This restaurant is one we always come back to when we want something consistent and tasty, good choice of food, meat or vegetarian. The wine list should be updated though. Deep fried bananas ice cream and chocolate sauce yum!

Sad to report Ezumi is no longer a nice place. It is dirty and the food is tasteless. Thought last time they had a bad day but it's now been three bad experiences in a row. We will not return.
