Tenshi

Squaremeal Review of Tenshi ?

From the small dining room with its minimalist Japanese design (monochrome, clean lines, paper & bamboo), diners can see busy sushi chefs & fresh raw fish in the tiny open kitchen. Tenshi (‘angel’ in Japanese) does a brisk trade in takeaway sushi boxes during Angel’s lunchtime rush, but eating-in is a decent & inexpensive option. The extensive menu lists all the expected sushi & sashimi dishes, which are ferried gracefully to table by helpful waitresses. Hot food covers all bases too, so you can slurp your way through a bowl of tempura udon (noodles in soup with king prawn & vegetable), enjoy the crunch of chicken katsu curry, or dig into okonomiyaki (‘cabbage pancake’: much nicer than it sounds). To drink, sip on beer, wine, saké or one of various teas.

Will. Never. Order. Again.

For online orders, this company has outrageously rude, offensive, and incompetent customer service. The upshot: Will. Never. Order. Again. The short version: While waiting for a delivery order, I received a call about an item out of stock. There was a substitution I was willing to accept, although it was £1 more. I also offered to simply accept a refund for the missing item. Person on the phone kept insisting I take an alternate item at the same price, and did not know how to refund...

First trip to Tenshi and we will defintely be returning, the food was excellent from the freshly prepared sushi and Chicken Gyoza dumplings to a beautiful roasted Aubergine with miso paste, the starters were all perfectly cooked and very tasty. Our main courses of Chicken Katsu curry and salmon teriyaki were also very tasty, generous portions. The only negative was that all of the dishes arrived as they were prepared in the kitchen so we had all the starters and main courses on the table at once,...

Despite being packed and what looked like too many people in a small(ish) kitchen, food arrived very quickly and hot. Sushi was tasty and fresh. As was the unagi don (eel & rice) and tempura prawn hand roll. Though not cheap – what Japanese is? – it was good value for the quality. Not a date place, but not overly stark or ‘eat quick and get out’. The upstairs – which I passed through on the way to the loo – seemed to have a quieter atmosphere. Though I didn't drink any alcohol, the sake list looked...
