Don't expect fireworks, but if it's consistently good quality and value for money japanese food your're after then this place is for you.
Whether its Donburi, Bento Box Sets or a (huge portion of) comforting Japanese-style curry, you will love this place.
The sushi and sashimi are good quality, too, though you might miss the presence of tuna which the restaurant does not serve (in abidance to its policy on sustainable fishing. Very conscientious).
In true Japanese-style you are also not expected to tip, though the Gaijin owner will certainly not miss the opportunity to ask you to tell your friends to come and try Tokyo Diner for themselves in the future.
Service ranges from delightfully subservient japanese friendliness to downright groggy (you know who you are! though I haven't seen her working there on my last visits…). The place also seems to have an obligatory temping job for SOAS students of Japanese, but that's just my speculation.
Finally, come here on a regular basis and start noticing the shifting wall decorations…and together with the excellent food you'll be mesmerised into loving this little gem of a restaurant.
