    We visited as a birthday treat for our son, he wanted sushi so we booked here as it was rated top on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed, the staff were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. The chef even took a little time to explain to the boys what he was doing as he worked on our dishes. Helpful advice on what to order and absolutely stunning presentation and flavours. There is a reason this is rated top. Well worth a visit, book though as it is a small chic establishment. Well done, you deserve all the praise you receive and more. Many thanks for making a birthday treat a birthday experience.

    Amazing sushi. So enjoyable to see chef at work. The s as salmon belly was to die for. Had two portions. The blue fin tuna was super. The plum wine, sake and best sushi. Can’t wait to go again.

    It is a pleasure to find this nice Sushi Bar in Birmingham. The staff is very friendly. The Sashimi assortments are fresh and delicious. The sea urchin is very nice and served beautifully. I have not had a chance to try the nigiri or speak to the Chef yet, but will definitely come back again.

    This is the best sushi I've had the pleasure of eating. I've tried multiple Sushi restaurants in and around Birmingham and none of them compare. Michal is an artist. The food is always prepared carefully and beautifully and is, without question, absolutely delicious! I dined at Gaijin with my girlfriend and the waiter promptly seated us, and took our orders as soon as he could. The restaurant is very small, so I can understand that the waiter is constantly busy, but he is very efficient, kind, and attentive to the customers - he even helped us pick some Sake to try and described each one! The prices are actually really good for the quality you're getting, and I honestly cannot wait to dine here again.

    Possibly the best sushi I have had outside LA (I haven’t been to Japan yet). Amazing value for money, far better than London big name sushi restaurants. Incredible freshness and delicacy in all the items. Great service. Try the Uni on weekends, it’s like eating the sea and sky in each mouthful. We will return again and again.

    100% the best sushi i've had in birmingham... possibly ever?? It's hard because i've had a lot of great sushi, some in krakow in particular that probably rivals this. Honestly everything was the venue, to the staff, to the food was fantastic. Only a small venue, 1 table and then seats at the counter where the food is prepared so ensure you book but likely you'll be at the counter as in most authentic sushi places. We had 2 rounds of 3 dishes each and this was more than enough as the portions were nice and big. Anything with soft shell crab or surf clam was particular good and also any of the futomaki which we tried all of, was great. I would go back here in a heartbeat, and to be honest currently the prices are very reasonable considering its the kind of place that could be michelin star at some point so i'd get in now

    Can’t recommend this place enough. Amazing food, the flavours incredible. The salmon belly was just fantastic... The service was outstanding & it was so lovely to chat to the chef whilst he was cooking, so interesting to hear about different components of the menu..can’t wait to return! Thank you for a very lovely evening..

    We ate here once before and finally got around to coming back. You do need to book in advance and you pay a reservation fee in case of a no show. The place is small with around 10 seats at the bar and two small tables. We were seated at the bar and tried a several dishes, including soft shell crab, sea urchin and sashimi. The only thing not to my taste was the sea urchin, but I am really pleased to have tried it. The food is very reasonably priced, but the alcohol has a pretty high mark up, but we enjoyed a bottle of wine. Still a great place and we will return.

    Visited Friday evening for the third time. I love this place so much, have followed the chef on his journey from a previous restaurant to here and he is awesome. Both the chef and service team are so friendly and extremely talented. The sushi is easily the best i’ve eaten and i couldn’t ask for anything more from a sushi spot. 5 stars, more if I could :)

    First time visit, after high praise from a sushi-loving friend, and I wasn't disappointed. Really excellent sushi, and great, friendly service. It's a small restaurant, and everything is handmade, fresh, just as it should be, and the service is as attentive as you'd expect with less than 20 seats! But the best bit was the food - highly recommended

    I was extremely excited to try this place out. It was bigger than I expected, as I thought it was just seats at the chefs bar, but they had a couple of tables away from the cooking station. As there were three of us, we were seated at one of the tables instead of the chefs bar - which was a shame. However, the service was still fantastic and the food was delicious. When booking the table make sure to mention any allergies, this isn't prompted so make sure you remember. I forgot to mention my prawn allergy prior to arriving - but they were super accommodating (even though it created a lot more work for them). Highly recommend the plum wine, nigiri platter and the coconut and chocolate mochi... Delicious!!

    Easily the best sushi restaurant in Birmingham. Some would say it’s expensive, but quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten.

    So it turns out that the best Japanese restaurant is in the heart of Birmingham and the very best sushi is created by a Polish chef. I have had many excellent meals and many delicious meals but this was in a class of its own. Seated around the bar, you watch chef Michal Kubiak skilfully make your sushi. Guided by the charming Polish waiter we ordered the assorted Nigiri platter - every mouthful was exquisite but highlights were the smoked eel and the sweet scallops. We had one final dish of heavenly salmon to conclude an exceptional experience.

    A lovely dinner here, inc miso, seaweed salad, nigiri, sashimi, hand roll, hosomaki roll etc. Every single piece was created with passion and precision by the lovely chef/owner and delivered with great care and attentiveness by the friendly waiter. (They have known each other for 11 years apparently, and it shows!) The setting was perfect, with minimalist decor and low level music, very relaxing. We loved our meal (my partner has eaten at Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo, so he’s a tough crowd! 😀) and really hope this neighbourhood restaurant continues to get the support it deserves. Thanks guys!

    Went here with my girlfriend and had a fantastic experience. Sitting at the bar gave us an intimate dinner sat watching the incredibly skilled chef work. The waiter was friendly and helpful and made our experience much better. He recommended the crispy prawn and eel Futomaki, probably one of the best dishes I've ever tasted. This place is worth going to and we were more than happy to spend above our usual budget as the quality of food deserved it. Will be returning in the future and this has cemented sushi as a favourite of ours.

    Very good quality fish. I got the nigiri set for one (£25) and added sake toro (salmon belly), which is seared aburi style. Were I to come again, I'd get lots of bluefin tuna, sweet shrimp, and sake toro--those were the highlights! But it was a great meal and price. Nice interior. Crappy neighborhood.
