My friends and family know me to be a sushi junkie - I had sushi in every corner of Europe and Brazil (where it is fairly good) and I cannot remember having a birthday without sushi. My sister took me to Asakusa to celebrate my 25th birthday yesterday and even though I have a 20 years' love story with sushi,... More

Simply presented dishes of high quality. Top notch juicy thick slices of sashimi. Run by Japanese people, with lots of Japanese clientele.

Asakusa truly is a little gem: a real Japanese restaurant run by real Japanese. The restaurant is rather small. When we came by on a Friday evening the restaurant was fully booked, but we were lucky enough to find two seats at the counter. The waiter said it would take some time for our food to be ready, since it... More

Asakusa is one of the best Japanese Restaurant in London in terms of quality! VERY fresh sashimi , a great variety of dishes , nice sake etiquettes and limited but good wines! The atmosphere is not quiet basic but it reminds you on an old authentic Japanese Place. (Try to be seated upstairs or at the bar area) The restaurant... More

I've lived in Camden for 8 years and never heard about this place until today, I've walked past it many times but discounted it / never paid attention due to its location but boy was I wrong. The food is amazing, the price is reasonable and the staff are warm and welcoming. A hidden gem, will definitely be going back.

Authentic Japanese restaurant. Great fresh food, especially the sushi and great, friendly service too. Plenty of options for all (even non-fish eaters). Will definitely go back again!
