This used to be one of the best Katsu Curries in the city but recently the Chicken Katsu Curry to take away has been luke warm at best... I would recommend Japanese Canteen over this, at least they get the food out the kitchen hot!

Great food and good service. Had their chirasha today and was amazing. Highly recommended if you are in the city of London and are looking for authentic Japanese food.

Great food in a traditional setting with sunken seating. Not cheap but to be fair where is in the city of London these days? My only criticism would be the mix of Adele and rock music blaring out.

We had dinner on Friday night after work at Kurumaya. We have dined many times there over last few years. I hope my experience was an isolated incident, otherwise they must have changed the chef. Rice used for making sushi was not authentic Japanese sushi...More

I especially liked the miso soup and sushi. Reasonably priced and very good food. Bento boxes are very good as well. Upstairs is probably better if you are in a hurry and just want to grab a quick bite.
