I went for a Katsu curry on Monday lunchtime as I do most weeks - I work round the corner and find it to be a consistently first rate, seriously tasty pick-me-up for a crap day at work. I can't fault a single thing I've tried from the evening menu either (fab place for a beer) but the chicken kara-age and the octopus balls are simply stunning. I don't think it's over-priced because it's all ethically-sourced, handmade and as fresh as fresh can be so I really don't know what the other reviewers below are on about. Perhaps they're Tsuru's worried competition?

My favorite place for lunch !

Amazing katsu curry and nice salads .

Prices are good and the service is friendly.


The food is OK, not amazing, but the hygiene scares me. I ordered chicken teriyaki and then watched in disbelief as the guy in the back dropped the chicken onto a pile of crumbs on his cutting board and then cut it with the same knife he'd just used to slice a breaded piece. I'm allergic to wheat but no one understood what I was asking for when I explained that I wanted a piece cut on a clean board with a clean knife. The manager finally got it but shrugged his shoulders and said that wheat is everywhere. Last time I eat there.


a MASSIVE rip off!! Chicken katsu curry £6.40! And it was very mediocre, too much rice, not enough sauce, no garnish and generally lacking flavour. City Kitchen's microwave version from Tesco is better that this.
