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.

My friend and I were craving sushi so decided to try Tenshi.

I tried to book but they don't take bookings at Weekends. We turned up at 9 and we're seated with no problem.
If you want instant sushi it's not the place as there is normally a 30-40 minute wait on busy nights.
However it's worth the wait. We had delicious chicken gyoza before and then really enjoyed the spicy tuna roll and California roll. I thought the price was pretty standard for sushi and the drinks were reasonable.
Really nice place to eat in Angel.


Nice local japanese restaurant, and not too expensive! Lovely authentic interior decoration too. Recommended.


great food, fresh and perfectly made. Nice atmosphere, relaxed and friendly. Very good service too. we'll be back soon, Thanks!


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.
