Crouch End's best sushi restaurant - Ohba Leaf - has closed. Wow is a good alternative. I've had the sushi twice here and it's fresh and well presented, and the selection is pretty good. Service was also good. Much improved from previous visits.

We both chose the WOW Bento Box which we thought was a good way to sample a range of tastes and textures. From high to low: the sashimi was fresh and beautifully presented, the sticky rice was acceptable, the tempura prawns were fine but I couldn't see the point of the extra vegetables and the teriyaki chicken was overcooked and...
