Nose-to-tail sushi from acclaimed experts in an off-the-beaten track location. This sushi restaurant with simple décor comes up trumps in the food department with a menu that changes according to availability and daily specials. Widely regarded as one of the finest Japanese restaurants in the UK, highlights could include Hamachi (Japanese Amberjack) and toro sashimi (buttery tuna belly) or fresh water eel nigiri. Special mention also goes to the wagyu nigiri. Sushi sets could include hosomaki (four mini rolls), uramaki (reverse rolls), temaki (hand roll)and gunkan (two battle ship rolls). It’s a menu to please the most jaded of diners. Wines and beers include lively Japanese Koshu wine, sake and European wines as well as beers like Asahi and Estrella. With fresh locally sourced fish delivered every day and an ever-changing specials board, the choice is extensive. The £64 tasting menu takes in shellfish sashimi, congee, pork with bonito, many ways with tuna and roasted plum-sake-infused pineapple. An understated tour de force.
