Like the Mitsuryu (see below), this Japanese restaurant lies just outside the limits of London’s Chinatown, a bit below Shaftesbury Avenue and a couple of blocks above Leicester Square. The three of us ate a light meal here prior to a matinee. We had spinach...More

I had lived in Japan for over 6 years, and the experience of Tokyo Diner in London was as Japanese as the real thing in Tokyo or Kyoto. The food was authentic and delicious, the waitresses polite and attentive, and the overall atmosphere just reminded...More

This place served some good food. The only reason I have given it 3 out of 5 is because there are better alternatives for a more competitive price.

I came here for a bite to eat in a Saturday evening. We were seated swiftly and our orders came quickly. I throughly enjoyed the Japanese dishes. The atmosphere reminded me of my time spent in Tokyo eating at inexpensive diners.

I hated it. Paid 18.5 pounds for a Katsu Bento. It was horrible. Everything was dry as if it had been sitting out for hours. Rice was inedible. I asked for just a few soup spoons of Katsu sauce (which they obviously have ready) so...More

Tokyo Diner is one definitely of the hidden gems of Chinatown. A tiny cafe just off Little Newport Street with an unassuming exterior, it hides a wonderful and authentic dining experience. I arrived post-theatre at around 11pm, not expecting many places to still be open....More

enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
