Time Out says

This in-and-out Soho sushi joint is more about speed than impeccable service, or setting. At busy times, staff will even ask you to leave as soon as you’ve finished eating. Pick whatever takes your fancy from the conveyor belt, where hot and cold dishes do the loop, or for a more extensive range opt for à la carte.

The menu features the likes of sushi platters, tempura, udon noodle soup or classic hot dishes such as sweet miso-glazed aubergine – here served unconventionally in chunks. Futomaki and inside-out rolls are generously filled with anything from deep-fried salmon skin to tuna and avocado.

Kulu Kulu is a definite place to enjoy what Japan has to offer. It's one of the best places to go and eat sushi in London.

I've previously visited the South Kensington branch and it was fantastic.

The Soho branch definitely was no exception. Your getting the same, fresh quality as you would in another branch.

I could have sushi all day long, everyday of the year. I absolutely adore sushi, sashimi, teriyaki and all types of Japanese treats.

This was my second time visiting a Kulu Kulu and it was an unforgettable experience.

I wasn't expecting to see what I saw.

Me, my partner and my dearest friends were having a great time indulging in these exquisite, tiny plates. You would never guess who I saw on the other side of the conveyor belt.

I had to look twice, I couldn't believe who it was. We noticed straight away that it was Margot Robbie, but we wasn't sure.

My heart was pumping so fast that evening. I didn't know what to do.

One of my all time favourite actresses was on the other side enjoying her meal.

Yes I saw Harley Quinn. I really wanted to go up to her and give her a hug, but I couldn't.

My partner decided to just go for it and say that he loved her work as an actress and that she was truly stunning in person.

She was so sweet and kind. They hugged and said goodbye.

I was so happy for him, but at the same time I was kicking myself. A tremendous experience indeed.

Moving on swiftly, Kulu Kulu offer great, healthy, delectable options of sushi for a reasonable price.

Your definitely getting high quality ingredients that are freshly prepared in front of you.

You get a big option of what to choose and if you don't see what you like, then you can definitely order it with a member of staff quite easily.

It's all very simple and fast.

I enjoy feasting my eyes at the small plates moving around me on a conveyor belt.

I would definitely recommend trying the Boiled Spinach rolls with peanut sauce and sesame seeds on top. It's divine in every way.

You also have to try the grilled salmon with teriyaki sauce. This was probably one of my all time favourites. Once again I could eat salmon every single day.

Try their Temaki hand rolls, they are truly beautiful. Their salads and sushi rolls are appetising.

Also have a look at their platters as they offer a more diverse range of styles.

You really get an in depth menu of Japanese culture.

I felt that this branch was a little wider and a bit more spacious.

All in all I would recommend Kulu Kulu to anyone. It's a great place to enjoy sushi around the Piccadilly area.


Love MD.

Seriously impressed at the price and quality of the sushi here! I've always loved the concept of YoSushi, but been consistently disappointed by the stale rice and non fresh fish. Kulu Kulu has the cute little conveyor belt... and the similarities end there! It was so fresh, nice variety, and a fun intimate atmosphere. Couldn't recommend more! 


I was planning to give this place 3 stars, as it’s all too basic: a conveyor belt with typical Japanese sushi and roll selection. The best things get fished out fast, and on more than one occasion I was wishing I had longer arms to reach for that tuna sashimi being sneaked out by a person sitting ahead of me at the conveyor belt. The service is barely there: you get your own (free and unlimited) green tea, and getting anything else to drink is a bit of a struggle during busy lunch hour. The selection of sushi is decent, yet I would totally go to Itsu if I’m after some decent sushi on the go and there’s an Itsu around. Food quality is good but not the best. Prices are decent but not that low (I paid over £ 20 for my meal last time). So, it was a solid 3 star affair in my mind. And then I checked their website. Well, all the things I’ve mentioned are there, properly addressed. They promise nothing but basic Japanese food in no-fuss surroundings at a decent price. Nothing too exciting, but all very true. At Kulu Kulu they definitely deliver what they promise. So well deserved 4 stars (I’m reserving my fifth one for places who deliver beyond expectations)!

Good sushi for cheap prices - not a big variety but I'm a regular and I know what I like. The salmon sashimi is to die for, even if sometimes the slices are so small I have to have three portions to feel happy! The soft shell crab roll is divine and very filling. Many meat and veggie options too, and if you don't fancy what you see on the conveyor belt you can always order a platter or other dishes of your choice. Highly recommended, but be careful as the Soho branch gets crowded pretty quickly at peak times.
