Went there with some Japanese friends. Food was brilliant. Slow cooked pork was very good. Price was reasonable. However the waitress seemed a bit tired and wanted to hit the bed as it was pretty late at night. Please don't think she was impolite.

As a lover of Japanese food, I used to visit Mugen at least once a week over several years when I was working in the City. It is a consistently good place for lunch, though it often gets very busy. There are several Japanese companies in the area, and Mugen serves as a canteen for many expats carving some native... More

We have regularly visited Mugen restaurant and the food, whilst slightly expensive, has always been excellent. The restaurant is always very busy (which is a good sign) and therefore it is always advisable to book. But here is the problem.

Arrived at just after 10. Told to leave by 11. As we didn't order fast enough with staff standing over us were told to leave as staff gathered up drinks and napkin at 10:15. Have never been so insulted and badly treated in my whole restaurant visiting life

This is a regular so I get slightly better service, may need to wait a bit for a table but the counter can be fun. Nice japanese food, ask for the katsu curry sauce thicker but one of the best tasting. Good tempura, my friends enjoy the sushi

Went with a Japanese colleague and we both loved the food (she had sushi, and I had a bento). Not cheap, but the best mid-price Japanese I have found in the City.

I had tempura prawns and vegetables withJapanese prawn and potato curry to follow, was lovely. The staff are very friendly and the bloke who loves Welsh rugby (I don't know his name) is excellent at his job.

Guys, your food is very good but you gotta do something regarding the smell of oil in the place... It stinks. Thanks.
