Kurumaya is a Japanese restaurant in the city with a sushi bar on the ground floor and a restaurant downstairs where you can sit on chairs in front of a table, and can also eat in the more traditional Japanese way on cushions sitting on the floor after having removed your shoes, which is what I did. The menu at Kurumaya is bigger than the menu in another Japanese restaurant in the city, Miyama, and you can have a decent selection of everything. The main chef is Mr Rico Venzon, who has more than 25 years of experience in the art of sushi. I had prawn and fish tempura, chicken teriyaki and loads of sushi, some of which I remembered to take pictures off, which you can see.

I had read a lot of reviews of this restaurant and almost every acclaimed London food critic was giving this place 10/10 or 5/5. I am not trying to be controversial or stand out in my much lower rating, I just want to explain what went wrong when I was there which left me feeling a bit disappointed. I was hoping this was going to be as good as Sushi Tetsu, another great Japanese restaurant which I really like, but it was not.

I had booked a table for dinner on a Saturday evening at 6.30 on the Easter weekend and I wanted to have a nice and early dinner and be back in time to watch some nice movie with my boyfriend before going to bed. I did not know I was going to spend 4.5 h in the restaurant, freezing and being hungry for half of the time (hence I never made it back in time to watch a movie).

Akari is a very impressive little cosy japanese in Islington, on Essex Road. Food is very good, I had sushi, gyoza, seared beef, yellowtail, edamame, sesame salad, all excellent. Also atmospgere is very nice, the whole place looks a bit like a pub, and has a super nice dark lighting. If you are ever in Islington and want japanese, this is the place. And the prices are also very good for the food you get.
