Lagu is a lovely little place that fortunately is in my neighbourhood!

The atmosphere is lovely and classy but not pretentious, service is friendly, helpful and makes you feel very comfortable.
Food is just wonderful, healthy but tasty and very good value.
Every time I feel like having a treat I would go there as they just got it right and it is a relaxing environment.

I cannot recommend it enough!

Go lagu! :)

We have accidentally discovered this lovely Japanese restaurant about 3 months ago since then we have been there about 6 or 7 times for our weekend lunch.
The quality of the food is amazingly high for a small place and the deco is very relaxing.
Gorgeous blend of trend and tradition is the signature of the menu and recommend to anyone who love their food to explore this authentic Japanese experience, we ll be there for many more times.

Unpretentious neighbourhood restaurant serving quality Japanese food. Feels like you could be anywhere in Japan.
This small, quiet place in Lavender Hill only has a few tables in the front and 4 more at the back but how lovely and peaceful it feels. It sometimes doubles up as an art gallery exhibiting photographs.
The owner/hostess makes you feel at home greeting you warmly and tending to you with great attention.
The menu is simple and short but all food served whether sushi or Kara-age is simply delicious and served in pretty traditional Japanese dishes. Portions are generous. The Bento for £10 is fabulous value and offers a nice variety of warm and cold dishes.
We have been back 3 times and never disappointed.
Having travelled in Japan I guarantee a genuine relaxing Japanese experience, different from the high-speed Kaiten.

Tucked away on Lavender Hill, Lagu is a lovely setting. The hostess was welcoming and helpful. BYOB made it a great value meal. Vegetarian options were delicious, I had the tofu salad with mooli which was beautifully cooked, tasty and fresh. Have been back since and I highly recommend :)

I echo what everyone else said. Food is wonderfully authentic and tasty, with special attention to using fresh and organic ingredients. Beautifully decorated, lovely owner. Would really encourage people to go and try this out. There weren't many people there on a Friday night and this is a great shame!
