    A must visit Japanese market in London, close to Picadilly Circus. A great selection of products for the Japanese food fans with many authentic local brands not seen in your typical supermarket.

    Amazing sushi, saké, ramen, tempura, green tea.. the list goes on. Definitely recommend grabbing some of the takeaway food. Some items can be a tad expensive so watch out (£14 for green tea Kit Kats!)

    The best Japanese market in London. Reasonably priced authentic Japanese food and supplies. Sashimi is very fresh. They now also do varied brown rice poké bowls.

    I just come here to buy Calpico, magazines and Melon pan, but there's more to the place. The food looks delicious. Plenty great groceries if you want to try your hand at home.

    Come here for some Japanese fast food. There are seats for you to enjoy in the store. Otherwise, you can come here for a shopping of Japanese products, from miso to Pocky cookies.

    Their sushi takeaway is always my favourite. Very fresh. For dessert, go for custard dorayaki, black sesame pudding or green tea puff!

    Great place for "a bit out of the ordinary" shopping. Also consider grabbing lunch here. It's Japanese food at a level the big chains can only dream off.

    Come early and avoid the crowd. Lunch is great value for London. If you go for the Katsu Curry, ask them to heat it up longer as the microwave isn't that powerful.

    dream come true. good selection tea, teaware, fresh and frozen Japanese specialty foods, snacks, sweets, dried stuff, plus a lunch kitchen.

    Love the fresh sashimi here. If you shop at the end of the day, sometimes they do sashimi offcuts for very cheap. Bargain!

    Free miso soup when you spend 5pounds on take-away, perfect for lunch. Don't be scared by the massive queue at noon, it goes really fast and definitely worth it!

    Convenient location & good selection of Japanese snacks and groceries. It is a little too crowded as they provide tables for people eating in store.

    Lots of Japanese products, including fresh and eat in. However always too busy, and the new location feels very cramped

    Very crowded (especially during lunch time) but has just about everything you could want in a Japanese market. Great variety of takeout, both hot & cold. Groceries can get a bit pricey.
