Harden's survey result
“Accomplished and delicious Japanese cuisine at very sensible prices” isn’t easy to find – especially in Chinatown – but this “little gem” of a corner spot on the edge of the area is the exception, seeming to “set itself apart from the humdrum”; “there’s no sushi, but the rice in the don bowls is better than all the sushi restaurants I’ve been to in the UK”.
“This charming little venture on the edge of Chinatown continues to provide superb Japanese food (verging on the exquisite)”, and also “continues to stick to its no-sushi guns (their policy forbids it, as they have no chefs with the requisite seven years training)”. Prop up a seat at the counter for some of “the best rice in the north-west”.
A “charming, little, wood-covered Japanese bolthole” which “continues to impress at every visit with its clarity of flavours”, its “precision of cooking, and its uncompromising no-sushi policy (as they haven’t done the 7 years’ training)”; even so, “their rice continues to be some of the best around” – but “expect to share a table or counter space” to enjoy it.
