I love pompoko. It can be hard to get a table because it's so manically popular but if you manage to get one it's oh sooo good! The food is super cheap.. (Last time we went we had 3 starters, 2 mains, paid for corkage and it was still under £20! It also happens to be delicious.. Really delicious. Not... More

Have been a few times with friends who rate the place so highly, the foods cheap and fairly cheerful but I don't think it deserves the hype. The last time I went I ordered a veggie tofu dish only to find some kind of meat in it! I complained and the waitresses were apologetic and provided me with a new... More

But i ordered some prawn crackers & they were stale & tasted like they have been lying around for days.And I also ordered some chicken teryika on sticks. The chicken teryika was awful it was very chewy & slimy. So i asked for my money back and they refused to... More

If you decide to eat here despite the cramped room and freezing temperatures then you will be greeted with happy faces and get lovely food. However on my recent and final visit here I, as a vegetarian, ordered a sesame tofu dish and was really excited about this as the price is reasonable and the food is delicious so I... More

There were many kinds of 'Don' with the price around £4.7 The price was good, but the flavor was just OK. We went to eat twice, but we found some Don was too salty, or some Don was given rare sauce on the rice. Sometimes we felt the rice was too hard due to not cooking enough. By the way,... More

pompoko is a tiny café but with very friendly staff and tasty food at reasonable prices. I think its a 'quick eat though' its too small to get comfy and lunchtimes seem to be very busy. well worth a visit.

Lovely little friendly place, food is really good and very reasonably priced, always busy which in this case is a good sign, service is quick. Go here instead of the big chain Japanese places nearby and you won't be dissapointed

This is a simple restaurant which serves good food at a very reasonable price. You can pay around £5 for a meal. It does not sell alcohol but you can bring your bottle of wine if you wish. It does not accept credit cards. Just cash.

Ok so it's no fine dining experience but if you want to grab some really tasty food served very fast to take home for a night in it is the best! My all time favourite takeaway! The steamed dumplings are ridiculous, I could easily just eat them all day! But then I wouldn't have room for the lovely rice bowl... More
