I lived in Japan for four years and with my Japanese wife for 40 years, so know a bit about Japanese food. (And I enjoy good food in general!)
I completely agree with all the positive things said by "Neil" in his review.
The standard and variety of sushi and sashimi here are really excellent, and the dishes from the kitchen are always reliably good. There is a wide range of delicious cold or warm starters and side dishes, sometimes including cold (cooked) monk fish liver in a ponzu sauce which is fantastic!
It's easy to see why Japanese people (and others, of course) will travel across London to eat here, and the place is pretty much always packed. Mr. and Mrs. Shimizu work flat-out to ensure that the customers always leave satisfied. It's not the cheapest high-quality Japanese restaurant in town, but not the most expensive either, and you'll have a hard job finding better value for money at this level of authenticity.
