Square Meal Review of Kurumaya ?

The main attraction at Kurumaya is keenly priced sushi, so pitch up at the ground-floor bar for a quick fix from the short kaiten menu or venture down to the basement dining room – a compact, unadorned space offering the choice of traditional tatami (shoes off) or more conventional western seating. A broad range of raw fish ranges from top nigiri (toro tuna, sea urchin, tako octopus) to sashimi and temaki hand rolls: opt for a chef’s selection if indecision gets the better of you. Hot dishes run from deliciously light tempura, teppanyaki and robata grills with teriyaki sauce to donburi rice bowls – perhaps thinly sliced beef or succulent eel with a potent umami kick. Beers include Asahi, Kirin and Sapporo; otherwise, saké, umeshu (plum wine) and shochu are additions to the short wine list. Pleasant service runs at a stately pace.

    Brunch etc. :: Kurumaya - delicious Japanese in the City

    Another week, another lunch - this time Japanese with some of the girls from the office.

    We were in the mood for something a bit more exciting than Itsu or Wasabi, so we headed to Kurumaya on Watling Street for some upmarket Japanese cuisine. The basement restaurant has a very comprehensive menu - offering everything from enormous 8-person sushi platters to bento boxes, teppanyaki and assorted noodle dishes - and the fact that you have to take your shoes off adds to the authenticity of the Japanese dining experience!...
