4 out of 5 stars

Repeated visits in recent months have shown that this longstanding branch (there's one in Knightsbridge and another in Soho) is one of London's best low-priced outlets for Japanese small dishes. And it's not just the raw fish, either – though the quality there is very high. Cooked dishes, epecially anything deep-fried, are superlative when freshly made; a good reason to sit near the beginning of the conveyor belt on the right-hand side of the restaurant. Better still is to get dishes made to order – the staff are normally very obliging about this.

Don't go if you want to linger at length, or if ambiance matters: no kaiten sushi (conveyor belt) is right for those occasions. But if you want high quality, and the chance for a quick in-and-out, you can't do much better than this wonderful place. A light meal can cost just £10 a head. If you spend £15 a head you'll be eating generously. Only quibble about the food: sometimes the sushi rice is a little too starchy at the centre. But this is a minor quibble. Kulu Kulu is one of the best budget-priced places to eat in Covent Garden.
