Not a bad meal - the tempura prawns and vegetables were good in a light batter. I had the steak and my husband the chicken curry. Both well cooked and well presented. The problem ? We had never eaten Japanese food before and didn't know...More

This place is just a gem. The sushi is really fresh and delicious, the main courses tasty and of generous proportions. In addition the price is extremely reasonable, I would have expected to pay 20% more for this kind of quality. If you are in...More

This was probably my fourth time at Wow Simply Japanese. The service appears to have improved from my previous visit - the Japanese waitress who served us was smiley and attentive. It was a busy evening in the restaurant, but the waiting was easily bearable....More

I'm a huge fan of Japanese food, and we came in reading reviews expecting this to be excellent. We couldn't have been more wrong. We arrived at 8.30pm and ordered by 8.40pm. We did not receive our food until 9.35/9.40pm. The restaurant was not busy...More

After a wonderful evening at the Spaniard where we were recommended this restaurant, we ended up here in a group and tasted loads of things on their menu and weren't disappointed. Small, cute, no nonsense food, tasty. Recommended

This is my first time going to a Japanese restaurant- at first I had doubts. But this was one of the best meals I've ever had!!

We ate here on a Tuesday night and most tables were occupied; not a bad sign. Large menu of Japanese favourites. Good sashimi and cooked seafood. We ordered about 8 dishes and were surprised that sashimi was not served first. Nevertheless we enjoyed everything.

It is great sushi, super fresh salmon sashimi and amazing tuna sashimi with poppe seeds. You have to try the mango ice cream balls they are amazing. Seriously one of the best giapanese place in london. Price is also good and fare :)

I don't pretend to be a connoisseur of Japanese food but I do really enjoy it and had the pleasure of enjoying it in Tokyo as well. I thought this restaurant was amongst the best I have been to in London. Really fresh food, presented...More
