Itadaki Zen defines itself as Europe’s first organic & vegan Japanese restaurant. The concept should work (there’s a long tradition of vegan cooking in the home country), but the food here can sometimes lack oomph. Sushi ‘sans fish’ is pretty unexciting, but moreish spring rolls & vegetable tempura get a thumbs up, as does a full-flavoured salad of spinach & tofu. Udon noodles tossed with seaweed, sesame oil & nuts has been a tad bland, although another version, served cold with vegetable tempura & a wasabi-laced dressing, packs a little more punch. Unfussy, minimal surroundings suit the culinary ethic, & pleasant staff add to the calming vibe. Just the ticket for a trendy detox.
