“Some of the best Japanese food in London, at half the price you’d spend in Zone One”, is found at this tiny, “surprisingly calming” outfit, in a parade of shops “on a busy road”, near South Wimbledon tube station. “Superb fresh sushi” is prepared on site by chef-proprietor Taka, formerly of Nobu, with service by his “charming wife”, Yuko. “I’ve eaten sushi three to four times in Japan – and this is better!”. Booking recommended.

“An unbelievably good neighbourhood find!”“some of the best Japanese food ever!” and wonderfully “caring service” can be discovered “in a tiny room at this unlikely location – a deeply suburban parade near South Wimbledon tube station. The “sublime” and “mouth-watering” cuisine – “Japanese with a Mediterranean twist” – is freshly prepared by chef-proprietor Taka, formerly of Nobu.

“I don’t really want to tell people about it!” – This “tiny” yearling from an ex-Nobu chef in a parade near South WImbledon station is “not the easiest to get to if you don’t live in SW19”, and has “no decor” to speak of, but the food is “just heavenly”: “amazing, contemporary Japanese cuisine”, “as good as anything in the West End”.

“Unbelievable Japanese-European fusion food” including stellar sushi (from a “lovely ex-Nobu chef” and his wife) is a “stunning” find at this pleasant, but totally unremarkable looking, new shop-conversion in a parade near South Wimbledon tube.

"We went to Japan in May and ate sushi several times but not as well as here. Mrs. Takahashi is a delightful hostess. A regular treat for us."
