A small Japanese bar located in the area where there are quite a few restaurants on Exmounth Market. An exceptional place due to the highly motivated and professional staff. Ask for excellent Japanese jasmine tea.

Lovely cafe for very affordable Japanese meal. Attentive staff. Delicious ginger roll, octopus balls, green tea ice cream. Curry not the best but plenty of other choices.

Necco has been on my radar for some time and as a fan of Japanese food and all things on the kawaii side, I knew I had to visit. Their location is a little out the way from where I tend to stay in London,...More

Worst Katsu curry iv ever had. It was tasteless with over cooked rice. The chicken in the meal was disgusting. I tasted like a tough piece of chicken leg where the bread crumbs were falling off so I could see the colour of the chicken....More

Popped in for lunch. Nice cosy cafe, food was good but the portions were small and price is quite high. The cakes and tea selection was good.

It's a rainy summer's day in Clerkenwell and a yearning for a spicy katsu curry with brown rice drew me to Necco. Absolutely divine Katsu curry - spicy and heart warming. My colleague had a bento box stuffed full of goodies - tempura, sushi, rice...More

Necco was so disappointing. I was craving a decent bento but the salmon teriyaki was pathetic. A slither of salmon, ten times as much rice and I didn’t touch the supposed “salad” (a shred of dirty lettuce) and “side dish” (some tiny old pieces of...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
