It is like being back in Japan! This tiny restaurant has takes you into another world. The food is so tasty and beautifully presented. It is our favourite Hampstead haunt! Service is very attentive.

“Sushi the way it should be”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and the food is always delicious. The rolls and sushi is better than all but London's top Japanese restaurants, and the experience feels authentic. It is worth the price!

“Beware raw chicken skewer .”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

I've always found this place , crowded, expensive but good quality - I have been coming here off and on for over 20 year. Last nights experience makes think I won't be back. After soggy edamame, good sushi and so-so gyoza, we ordered a selection of skewers - one of the chicken skewers was so undercooked it was oozing blood. And the staffs handling of this? No good will gesture of a drink. They didn't even remove the cost of the item from the bill - only brought another without even asking ! Needless to say this went untouched ... Terrible terrible service ...

“Little Japanese Jewel”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Hidden away on Heath Street in Hampstead, London, you would never find it if you didnt know where to look. No flashing neon here - just a tiny sign - in Japanese. Small too is the actual eating space. But crammed in around an open, bustling kitchen is part of the homey charm. The real pleasure arrives on a plate: oudon noodles straight from downtown Tokyo, teriyake prawns like no other, black cod seared to perfection, and black seaweed to die for. No wonder you have to book well in advance and be willing to take a table at set times. Not cheap, mind you, but well worth it for an unusual night out.

“My favourite Jap Resto in London”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

It didn't take long for me to become a regular to this place. You MUST book though, and not on the day! They turn so many away at the door. Really special food really special place. Not cheap but well worth it!
