We have been to Murasaki for lunch twice in the past month as we are new to the area. On both occasions they did not bother clearing our table after we finished our main courses or offering any desserts or hot drinks. It was not a big deal the first time around but during our last visit I had to... More

Brilliant healthy food for all tastes. It's far more than sushi and tempura. I tend to go for one of the interesting hot mackerel main courses. Wait staff are very entertaining :)

Whether at the small restaurant at Seven Dials or the Take Away venue at the top of Norfolk Road Murasaki has consistently delivered outstanding Japanese food. Of particular note is the crispness of the Tempura batter and freshness of fish which suggests the batter is changed frequently and the highlight is always the Sashimi platters. Very reasonably priced and very... More

Chicken kebab starter was not breast- slightly chewy/ rubbery bits of thigh? For main, chicken Banbu tempura was soaked in sauce which was too vinegary,so soggy not crispy. I had heard good things about the food so was very disappointed. My kids both had chicken katsu - they said it was not nearly as nice as Wagamama's katsu. The whole... More

Poor meal here last night. I've been before over the years but this time it felt lazy and jaded. The tempura was cooked in overly old oil and was deeply uninspiring. The miso soup was casually throw together - I've not had a worse miso soup in a Japanese restaurant ever. And it's not as though it's dirt cheap either.... More

A really lovely meal in Seven Dials . Had selection of sushi, noodle dishes, tofu & daikon salad, other tofu dishes - really lovely. Simple decor but a really lovely meal when visiting Brighton & just round the corner from where we were staying.

Found this little gem and went with a few friends. Tried various different things off of the menu and they were very catering to my celiac friends needs. Delicious food, prompt service and i would highly recommend, although we were lucky just walking in as it was busy, so would probably book

I dined her as a party of 19 for a hen-do in May 2016. We ate fresh delicious food, drank lovely drinks and were served by accommodating staff. What more could you ask for? Thank you.
