Misato or Ichibuns virtually opposite eachother on Wardour street. If you do Ichibuns, try the amazing Japanese loo.

Tonkotsu on Dean is pretty good too.

If I go into Misato I'm probably going to end up having the teriyaki katsu but well worth a go.

Misato is very easy for favourite dishes. I usually have the tori soba soup. So big and filling.

Misato suuuuucks.

Kanada-Ya in St Giles or on Panton Street.

I also like Tonkotsu although their portions have got stingy since they first opened.

Misato is cheap and massive portions, no complaints

Id rather have good food and a smaller portion, thankyouverymuch. Quality over quantity.

There's something to be said for both, Roku was gorgeous through and through, but i would not turn down the six meals I could get at Misato for the same price.

Right now I'd go to Misato for kutsu, Eat Tokyo for tempura and Roku for sushi.

Well, Kanada-ya close at 3 like loving idiots. Didn't help that buses just didn't bother running and made me an hour late.

If you want to get it looked at I can recommend a good doctor. Hes a good man, and thorough.

I went to Claude Bosi at Bibendum yesterday and it was excellent. Definitely recommended - it was pretty inventive but not properly weird like some places.

Somebody here recommended them to me 2 years ago when there was only 1 place. We went there and queued up for 15 mins. The ramen was amazing and I plan to go again when I go to London in June.

That said: Is there anything new (opened in last year) that's a must try in terms of streetfood/low key eating in London?

Has anyone of you ever eaten at the Indian YMCA? It came up as a "secret London thing to do" in some website but I am not sure it would hold up.

Im doing the Poons pop up tomorrow, as I have many happy memories of going to their Leicester Street branch as a kid. That said, the menu is properly tiny, and doesnt have anything I remember having at the proper restaurant.

I would look up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this. Can you and your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?

Thanks to whoever recommended the ROKA tasting menu above. Went there over the weekend for the best sushi I have had in my life.

I ate at IYMCA a while ago. Its cheap and decent, unpretentious and tasty but not amazing. Good value though.

On the other side of the spectrum we went to Fera for our combined birthdays and 10th anniversary. Very, very good. The food is innovative and quite challenging in some ways (unlike, say, Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley where everything is just delicious) but almost always to good effect. Service is as youd expect.

Poons was really good, but sadly nothing like I remember.
