Brief notes from a meal in September 2009 follow.
Seared tuna (£9.50) was lightly seared, seasoned with pepper and served with a miso aoli (13/20). Soft shell crab maki roll involved good sushi rolls and very nicely cooked deep fried crab with a light batter (14/20). Soft shell crab tempura was very impressive, the crab cooked through properly and the tempura batter ultra-light (15/20). French beans (£4.50) were lightly cooked (possibly a little too al dente) and rested in an XO (pork and dried shrimp) sauce (13/20). Prawn and chive dumplings were excellent, better than I recall on previous visits, lightly steamed and delicate (14/20). Rock shrimp tempura (£16) was as good as ever (easily 14/20). Service is usually excellent here but tonight our waitress seemed a little agitated – the place was completely packed, even on this mid-week evening.
