Much to my relief the menu couldn't be more helpful and even to the lay sushi-eater all was made clear – though if you do want to try a little bit of everything then you could do worse than start with a Bento Box, which covers lots of bases. If you’re free-styling it I'd also recommend mixing the smaller sashimi and nigiri dishes with the more filling hot dumplings and skewers. On our visit the traditional roles, cones and sashimi, delicious gyoza and edamame were all delivered in double quick time by friendly waiters. Once one dish was devoured a new tempting option would arrive and replace the last as our new favourite.Value for money is a hard one to pick, the quantities were modest but we left full for £15 per head and the fish was especially fresh, the rice thick and sticky, and seaweed nice and crisp. Sushi is the kind of food that it’s probably not a good idea to try and do cheaply and Taberu delivered what felt like high quality and authentic Japanese food at a decent price.
A bottle of Asahi and copious amounts of soy sauce washed it all down a treat and we'll definitely be back for more, especially to try some of the main dishes like the ramen and stir frys. Essentially, if you're craving a Red Star but feeling up market then Taberu is for you.
