“Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you want a no frills cheap place to eat with surprisingly good food this is it. I have been there a few times with various friends and have always been well pleased. It is a friendly place; you have to be friendly because you are so close to the other diners. Give it a try.

Lovely, fresh, filling food for a great price. Great for a quick lunch or dinner with friends or if you fancy great Japanese food. Will be back! :)

“Brilliant food and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I'd been meaning to visit Pompoko for a while due to stories from friends of delicious Japanese food at a bargain price. Whist reading the menu outside of the restaurant, a group was leaving, and urged us to try the food here, stating that it was delicious - always a good sign. The place is small, and it may be difficult to find a seat at the weekend, however, the turnover of food is so quick that you'd never be waiting long. The restaurant is small enough that you may have to share your table with another group.
There are plenty of dishes including vegetarian options and more traditional foods (eels?). The food is fresh, filling and tasty.

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

If you want a quick and cheap bite to eat then Pompoko is the place! You can bring your own drinks (very convenient with a Tesco around the corner) and stay for as long or as short as you want!
