One of the newest Japanese spots in town, this is the place to go if you’re craving authenticity. They import their supplies direct from Japan, and it’s clear they’re all about the experience from the minute you walk through the door, past origami cranes on the front desk and the bamboo screens segmenting the dining room. The decor is simple and clean, and when it’s empty it can feel a wee bit clinical. The food is straight from Japan, from the buckwheat noodles served with chilli flakes to the delectable rolls. The sauces are rich, creamy and full of flavour, and service is fast – they bring out each roll and dish as it’s made, regardless of what’s already on your table. And, despite its chi-chi address, the prices are fairly reasonable: not as cheap as other venues, their portions are still large and, for the freshness, well worth it.

Despite the good quality of food it's simply overpriced and that's the reason it's almost empty every night. Unless they change their prices this will unfortunately stay the same..it's a shame since the Pearl is in desperate need of a good, and affordable(!) Sushi place.
