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!

Wanting a good sushi, and sashimi , is a difficult thing for me. Although there are many sushi establishments in north west London, I find most are at best below average.

A lot of Japanese restaurants fall short of the mark and end up disappointing, so its a testament to the quality that we have come back to Wow time and time again. All the staff are super efficient, friendly and... More

While the restaurant itself is rather unremarkable outside and in, the food is anything but. We took advantage of their special lunchtime menu yesterday and the food was delicious, freshly cooked and beautifully presented and served. Following the miso soup, I had a vegetarian bento box which featured crisp vegetable tempura, tasty tofu, a green salad, rice and melon to... More
