Harden's survey result
“Good, simple Japanese food” has drawn a steady crowd to this offbeat, two-storey outfit for 35 years; its trump card is “location, location and location” – a little alleyway between Regent Street and Piccadilly. Cooking standards have “varied over the years”, but most reporters still approve the overall experience and “sensible prices for Mayfair”.
On a quiet alleyway near Piccadilly Circus, this typically low-key (but “welcoming”) Japanese, has been an insider’s secret for more than two decades, with a simple counter downstairs and table service up. Practically all diners agree it’s on good form again now, “after many years of changing chefs and menus”.
Hiding in a side alley, this “favourite Japanese” is an “oasis of calm of the highest quality in Piccadilly”. “The welcome is always amazing” (“I feel like a treasured friend”), and the food (which has had its ups and downs over the years) “very fresh and simple” but “artfully produced”. There’s quite a contrast in style between the ground floor counter and small upstairs space.
“Tucked away in an alley off Piccadilly”, this quirky café-style venue is “as near as you can get to genuine Japanese food” in London. Opinions differ on whether it is nicer downstairs or in the small upstairs area, but “sitting at the counter is a great option for the solo diner”.
Yoshino Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Small Japanese restaurant tucked away down a narrow alley. Worth seeking out for simple but well prepared Japanese fare. Lunch pricing attractive by West End standards."
"Intimate friendly Japanese café restaurant tucked away down a narrow lane. Good value (for central London!) £20 lunch delicious apart from dry, overcooked chicken teriyaki. Worth giving another go though!"
