Food is superb and staff very kind. As it's quite popular in peak times there might be a bit to wait. Nothing a good conversation can't fill.
One of the best traditional Japanese in London. Fresh ingredients and skilful cooking in an unpretentious atmosphere (maybe a tad too much but that’s its charm)
Our absolutely favorite restaurant in London. We were here almost every week for 6 months. Very nice staff and amazing food for an affordable price. Try the rustic cut Wasabi with avocado and the inside-out sushi with eel, and you will be hooked as well! But the aubergine with miso paste or the udon soup are just as great.
Doesn't get more authentic than this place. From food, over staff right down to the music! It's been a while that I went to an Izakaya in Europe and heard Shonan no Late (a Japanese reggae/hip hop band). And in addition you get incredible value for your money. The food is delicious and the real Japanese sakes, beers and highballs was a great. Just bring time and patience as orders do take some time. But it's all part of the experience. Loved every minute I spend here! Thanks Asakusa, I'll be back!
'interesting' j-pop, lots of Japanese paraphernalia, good food and waitresses that have a hard time pronouncing English words. But all makes for a great dinner, highly recommended!
