Great food. Katsu, teriyaki and sushi were all delicious. Dropped in for a week-day lunch and were seated promptly. Would definitely dine again on next visit to London!

Amazing experience to dine here. Wonderful staff, very attentive and thoughtful. The food was sensational, delicious and super fresh. The menu is not expansive like so many places in London, it’s just the right number of options to choose from. Loved the salmon teriyaki and...the spicy tuna cucumber rolls. 5 stars for food, service, ambience. Can’t wait to dine here again.More

Top notch food, delicious Bento boxes, katsu, sashimi and veggie options. Great, generous customer service that made up for a mix-up with the order. We will be back.

Had lunch here- please book as super busy. Sat next to staff counter, some view of the kitchen. Ordered two express bento box- one chicken Katsu and the other pork Katsu-was super full after. The Katsu was good- Chicken better than pork as pork had...bits of fat in it.Deep fried so heavy. The chicken karage was good but heavy as deep fried. Pumpkin croquette was good but sweat and could have been a desert but was put with salad which didn’t work. Salad was nice as had seaweed and edamame beans. The sushi was good as was the miso. All in all a good meal , just too unbalanced with the multiple deep fried items. Would suggest ordering one bento and sharing and then having a dish of something else which isn’t deep fried like sushi roll. Service was ok -charged 7.5%: Amazing for london.More

I had dinner here — and overall food quality is good, but the portion size is too small with too few snacks. Because I’m fat.

Food was fresh and well presented however service was questionable and waiting staff did not leave a good impression. The blonde Asian waitress could benefit from some training on how to interact with customers and maybe smile to prevent there being an air of awkwardness....Took ten minutes for our order to be taken despite the restaurant not being overly busy. Other guests waiting for tables stood to close to our table whilst we were eating which created some anxiety given the current situation with COVID. Be warned you will be reminded that you have 15 minutes remaining at your table and then presented the bill whilst the waiter hovers with the card machine.More

Authentic Japanese serving up delicious food with great service and ambience. Our family of 5 loved everything about Tanakatsu. We had the classic Katsu curry, Katsu set, and Katsu Don. If you like dessert we recommend the chocolate Mochi. We’ll be back soon, this time...with friends.More

Amazing no fuss Japanese food. We had the katsu curry and katsu/salmon teriyaki rice, they were both amazing. Katsu was fried perfectly, the pork was still juicy. The highlight was the salad dressing for the cabbage, it was fresh tasting and really nice. Service was...excellent. We will definitely come back again when we're in London. P.S. The place was very busy, we turned up without a booking and had to come back another day. Best reserve your table not to be disappointed.More
