FAQ

nutritionals & allergens

1. Where can I find out more nutritional / allergen information about your products?

You can find our nutritional and allergen product information on our menu online here. You can also filter our menu by dietary requirement, including dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan, to find out what’s suitable for you. If youa’re in store, just ask any of our Team Members and they will print you a receipt containing all the product information.

2. Is your fish safe for pregnant women?

Our tuna and salmon are considered safe to eat raw. Our salmon is EU farmed, pellet fed and individually inoculated, which means it’s exempt from the requirement to be frozen prior to being eaten raw or lightly cooked. Our tuna is deep frozen to a temperature at or below -60 (insert degrees symbol) C, however each pregnancy is unique to an individual so it’s best to liaise directly with your GP.

3. Are your products halal?

Unfortunately, our meat products are not halal certified. Our sushi rice contains rice wine vinegar and our miso soup contains low levels of alcohol, so unfortunately any products including those ingredients are also not halal.

4. I want to know the portion weights in your products.

Because all our products are made by hand, it is impossible to get exact weights for all our products. Our calories are deducted based on an average weight and for more specific information, please email us.

menu

1. Why don't you sell all your products in all your stores?

Our stores come in a range of sizes which means that sometimes we dona’t have space to sell all our products. We try to ensure that our most popular products are always available, but if there’s something you feel is constantly missing, just let us know.

sustainability & sourcing

1. Are your eggs free range?

Yes, all our eggs are free range.

2. How do I find out more about your ingredient sourcing?

Please go to the sourcing section of our website here.

3. Is your packaging recyclable?

We currently recycle all our back of store waste and the majority of our sites are zero to landfill. Our napkins, paper bags, plastic cups and lids are widely recyclable. Our sushi boxes and soup cups and lids are recyclable where facilities exist and they need to be plastic coated for food safety reasons, which is why they have specific recycling requirements.

promotions & discounts

1. Do you offer a student discount?

We offer a 15% student discount in all of our stores, providing you’ve got some evidence to show you’re a student. Lucky thing.

2. How does your half-price sale work?

Half an hour before closing, all our sushi and salad is available at half price. We think this helps reduce waste as well as giving you a little treat at the end of the day.
