastes better to me. I know it's all in head, but when a plate arrives and it's perfectly presented, it tells you a lot. The chef loves his work. He has taken great care and pride in his work. The Maki roles I ordered here were perfectly presented. The Chef's... More

Have been to this restaurant several times because of the fantastic food and good value, particularly the set menus. The sushi is my favourite, and there is a good selection. But all the food is great and we have witnessed some really impressive dishes coming out, you can see the chefs cooking, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh. The... More

Our second visit to Yakitori and once again lovely. Super daisy fresh sashimi. Service a little slow and they didn't seem to be that busy. Didn't really matter as its great to watch the chefs in the open kitchen.

Especially the big portion of katsu chicken curry rice! I was initially skeptical about the Pan-Asian themed menu including pad Thai, but the food we had were pretty authentic.

I really like this place. The menu has all the usual suspects with a reasonable price tag. The Sauvignon Blanc at £15 a bottle is just about drinkable(the price helps!)
