Not much vegetarian food available. Got a vegan poke bowl and was very bland and plain, as well as overly priced. The meat options are good tho. Really pretty restaurant interior and decent service however wouldn’t be going back.

Delicious food and great service. Would happily go again. Pretty and trendy interior but also very busy on a Friday night. So perhaps not ideal if you are looking for a romantic restaurant, but otherwise its fab.

Lovely decor, okay food although not great for the price - the main stumbling block was the fact we ordered a bottle of Prosecco and then were charged for 4 separate glasses and not given any kind of compensation when we pointed out this mistake (although the staff did apologise).

Food was not of quality standard- not tasty at all from some of the other Japanese’s places I have been too and also a bit pricey.
Thai green chicken curry was awful with the sauce had some other funny flavour which we could not capture. Certainly won’t be paying another visit. ☹️

Very good service, great tasting food but the sushi ferris wheel platter is definitely overpriced for the amount you get for two people. Expected much more but at least They could say how many pieces you get.

We arrived early but they kindly managed to give us a table immediately. Food and drinks were very good except the beef tataki which was somewhat tough & tasteless. We tried to order sake but they didn’t have any!! Cocktails & sushi were great

Cocochan
Responded on 17 December 2019

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the beef tataki was not to your liking. We've got plenty of other dishes on our menu that we would love for you to come back and try. Unfortunately, we did not have Sake on the day of your visit but we do serve three varieties of them. We look forward to having you amongst us again.
