SquareMeal Review of Kiraku

Bright-orange paper lampshades in the window cheer up Kiraku’s plate-glass frontage – and there’s plenty more to cheer about once you’re inside this small, utilitarian izakaya. Expect to find groups of suited Japanese salarymen, young local couples or single sushi fans watching football on TV as they nibble at the bar. The menu covers much of the classic repertoire, so pick your way through ‘toro’ tuna nigiri and scallop sashimi, nibble on a boiled prawn and cucumber maki roll or go off-piste with flying fish roe and sea urchin. There are also several hot ‘bowl’ dishes such as chicken and egg on rice, king prawn tempura or pork katsu curry, plus some more esoteric specials – perhaps monkfish liver with ponzu or deep-fried fishcake with cheese to go with a shot of saké or shochu. ‘Kiraku’ means ‘relax and enjoy’: a pithy summation of its appeal. Takeaways available.

The mark of a great restaurant is their understanding of how to balance flare and style with sheer simplicity, and the team at Kiraku understand this balance perfectly. Their pared back approach to cooking allows the freshness of the ingredients to stand out, and the dishes are an utter delight. Having been to many of the top restaurants in London, Kiraku certainly ranks up there with the best of them. My favourite dishes continue to be their agedashi tofu (melts in the mouth), their beautiful sashimi selection (the scallops are particularly sweet and wonderful), and the delicious pork skewers. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
