Summary

“A huge choice of classic Japanese fast food” at “very reasonable prices for central London” make this diner a real “go-to” in Chinatown. The tastes are “authentic – just like in a Tokyo eatery”, although “portions are larger”. There’s a “buzzy atmosphere and cheerful but slightly haphazard service”. Top tip – “bento boxes definitely recommended”.

“Just like the kind of Japanese restaurants you find in Japan” – this “bargain” diner, on the fringe of Chinatown, is “really small, but comfy and welcoming”. “Delicious noodles and tasty sushi keep cost-conscious fans coming, and the no-tips policy also helps keep the bill down.”
