Square Meal Review of Kikuchi ?

“An enigma behind a mysterious grey frontage”, this unselfconscious, undiluted Japanese eatery is a lure for foodie pilgrims, businessmen and others who are really serious about raw fish (“give me my sushi and leave me alone”, pleads one fan). The speciality of the house is superbly fresh sashimi, with yellowtail and o-toro (fatty tuna) both highly recommended, but it’s well worth exploring other sections of the all-embracing, traditional menu. Among the highlights are miso soup with clams, breaded pork skewers glazed with a darkly sticky sauce, baked aubergine in sweet white miso, deep-fried mackerel and lightly battered tempura prawns. To finish, refresh your palate with green tea ice cream, and sip saké from a pretty pot. Service is graceful and sweet, but eating here doesn’t come cheap – as ever you get what you pay for.
