Specialising in the freshest sushi, as well as many favourite Japanese hot dishes such as teriyaki and tempura, once you taste our food you’ll soon realise why we’ve remained for so many years a popular destination for authentic Japanese food in London.

“Quite a gem with lovely sushi & reasonably priced too.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Went there just now after hearing good things for few years now. Must admit golders green is not my first choice for hanging out, but it was well worth the visit!
Very good sushi, the starters were good too. Highly recommanded!

“Good Sushi for years and years”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I have been going to Cafe Japan for over 10 years and it never disappoints though I don't think the menu is as good as it used to be.

Sushi itself is excellent quality and not too expensive, the spicy tuna roll is one of the best in London in my opinion!

Also worth trying are the ice creams - green tea, red bean and chestnut are all yummy

“Best sushi with food that will put a smile on your face”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I love to come to Cafe Japan whenever I am around this area... the food is superb - fresh, tasty and with sophisticated flavours that are subtle but pleasing to the soul... the best that this place can offer is the sushi and sashimi. I loved the bento too but I think the A La Cart menu and the dishes are the best to offer at this place.

Best to reserve a table or turn up really early to secure the seat. :)

“Excellent Fresh Sushi, Prepared Right in Front of you”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Popped in for a take away lunch. Prepared right in front of me and was EXCELLENT! Delicious, fresh, service was friendly. Yes, it was pricey compared to a packet sushi lunch but it is a very different market/situation.

Restaurant looked nice and can't wait to try and get back there for a full meal.
