Squaremeal Review of Cafe Japan ?

“Food, food, food – you don’t come here for the decor,” enthuses one fan. Clearly, Café Japan has made little effort in the way of decorative embellishments to win over customers, but no matter. The place has its devotees and the use of the word ‘café’ goes some way to excuse any capital investment. What you get is straight-up Japanese food prepared before your eyes in the open kitchen by the front door. Sushi and sashimi attract the lion’s share of the praise: salmon and avocado inside-out roll, say, or classic nigiri and maki. There are hot dishes, with familiar options such as prawn tempura and chicken teriyaki alongside the more glamorous black cod. The low prices are part of the attraction too, and we reckon these are indeed cause for celebration.
