The quality of food and taste was below my expectation based on the reviews given by TripAdvisor as excellent. The place is crowded as I have to wait for 15 minutes to get seated. All in all, good value for money.

Good, affordable lunch menu, great bento boxes. Rather unfriendly managers but after a while you don't mind. Traditional good Japanese food. Very good location

I have been here previously and food was good. service was basic , it has never been great but today the food was sub standard and when we told the waitress she didn't seem to understand and insisted the cold soba was always made wet and soggy - really? I had to argue with her for her to get it... More

We had a nice dinner here - a very good sushi selection, an excellent tofu with tuna, and a really good teriyaki. All of this with drinks for £37 which beats my local takeaway in both price and (especially) price. It is not fancy but highly recommended in terms of price-quality ratio i particular for central London standards.

Food is average, not 'bad' but nothing special. However, their service is well below any reasonable expectations. First of all it is very slow - don't go there if you are in a hurry. Secondly, they brought me a wrong order TWICE - I ordered a grilled salmon and they brought me some kind of a white fish. When I... More

This restaurant is very authentic - my wife is Japanese and I lived there for 10 years so we know our Japanese food. The Sushi is good, tempura and donburi not bad, Yakitori very nice for London and orher things we have tried have been pretty high standard. The service is hit and miss depending on which waiting staff you... More

Imaginative Japanese food, affordable prices and open during the entire day which is a godsend if you are busy and need a very late lunch. Not pretentious in any way. The tables are a mite too close to each other but having regard to the rent they must be paying and the prices on their menu, this is a small... More

Having eaten in many Japanese restaurants in London this restaurant by far is probably the worst service I have ever experienced. The waiter who served us was rude and so unhelpful. He almost took out menus away whilst ordering as if to say he couldn't help us anymore. We ahead to speak to the manger or owner who turned out... More
