“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.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
