The nigiri sushi we ate here was absolutely some of the most delicious we have ever eaten in London. O-toro, chu toro, unagi, sweet prawn, scallop we kept ordering more and more. The beef and chicken yakitori were equally delicious. The kirin beer was ice cold. Service was super friendly. A gem of a place can’t wait to go back. Thank you for a fabulous meal.

This is, by far, the best sushi in the area. very very fresh, and the service is awesome. Shoko, Shu (spelling sorry!), Mariko and Hitomi (the boss) are just such nice people and really care that we enjoy the experience every time! I live a few blocks away, and go every couple weeks. The chefs prepare the dishes to look nice, and also with a level of perfection. Most important, for people living in London, its a short tube ride, and dinner for 2: 2 Yamazaki whiskey to start, spicy edamame, and spicy shrimp (the sauce is sooo good) to start, a veggie roll menu for my friend and tuna platter for me and a bottle of good haut medic wine - all for under 100£. In our first year in London, Sushi Murasaki has become my favorite place! Also, for non-fish folks, they have several meat and vegetarian selections - no worry!

I have been eating sushi for 40 years and this is the best, freshest sushi I ever ate.

Perfectly prepared and presented, just the right amount of wasabi and sauce.

The sushi chef was charming and informative. A night we will treasure and tell our friends about.

Few places I’ve been to that serves authentic, well made sushi - the fish was fresh and the sushi rice served at the right temperature. We particularly enjoyed the chef’s nigiri selection, the Murasaki roll and the eel and cucumber roll.

Superb sushi with perfect service in a cosy yet elegant neighbourhood restaurant. It’s undoubtedly the best of its kind in London, the only challenge is working our way through the menu as everything so far has been fabulous.

We have been regulars since it opened as we are local. Always good food and service. However its excellent tempura vegetables and prawns are no longer on the menu due, we're told, to "technical' problems in the kitchen. So hot food is limited here.

Quite disappointing. Sushi is fine, but prices are far too high. Only 2 tables occupied at 8.00 on Saturday evening is not a great sign.
