Handy for the Lyceum Theatre, this offshoot of local fixture Sushiya is a nicely minimal spot, with a calming, woody interior; less noodle-heavy than its parent, it focuses on “good, carefully prepared” sushi and sashimi.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
