Squaremeal Review of Tosa ?

This ‘lovely little Japanese grill’ may not be London’s prettiest spot, but locals find it hard to resist the allure of its sushi, sashimi & flame-cooked meat. Tosa’s dining room resembles an upmarket canteen, decorated with Japanese paintings. A robata grill emits barbecue aromas, while sushi chefs beaver away behind a wooden bar. The grills are a must, especially the salmon cheek with grated radish, & the asparagus & pork belly. Skewers cost just £2-3, but readers warn against over-ordering. Dishes are designed to eat tapas-style, so accompany the skewers with well-assembled & good-value nigiri, temaki or sashimi. Mixed tempura & bowls of noodles complete the repertoire. Service is friendly, but can lose focus at busier times. There’s also a branch at 152 High Road, East Finchley N2 9ED (020 8883 8850).

I had heard great things about Tosa and was happy these were confirmed. Its a lovely little Japanese grill in between Ravenscourt Park and Stanford Brook so definitely one of those places the locals tend to frequent. I went with a vegetarian so was worried she wouldnt have a decent enough selection – but the recommendations i had heard had mentioned there was a wide variety for carnivores and veggies alike. We decided on the vegetable tempura – though i additionally had 3 skewers of the pork belly,...

Editor's pick I lived in Japan for several years, speak the language and I am a Japanese food fan . Tosa is owned by two Croatian brothers who were trained for over 15 years at a Japanese restaurant in Finchley. Their dedication to authenticity is commendable . Their wives are Japanese and Chinese, you see them helping out, it is a family enterprise. I was one of their first fan and client and continue to support them regularly because I want them to flourish and so I can have my Japanese fix…since I am a Japanopile...

The restaurant is delicate in it's presentation from outside and within, and traditional Japanese table laying ensures you feel the authenticity of the place. Serving staff are patient and helpful, assisting us with ordering a range of dishes as a starter and providing a repeat order of the t-bone steak, which is highly recommmended. The range of dishes is excellent, from tempura and sushi to sesame green beans and incredible circles of pork on a stick. The flavour of everything was excellent. Nice...
