Wow, you can find awesome products, hot food (ramen, chicken skewers marinated in the most amazing sauce, fish..), sweets and drinks that you have never seen or tasted before! Also the range of bowls and chopsticks that you can buy is unbelievable!

Great shop with kind and friendly staff makes your shopping experience in the Japan Centre unforgettable!

I highly recommend this shop that has everything you need to buy and enjoy eating delicious food.

Hello, many of our Japanese expiration dates are displayed in the opposite way to that of British expiration dates. We would appreciate if you could please amend your review. Many thanks.

I love coming to the Japan Centre, it has so many things in relation to Japan that I can't get back at home.
I was however sent here to get melon bread for my sister, and I knew that they had moved, I didn't realise how big the place was going to be though!
It's mainly downstairs now, though i think there is a takeout place upstairs if you are just wanting to grab something and go. It's bright and airy, it's easy to get around and it's simple to find things too.
I would say that things have become more expensive than they were before, I don't recall spending about £4 for melon bread last year when I was here, however I understand that it's in a better location for people to find them now, so the rent would probably be more too.

As a lover of all things Japanese I was really excited to go to the Japan Centre, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting! The shop aspect of it is actually quite small, we have some Asian supermarkets in Brighton which are around the same size. Obviously this isn't just your average Asian supermarket, but I must admit I was a bit disappointed with that aspect of it.

Obviously I arrived hungry so also had to order food. The tempura don I had was so flipping delicious I've been trying to find somewhere local that replicates the yum factor and haven't been successful so far! I will return!
