Some of “the best (reasonably affordable) sushi in London” can be found at these supermarket/cafés operated by a Japanese food importer. But it’s all about the “fresh and addictive” plates – “service is a bit rough and ready when they’re busy” and the ambience “lacks soul”.

Though centrally made, the sushi is some of “the best and best-priced in London” (“not surprising as they supply many of the top restos”) at this small collection of cafés, run by a Japanese food importer. “Don’t expect any ambience to write home about” – decor is “very basic” – while service is “fine without being personable”. Branches in N12 and W3 closed this year, which also saw the group rebrand from plain ‘Atari-Ya’.

“Always packed and rightly so” was the worst report this year on this group of Japanese caffs, run by a food import business, where the dishes (“mostly excellent sushi”) can be “divine”. The decor, though, is “very simple” and the resulting atmosphere “pretty rubbish”.

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).
