The Chicken Ramen isn't satisfying

I work nearby and saw the sign outside advertising 3 types of ramen - so figured i would give it a try on a cold wintry day. It is a clean tidy take away place, with ample bench seating on one side to accommodate the fast lunch crowd. The chicken ramen was extremely disappointing and... read more

I went here for lunch and had a sit-down chicken katsu curry. The food was tasty and it came in just over my expense budget so I was happy - I wouldn't have paid for it if I wasn't on expenses though. The seating area was adequate for everyone coming in and they brought the food to my table which... More

I had two servings of chicken karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken) and it was pretty good, especially for £7.20. Both of my colleagues got chicken-based dishes (the katsu curry and the weird chicken thigh sandwich) and they also enjoyed them. If you want a really cheap post-work meal and you're near a Tsuru, I recommend it.

Been here many times, but going to keep this review brief. Sushi is so so and doesn't distinguish itself from the likes of Itsu/Wasabi. Trying to charge more for less means I get my sushi fix elsewhere. Hot menu is very average. Nothing that screams 'amazing'. Their katsu curry though is far better than the chains though (not hard), and... More

The food was delicious, but not superb. We ate outside and the service was a little slow. It's convenient and not too much expensive, but I had higher expectations. Ashi beer is fantastic!

Went here for some take-away sushi. There don't have a huge amount of choice, but the sushi was very nice and the sashimi was fresh.

Heard great things about this place in Broadgate. Was hoping to discover a real gem - unfortunately It was very average on the two visits I made and more expensive than I expected.
