* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Vaguely Tyrolean, beamed decor is nobody’s idea of a Japanese restaurant at this slightly odd venture, near Mornington Crescent tube. No complaints about the outstanding value sushi and other fare though: “good and varied as ever, with many choices for Japanese drinks too, including sake”.

“Top-notch sashimi, tempura and sushi at reasonable prices” inspire the highest praise for this offbeat operation near Mornington Crescent, whose “mock-Tudor-cum-Tyrolean decor is bizarre but doesn’t detract from the authentic Japanese cooking”. “I’m trying, and failing miserably, to keep it a secret from my friends!”.

“Incongruously, a really good Japanese set in a rather shabby faux-Tudor setting” – this surprising outfit near Mornington Crescent impresses with its “exceptional prices for the quality”.

For 30 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).
