The best Japanese I've had in London, also the best Japanese restaurant according to the few Japanese people I know, and probably the best restaurant in London altogether. Everyone mentions the decor as a neutral point or a minus even, but I think it's nice and cozy (I hate cold design-restaurants with bright lights and restaurants that try too hard, with candles, etc.). Anyway, wonderful tastes and the most reasonable prices—you have to be crazy to ask for more. If I have to wait 5 more minutes for a dish (which hasn't happened to me by the way), it's part of having a nice night eating out, so big deal. Downstairs space is not very nice, that's true. Love Asakusa!!!

Thursday, August 26, 2010 - Even fried chicken need recipes, and one was superb. Well seasoned, it had a fragrance, like oyster sauce, or mushrooms, or something full of umami chemicals. Fried to a crunchy puff, whilst the chicken maintains its juicy bounce...The last hurrah was an obligatory plate of nigiri. I ordered salmon, tamago, scallop, unagi and sea bream. A spike of wasabi nestled between fish and rice, I noted the beauty of the filleted salmon, of how it cuddled the dollop of rice it came it. Oh, the fish is good...

Cheese and Biscuits

Cheese and Biscuits - 9/10

Monday, July 12, 2010 - Best of the starters though were these piping hot balls of fried octopus - Takoyaki - served with an amazing okonomiyaki sauce; something I'd never tried before and will henceforth seek out on any future visit to a Japanese restaurant...Hotate sashimi was stunning. Yellowfin tuna, mackerel, salmon and white tuna, it goes without saying that it was all incredibly fresh, but this had something extra - a deep, rich meatiness and heady notes of ocean spray; it was up there with some of the finest fish I've ever eaten.
