SquareMeal Review of
Tooting Bec: not the first port of call for Japanese cuisine you might think, but Fujisan has been quietly trading here for years. This neighbourhood restaurant & sushi bar hardly meets
fashionable West End standards, & nor does it serve the most authentic Japanese food, yet a meal here can be satisfying & satisfactory. Noodle dishes are surprisingly good (try the duck
yaki udon, stir-fried with red peppers, egg, bean sprouts & seaweed), as is the sushi. Popular, too, are the well-filled bento boxes, which at around £10 are a steal, as is the £6 set lunch.
Service can be ‘somewhat surly’, however, which flattens still further the atmosphere in the already bland dining room. Bring your own merriment or make use of the takeaway service.
