Japanese food doesn't really get the credit it deserves, except for sushi that is. I however absolutely love a good chicken katsu curry and I never miss a chance to have one when I can. That's why I really like visiting the Japanese Canteen. The decor is simple, as you would expect in a canteen, but the food is great!

See? Wagamama does suck.

Grabbing a quick Japanese bite needn't be a bland (Wagamama) nor sterile (Itsu) experience.

Went here for a quick dinner. I got the Korean Fried Chicken. The meal itself came out pretty timely and was decent.

It was pretty spicy (which I appreciate) but the flavor didn't seem to really fit the food. Overall a mediocre meal for a decent price (around £6).more

Wagamama's....Move over!!!!! I am thrilled to have discovered the Japanese canteen! The chicken katsu curry was more than just edible! It was stunning! I got a coke and miso soup too and it was under a tenner! UNBELIEVABLE value!more

I had the £5.95 Chicken Katsu curry, I was hungry, it was edible, there's not an awful lot more to say about the food. Japanika do indeed do it better.

The decor was very swish in a modern but slightly warmer than Wagamama way.

This is not a venue, but if you are hungry on Middlesex Street it will do.more
