Imagine Nobu, Roka or any of the high end Japanese places in London... Tokyo Diner is at the complete opposite in terms of glamour but outranks them all for value, portions and authenticity. Great value dishes, especially the lunch sets. Sushi, katsu, udon all very good. Relaxed and friendly staff. Will definitely be back!

I visited the restaurant many times and I've enjoyed at each time. The atmosphere is nice the service excellent and very attentive, the kitchen is quick enough to cook the food, even when its busy. It totally worth a visit and the prices are reasonable, I've always left the restaurant with a full belly! I totally recommend that restaurant if... More

Have been here a few times for a quick, chilled dinner usually before a film at the Prince Charles which is very near by. The food is great, reasonably priced, tasty and a good variety. Suitable for vegetarians and has some vegan options too.

Tokyo Diner is by far my favourite Japanese restaurant. I've visited this place many many times and each time I love it even more! the menu is funny as it is highly detailed and gives little descriptions about the way Japanese people eat etc and the culture & origins of the food. The food itself has always been delicious and... More

I visited the Tokyo Diner for lunch in January 2017. The place is nice and authentic. We felt like home as we know such places from Tokyo where we lived for some years. Food is perfect and prices reasonable. Would return anytime.

Average menu, average food, average service, average deco. If you are in the area, need food and don't want to wait for a table, then it's a good option.

My partner adores Japanese food and we are lucky to have the excellent Kyoto in Ramsgate I'm not a big fan I admit and ordered a salmon bento box , which at £19.99 was extortionate for two small tails of salmon in a cloying teriyaki sauce, unmentionable pickles, rice and thick cut raw salmon. It was not good My partner... More

The curry udon dish is really awesome, perfect for a cold winter day. The other mains we tried were all very nice as well, but I was a bit disappointed by the small number of starters, most of which not really appetising. Those we tried varied from ok (dead cold aubergines, which would have been better if not served right... More

I've been going to Tokyo Diner roughly once a month for 9 years now and the quality of service and food never disappointed. It's a solid, no-nonsense place. Although it's in the middle of riddiculously busy China town, you can always find space there. All staff speak japanese and roughly 1/2 of clients are from Japan. I think I sampled... More

Nothing super fancy - basic Japanese food in simple setting. Always busy but friendly staff doesn't make you feel rushed. Decent selection of food that's prepared quickly. Good value for the money in that area.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
