bob and Adam visited in September 2007. The food was very good and well presented. The £20 Life Lunch special included a large starter, miso soup, tempura, sashimi, sushi, and a dessert. The quality of the fish was very good. The rice in the sushi fell apart quite easily.
Adam's ginger pork looked very nice.
They have a lunch menu and a main menu. The main menu was scary, in terms of both prices and choice.
The drinks were quite pricey; jasmine tea was £2.50, and a large white wine was about £5.
The (unisex) toilets are downstairs, but there is a stairlift down to them. No disabled toilet though, and the cubicles are quite small, so that may be a moot point.
There is a shop downstairs selling bizarre Japanese tat.
