I was impressed by this restaurant, notwithstanding the lack of atmosphere in its unremarkable downstairs restaurant.
The reasons why: respectful, attentive service from people who seemed to care whether we liked the food or not, coupled with authentic cooking and wonderfully tasty food.
I had lunch there this week with a friend with whom I go back a long way. He had chosen the venue as he had previously enjoyed it on a couple of occasions. We ordered a variety of dishes to share and we were impressed by almost all. The value for money was also very good given the high quality. Especially enjoyable were the warm spicy tempura prawn roll (outstanding !), the sea bass sashimi (the sauce made the dish), the sea weed salad which was refreshing with the chicken terriaki… all ingredients seemed fresh and cooked with care and not on an industrial scale. There other tables were largely busy, but the place remained calm. We were not hurried and we were served with a smile.
OK, so not a romantic or modernistic venue (downstairs, anyway), but for food and service… well, I liked it.
