Dunkirk and Lenton, Nottingham, 20-30£
18/12/2018: No somos consumidores habituales de comida japonesa, principalmente porque no hay muchos disponibles donde vivimos en Cornwall. Fuimos al restaurante como una ocasión especial mientras visitábamos a una familia en Nottingham. Éramos cuatro, todos muy cocinados. Comida exquisita y deslumbrante! ¡Que experiencia! Rara vez me ha impresionado tanto un restaurante. Una excelente experiencia gastronómica presentada meticulosamente por los dos propietarios japoneses. Las instalaciones estaban muy bien limpias en todo. El menú fue toda una experiencia, ya que había muchos platos inusuales para elegir. Podrías comer una comida grande allí y aún así no subir de peso. Esto se debe a que los elementos del menú son muy saludables. El arte de la presentación es insuperable. Los platos son como una obra de arte en sí mismos. No puedo recomendar el restaurante lo suficiente, especialmente para una ocasión especial. Volveré cuando vuelva a visitar Nottingham.
28/09/2018: Would highly recommend making a reservation to eat here as it is a very small restaurant.


Ebi Sushi Restaurant

Arboretum, Derby
23/05/2019: Incredible food with great service. Watching it all be created is mesmerising! The restaurant is far from appetising from the outside but the food .... wow!
24/04/2019: Amazing food here! I've eaten at Ebi a couple of times now, more recently bringing my family along to see if they liked it. The verdict was unanimous - absolutely delicious food. It might not look as fancy as the other Japanese restaurant down the road, but the food is a hell of a lot better.


Kuru Kuru Sushi

Castle, Leicester
15/05/2019: Walked 10 mins to find this tiny and absolutely excellent sushi restaurant for take away. Very friendly front of house staff and great value. Would highly recommend
07/05/2019: Ordered four separate dishes. Favourite was soft shell crab maki, tuna maki and tempura prawns, in that order. Food was very tasty. Very cosy seating and gets busy quick, so be prepared to wait for a seat if eating in :)



St Leonard's, Chesterfield
07/05/2019: Food superb.It is cooked fresh there and then and you can get as much as you want and there's plenty to choose from. Will be back when visiting Chesterfield again soon
31/03/2019: There is parking anywhere in Chesterfield but they dont have their own car parking. They are down an ally that smells of urine and had their windows open.



Castle, Northampton
29/05/2019: We are frequent visitors to Ginza - the food is always EXCELLENT as well as service! Our favorites are Soup Noodles especially Korean Niku Ramen and Seafood Laksa with Chicken Gyoza and Spring Roll as a side. We would highly recommend Ginza to everyone!
20/04/2019: Friendly service, great Japanese food with plenty of vegan options. Also very reasonably priced. Highly recommend



Sherwood, Nottingham
29/05/2019: Fui para la comida de mi hijo 18 cumpleaños como un regalo especial. Hemos comido aquí hace unos años y sabíamos que la cocina sería divertida de ver. Todos tuvimos entrantes que estaban deliciosos. Sushi, albóndigas y tempura delicioso! ! Para las 2 selecciones de ginza, un marisco y un pollo. 2 copas de vino y refrescos. Todos llegaron a 120, así que un poco caro, que habría estado bien, pero toda la comida de los platos principales era salada. Un montón de arroz, pero todo lo demás era porciones más pequeñas.
25/05/2019: The worst Japanese food I’ve ever had! Sushi wasn’t fresh, presentation not good. Teppanaki all for show and not the taste.



Castle, Leicester
02/06/2019: My husband and I visited here for dinner. We were warmly greeted, our food and drink order was taken swiftly and arrived in good time too. No faults at all and would gladly return.
01/06/2019: The food was nice / light . The service was prompt / friendly . They made recommendations which were spot on !


Little Tokyo

Westcotes, Leicester, <20£
31/03/2019: I took my in-laws for my birthday last week and both of them beforehand were very unsure as to if they would like it as they don't like sushi, however they were raving about it by the time we left. I've only been a few times but have really enjoyed it every time. It's a little Gem on braunstone gate that I think is well worth a visit. Someone on one of the low reviews compared it to waggamomas, i don't think there is any comparison i would choose Little Tokyo any day over wagga's
30/03/2019: Visited here for lunch with my daughter as I fancied a ramen soup and didn’t fancy going into town to wagamamas, where I eat regularly. Food came- soup very small- noodles with a few bits of chicken no veg. Tasted ok but left me with bloated stomachache and not worth £8.95. Daughter had sushi seemed ok and tiny spring rolls which were just mainly pastry and small filling. Sweet and poor tasting. Then after being left at table and going up to pay then two failed attempts and being asked if my card worked! Finally, told card machine didn’t work due to lack of connection and had to walk to Tesco for cash. Needless to say, never again!!!


