    It really takes too much effort, to make an unpleasant meal like this. Every thing is wrong with this restaurant. 😐

    I went for the chicken bento box. Really nice. The chicken seemed to be a higher quality than most Japanese canteen type places. Much less grissle.

    Great place to grab good. Most mains are about £6-8, ranging from Salmon Teriyaki to Bento boxes. Fast service, quite a lot of seating, student discount (10%) after 2:30.

    Make sure you get the Chicken katsu curry, also if you don't like your rice running out of sauce you can buy extra for an additional £1 - Brilliant!
