What a great little spot, emphasis on the word ‘little’. It’s just off Piccadilly Circus in a bit of a culinary desert, so during lunch and dinner it gets BUSY.
I was introduced by a friend and we went for late lunch around 2pm, so breezed in, got a table and fairly speedy service too. There are a 6 option for lunch. Hakozen Bento Box, 11 pieces or 14 pieces, Vegetarian Bento box, Kobe Beef Katsu Gozen, Kobe Gyu Don or Kobe Teppanyaki Kaiseki.
We both opted from he Hakozen Bento box with 14 pieces at 40GBP. and were blown away by the presentation. The box had 14 beautifully presented tiny dishes…. on tiny dishes, accompanied by barley and endgame rice and Kombu Dash soup.
Both my friend and spent the following minutes ‘ooh-ing’ and ‘mm-ing’ as we declared each item to be better than the last one. My fave pieces were scallop sashimi and the kobe beef (this is what they are known for)…. however everything I ate was DELICIOUS.
The waitress did give us a very nice explanation of what everything was but we were so distracted by the presentation that I confess we didn’t actually pay enough attention.
If you get a chance go here, Its amazing, you will not regret it. I can’t wait to go back again……
