Our daughter took us to this lovely restaurant just on catford Broadway. A pleasant place with friendly staff. It wasn't that busy for a Saturday but that's didn't bother us. We had gyozo pork and beg for starters with plum wine and some Kirin beer. For mains we had beef curry mixed veg noodles and rice amongst other dishes. Very reasonably priced, great service and good food. Highly recommended.

The restaurant has been in Catford for many years which is fantastic to see.
Large and spacious room where you can sit at a Western style table or feel like you are sitting on the floor where you put your feet in the sunken floor.
Delicious food and drink at very reasonable prices even the cocktails.

After a couple of years going past this we decided to give it a go mid week and immediately regretted that we had never been here before. It hits just the right note for a neighbourhood restaurant, has a really nice feel to it and is not too formal. Now I've been there I can imagine popping in just to get some bubble tea (I can't believe I never knew about the bubble tea- I told them to advertise it on the outside) and I think it should also be viewed as a cafe.
The service was good and prompt, it was fun sitting in the sunken table and all the food tasted very fresh. We had some sushi and some prawn sticks. Everything tasted very fresh. The sushi may not have had some of the finesse of central London sushi places, in that the sushi pieces were quite large, but then you do get more for your money.
They also have a lot of really interesting drinks eg different types of hot chocolate, alcoholic drinks as well as the bubble drinks.
It's hard to see through to the restaurant because of the way the entrance is arranged, but don't let that put you off, it doesn't feel intimidating at all when you have walk in.
