One of our favorite Japanese go to restaurants in central London is Kiku. The restaurant is nice, clean, friendly, has everything traditional on the menu and the food is always spot on.
Food: This dinner we ordered tempura udon, tempura soba, two rolls and one soft drink. Everything was exactly what you would expect - delicious! I have never had a bad dinner at Kiku and I've probably tried half the menu.
Price: 45.68 GBP for two people. Yes, one would think that's expensive for noodles and rolls, but nothing in central London is cheap.
Ambiance: Depending on what day you go the restaurant could be filled with Japanese business people or locals. This place is not touristy at all. And when you see Japanese business people in a restaurant you know it's good!
Service: The service at Kiku is always great. The servers are very friendly and attentive.
Would I go back? Yes! As mentioned it's our go to spot for good traditional Japanese food. It's consistently good on all levels and that's hard to find nowadays.
