Superb sushi, I say SUPERB! The rolls are delicious, all the ingredients extremely fresh and they manage to keep the same quality even in home deliveries. 

Honestly, one of the best sushi place you can find in London, and probably the very best in the East end! 

The venue itself is pretty small and quit, a very simple but clean and quirky place. The staff are very polite and helpful.

If you love sushi but hate those shiny&posh japanese restaurants in the city, you'll definitely like this place.

A bit pricey  for the location maybe, but it's absolutely wothwhile, a good balance with food quality.

I know it's very anti-East London to say this but I'm do not like Aldgate East. I know, I know. I if I can't deal with the (really) shabby (barely) chic hipster vibe, I shouldn't visit but it's places like Sushinoen that force me to! 

This laid-back Japanese restaurant is quaint and quirky with a relaxed vibe and a weird fancy edge even though the menu has pictures. The food is clean and simple but extremely delicious. We had the grilled aubergine with miso paste which even my vegetable-averse husband was really into, the roast pork belly which was slightly overcooked and a bit tough but packed full of flavour, and the katsudon which was the perfect balance of sweet and savory. 

The staff are so friendly and helpful, not only to us but we noticed that they were lovely to all the patrons. They stopped to have a chat if they thought you were open to it but left you alone if they thought you'd preferred your privacy.

Luckily, it's right next to the station so I can nip in and out without even realising where it's located.

Being an lover of Sushi I was recommended by a friend to try this restaurant. I definitely wasn't disappointed by his recommendation. I ordered to start with a plate with Yellowfin Tuna that I belive is the best Sushi dish I have had..... Then I had a mixed platter of Sasimi, Nigri and Maki. As well I got some pork bellies. All really good and I definitely will go back there next time I am in London. Staff was very friendly and we cant forget a nice warm Sake..

It has this family feeling you want for a neighborhood restaurant along with tasty food but like good Japanese a bit pricey...
