We went to Wawa for Friday dinner, not sure what to expect. The restaurant is pretty basic with mostly communal tables and benches but the food was great. Sashimi, sushi, tempura and chicken Katsura curry. Sake and a good bottle of wine. I was amazed at how good value it was and how good the food was. Service was friendly... More

Pleased to see so many positive reviews for this restaurant - it is absolutely fantastic and indeed it has amazing food. Not to mention the kind and tentative service! Definitely one of the best Japanese restaurants in the medium price range. I will be returning very soon.

I live in Bermondsey and was surprised by this little neighbourhood gem! The food was really tasty, particularly the ramen burger! The sushi was also good relative to its price points. It's a great spot to eat, two minute walk away from tower bridge. The service was also good, with the waiters regularly asking us if we were ok.the only... More

We nipped to this Japanese place with our children after skating at the Tower. It was fab. The sushi and sashimi were excellent. The soft shell crab tempura was light and tasty. We also shared a ramen katsu burger which was unusual but very good. The service was superb and it was pretty averagely priced for a London Japanese. Will... More

Came here with friends to enjoy some sushi on a Saturday night. It was pretty quiet so service was fast and efficient and we were fed quickly. Sushi delicious and pretty reasonably priced for London, bill for 4 with 2 drinks each and a LOT of sushi came to £110 so we were very pleased. Have to have the melting... More

We came here for dinner on a Saturday evening. We came quite early (6/7pm) so perhaps benefitted from a great ratio of staff to customers, but we had a wonderful evening of great service, great drinks and even better food. We hadn't booked but there was plenty of space. We sat on a table with benches which might not be... More
