Went into this small, cramped looking Japanese restaurant off King Street expecting knock-off Japanese meals for a hefty price. What I got was the complete opposite-the food was all priced very decently for Hammersmith and the size of the servings, the place was completely packed and the food itself just blew me away. To find this place amongst the commercialised high street of Hammersmith was a gem!

I had the pork tonkatsu bento box meal, which comes with miso soup, which was warm and filling. The bento box size was great-they give a proper full pork cutlet, as well as rice, these double fried tofu in a slightly sweet sauce, two pieces of sushi and a salad. They also have lots of different authentic Japanese drinks which I would definitely recommend trying as you are unlikely to find them anywhere else!

Only point that isn't really a negative is that the menu size is massive. Trying to find what you want to order can really take some time, so make sure you keep that in mind if you visit! They are always adding new seasonal and special editions which is great as well.

This is an amazing Japenese resturant chain and the King street branch is simply the best.
Amazing host great manager Natsuko run the place like clock! Couldnt be happier to find this place and we are extremely profesional people !
Very busy Friday and weekends!

#FROZEN food though!!! Nothing Fresh!
Shame all ingredients/foods are frozen , dont expect anything fresh as its chain all frozen then cooked in kitchen!

For that reason scores 4!

My friend lives in Hammersmith and suggested to have dinner at this place. The food is authentic and we even saw some Japanese there. We love the food, especially the mussels, the sushi and Katsudon Japanese Pork Cutlet and egg. The soup of the mussels was so tasty. The portion is big, but price not expensive. As the restaurant is always very busy, it’s a bit noisy but acceptable and guests have to be patient about service. Booking in advance is also recommended. Though very busy, the staff were still friendly and tried to serve well as far as they could.

At least they still serve okay food for the price. However, do not expect any customer service in this branch! I am regular for Old compton branch as it is next to my work. They are friendly and efficient even if they are much busier than this place. If this restaurant chain has head office, they need to send training manager to teach them basic service skill.
