This serviceable kaiten outfit on busy Kingsway is a popular shout for local workers & LSE students in search of a quick sushi fill-up – though larger groups can pack into the side booths for
mighty bowls of noodles followed by a karaoke session in one of the bookable spaces downstairs. Top-notch sushi & sashimi, freshly prepared by chefs in the centre of the conveyor belt, includes
mackerel, sweet shrimps & fatty tuna belly, all served on colour-coded plates (£2.20-5.20 each). Bulging hand rolls, neat maki & battleship maki loaded with gleaming fish roe are equally
tempting, though hot dishes such as chicken teriyaki are more hit & miss. The set-up is smart – think a gleaming black counter & Japanese artwork lit by traditional square lanterns – but
there have been a few gripes about service.

I have just the place in mind, Sushi Hiroba in Holborn.Why? Because:A) It's a stunning restaurant, but is totally unpretentious.B) You don't need to have that awkward silent moment gawping at the menu, thinking "What do I order? What do I order?? There's so much choice Ahhhh...." Here you just sit around the conveyer belt and casually choose whatever dish you fancy. Easy.C) You can share ;] Ice-breaker bonus!...
