This tranquil veteran hidden away in an alleyway just off Piccadilly Circus has provided one of London’s “best Japanese experiences” for nearly 40 years. It’s “run by the nicest people”“the welcome from Lisa is always amazing” – and if you sit downstairs near the counter, she’ll choose a wonderful meal for you from the sushi, sashimi and cooked dishes on offer. Upstairs, there’s waitress service at tables.

“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”.

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).
