My partner is Japanese and we've eaten at numerous Japanese restaurants throughout London. Most, especially those with exclamation marks in their name, are overpriced, far from fresh and just not authentic. Kiraku on the other hand is superb value, fresh food that mixes the very best of traditional Japanese with some modern innovative dishes. You can tell from the drinks menu including a great range of Sake and Shochu (served several different ways) to the ingredients such as natto and lotus root in some of the dishes, that thought has gone into the menu and this is no mass-marketed high street chain. The range of dishes caters to everyone from the numerous Japanese clientele, to those who are looking for dishes popular in the UK - although I urge you to experiment!

Kiraku is great value, excellent food, and for a refreshing change, it's unique - highly recommended!
