Made an unplanned visit for dinner last night and were fortunate to find an available table. The staff were charming and food was really delicious. We were steered to a dish neither of us had ever heard of, let alone tried, (a seaweed variation) which was wonderful. But every dish we ordered was equally outstanding. Clearly authentic Japanese; not the... More

Very friendly staff. You need to know your way around Japanese menu and dishes. Enjoyable. I felt Black cod was very poor value.

I love me some Japanese food and this is the most authentic that I've had the pleasure of discovering in London. I particularly love the rice bowls, salmon teriyaki, seafood pancake and sushi - so incredibly delicious and fresh! The complimentary tea that they pour you the second you sit down is a bonus too. There's something for everyone here... More

Hands down the best sushi we have had in London. This restaurant is next door to the Hare and Tortoise, and although it is a bit pricier, you get what you pay for. The sushi is much more flavoursome and authentic and this little restaurant has so much more character. We would recommend eating at the counter so you can... More

Great price for food for lunch at weekends. Very decent quality and it's authentic Japanese food in London, the same as what you would have in Japan:)

In a world awash with poor sushi and fake Asian here is the real deal. A warm simple welcome and expertly prepared food of an excellent and consistent standard in an unpretentious atmosphere. It feels like the genuine local that it is. We go almost weekly and cannot fault anything tried- always extremely fresh and prepared with extraordinary care and... More

Food was ok BUT it was not worth the price - even our 9 year old left hungry after finishing his main course.

Proper traditional Japanese restaurant. You are always welcome with hot green tea and a huge smile (not always found at today's restaurants) All employees are Japanese and the atmosphere as well. I walked in for a quick bite and ended with an amazing dish. I will definitely go back for a bigger meal.

Thank MrGV79
