Usually one of my fave Japanese restaurants but this time the meal felt rushed. We ordered several plates which all came out at the same time which spoilt the meal as we hs to rush to eat hot food before it became too cold - there was barely any room on the table and the waitress continued to try to squeeze them all on. It Was overwhelming and made us feel like the kitchen just wanted to prepare the food get it out ASAP then close the kitchen (it was around 9pm!). Other than this good was good and staff pleasant as always.

Had a great dinner at the sushi bar. The sushi was very good, especially relative to the reasonably pricing.

A little disappointed as had great experience having dinner at this place. Lunch ingredient doesn’t feel as fresh compare to dinner, maybe due to lunch set price. Service a little slow at the point of ordering, but the rest of the time was fine.

As always a great night at Atariya. The sashimi is wonderful - melts in the mouth - and the rolls are really flavoursome. Was disappointed that my favorite ohitashi is no longer on the menu but they have a great broccoli dish on there instead.

Food was amazing, special mention of the o-toro and uni! The o-toro was melt in the mouth and pretty unbeatable price for the quality of the sushi and sashimi.
Service was quick and staff were friendly, the only qualm I had were the proximity of neighbouring customers. Tables were a little too close but for a small restaurant it’s pretty inevitable I guess.
Would definitely come time and time again!!

We went for a lunch before the theatre and they have a great lunch deal although we went a la carte. A good selection of items and very attentive service. I would say overall the cost is really reasonable, although there is the odd item that seems a bit expensive (e.g. prawn tempura). That said it is a great local sushi bar that I would recommend.

I was a little disappointed. After a few months break I cane back to my, so far favourite sushi bar in London and the quality of the food just wasn’t the same. Fatty tuna maki had chunks of fat impossible to chew, that’s not what toro should be. I wasn’t as impressed as i usually am and will at this point I think the place is overpriced for what it is: tiny, slightly too tiny place, not in central location, lacking ambience... food was what I used to go for but now... not too sure.

The sashimi was really fresh and the grilled mackerel was tasty too. Worth going to as a place to catchup without needing to shout across the table, and over a quality food.

Since new management takeover has really gone down hill. Food even more chilled than before. Sadly as I’m a local, I’d say go elsewhere
