The sushi is amazing, fillet steak was delicious and the lamb shank was succulent. A meal well enjoyed by my family as we celebrated my hubby’s birthday. Seating is a bit overcrowded and less personal, though.

Definitely a good option at Nelson Mandela Square. Went two times, one for lunch, other for dinner. Preferred dinner time at the restaurant.
