Top 5 reviews of Shimogamo
In the hippie town of Camden is a hidden gem just 5min away from the tube station. This place gets filled with Japanese people living in North London which is a good sign! And I'm a regular there as well, they do homely food to fresh sushi.
The toban yaki is one of my favourite and depending on the day they might have beef/duck/pork and basically you grill them in front of you on a hot plate.... more
The Tonkatsu is to die for!
Staff is the friendliest you'll find in London as well.
Dishes are not expensive, yet the quality is great.
Try the dragon roll with the Tonkatsu, a miso soup to wrap it up.
Charming little place. more
This place is absolutely great, the fish is all fresh and it feels very authentic. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because of the desert. We ordered the assorted desserts and we were expecting Japanese desserts(since this place is all Japanese!) but instead it was all pies and cheesecake, not at all what you would expect at a Japanese restaurant. It came with green tea ice cream... more
Nice and warm place, the hot sake is my favourite! And the 3 kind sashimi taste really fresh and good! more
Shimogamo is one of the less spoken about Japanese restaurants, that in my opinion offers one of the best authentic Japanese food there is, in a traditional environment too. I'm not just talking about the sushi but also their hot dishes.
Most of the waitresses are Japanese and service was friendly, smiley and approachable. It's also reassuring to see a lot of Japanese families dining there... more
