We are a small independent Japanese grill specialising in kushiyaki.
Kushiyaki consists of skewered meat and fish cooked over charcoal.
We serve a variety of small plates, desserts and sake.
I’ve been twice and the food is very tasty!
Really good food and service. Menu isn’t long which is good as often overwhelming when too much to pick from. Dishes made to a high standard. Staff really friendly.
Really good food and good service. Highlights - Beef skewers, Chicken thigh skewers, Amazing Avacado dish and fantastic curry sauce with the tofu Drinks, your Sake is good and the Asahi draft was really nice Keep it up and we will see you again next year
Lovely place. Portions weren’t big which was good for not feeling stuffed and suited us but others may expect bigger.
Amazing food, kept ordering. Truly attentive staff who knew their stuff and were attentive. We will be back
Laidback Modern Japanese Grill. Great Food.
Visited the restaurant following some positive pre-opening media coverage and recommendations from friends - billed as a more affordable alternative to Higoi. Online booking system was simple to use and staff explained the menu and ethos of the restaurant on arrival. In my option, the food was of a better quality than the price tag attached so was obviously happy. Fully lived up to expectations. Have already recommended to friends and would definitely visit again. A great addition to Nottingham’s food scene and I would be surprised if people aren’t flocking to the restaurant once the reputation builds.
Lovely setting. Food is amazing with relaxed service. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. It was a special occasion for my wife’s birthday and I can honestly say we were not let down. Would definitely book again. Keep up the good work guys.
Fabulous to have good quality ingredients cooked well in Nottingham. Nottingham people need to try this place and get behind it as we just don’t have any good Asian inspired restaurants.
Came for a meal at 6pm so was a little quiet. Attentive and quick service, food good value for money. Tried one of the specials - Jerusalem artichokes deep fried with a ponzu sauce and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD. The beetroot dish was amazing..so tasty. So,e more standard Japanese plates to please people with more traditional expectations. It reminded me of a Gion district restaurant I ate in Kyoto - simple, quick service, paired down menu and a focus on edgy flavours. I’ll be honest I didn’t like the aubergine dish - but I’m not a fan of auberg8ne and it didn’t convert me, but you can’t please everyone !
The food is delicious and so different .I like the informal atmosphere and seeing the chefs in the kitchen . The service was very good .
We loved this visit - great food and brilliant service, all in a really beautiful space!
It was my second time dining at kushi ya, and it was wonderful again.
Amazing pork belly - loved the yuzu sake too.
Food was amazing. Can't wait to come back and try even more. Drinks were great too. Server was lovely, could have had more knowledge on dishes
Good food, great service. Cocktails were amazing
Brilliant thank you
Amazing food, great space, loved the open plan set up. And the sake was great too!
