We arrived the day before the owners/chefs were closing to go back to Japan for the summer. The food was divine, especially given the amazingly affordable prices, and service was fantastic. I recall the staff greeting and bidding farewell to everyone with cheerful shouts in English and I was sorely tempted to yell back, "You're welcome!!!" and slam the door to match them in volume.
Café Japan is a sushi & sashimi specialist – & a damn fine one
at that: if the fish were any fresher it would slap you. Portions are large
& prices are reasonable for the likes of fatty tuna, marinated mackerel
& seabass sushi, creative hand rolls &, we mention it every
year, black cod with miso for just £12.
Who knows? Maybe if I had, I would have gotten my long-sought-after job in London so much earlier.