Yo! Sushi

Bridge, Nottingham
18/05/2019: Great, accessible Sushi stop with super friendly staff & loads to choose from even if you don't like traditional Sushi!
15/05/2019: Amazing sushi as always, especially the new Inari Taco! The Nottingham store has always been our favourite! We love being served by Jerry, he is the star of Yo Sushi! :)


Moonsha Japanese Bar & Restaurant

Arboretum, Derby
03/06/2019: If you choose to go to this restaurant, don’t choose the table service, choose the stools with dedicated chefs. The people at these stations seem to get better service and have a better time. The food was ok not amazing. Don’t do the karaoke, the private room has a limited song list, and poor interface. The main room system, microphones were broken, and the wifi and system jumps continuously. Was told that the system was working perfectly as we stood there and watched it jump and skip. Was told I could have an hour refunded, didn’t happen. Just stay clear of the karaoke.
27/05/2019: Four of us went recently to the Tepanyaki Bar at The Moonsha in Derby. The food was excellent, a really good choice of fresh meat,poultry, shellfish and fish. The food couldn't be fresher as it is cooked in front of you by a top class chef, who is not only an excellent chef but also a showman who will keep you thoroughly entertained throughout your meal.



Bridge, Nottingham
29/04/2019: Realmente me gusta este lugar, he estado aquí alrededor de 6 o 7 veces con grandes grupos de amigos para los cumpleaños, la comida es realmente buena, como realmente muy agradable. El personal es servicial, amable y comprensivo. Quería una modificación en mi comida, ya que soy muy quisquillosa con la comida, y la joven camarera que tenía era muy encantadora y servicial al hablar con los chefs y no hacerme sentir como un cliente difícil (jaja), así que definitivamente recomiendo este lugar si le gusta la comida al estilo japonés.
20/04/2019: A una fracción del precio de visitar Japón para "Auténtica degustación de comida japonesa", este lugar es un excelente restaurante para aquellos que desean algo un poco diferente de su experiencia habitual con los vagabundos. . Las porciones de comida son generosas, está bien de precio por su ubicación en la ciudad y la comida era deliciosa.



Castle, Leicester
03/06/2019: Ate here on busy bank holiday Sunday but got seated fairly quickly. Had the vegetable dumplings, Raw juice drink, bang bang cauliflower and a tofu pad thai. Tasted fresh and plenty of it. Would eat here again although it would be nice if the mains came out the same time as i'd nearly finished mine before my partners came out.
25/05/2019: We came here on a busy Friday night, so it is understandable when things are hectic for waiting times to be a little slower. But on this night we as a party of four (who ordered things at the same time) got half our drinks half an hour apart. Then, our starters came after our main courses arrived, and one of the party didn’t get their main course until half an hour after the rest of us! Due to the wait, we were told that the late main would be free of charge... which was later retracted and told that would be a free dessert instead. Not particularly honorary of what you have promised your customer. Slow, sporadic service. The waiters were nice enough though. We were told our food may be brought out at different times due to different prep times; but all other restaurants seem to be able to nail that down so why can’t you? Disappointing.



Castle, Northampton, 60-100£
26/05/2019: We just returned from Sakura restaurant. Food was very good, manager and chef are doing amazing job. Very attentive. Definitely will be going back.
20/05/2019: Ate here on Saturday - the exterior belies the lovely interior. Place was really nicely decorated inside and everything was spotless. Best miso soup I've ever had followed by gyoza and other starters and the teppyiani which was brilliantly done. We both had the salmon and had to bring some home the portion was so generous. Service was amonst the top service I've had in a restaurant - professional but friendly - loved it and will definitely go back and try more of their offerings!



Carholme, Lincoln
30/05/2019: Quick & friendly service, brief descriptions of food enquired of. Speedy delivery of meals. Meals were lovely presented & flavoursome with seasonings & mild spices!! Only thing for me was price of meals & portion size!! Pleased to of tried it though!!!
25/05/2019: The concept is an interesting difference to a lot of other local eateries. To be fair it wasn't my cup-of-tea. That said the service was great the food was good and overall not too over priced. It's not somewhere I would go out of my way to visit again, although, I would suggest if you haven't tried it and your feeling a bit adventurous, give it a go.

07/06/2018: Al principio, estábamos confundidos por el exterior de este restaurante, pensando que solo era entrega. Tampoco se ve apropiadamente amueblado en la planta baja. Luego fuimos invitados a sentarnos en el piso de la calle 1, que era minimalista y acogedor.
24/11/2017: incomplete order, cold,late and large duck leg bone in with duck, not good on the phone to get our order sorted never again.
