Expert review of Willoughby & Co

Arguably the best sushi spot in the city, you'll also find a host of seafood options too.

Don't let the fact that one of the city's best-loved (and one of my favourites) eateries is situated slap bang in the middle of a mall. Once you've sampled their contemporary and more traditional sushi offerings or perhaps tucked into a pan of prawns or calamari, you'll know why there are always queues for tables and sushi counter seats here.

Food and drink: 

Sushi, seafood, noodles and grills are served, and there is a seafood-friendly wine list.

Recommended dishes: 

I'm a fan of bites from the Japanese kitchen here and I struggle to order anything beyond the rainbow roll reloaded - they're that good. That said, there are dim sum to choose from, noodles and the fabulous soft shell crab with pinzu sauce is delectable. Some say their rock shrimp tempura are the best in the city. Despite the extensive menu, simple eats like their battered fish and chips are very, very good.

Ambience: 

This busy spot is crammed to the hilt most lunch and dinner times. I love that I feel as comfortable popping in for a bite on my own, on movie and date night or with a bunch of girlfriends for a gossip.

Service: 

The service here is quick and efficient but can be stretched.

Location: 

In the V&A Waterfront.

Price advice: 

Average main courses and signature sushi and Japanese kitchen offerings are 75 rand.

Tables to book: 

Booking not available. I like the sushi counters for people watching and the buzz.
