Three of us went as a pre theatre lunch. Tiny place just away from the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden. The sushi was wonderful, the tuna was sooo fresh and tasty. My daughter ate tons of the salmon which was lovely too. She loves Yo! but they are getting expensive and poor so we tried hear - she wants... More

Best sushi for your money. Fresh large portions, great choice and very reasonable. Highly recommended, alone or with company.

In my days of extreme sushi addiction I was going to Kulu Kulu two or three times a week, either this one or the Brewer Street branch. I love it. Great food, reasonably priced. Free green tea. Favourite dishes inclued the soft shell crab hand rolls, the potato salad (really), the miso aubergine and the spinach with peanut sauce.

I happened upon Kulu Kulu at lunchtime and dropped in unsure what to expect. It's a bit like a mini, less flashy, Yo Sushi, but with much better food. A look at the conveyor revealed nice, large and freshly made morsels moving around, with a couple of busy chefs in the middle. I ordered a 10 piece takeaway which arrived... More

This is my favourite sushi restaurant in London. There is so much choice on the conveyer belt. Some reviewers complain that the staff are not attentive; they are attentive! They just leave you alone to enjoy your meal, which I appreciate. If you want something, ask for it! The food is good for vegetarians too. All hail kulu kulu!

We were looking around for some sushi before the theatre and spotted this restaurant on the internet. The surroundings are a bit jaded and uninspiring, reminded me of a 60's café invaded by the Japanese. The staff were very friendly and clearly this is a spot favoured by "people in the know". Was the food any good ? It was... More

Popped in for Friday lunch on the dot of 12 when they open and the food was coming onto the conveyor thick and fast. 5 dishes cost me £11.50 with the current 10% discount, which is great value for delicious sushi and good portions, especially in this part of London. So much better than Yo sushi and with some interesting... More

Good - Large portions. Tuna and chicken karage, salmon ebi hand rolls and sashimi are all excellent. Reasonable prices despite recent price hike. Friendly service. Not so good. If you go when it's not so busy - the selection on the conveyor belt can be pretty slim. Conclusion Great for light lunch, quick evening meal with friends. As it's all... More

Found this chestnut whilst browsing online and walking round covent garden. It's not much to look at from the outside, but once your in there it's very reasonable price wise for the area and the food is great. I don't usually go for the salmon dishes, but they were irresistible. The atmosphere was good and everybody was chatty and enjoying... More
