Here are notes from a meal in June 2007.

A particularly fine meal this evening. The wine list was surprisingly extensive and features several excellent growers such as Ata Rangi and Mas de Daumas Gassac; mark-ups are not generous, though. We began with mackerel rolls, excellent sushi with good rice and tasty mackerel filling (15/20). Tuna was seared and served with slivers of fried garlic and salad (15/20). Dynamite spider crab roll featured three excellent sushi crab rolls and two that had fine shell crab, cooked through properly (16/20). Prawn tempura was also good, with delicate batter and lovely prawns (15/20).

Particularly enjoyable were langoustines marinated with chilli, ginger and lime, then roasted (16/20). Asparagus was excellent, half a dozen spears of tender asparagus with sesame and wafu (15/20). Relatively speaking, the sea bass with burnt tomato and ginger relish was the least good dish, though it was correctly cooked; it was just a little bland (14/20).  Salmon teriyaki had very tender salmon with classic teriyaki sauce (16/20), and rice was fine. Finally a chocolate fondant was also capable (14/20), and service was very efficient. The salmon was £13.80, tempura £8.80, langoustines £15.80. Ingredients are high quality and the technical execution of the kitchen is unusually capable.
