Asakusa is a low-key and modest Japanese canteen near Mornington Crescent tube station. The extensive menu includes a wide range of Japanese dishes: sushi, tempura, tonkatsu, noodles, etc, as well as Japanese beers and sake. The quality is good, the prices reasonable, and the service...More

The original Japanese owner of Asakusa retired in August, and it is now run by a new non-Japanese owner. The quality went downhill, unfortunately. Our starter arrived after we had finished our mains, and Tonkatsu was very tough. Takosu was way too salty. They still...More

It is always difficult to get a table at Asakusa which is known for its good Japanese food at competitive prices. The decor is very old and could do with a refresh though the welcome is very hospitable and the service friendly and quick. The...More

Very good place with real traditional food. All the dishes were well prepared with a minor issue with the freshness of the Edamame and with the lack of space between tables, but it definitely worth the visit.
