Near Oxford Circus station
Sushi was pretty much like what you would expect from a good but not extremely excellent Japanese restaurant. Round and fat pearl rice that is well marinated with mirin together with fresh sashimi will give you quite a good sushi and that’s what chisou serves.
Tempura batter was light, crispy and not too oily which is what a good tempura is. Prawns are fresh and there’s salmon tempura too.
Cod fish with miso is really well prepared. A little charred on the sides but that doesn’t affect the overall rating for this dish as fish was cooked just right. Not overcooked at all, just right, very juicy and tasted sweet with the miso. Yums.
For just 20 pounds, you can get a lunch set that consists of a salad, mains and dessert which is quite reasonable. A good Japanese restaurant to my addition but then not so excellent that it deserves a michelin recommended sticker I thought. However, as long as the price is right and the food is good, I feel that it’s worth a visit or multiple visits.
