Cafe Japan is my local and i am never disappointed. True, i ALWAYS have the tori chicken, rice, and aubergine starter – however its always super delicious and fresh and completely reasonable in price. Ive even been known to get takeout here too – when i really cant be bothered to cook and fancy an indulgent evening! Ive been to the Zumas etc but surprisingly, you pay a lot more there but its the same, if not lesser standards of cooking! Id much rather frequent here and not feel ripped off. The place is always busy – we got a walk in table for half 6 recently, only really allowed to have it till 8 when by then there was a queue of those who had already booked. There is limited space, say 6 booth types and 3 tables for 2 though you can always sit at the counter and watch the friendly chefs do their magic.
Pricewise – i could have the above for approx £15 at most. I could get a full meal here for half the price of a main at Zuma. My friends who love sushi always rave about the food too – plus its often full of Japanese people (always a good sign). Im no sushi expert but there seems to be a decent selection plus the normal black cod or yellow tuna etc etc. I never had pudding but there is the matcha ice cream etc for those who fancy it.
Well worth a visit up to North London!
