“Great sushi and sashimi”, “at reasonable prices”, are the draw at this “authentic” Japanese spot near the Barbican. “Flawless food without the pretentiousness of some high-end Japanese” – no wonder it’s “always packed”./_ EC1Y 8JL; www.phamsushi.com; @phamsushi; 10 pm; closed Sat L, closed Sun.
“Excellent value and authenticity” make this Japanese duo near the Barbican and Silicon Roundabout well worth knowing about. “It’s not about the ambience, but the sushi and fresh sashimi remain really good quality.”
Don’t go for the ambience (it’s “cramped and noisy”), but some of “the best-value Japanese in London” is found at this simple, “off-the-beaten-track” Barbican fixture – “consistently excellent sushi (of which crunchy tuna and flying dragon are highlights)”, all “at a fraction of West End prices”.
