It won’t win any awards for its decorative firepower, but memorable furniture isn’t the reason sushi fans trek to this smartly modern but somewhat anonymous Japanese restaurant at the north end of London Bridge. Turn left at the door for the sushi belt or veer right for the more comfortable surroundings of the formal dining area. Either way, the wide-ranging menu mixes tradition with a few contemporary and international touches – as in black cod with miso paste or piri-piri chicken satay. Also expect good-value lunchtime sets and bento boxes too, plus an impressive selection of sushi, including some offbeat choices: try the sea-urchin nigiri, kanpyo (seasoned gourd) or natto (fermented soya bean) rolls. Lubrication is supplied by Japanese beers, hot and cold saké, and a short list of affordable wines.
