Summary

“Fab for a quick and dirty sushi fix”, this Soho and South Kensington duo offer “good value Japanese food”. “Everything passes by on a conveyor in front of you”, which makes them “non-intimidating for those not familiar with sushi and its variations”.

Summary

“My go-to for cheap, reliable Japanese food” – these “unchanging” (read dated and drab) conveyor-belt sushi dives (Kulu Kulu means ‘sushi-go-round’) “feel authentic” and “won’t break the bank”.

Summary

“The prices barely seem to have changed in the last 17 years” (similarly the drab decor) at these “grab-a-dish-from-the-belt” cafés, still popular “for a cheap, quick, sushi fix”. “The key to an enjoyable meal is to go when it’s busy when dishes are at their freshest and hottest”.

Summary

“Don’t go if you’re a sushi aficionado”, but “for a quick fix” these “old-timer” conveyor-cafés “tick every box for easy grub”.
