Harden's survey result
Kaz Tateishi’s “conscientious and consistent” (and therefore very Japanese) sushi shop with eat-in seats is tucked away in Islington’s cute Camden Passage. A meal here (or taken away in a box) “always feels like money well spent”. There is now a second outlet in Shoreditch.
“Tiny and friendly sushi cafe”, tucked away in the heart of Islington, where “the freshest fish are expertly prepared” (it’s “run by a local fish supplier”). “All the usual options are present on the menu, but there are also some interesting daily specials”. Take-away only during social-distancing times, but eat in is likely to return. There is also a spin-off in Shoreditch.
For 32 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).
