We picked Mushu as a place for a fairly early dinner (5.30pm) before a visit to the New Diorama Theatre. The modus operandi of the restaurant is that of a japanese tapas bar - diners choose a selection of smallish shareable dishes.
We did not have any sushi as it was quite a cold day, and instead concentrated on hot dishes. One of our favourite japanese recipes is nasu dengaku (aubergine) and we centred our choices around this.
All of the food was well presented, tasty and reasonable in portioning. Particularly good were the potsticker pork and cabbage dumplings, the aforementioned nasu dengaku, and the beef teriyaki. We had seven dishes, some rice, and kimchi between us, and with two flasks of sake, tea and miso soup, the bill came to £84 including 10% service, which seems fair enough.
The service was attentive but not cloying.
I quite liked the simple decor.
I would return again if eating in the Warren Street area.
