    Huge portions for incredibly cheap prices. The curries etc are even big enough to share between two! The sushi's also delicious and again so cheap. Highly recommend for a quick bite.

    Cheap and huge portion! Ordered the pork katsu, the rice was superb! Love the service here. Remember customers have to pay in cash.

    Food is great, prices are a bargain for central London! Queues are likely: be patient, it's worth the wait! Don't forget to bring cash: credit cards not accepted!

    It's not a very cosy place as it's not meant for you to sit there and savour your meal for ages. But the food is so delicious you're going to inhale it anyway;)

    Don't expect to be here long. This isn't the type of place u sit back and relax. They'll rush u out of here when there is a line. Food is good though. Try the tonkatsu rice. Nice large portion.

    Be prepared to queue at lunch & dinner for up to 30 mins outside, service and decor leave a lot to the imagination BUT most authentic & best value Japanese in central London - 100% worth it.

    It's a little on the small side and it's not furnished well but the food is good, cheap and you get generous portions. This place is always quite busy and service can be slow but it's worth it. :D

    Prices are cheap with most dishes costing around £6 and the portion is huge too. I would recommend the Chicken Hamburger Curry! The meat is tender and moist~ Makes you crave for more.

    Wonderfully cheap Japanese soul food. Good quality which makes it fantastic value. Never had to wait too long for a table, but probably wouldn't risk going in with a large group.

    A Japanese restaurant in the heart of Chinatown. It's very popular, which causes crowding (waiting in queue for 30mins crowding). It's really small including tables for two but it's nice and cheap!

    Any of the katsu curry udon bowls are good. I got the pork version. They're a great deal at £6.50 each.

    Prices are ridiculously low for the location, amount and quality of the food. It gets quite packed and the tables are all cramped in, so you'll have to stand up to let other people get in/out.

    Cheap and cheerful, the servings are huge. Great if you value quantity over quality and there's a huge variety of dishes on the menu. Service not too bad for an Asian restaurant in Chinatown.

    As fresh as it gets; no wonder with so many customers. Great value for money too. And the service is quick, although rather too quick at busy times.

    Want to get the staff interested? Try some Japanese. Order a glass of wine - "グラスワインを一つください。" [Gurasu wain o hitotsu kudasai.] or try ordering 2 beers - "ビールを二つください。" [Bīru o futatsu kudasai.]
