Full disclosure: I have lived in Japan for nearly 30 years, so I have no great expectation about Japanese food in the UK. Even so, this place managed to live down to my expectations. I popped in as I was staying nearby on business and just wanted a donburi and Asahi Superdry before retiring to my hotel. Clearly none of... More

I recognise restaurants need to churn tables though our meal here was a farce. We have ate at a number of a Japanese restaurants across London and whilst the food is okay at the price point everything else is like a canteen in a fast food shop. We ordered appetisers then sushi then a main and everything came at once.... More

Just around the corner and very convenient to the British Library and St Pancras. Portions were well sized, freshly made absolutely delightful and served quickly and efficiently. Prices were not too bad either. Japanese is never cheap but it is fresh and hand made to order. Lots of office workers from the locality use this restaurant regularly. There is no... More

Found this place in the app, so thought give a go. The food is really nice, fresh and reasonable priced when you consider its location. Highly recommend the crunchy salmon maki, the grilled aubergine, soft shell crab! Service are friendly and quick. Don't miss the hidden gem if you are around Euston!

I visited with my girlfriend on a saturday night. The place is easy to find, close to the british library. The restaurant looks nice and the staff was really nice and friendly. There were no more than 10 tables and it was almost full. We did not wait a lot for our sushi. The sushi tasted amazing, one of the... More

My flatmate recommended this restaurant to me so I decided to give it a try. Thankfully the place wasn't full even though I arrived during peak dinner hour (7ishpm). Had Stir Fry Seafood Soba for my main and two rolls to share with my cousin (Spicy Tuna Roll & Prawn Tempura Roll). I must say that while the soba noodles... More

I visited with my girlfriend on Valentine's and had an amazing time. Firstly, the location was very easily accessible no more than 10 minutes from St. Pancras station. The outside decor is simple and the theme continues within. That is not to say it is unappealing it has a very friendly and homely feel within. I think roughly 10 or... More
