‏”Fantastic food and service. The beef ramen is great and would highly recommend to people to try. Great experience overall.”

TonyJackyChan via TripAdvisor

“This place is consistently good and reasonably priced. They have small table downstairs and an area where you eat in a traditional way by sitting on the floor.

Each bowl was generously filled. My sushi was really fresh and had a nice colourful selection. Worth trying.”

MarinaFerrerLuz Via Trip Advisor

“I especially liked the miso soup and sushi. Reasonably priced and very good food. Bento boxes are very good as well. Upstairs is probably better if you are in a hurry and just want to grab a quick bite.”

Great food in a traditional setting with sunken seating. Not cheap but to be fair where is in the city of London these days? My only criticism would be the mix of Adele and rock music blaring out.

Jonathan S via TripAdvisor

Beautiful food, excellent service and a really enjoyable lunch. It somehow felt almost liberating and extra comfortable to dine without shoes on.

ClintBaptiste via TripAdvisor

Upstairs is good for lunch on-the-go, downstairs is ideal for a celebration lunch. The bento box is superb as is the black cod with teriyaki sauce. Not crazy prices given the outstanding quality of the food. Will definitely be back.
