Handy for singles or couples, this long-established conveyor-belt sushi joint is keenly priced. Quality is good enough, though we found the thick fatty stripes in the raw salmon off-putting, the nasu (aubergine) miso oily, and the sushi rice too sticky. Still, the japanese potato salad is delicious doused with soy sauce (and easy to eat with chopsticks), the tempura is elegant and the fresh spinach rolls drum-tight under their cloak of sesame dressing. Serve yourself green tea from the urns if the blue-aproned floor-staff don’t get to you in time.

If you are looking for good sushi, go somewhere else. If you want cheap food that vaguely resembles Japanese then it might be an OK choice. Service isn't great either. The waiter first asked if we wanted something after we had already finished eating.
Yet again TimeOut got someone to review a food type who has no idea what they're talking about. Great place, although I do hope that they haven't recently used longer grain rice to reduce costs.
Kulu Kulu is my favourite Sushi joint ever and I have tried many! Time Out you got this one so WRONG!
Not sure what planet the Time Out reviewer was on (!) but Kula-Kula is in my view the best 'conveyor' belt chain in London by some way. User comments below speak for themselves - great value; quality produce. Try for yourself!
I get take out from Kulu Kulu a couple of times a week and I just wanted to tell everyone that this is the best and only place worth going to for sushi! The prices are really affordable and the quality is always great. I usually get the mixed sashimi or the salmon roll (16 pieces!!) and it is always delicious. An added plus, the servers are all really helpful and prompt.
