Toku, Edokko & Atari-ya (Part 4/5)


Situated next to Japan Centre in Picadilly Circus, I came here for lunch with my workmates. The food is good but expensive for what it is. I am more inclined to head to Golders Green where prices are friendlier and food is better.

Chicken Katsu Don £9.50

Will I recommend: No
Will I come back: No

Catching up with Jen led us to Edokko. An easy to miss place with its unassuming entrance, I really had to count the numbers to make sure I don't miss it. 

We were seated at the front in our own private booth area while I noticed Japanese locals being led off to the back somewhere out of sight. I wonder what that means. 

The food was good but unspectacular. I actually think that it is a little expensive for what it is and it doesn't differ from the myriad or choices of Japanese places available. 

Will I recommend: Yes if you're around the area. 
Will I come back: I won't make a special trip.
Have I had better: Yes

I'm a fan of Atari-ya. Although it was a long wait in my previous experience, I've now learnt the art of how to obtain your food faster especially during lunch time in the St. James branch. I am always in for a bowl of Chirashi which I find is fresh, tasty and value for money for what you get.
