An Oxford institution in its 26th year, Meiko & Peter Galpin’s “tiny restaurant”, “close to the historic Holywell Music Room”, serves “top-quality authentic Japanese home cooking”, including “large bowls of tasty ramen soup and daily specials”, with “one sushi evening a week” (much in demand, on Thursdays). Top Tip – “it’s cramped”, very popular, and there’s “no advance booking” – so it pays to arrive very early.

For 33 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).
