I have to be honest and confess that Asakusa doesn't look like the most enticing restaurant to visit if one were to walk past it – green signboard is kind of hideous and half the lights were down. However, the food quality and service one can expect to find at Asakusa parallel those in Japan. My mate and I visited... More

My friend recommend this place and it did not disappoint. The food is reasonably priced yet had its own twist and were prepared with love. I recommend their tamago yaki with eel and also their sushi and sashimi. Had to wait for awhile for the sushi as they have only one sushi chef that night. But it's well worth the... More

Asakusa is one of my favourite restaurants in London. I've been and visited several regions of Japan and I can vouch for the fact that the food at Asakusa is as authentic as it gets, with the additional benefit of honest prices. It is a very popular restaurant so there are a lot of people throughout the week so when... More

We came here for our anniversary, food was great. Would definitely recommend the agedashi nasu, its sooo good! My only problem was, we booked a table (it's notoriously hard to get a table as it's always so busy) and it took us a long time to be seated. When we did we were seated downstairs and was invited by the... More

Family-owned Japanese food. This place actually made me fall in love with Japanese food again. Almost everything on their menu is good. Don't miss the soft crab shell and the eel. You must book in advance as it gets really crowded.

Fantastic food and great service. Much larger portions than we expected, really good value. The squid was excellent and superb tempura.

Make sure you make a reservation in advance for this place! We went on a Wednesday night and it was packed. The only reason we got a table is because there was a no show (luckily!) The service was great. Never had to wait for or try to get someone's attention, despite the restaurant being completely full. The staff were... More

My friends and family know me to be a sushi junkie - I had sushi in every corner of Europe and Brazil (where it is fairly good) and I cannot remember having a birthday without sushi. My sister took me to Asakusa to celebrate my 25th birthday yesterday and even though I have a 20 years' love story with sushi,... More

Simply presented dishes of high quality. Top notch juicy thick slices of sashimi. Run by Japanese people, with lots of Japanese clientele.
