Food was great as always. Although, I had the Katsu Don for main and felt that the batter was quite thick and not like I had had before. However, the Takoyaki was excellent, as was Chicken Kara Age. Service was great. Food is well priced here.

It was so nice to be back! Brilliant food and lovely staff, as ever. A nice relaxed vibe despite the indoor dining restrictions. All around a fabulous lunch and delicious sushi.

Sushi presentation is excellent, almost too good to eat! Noodle soups are a delight and the aubergine dishes are a firm favourite. Great for vegetarians and a selection of vegan options on the menu now too. Harajuku has always been high on my go to list of places to eat something both homely and interesting. Kaori (the owner) is a lovely person and the whole staff are always welcoming and helpful.

I do like Harajuku Kitchen but I wasn't all that impressed this time. We booked our table for 7pm, were there 10 minutes early and seated. We were asked for drinks around 10 minutes in and then 10 minutes later for food. This came about 7:30/40. At 7:56pm the waiter was like "can you hurry, we close at 8pm. This was not pointed out when we were seated. I had to get up and asked if I could get my food packaged. Our dessert wasn't even done by then. We got the apple gyoza, supposed to come with ice cream. The ice cream was missing. The food was great but I feel of the food can't be served to allow starters, main and dessert, it shouldn't be offered. Or it should be communicated that it is possible to package. I would recommend to order a table early so you get the chance to eat in peace.

Some of the servers were not wearing masks and this made me a bit uncomfortable. They were also a bit unprepared when we arrived even though we had a booking. Food was great and it had a buzzing atmosphere.

The sushi was tasted really old and dry and the nori was soggy. Even with a reservation we waited over 20 mins. The donburi was overcooked and flavourless. The aubergine was great though. They comped the drinks because we had to wait and that was nice too. Lovely place, not the best the food.

Lovely wee Japanese restaurant. Good food at a reasonable price, although the (inordinate number of) staff were slightly all over the place. Nonetheless, a good eating out experience.

dishes we had tasted so much and beautifully presented. Their menu will be changed depends on what they get and seasonal, which is good for customers. Staff were friendly and provided careful services. Definitely recommended.
