Outstanding store just on the outskirts of town. Just come back with a NES, SNES and N64 haul of Track and Field II, Super Mario Kart and Ocarina of Time.

The service is absolutely first class. He's... on hand to offer advice, ideas and discuss games. Very personal experience.

I will 100% be going back to add to my collections!

I wandered in and bought a mega drive with a couple of games at a good price. When I got home, I realised one of the games wasn't in the box due to common human error. I'm not local to Cardiff and so ...messaged them on here to state this and they sent me my game plus an apology via another game! Sonic spin all! Blast from the past!
It was resolved so quickly without any fuss. Would most certainly buy from these guys again!

Travelled from Devon to visit the store today and walked from the city centre with my 4yo as she was hoping to find a Sailor Moon or Power Ranger figure and I was looking for some new hardware for my ...Retro Collection and hopefully a new Eva.
Arrived 10:15 and checked Fb to see they open 10:30 so took a walk around the area til then and then loitered outside for 20 mins and noone turned up, no note on the door or replies to my post on Facebook so left.
Stock 'looked' good through the window but the fact you can't open when your meant to left us both very disappointed over our wasted trip.
Spent a shitload in Forbidden Planet instead.

Paid my first visit to Super Tomato yesterday after many of my gamer friends raving about it. I was absolutely floored by how much there was available. Whether you're a Sega, Playstation or a Nintendo... fan there was so much choice and loads of other games for other formats and consoles too...you name it they had it. Picked up a few awesome games, the service was spot on. Highly recommended and not far from the city centre either! See More

Super Tomato is an amazing little retro gaming/Manga store, stacked high full of consoles, games, Anime and Manga to take you back to days of nostalgia. As avid game collectors, my fiance and I manage...d to get Pokemon Blue, Tetris and a Mega Drive copy of Power Rangers for a decent price. The guy who ran the store was very knowlegable and helpful :)

Our Geeky souls have been satisfied :)

Highly recommended!

Hi
I would just like to say thank you to the staff in the shop today. I came in with my 18yr old son Dan who has autism. He loves your shop and knows exactly what he's looking for. On a daily basis pe...ople stare and sometimes even laugh at him when we're out in a mainstream setting.
It was so refreshing to come into your shop and b treated with respect and dignity.
Thanku
Jenny and Dan Williams.

Visited today with intention to buy a Dreamcast as mine has nearly had its day. Was advised by shop staff to try a few fixes for mine before purchasing one from them. Very honest and pleasant folks...... Will be making regular visits from now on =) See More

Everything I could ever want from a gaming shop - super knowledgeable staff and an amazing collection of all things nostalgic (plus some rarities). I could've spent a fortune! Just happened to be down... from Milton Keynes visiting a friend this weekend. Will be making excuses to meet up again as this shop and I have unfinished business! See More
