I have been eating at Itadaki Zen since it first opened. It used to be great. Unfortunately, it has gone down hill. They consistently leave food out of takeaway. This time all of the sushi was left out of one of the set meals, which...More

Had a great meal here. Seaweed tempura was a highlight. I also tried their homemade kimchi - also great. Lovely service. Left happy and relaxed!

We were surprised to find this small vegan restaurant near Kings Cross. Having never eaten Japanese food before (I had been under the false impression that sushi was always fish) this was truly delicious. And very helpful staff to explain and translate. I even managed...More

Well presented tasty food. The meals are mainly set meals which give a little of each but some items can be ordered separately. I found the tempura a little greasy but that's because I'm intolerant of fat. It was easy to pick off the batter....More

It is very zen like, just as the name indicates. It is rare to find a Japanese restaurant only for normal people. This is one of them. There will be no carnivores sitting next to you devouring dead animals. I went for lunch and the...More

Ate here this evening, really enjoyed it. Very small restaurant ~8 tables but very good food. £65 for two people including 4 large bottles of beer. All vegan as expected, tofu is fantastic.

I read many reviews before deciding to visit the restaurant. If your thinking of the same, think again. Itadaki Zen is located near King's Cross, not a prime area. I ordered the udon set meal that came in a merely warm temperature. This is a...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

Hello, I think it may. They are branded organic vegan. But do check their site for confirmation.
