    The food is good but the lady working there was very unwelcoming and not very nice to us for no reason. That has been highlighted more than once by different people of our group who dealt with her several times yesterday. We were also charged 100€ more for things we haven’t ordered the previous time we were there, while the money was refunded, we could have easily not noticed the extra amount haven’t we double checked after we paid. Such a shame because the food and the general ambiance is really nice.

    Had a fabulous time for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. Music was great, ambience was warm and lively, they made us drinks which we requested that weren't on the menu which was lovely and the staff and service was second to none. Really good vibes and the waiters and waitresses made us feel really at ease and chilled. The food was delicious, we especially loved the spider roll norimaki, the fish tacos, the chicken gyoza and the pork bao buns. definitely would recommend!!!

    Food was fabulous! Spider role was just delicious. Super friendly staff - minor complaint was that staff didn’t check up on us of their own accord - but whenever we did wave for assistance someone was straight over and very friendly. Gorgeous interior. Immaculate vibes.

    Our first time eating here, we were a party of 8. The food was delicious, so fresh and flavoursome. Cocktails were also very good! Great service, couldn't fault it. Rebooked it for another night in December mid way through our dinner as food was so good! Definitely recommend it.

    Seat was broken when I sat down. Offered me a different seat with no arm rests like the original. Korean chicken was pink in the middle. Dragon rolls were not fresh could tell the rice was probably from a couple of days ago. Food came out within 5-10 mins so should of known. Chicken gyoza tasted like they came from a cheap frozen supermarket. Only thing positive was the cocktail were nice but yet very pricey all together would not recommend. Service wasn't very inviting either. At €70 would rather of not bothered.

    Food was great as always. My only complaint would be that it took us over 20 minutes to be served after we were seated and then we were rushed off our table in the end. We are both fast eaters too thankfully.

    For a Japanese restaurant at the the rice must be cooked right. The rice for sushi was maybe only half way cooked so it was very hard. The Oyster were over sauced/ seasoned making it way to salty. The so called mochi ice cream was not really eatable. Making the Miso soup and the sake only the ok things we had here.

    Pretty poor. We had a table of a few of us. Food took a while to arrive, but there were large gaps between the food arriving so some people had to wait. My meal never arrived and my friends soup didn’t arrive. When I asked what happened, the first server didn’t come back. When the second server asked on how we were getting on, he apologised that it hadn’t been out through, which happens. One of my friends said her meal was inedible. When we came to pay the bill, the last server had a really bad attitude. She kept huffing and rolling her eyes when we had to pay each of our portions of the bill. We go out as a group every week and this was by far the worst experience.

    Disappointing service let Ukiyo down on our visit. We requested not to be seated on benches but we were were only offered benches, without apology. We had to negotiate seating at a table with chairs. We waited a long time after being seated for menus. Eventually we got up and got them ourselves. We waited again to place our orders before having to get up (again!) and go find someone to whom to place our order. After placing our orders we were waiting a long time for our orders to be delivered. Some of our party were waiting a long time for their order after others at our table had been served which was awkward for everyone. There was no recognition by staff of the poor service they were offering our group. All that said, Ukiyo is in a good location and has outdoor seating (in the shade in the evenings, which is lovely on a hot day). The wines are good. Those of my party who had cocktails enjoyed them. And the selection of small and large plates means a group can choose options to suit their appetites.

    Food was delicious and good value but service let the experience down. We had to ask the first round of drinks 3 times with a half hour wait to receive and the second round only slightly better as had to ask twice for as well. We were asked by waitress if we would leave a tip and then kicked off table (we were leaving anyway as had closed bill by that point) Had been excited to go back to ukiyo post Covid but won’t be returning

    Our server was spectacular. Killer was his name. A really pro caring attentive restaurateur. The music was a bit intense but low ish enough to ignore haha. Food was beyond. Last time I was the re the truffle sushi had no taste of truffles. So I don't order this time but that would epic if it did taste of truffles. Love fusion Sushi!
