Came here Saturday night with 3 female friends haven't been here for at least 6 years. It's small very busy serving most Japanese dishes, the yakatori (chicken on skewer with spring onion and sweet sauce) was good with big sized pieces. This place had a lot of staff running around and preparing things like the sushi. Although small u never... More

I was staying with some friends in London and they decided to bring me here for dinner. I hadn’t previously had much experience with Japanese food so was keen to try a variety of dishes which is exactly what we did. To note the restaurant is very busy in the evenings, and it is advisable to book ahead, which is... More

In many ways this is a really hard review to write because whilst the (front of house) service is often incredibly poor, we love the food and buzz of the place. We eat here regularly, despite its flaws, because the katsu lunch special is incredible, as is the waka kyu salad. The chicken yakitori is also very good. Back again... More

We went on a Friday night. Booked in advance but could only get a place at the counter (you need to book early for a table!). However, still a very good experience. Tiny and cosy as a result but all part of the ambience and while at the counter you are close enough to hear and be heard it still... More

We went here because of the review and also because we want to enjoy "order as you go" type restaurant. But it was a disappointing experience due mainly to the service. We were seated downstair, it has an odd smell so I recommended that if you are going to try this place, book upstair which looks much better. There was... More

Small Japanese, we were lucky to get a table upstairs without a reservation. Pretty full which would explain the slightly longer time for food. Unfailingly polite service and super food. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

4 of us ate there, French, Italian, Filippino and Japanese. We drank and ate many different items in this very warm and cosy place. Very good service. Yakitoris are amazingly tasty as need to be in Japan, can't say same for many other places in london. Maguro natto, yakitori sets, hiya yakko, wagyu Australian beef steak, miso soups, yasai tempuras,... More
