Tasty food, expensive for portion size and the waiters tried to get us out very quickly (gave us the bill before the desert menu)

fairly limited menu, however, most of the items were done exceptionally well. Positives: Bao buns, Grill items OK: Sashimi set, Gyoza Prices are suitable, friendly and attentive service.

I took my husband here for his birthday and had a lovely time. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. They also gave my husband the most amazing complimentary dessert bowl for his birthday. Would definitely return! Thank you!

We had a fabulous eve. The food was delicious and beautifully served and very original. We loved the huge choice and it was very social as we shared the dishes. The staff were really well informed and helpful. Thanku for the birthday candles in my sons pudding.

Mocktails were very sweet and needed a little more work with the mixing. Small vergitarian options but the fish selection was excellent. Really good value for money.

Saw an advert for restaurant on Instagram and instantly tagged my friend in the post my mouth was watering by looking at the pics. My first time visiting the restaurant and you did not disappoint. Restaurant is very cute, clean and stylish. Love the sign next to the window saying ‘ you used to be my cup of tea now I drink sake’. Welcomed warmly by staff who showed us to our seats. It’s so lovely to be greeted with a smile and a hello. I ordered the short rib bao bun and WOW I didn’t want it to end, light, tasty, full of flavour and the ribs was cooked perfectly. Lovely pre theatre dinner. Can not wait to go back again.

Amazing food & drink but the waitress was quite rude. It's a shame it wasn't busier for a Friday lunch.

Absolutely amazing service by the staff at robata even gave my girlfriend a little birthday ice cream. Food was out of this world. Soft shell crab sushi roll was beautiful. Could not fault our visit will definitely be coming back.

Toilets were a bit grubby and there was no toilet roll. That was the only thing that let the restaurant down. Food and wine were amazing

Customer service was great. And the food came out relatively quickly. Important to note that the plates may be quite some for someone with a big appetite but it was fine for me.

Sadly I wouldn't recommend this place as I found a maggot in my meal. It was sent back and another dish cane in its place but honeslty it just makes me question the cleanliness of their kitchen and how something so awful could occur:/

Atmosphere great but the portion sizes are miniscule... we ordered a shrimp dish for GBP13 and they brought 1 piece... So ended up paying far more than you would expect.
