Momiji describes itself as a zen Japanese restaurant, and while the peach walls and alternating soft pink and white leather armchairs are peacefully pattern-free, the overall visual effect is more clubby than you might expect. It’s a good looking space; confidently contemporary. The kitchen knows what it’s doing, too. Sushi, maki, sashimi, tempura, yakitori, raw fish (served in pairs) - the usual Japanese dishes are all here. The adventurous make a bee-line for the specials menu; all seven dishes come with miso soup, salad and plain rice. Momiji is easy to get to from Bastille Metro - a big advert inside the station directs first time diners.
