This established family-run restaurant combines elegance and romance with a contemporary yet cosy atmosphere. The clean lines of glass tables are combined with a traditional seating area offering the tatami experience of floor-level Oriental dining. Mood lighting that changes colour creates a magical atmosphere, further enhanced by truly outstanding food. There are plenty of tables and chairs too, and for large groups there's a stunning function room complete with a state-of-the-art karaoke machine.

We began our tatami experience with deep-fried crab claws served in a crispy noodle basket. I also sampled sushi of raw salmon and avocado wrapped in sticky rice, before tucking into crunchy spring rolls. The soft pink salmon main melted in the mouth, and was complemented by punchy black bean with a hint of chilli. The accompanying fresh veg was the perfect palate-cleanser, bringing contrast and colour. Scallops in oyster sauce were luxurious, while the steamed rice with pineapple and cashews was further proof of the creativity of those at work in the kitchen. Indeed, it was a delight to see such a large selection of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes on the menu.

To round off our Oriental adventure, I had a unique herbal tea - an infusion of jasmine, lily and green tea, lent a little theatre thanks to the flowers floating on its surface. We'll certainly be back to sample more from this accomplished restaurant. The full menu is also available to take away, so you can indulge in a little wonder wherever you choose
