Sushi legend Hatsushiro Muraoka, fondly known as Papa San, joined forces with chef-partner Ben Bettendorf to open Obi on Long Street. We reported in May that the two saw Obi as an opportunity to showcase the clean flavours of Japanese cuisine, and this they do here with simplicity and skill.

    Loved the food and the calm, simple atmosphere. The aubergine Miso starter was memorable. Good sushi, very fresh. Great service too. Many thanks!

    Exceptional and authentic sushi with really friendly service. It's always nice being warmly greeted by Ben and Papa San and having great sushi in a cosy setting.
