We are sorry to learn about your recent visit to shijo has been a disappointing one. Let alone an alleged food poisoning. We just wish to assure all you and all our customers that we do have a HACCP policy in place and...More
Shijo is one of mine and my boyfriends favourite places to go, after we found out about it well over a year ago it became a weekly date!!! The food is always better than amazing and we always get so giddy when we go, highly...More
I come here all the time for lunch as they have the nicest katsu chicken curry, you get a really good size portion too and the price is fantastic! Would recommend everyone to try and you will not be disappointed
Shijo is the perfect place for a filling and cheap lunch, especially if you’re a student! For £5.50 you can get a huge bowl of Katsu curry with rice/noodles and it’s soooo delicious. The selection of food is great considering how small it is and...More

I was greeted very rudely when I walked in and on top of that the ‘grilled teriyaki chicken’ was absolutely awful. Grey in colour... I couldn’t eat it. I’d never go back and I never usually post a bad review. Waste of money.More

Thanks for your time reviewing shijo. I am quite surprised by your judgement and also, quite relieved as its not pink or undercooked. As we marinate our chicken in teriyaki sauce, hence the slightly tanned colour.
Please do come in, we are happy...More
Can never go wrong with some sushi for lunch! 🍣
Especially when it’s Shijo’s amazingly tasty crispy chicken sushi rolls.
This is my go to meal every time I come to this place (usually the one just off from Ellison Place) & I highly recommend...More
