This will ‘maki’ your heart sing…

Nikkei cuisine has recently taken the city by storm. If you’re not entirely sure what that means, we have you covered – Nikkei essentially means a person of Japanese descent who has migrated and settled into different parts of the world. How does that translate into food? Well, it means Japanese influence on a multitude of already divine cuisines.

Nevertheless, these restaurants serve up unlimited Japanese dishes alongside wine or house drinks during the week.
