This place was recommended by the tour guide and it didn't disappoint. It's situated in the V&A Waterfront in an aisle of the shopping centre, but don't let that put you off. Very busy, and no bookings taken, so you just turn up, read the...More

WARNING! this place is NOT authentic sushi. The rolls are gigantic with loads of rice and the fish is subpar - it tastes stringy which is NOT what fresh sushi is supposed to be like. We were super disappointed as with over 3300 reviews and...More

I have been to Willoughby a few times and not been impressed. We decided to give it another try. Again I was underwhelmed. The service was good. Fish nice but nothing special and being in the middle of a busy shopping mall is not my...More

Mostly they don't and you have to queue. But if you call they have three tables they might book for you. If you're willing to sit at the sushi bars then you get a seat more quickly.
