Why yes, I did just find my favorite place for Japanese lunch this week. Their lunch sets are diverse, well-portioned and most importantly, affordable (aka you can come again and again and again).
We had their Oyakodon lunch set.
Tenderly simmered chicken mixed with egg, shitake mushrooms, carrots and onions over a bed of rice. Portion so big I dare you to finish this in one go.
Their Yasai Tempura & Tofu Steak (vegetarian).
Slices of fried beancurd served with salad, rice and pot-stickers – also comes with a side of miso soup.
Their Tori Yaki Aspar
Teriyaki grilled chicken served with asparagus.
Their Dozo sushi lunch set.
6 pieces of salmon and avocado sushi with 5 pieces of nigiri – fresh and beautifully presented.
Overall, our bill totaled out to be around £8 per person (I know, my jaw dropped too) and we were all pretty full by the end of the meal. Service here is fast, portions are generous and quality of food is impressive. Glad I got to try this restaurant on my birthday of all days and will definitely be recommending this place to my friends whenever anyone’s looking for a Japanese lunch fix. Do note that they tend to get very business around lunch/dinner peak times, but they do take reservations for big parties so calling in a day before would be smart to avoid the queue.
PS: my photos do not do this place justice just fyi.
