“You must visit this great Japanese curry house”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

This was a really welcome change to the usual sushi, sashimi and noodles that you find everywhere. I went for lunch and had a selection of starters which were all great value and good sized portions. My favourites were Pork Gyoza (lovely fried dumplings) and the seaweed salad which was ultra fresh combining textures and flavours.

The place was clean and comfortable and the service was friendly and charming. I will definitely return the next time I am in Brixton.

“Excellent Japanese curry in cosmopolitan Brixton”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Having been to Japan many times, I never quite undertood why their lovely, delicious "caari" - the Japanese version of curry - never took off in Europe. Finding this new little spot in Brixton was a real surprise. The place is modern, super clean (yes, in Brixton!) but sightly lacks warmth. Nothing bad with it, as a lot of Itsu customers scream out loud, but my suggestion is just: don't go there for a romantic evening on a first date. On the other hand, the owner and the personnel have this kind and efficient attitude that you find only in Japan, their Asahi biiru (beer) is served as chilled as it should be, and the food is well prepared: curry is properly done, with tender beef and vegetables at the right spiciness (cooked express!) and tori kara age (fried chicken) should win a special jury prize for its crunchiness. Portions are abundant and cheap, and the menu offers a decent number of options. Well, I am not sure how long it will take for people to give up that elastic pizza at Franco Manca's for this new healthy and tasty option in a quiet and relaxing environment.
