Offering a wide range of Japanese cuisine, Kurumaya restaurant near Mansion House in the City of London is one restaurant that takes you on a thrilling trip to the East. Bringing together two ways of dining, Kurumaya offers the ideal setting for anything from a romantic dinner to a quick working lunch. In the basement you’ll find an intimate but modern a la carte restaurant where mouth-watering Japanese cuisine can be enjoyed in tatami-seating style. On the ground floor, however, Kurumaya offers a more relaxed setting – the Kaiten bar. Here, the celebrated sushi, maki and sashimi of experienced head chef Rico Venzon trundles by on a conveyor belt and a selection of hot dishes can be ordered. At lunchtime the ambience is buzzy and friendly around the wedge-shaped sushi bar and the fish is so fresh it almost jumps off the plate. The wine list tends towards whites, sakes and Japanese beers.
