    Really poor - no idea how this chain has survived. Got the order wrong - nothing was good - rice terrible. Last tried them ten years ago when they first opened and they were terrible then.

    The katsu curry here is fab. Takeaway is fast but sitting in service is also good

    Portions are a little small and more expensive than other places around. It could be argued that the taste is slightly better.

    There are lots of different kinds of well-prepared sushi, but very little seating. Great for a take out meal. They also have lots of lush Japanese snacks.

    Everything is just right. Has a relaxed, open feel. Wonderful food. Really recommended.

    Try to go before/after lunch hours so you can grab a seat and go for the ramen ;)

    The pork katsu curry is surprisingly authentic. Bibimbap is always a winner too.

    The Asahi beer was good; the katsu chicken curry not so good. Decent portions but not great quality

    Chicken katsu curry in a bento box, fried calamari and Asahi beer is so tasty and such good value. Highly recommend it for lunch or for dinner on the way home.

    I was a bit disappointed from the pressure when it comes to order with these "next!" yells. The food was nice even if the portions were not so big.

    Acoustic wall is needed here to absorb noise and kitchen needs a better extractor fan - the place stinks of cooking oil and too much echoing.

    Really nice food. Particularly the Katsu curry and dumplings. It would be nice if the staff were a bit more friendly to customers. Feels a bit inattentive.

    Food as good a standard as you would expect from this chain but the real bonus is the Asahi at better than City average prices. Go for the beer, have excellently priced side dishes!

    Gone really downhill. Food is lacking quality and flavour that it used to. I'd gone somewhere else.

    Don't bother ordering a drink unless you want to ask eight members of staff if they can pretty please bring it to you...

    The Katsu bento is a must (curry on the side so it's not drenched) and a side of miso soup & wasabi peanuts

    I often come here for lunch or after work and order the Salmon Teriyaki donburi. It takes a little longer to prepare but it is worth it. I also recommend the lettuce wraps. #OptimusApproves
