“Service with a smile”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

There are 3 sushi places near here and they all seem to be really busy at lunch time. What I like about Abokado is the selection of sushi and the combinations. It's a shame they don't have sashimi with an edamame salad instead of a leaf salad but that's just me being fussy. The shop staff are very friendly and happy. There is a great selection of healthy rolls, soups, salads and you're told exactly what's in them.

The good thing is you get your soy sauce and wasabi in the packet so that's not extra. For take away sushi that's prepacked it tastes pretty darn good

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

What a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this fast-yet-healthy food emporium in the heart of legal London. There are many of these throughout London; the one I visited was the High Holborn shop, near Gray’s Inn.

Never having been to one of these shops before, I walked up to the counter to order (the menu and prices are on the wall). The woman behind the counter asked me what I wanted, then graciously did the self-serve for me: a pre-packaged noodle bowl kept warm but still fresh.

The menu choices are varied and unique, not boring. They're also healthy and reasonably priced: sushi, wraps, soups, salads, noodle bowls, rice bowls, and powches™ (“hot hand-held happiness”). This shop is small and tables are few, but Londoners don’t seem shy about sharing a table.

I definitely recommend Abokado for lunch, and think it would also be a good choice for a quick and healthy breakfast (bagels, porridge, and “breakfast bowls”) or snack. Visit abokado.com to find their locations.

“Nice place to stop in for a quick healthy snack or lunch”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Located in a busy area of central London, this is a nice stand to stop into for a quick bite of the healthy. Specializing in wraps and soups, we had a coconut chicken soup that was a delicious way to spend 4quid. With trendy decor inside, this is a popular hangout among hipsters.

“Brilliant value for money”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Went there for lunch - good selection - helpful - and well presented. Bit crowded lunch time though - but well worth waiting for a seat
