The food was yummy and the waiter attentive. The decoration/ambiance could have been a bit more touched up. In the end, we were very surprised to see the waiter stepping out of the restaurant after we had overpaid to return the difference, as service charge was already included. Never happened before, and don't think will ever again!

Having read the glowing reviews by other readers and taking advantage of a special offer from Amex cards, I went there to experience this for myself. First, I noticed the Bangladeshi waiter greeting all the Japanese visitors with an enthusiastic 'Gosai masta' but not others and then noticed him wiping the spoons with his fingers before placing them before customers....

Went here for a meal with friends one evening after always wanting to try this place - I'm a big fan of Japanese food and had heard good things about Kiraku. We were greeted with cries of "irasshaimase!" when we walked into the place, which certainly added to the experience! Unlike many of the well-known inner city Japanese joints, Kiraku... More

this is the most authentic Japanese restaurant I have found in London. It's good value and don't believe some of the other reviews. In Tokyo you would pay twice the price. Will definitely go there again, the noodle hot pot is great, and the sushi is top quality. Simple decoration, but the food shows the typical attention to quality you... More

I wouldn't normally go I'm to a place for a business lunch if from the outside it looks like a greasy spoon ! Once in and seated though you get over it, watch a bit a Japanese tele and order loads of stuff because it's really reasonable. The food was brilliant, the wine list is rubbish though. If you like...

I have been here numerous times for my sushi fix & have always enjoyed it, I must say. The staff are very courteous, polite and attentive. Always a great atmosphere.

My wife and I reserved a table here though the restaurant was quiet when we arrived but was nearly full soon after. The Katsu curry was excellent and as a set meal was served with miso soup, rice, salad and a little fruit. We ordered nigiri as a starter but it came after the set meal as the sushi chef... More

My husband and I used to live within minutes of Kiraku and we always enjoyed our meals here. From the Bara chirashi and soft shell crab roll have always been our favourites. They also have some great octupus dumplings and yummy green tea ice-cream. Great, attentive service and friendly staff. Pair that with fresh ingredients... what more can you ask... More

We thought we go to Kiraku instead of the usual Central London offers, the food definitely up to standard but the prices are expensive, offering smaller portions and inflated prices. The service was poor, constantly having to flag down staff and when staff eventually came they were rude and blunt. Would not recommend Kiraku unless you were prepared to spend... More

This was easily the best Japanese food I have ever had (and I have had quite a lot!). Service was great, although all our food didn't come out at the same time, but not so long a wait as to let the rest go cold! And to be fair they were quite busy. The only downside to this meal was... More
