Overpriced restaurant with appauling service from staff who seem overworked. I ordered a large beef bulgogi meal, which was overpriced and very sparse on meat content. When I told the staff about this, they said that since 10 minutes had passed since I placed my order and that they could not take my meal back. When I escalated my case to the manager, she advised that there was nothing that...more

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.

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

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
