Squaremeal Review of Tokyo Diner ?

Spread over three floors in Chinatown, this friendly, inclusive and reliable café runs until midnight, 365 days a year, and is intended as a home from home for its Japanese customers and anyone who appreciates good everyday food. Come here for donburi rice bowls, katsu curry, bento boxes, noodle soup and sushi at excellent prices. Seared salmon tataki is dusted with roasted sesame seeds and served with daikon, carrot, radish and ponzu dressing, while tofu katsu ju (a new vegan dish) arrives on a box of rice, which will be replenished on request if you’re hungry enough – a nice thought that applies to all set lunches and other rice-based dishes. Service is considerate, the decor is attractively low-tech (slate floors, wooden tables, ‘noren’ curtains, paper lanterns), and the atmosphere gently quirky.

We went to the cinema in Leicester Square and when we came out, Tokyo Diner was right there, waiting for us! It is very Japanese-feeling, with the lanterns & typical entrance-way. We were seated right away, though later on it got busy and looked like people were having to wait 10-15mins for a table. My wife had the sushi which she said was very good. I had a salmon teriyaki bento box – everything was cooked well and the sashimi tasted very fresh. Our son had some noodles which were served in a huge...

Don't expect fireworks, but if it's consistently good quality and value for money japanese food your're after then this place is for you. Whether its Donburi, Bento Box Sets or a (huge portion of) comforting Japanese-style curry, you will love this place. The sushi and sashimi are good quality, too, though you might miss the presence of tuna which the restaurant does not serve (in abidance to its policy on sustainable fishing. Very conscientious). In true Japanese-style you are also not expected...

    Set over three floors, the narrow but central establishment can be found opposite an ‘award winning gay bar’ (I don’t even know what the bar is called, but that’s what it says plastered all over its exterior.) Tokyo Diner has been open since 1992, and focuses on a green and environmental way of serving. Always actively looking for sustainable sources of supply, they do not source and serve tuna due to the issue of over-fishing, see their website for an explanation.
