Cosy neighbourhood Japanese popular with locals

We came to this restaurant with family and friends from Asia to try out the Japanese food and were thrilled by the food presentation and quality. The staff were all so friendly and attentive and the owner of the restaurant, Mr Kim, came each time to check that everything was alright and the food was up to our expectations. We... More

Stumbled upon this place in crouch end and decided to give it a try. Have to say all the sauces were too sweet. Aubergine with miso and Soba noodles were not great. Tofu was too firm unlike normal Japanese ones. All in all a bit of a disappointment.

I would go for the bento boxes which are great value. The tempura's wonderful and the yakisoba makes for a good value lunch.

Love the tofu steaks, chicken katsu curry, miso soup and sushi. Chicken teriyaki could be better but still pretty good. We're regular visitors and for take-away and they always do good food with good customer service. Would definitely recommend

We had a dissapointing sushi takeaway from wow. The sushi was falling apart and had clearly been madeby a novice untrained individual. Would certainly not return.

I visit this restaurant whenever I'm in the area and have never once had a bad meal, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone, unless you don't like Sushi/Sashimi!
