Really surprised this restaurant pops up on so many lists as the best sushi in Cape Town, the food was very expensive and very disappointing. Despite booking a table two months in advance we were sat at the bar and the owner was rude to...More

Tried the winter special menu wich was great. Loved the miso soup. The rest of the menu is definitely overpriced but they seem to get away with it due to the great sushi.

After a diet leaning heavy on meat in the early part of our trip, my wife and I were in the mood for some good sushi. Fortunately, we were not disappointed. Kyoto has a relaxing setting and the sushi was outstanding. It’s definitely pricier than...More

The 3 course winter special (R220) was absolutely amazing, lovely venue, great value, good service and fabulous food. The Tuna tartar was amazing and the black sesame ice cream.

Had a wonderful evening last night, sitting at the bar enjoying fresh sashimi, and chatting with the Itamae as he crafted his work. Had hot seafood dishes too, and the mussels in miso was a particular treat - enjoy!

We heard this was the best Japanese in CT. It may well be. We had a nice array of sushi and sashimi, along with udon. The service was very professional. We would have preferred a larger sake menu, but what we had was more than...More

The sushi is good, but not exceptional. For something different, head to the mains: The Alaskan Night is interesting, if a little salty. Crab, salmon and (drumroll) a scallop, which is the highlight of this little seafood platter. The duck and noodles is a substantial...More
