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

We were the only sober people dining at the restaurant tonight. We ordered 8 dishes and none of them were any good. It left me wishing that we had gone somewhere else. First off, our waiter had bad BO. Second, he screwed up our order and tempura soba became plain tempura. It then took 30 minutes and repeated requests before... More

Went with my bf on a Wednesday night, was disappointed. The grilled aubergine was not grilled at all, it's more like boiled with some barbecue sauce on it( normally should be miso dressing for it). It tastes bad. My bf doesn't like his udon neither, the noodles were over cooked and soup was not nice. My shirashi was alrite but... More

I tried lunch set Sushi + salmon teriyaki. Very generous portions, good value for money, fresh thick cut sashimi on sushi pieces. Sashimi quality was really good I think,Teriyaki was good but nothing special, and sushi vinegar flavour was rather too light for my preference. The place was very busy with Japanese people, and booking table is recommended. Personally, this... More

If you want a bit of Japan, that the one for you ! Local Japanese people (Japanese school not far !) go there. Never been to Tokyo, but i definately felt like not being in London. Delicious Bento Boxes and Sushi that I order regularly. Above average in terms of price, but worthwhile.

This is a great Japanese restaurant, popular with local Japanese residents. The service has remained high, but I have noticed that they do not provide little welcome dishes upon arrival anymore (cauliflower with a small tasty sauce) or the hot towels at the end of the meal. Despite this however, the good is superb, tasty, delicious...amazing - say no more!... More

Very very nice place, very close to the tube. A nice variety of Asian food, including sushi and soups. The restaurant was fully packed with Asian and local people, which shows how genuine the food is. Definitely a place to go to if you look for an easy going Asian dinner.
