In an “unlikely location” on the edge of Greenwich, this “unassuming” outfit serves “incredible” Japanese fusion dishes in “very generous portions” (notable sushi and “perfect tempura, with light batter”). Given its basic interior, the name is surely ironic (‘zaibatsu’ are the vast – and far from unassuming – conglomerates that dominate the Japanese economy, such as Mitsubishi, Mitsui and Nissan).

This “buzzy, family-owned Asian” dishes up “really fresh Japanese fusion food” that’s “cheap and delicious”, including “super-value sushi”. It’s “basic” and “functional”, with “dog-eared menus” and Formica tables, but “service is efficient” and you can BYO.

“Marvellous Japanese food” including “amazing and well-priced sushi” brings a constant buzz to this “deceptively unimpressive-looking restaurant” in Greenwich, with “scruffy Formica-topped tables”. “BYO, no corkage”.

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).
