I have been a fan of K10 for years since I have been working in the City. Its a conveyor belt sushi restaurant but quality of the food makes this place stand out.
Food: The Japanese cuisine is good here. Fresh, interesting variety, not just sushi or sashimi but also hot dishes and interesting takes on sushi. And you can always request what you want if you don't see it. I love the variety which floats by where you can see the dishes being offered vs just reading a description. You can also order things from a menu. I also like that its not just pure sushi or sashimi pieces, it is slices of sashimi with ponzu sauces and textured toppings, or with spicy Korean sauce or with a soy yuzu sauce. These sashimi style dishes you normally get from high end sushi restaurants, you can get in small tasting portions here. I also liked the cooked items such as the spicy fried calamari, perfect pan fried dumplings, and tempura crab or shrimp or veggies. They also have some nice looking desserts there but I never make it to dessert as I fill myself up trying all of their interesting dishes. Definitely a good variety, presentation and availability of the dishes you want, all made in front of you.
Service: Quick service there. They do a great job turning around the tables and the wait (unless you come at 12.20!) is never too long. Waiters are friendly and get you whatever you need, but you rarely need to interact with them unless you need order something. That being said they are always around and accessible, they clear the dishes often so there isn't clutter in your seating area. They are always pleasant to deal with. The place relies on turnover at lunch but you go in knowing this and don't waste time by dawdling unnecessarily but that being said, I have never felt rushed and pressured to leave.
Prices: This place isn't cheap and in fact its a bit pricey for an every day lunch. For one person I would pay about £25 for about 6 dishes to fill me up. (splitting the check here is easy, you pay what you ate)
Ambiance: This is a bar set up and the seats are fairly close so probably not appropriate for a business meeting where being overheard is a concern. The place has a nice bustling vibe. There are self service water spouts at every table for still or sparkling water, and wasabi / soy sauce / ginger all sits in an embedded space in the bar so maximizes room for you to eat and accrue dishes with. Its a relaxed place for an enjoyable lunch.
