So hospitable and friendly. Food amazing - fresh, delicious and plenty of choice. Walk past at your peril... more than worth a visit. We will be back!

You could be fooled into walking past this place but if you do, you’re mad. The food is amazing! Real quality sushi with fantastic service. If you’re in London and don’t come here, you’re missing out. This place should should be permanently packed to the...rafters!More

Excellent family run Japanese restaurant tucked in basement on Strutton Ground in the heart of Victoria. Great menu at reasonable price. Food was excellent and service nice and quick. This is a small restaurant but the food and variety is superb. This will be a...regular haunt of mine.More

super bad experience with this restaurant. the portion was small and the Udon broth was heated with MICROWAVE! I couldn't believe it and it is overpriced with mediocre quality. Nirigi was just alright but they changed £17 for a set of Udon and Nigiri. Worst...of all, this waiter was like, "no service charge was included", in another word we "requiring" you to tip us but the service wasn't very good and we felt like the food was overpriced so we refused to tip them and on they way out, the "waiter" gave me a dead look and said something in "non-English" sounding very condescending, we knew they were talking trash about us so it made the whole experience even worse. Tip is supposed to be given to good service, not "required", he definitely didn't deserve it.More

This place does fabulous sushi ! Mostly I’m disappointed with London sushi but this place restored my faith. I guess it’s family owned - the Dad being the sushi chef appears to have been here since the 1980s but can barely string 2 English words...together. The elder son does the serving (I’m guessing all this). Anyway not to worry the menu is wide, wide, wide... temperature of sushi perfect. Atmosphere intimate. Facilities basic - price reasonable. All in I defy you to be disappointed.More

Very small place, supposedly a family business with the chef working right in front of you like it should be. I had a selection of nigiri for lunch and it was top level. Not overly expensive either. Highly recommended.

Easy to miss this little place which is downstairs from the street. It’s small, cosy and traditional. I sat at the counter and had the ichiriki special with miso soup. All beautifully prepared and fresh, sushi isn’t filling but it is tasty and I certainly...enjoyed this. I’d certainly recommend and it’s fairly priced.More

When I looked at the menu online the selection looked really tempting so I was really looking forward to visiting. The restaurant is small & cosy which is reminiscent of establishments in Japan though looks a bit scruffy. Was torn what to order but opted...for the udon set as it looked most filling for the price. My heart sank when the sushi appeared - they were tiny & each piece was barely larger than a long fingernail. As other reviewers have pointed out, the rice used appears to be long grain rather than short grain which is that it should be. Hand roll was nothing special & was short on filling. The curry udon was a small handful of noodles in a bit of curry sauce in an oversized bowl. I don't usually have carbs so they tend to fill me up when I have them & yet I didn't leave feeling like I had enough to eat. Extremely disappointed with this establishment. Don't trust the reviews or the pictures online as the reality is quite different.More

Just off Victoria street, this little place is very easy to miss, especially on a dark January night. However, follow the narrow staircase (always intriguing) below the bright red paper lantern outside and you’ll find a real hidden gem of a restaurant. Be under no...illusion, this is not your swish, West-End Japanese, but that’s no bad thing as the prices are great given the location. Seating is limited as it’s not a huge place but service is friendly (the trainee chap who served us was fantastic) and the atmosphere pleasant. The menu includes a variety of hot and cold dishes. Lovely, fresh salmon and tuna sashimi and light, crispy tempura batter coating reassuring large king prawns were particular highlights. Dinner for two including two soft drinks (wine, beer, sake and tea also are available) was £54 excluding service, and we have fairly healthy appetites. If you’re in the area it’s a great place to eat, and if you want good value sushi it’s worth going out of your way to try this place.More

Me and my family loved sushi here! There was a lot of choice and the prices were moderated. The place is very small and not really cozy, but the food is excellent and the staff as well. I recommend this

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
