Karage chicken 😋😋😋 yum! This place is tucked away and serves the best Japanese in town! Everything is good so you can’t order wrong!

Food was authentic and tasty - the karaage chicken was crispy, pork Katsu and Teriyaki chicken were very flavoursome. Would definitely recommend.

First I had the fried dumplings. Don’t let the picture in the menu fool you, even though it’s folded like gyoza, it’s not. It’s really fried, which I found weird for a Japanese restaurant. The taste was good though. Then I had sushi: the seared...More
