This little Upper Street Japanese restaurant didn’t look far to choose its name – ‘tenshi’ translates to ‘angel’. It impresses with a wide selection of Japanese dishes: sushi, sashimi and tempura, yaki-soba (fried noodles), katsu curry and udon noodle soups. There’s even a selection of okonomiyaki, those hearty Japanese ‘cabbage pancakes’ which come with various toppings and lashings of mayonnaise and Worcestershire-style okonomiyaki sauce. Finish off the meal with some black sesame ice-cream or various aduki bean desserts.

Been here a good few times this year: recommended, we've always really enjoyed the food & contrary to the other comment service was good & with a smile. Menu has a bunch of stuff you don't see elsewhere, it's more than just sushi & more than just noodles and is pretty cheap considering the area!

Pretty disappointing, both in quality of food and service (although i believe they were doing their best with a very full restaurant!)

Great food, fresh and good choice available. Service can be slow.
