Decent quality Japanese food at a reasonable price in central London. Nothing much to dislike about Tokyo Diner. Staff were friendly too.

Busy place, great for a quick bite before theatre, walked in after only 5 min queue. Enjoyed Pork Katsudon, sashimi, karage, Sapporo and house white.

If you are a fan of noodles, this is a prime spot. We had the Udon (tofu) and Soba (chicken), and now I'm hooked. This visit was really worth the cost: We had sashimi, beer and noodles - total cost 38£! Also the green tea...More

Very good value for money, this little gem can be very busy though. Always free green tea and, to respect Japanese traditions, prefers word of mouth rather than apply a service charge.

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.
