SquareMeal Review of Cocoro

1

"GOOD"

“Really takes me back to life in Japan”, mused one well-travelled reader after visiting this bubbly oriental bolthole. Inside, Cocoro has a pleasingly offbeat, independent feel, whether you’re surrounded by Japanese students in the neutral ground-floor dining room or chilling in the sedate basement with its shoe-free tatami mats. Either way, expect a big menu with lots of pictures to help the uninitiated. Browse the list of nigiri, maki rolls and sashimi, try pork shabu-shabu salad with sesame dressing or go for some gyoza dumplings; otherwise opt for a bowl of udon noodle soup or a plate of sushi rice topped with breaded tonkatsu. Set menus proliferate at lunchtime, while dinner heralds some Euro/Asian crossovers in the guise of Camembert tempura or deep-fried chicken nanban with tartare sauce. The drinks list includes plenty of saké and shochu.

This is a great restaurant for a simple, but quality, Japanese food. Good value for money in comparison to other Japanese restaurants in the area and the sushi was fresh and delicious!

I have been to Japan several times so far and love the food. I can experience Japanese pub experience here! It really brings me back to life in Japan. Hot dishes here are all nice and worth to try!

A quality Japanese restaurant which is reflected by the comparatively high prices but also by the taste and presentation of the food. We ordered Sushi/Ramen/Teriyaki and some further hot dishes non which disappointed (would particularly recommend the Ramen and O-toro which also come at a reasonable price). The service was at par with peer restaurants and the waitresses were pretty and helpful. It is recommendable to order a table downstairs which is more popular compared to upstairs and has a more authentic Japanese feel. Left the restaurant without feeling any wow factor effect but more importantly feeling very happy with the food. I would happily recommend the restaurant to anyone who wants to have a change from going to Kikuchi/So etc.
