Bottomless Brunch At Issho

Issho is the new "in place", oodles of style and the ultimate in chic. Issho is a Japanese restaurant, which has a huge range of sushi and traditional Japanese dishes, served beautifully, artistically and in the most gorgeous rooftop setting in the new Victoria Gate. The restaurant has a rooftop terrace, which is divine and so comfy, on a beautiful day the blue skies and the tops of the buildings in Leeds really made you see the city in a way you haven't before; especially for a native who, after twenty nine years of living here, is a little sick of the sight of it. Issho is one of the reasons why I'm falling back in love with Leeds again. It's trendy and above all, it's top notch food and service.




They recently launched their bottomless buffet which is a buffet of carefully crafted sushi rolls, salads and a choice of warm food. It is £35 per person and if you should wish, you can add a glass of prosecco to your lunch, but the best part is, that is bottomless too! You can eat as much sushi as you wish which includes Robatayki, Bao buns, Maki, Nigiri and Sashimi, available from 12-3pm on Sundays! The whole experience was lovely, and it was definitely worth a try for me. Very laidback atmosphere and no rush at all. The sushi rolls included spicy tuna and salmon, nothing too difficult for the palate so if you're a newbie, this is a great place to come. They offered a beautiful tomato salad in a whipped tofu sauce, which was so delicate and cleansing. Also they had plenty of meat options which were being served by the waiters, so there was always something new to try if you fancied! There were chicken skewers and pork which looked lovely although I stuck to my regular veggies. If you're a vegan, you do not need to worry, there are vegan options too, I was enticed by the gorgeous looking veg rolls, which were just so delicious. I spoke to the head chef who was a delight and she told me that they are the only place in Leeds to offer this kind of buffet which is freshly made sushi prepared in an authentic way. The staff were attentive and friendly, willing to help, discuss the food options in detail; there to make your experience really good and I have always found them to be of a high standard. Some of the dishes I opted for were: chargrilled asparagus, edamame beans, tomato salad, california rolls, veggie rolls, and a type of veg dumpling to start with which was mildly spicy but delicious!






For dessert there was a mix of fresh fruit and caramel sauces, which were a lovely sweet addition to the fruit. Everything was very fresh and the fruit was a beautiful way to refresh after the sushi. You can request your hot food at the table and it will be made to order. It's a brilliant way to finish a day of shopping or even just for that girly trip you've been meaning to take forever. Or impress on a business date, or even show your friends from out of town what Leeds really has to offer at Issho! It's even a brilliant place to pop in for a drink, on the terrace, after work or for a relaxing pitstop.
