This restaurant is a little further out in Putney on the upper Richmond Road, it serves food from all over Asia. The portion sizes are very good and the prices are even better... won't get a better chicken katsu curry then you will at this place believe me. Tasty sushi platters. Service is not the most amazing, staff won't frequent... More

I've been ordering your miso ramen soup for years now and every few months I come back the portion is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller. This time it was less than half the bowl... Although very tasty it is not good value for money anymore.

Lovely and better alternative to some of the other pseudo-Asian chains. Tasty and flavourful, with helpful staff.

We went on a Saturday evening, a pre movie meal. We went for starters and a main course. The starters came up hot and tasty - spicy chicken wings, spring roles and king prawns all delicious and piping hot. We then had a variety of main courses chicken and black bean sauce, teriyaki chicken and teriyaki salmon- beautifully presented and... More

I wish this chain was not just in London , it's ramen was amazing! The sushi salmon board so fresh. Would defiantly go back and try more of their dishes.

Visited early evening for a light meal (for three) before going to a theatre production. Has been over a year since our last visit but the quality of food and service has been maintained. Soft shell crab and tempura prawns were perfect, as were gyoza with octopus (!), seared tuna with delicious garlic based coating and pumpkin croquettes. Staff are... More

I had my doubts as I have not been to a decent Asian restaurant for a very long time. But to my dismay, I was pleasantly surprised. The starters of the sticky chicken sticks were very nice, the chicken dumplings were mediocre. The katsu curry was delicious! The staff were very friendly and the food came out super quick! Will...

We've gone to Hare and Tortoise a couple times for dinner and have enjoyed both meals there. The sushi is good, but definitely adds up and there are better deals to get elsewhere. Service is friendly and food arrives very quickly. Good for a week night out, but nothing particularly special or authentic about the experience.

Thank Jessica S
