Very rude people and very slow service. I was really annoyed. The environment is quite shabby. The food is ok but I would not come back

The restaurant looks a little scruffy from the outside, but this is well made up for by the delicious food! It's pretty cheap for the amount and quality of the food. The inside doesn't look as nice as some other sushi restaurants in Leeds, but...I imagine that's one of the ways that costs are kept down.More

Just ordered a delivery from this restaurant, due to arrive 9.15pm and hadn't arrived by 9.30. Called the restaurant, and spoke to a lady who said the driver had just been sent out. I explained that wasn't good enough as it was supposed to have...been with me by now and was then put on to a gentleman with a very poor attitude. Apparently traffic had caused the delay due to the England game! Not sure how when people will have been watching it! Things like this do happen, but was appalled at the lack of sincerity and the fact the guy couldn't care less if he lost a customer, which he has. Save your money and don't bother with here as they really are not bothered about their customers!More

The worst serve I have ever experienced. after ordering from them- my door bell went and within 30 secs I was at the door. the driver had already gone! after calling the restaurant the employee was rude, disrespectful and sarcastic as he told me they...called 10 times and waited 15 mins for me. it hadn't even been 15 mins since he was supposedly at my door that I made the call!!! he then went on to tell me that he was keeping my money and my food! DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE!!!More

I had a horrible experience with this restaurant. The taste of sushi was amazing but in the middle of the night i found myself running for the bathroom and... I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.

After waiting an hour for food, I tried to call the restaurant to chase my order and couldn't get through. My apartment buzzer went off, however when I went to the main gate (30 seconds later), no one was there. When I rang the restaurant...I was told they have tried to ring me multiple times (I had no miss calls) and the driver was outside for 15 minutes and left (absolute lie). The man on the phone was not at all interested and took no blame. So rude and if you actually want some food...DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE!More

We ordered food and waited an hour before we heard the flat buzzer. Went downstairs, no one was there. We called the restaurant, where a rude man told us that the delivery driver had been waiting 15 minutes for us and had called us multiple...times. This is a lie - we were constantly checking our phones and no one had called. The man on the phone was incredibly dismissive and offered no apology. After reading other reviews, I realise this is a common unacceptable problem which regularly occurs. Utterly disappointed - will never be ordering from here again.More

Ordered a sushi platter via Deliveroo. The image used to advertise the sushi platter was incorrect, didn't come with as many items as advertised. The image used portrayed the platter as including several more expensive pieces of sushi, but was instead filled to the brim...with Salmon Avacado Rolls. Surprise surprise they had replaced the more premium items with cheaper ones. Rang the restaurant who defended this by stating that since the items in the platter were listed below the picture, it was perfectly okay to lie. The person also said "A lot of places do this". Glad to know it's okay to misrepresent your product to customers as long as lots of places do it! I can't even begin to imagine the mental gymnastics it takes to respond to "I don't think it's cool to misrepresent your product" by saying "I think you're just being petty" to a customer. The person at the restaurant was not only not helpful, but was incredibly rude, obnoxious and hung up on me. I'd be surprised but judging by their reviews on Google this isn't out character. Refused to offer a partial refund or deliver the missing items, so I went to Deliveroo and got a complete refund. Funny how a little customer service would have cost them a few pounds, if that, but instead they now take a complete loss on the order. Karma.More
