Itsu is a chain of Japanese restaurants that has emerged in recent times. The interior is very designer, with conveyor belts of sushi sliding past the glass shop front and little stools to perch on. The menu is a totally original mix of Japanese and European dishes. The plates are colour coded according to price. Itsu does not take reservations, but kindly asks their guests to entertain themselves in the bar area whilst waiting for a table.

Duck Sushi Roll: less than £4 ... need I say more?

Sushi is the most dangerous of the bunch, and the kamikaze of abundant sushi chains hurts my heart, and causes me to say things like "this is NOT sushi! This is just flabby old raw fish. Who wants to...more
That pretty much sums it up. i've been in London for 6 months now but for some reason I just couldn't bring myself to eat here. My gut just kept saying 'nope. move it along. you don't want food from here.' I should have continutied to listen to my gut. Unfortunately, in stead of listening my gut, I had the cali roll and the Detox 7 veg. They were both bland.
