Never ceases to impress. A tiny restaurant. A tiny kitchen. Producing small plates with huge flavour. It isn’t cheap but it’s innovative, brilliantly executed food. You won’t be disappointed. Recommend the tuna tacos, wagyu beef tataki/truffle.

Great food! Friendly staff. Not an authentic for a Japanese person but they have their own creative interpretation and twist to the traditional Japanese.

Titu continues to amaze me with both the food and the service. The gyozas are always great and their summer specials are delicious, especially the Korean cold noddles.

Dinner at Titu was long overdue (no trips to London dues to lockdown). As usual Shepherds market restaurants were full of crowds enjoying summer evening so the ambience was pleasant. The restaurant was busy as usual. The menu had been slightly updated since we last visited. Loved the regular popcorn chicken, spinach salad, avocado salad, Tuna Jalapeno, shrimp tempura. But missed the complimentary lotus chips with dips which were no longer served and were also disappointed that the kitchen had only one portion of truffle chips and Green Tea Brulee. All in all a good but expensive experience but not the same as before Covid.

The service was really bad we were moved three times and they allowed bookings when they were full. Also just utterly rude, I won’t be returning.

First time I've ever bothered to review place but feel I have to on this occasion.
Basically it was chaos!
We arrived at 7pm to be told there was hardly any choice of wines and by the time we left at 8.15 they had pretty much run dry.
The food we had was good but the time between starters and mains was way too long and then some of our order was missing.
What we did eat was great and I would still recommend people to try it. I just hope someone from Titu reads this as it's a great place and the staff were very nice but I'm just not into spending around £100 and feeling short changed and still hungry.
I know times are tough and people are short on staff but if you open up for business you have to be ready.
Fingers crossed they improve for their own sake.

This is the second time that I have eaten at Titu. I love the vibe and the staff are all lovely. The food is also delicious and it can be found in a really cute area of London. My only negative comment would be is that they didn’t have any of the wines that we wanted but the lovely waitress made a plan.

The food was so good! The beef tataki and the tuna tacos where amazing.

However the service was a lot to be desired. For a restaurant with 5 tables the service could of been so much better. It took a long time for the staff to realise we need them to the point we had to calm across the room. Also the male waiter was constantly texting on his phone.

You be honest I would recommend for the food but to be honest I am not sure if I would like to deal with that service again!

We showed up on a rainy dark evening and were met by warmth and friendliness. Apologising for the weather! And informing us that protective umbrellas would be coming within the hour. If we wanted to leave, it was not a problem. But we stayed, and were treated to amazing small dishes, with special mention to the seaweed salad and the truffle fries. The gyoza were also yummy, especially the prawn ones. But by far the best part was the service. Definitely a new favourite!

Arrived at 7, ordered drinks, they arrived at 8:30. Some of the Food finally arrived at 10:00pm. Waiter kept forgetting all of our orders and didn’t put it in the system. Apologised for forgetting then blamed it was due to short staff, however none of the other tables had this issue. Out of 6 items ordered only 3 items arrived for the 4 of us. They had the nerve of still charging us, though “discounted”, it was shocking they still felt a bill should even be offered. It was absolutely freezing, no blankets or heaters, we were starving by the time 11 hit, I’ve never in my life experienced such service. If this was staff at any of my restaurants or hotels, serious repercussions would have been made, a “sorry” is not good enough for a 4 hour wait for nothing in the cold. It’s a shame as I was hoping to host a few intimate private gatherings for a few business launches throughout the year due to location and incredible food choices. I’ll only ever recommend to friends and family to stay clear of Titu. Being a hotelier, feedback is of utmost importance, thus I always have given restaurants a benefit of doubt and contacted them directly to give them constructive feedback to help improve their services for the future if ever there was problems during my dining experience, but this was the most appalling service I have ever ever received. Stay clear, it’s worth waiting till the full easing of lockdown is over and to spend your time and money somewhere worthwhile. I’ve never experienced such disappointment.

We arrived at our table at 9:30, to be greeted by two very well-spirited and welcoming waiters. We started on a few cocktails (whisky sours and and a sake-based drink, both absolutely divine, although could have been a bit stronger) and some Japanese beers (the names of which escape me, as they had run out of Asahi). We were given some great recommendations for their famous gyozas, the favourite of which must have been the foie-gras and chicken, or the Wagyu and black pepper gyoza. From then on we continued trying more and more small dishes and were astounded at the end when presented with a fairly reasonable bill, considering the amount we had to eat and drink. All-in-all, a wonderful meal and I would love to go again

A very unique place in the way that it is very very small.. probably, not the best place to go for social distancing! Difficult to have conversations too, as you can hear people speaking next to you (as they are so close). But the service, cocktails and food were great!

Absolutely loved this little gem of a restaurant - the food was fantastic, much better than what “big name” high end Japanese restaurants charge, at about 60% of the price.

Service was efficient and friendly, with great decor and ambience.

Hoping to return very soon...

Delicious meal two days before lockdown. Very friendly staff, food came out quickly, very impressed by the cocktails. Slightly rushed because of the seating times and getting everyone in before lockdown but we completely understood that and the staff went about it very well. Will definitely be returning post lockdown and supporting the business (if they do takeaway during lockdown)
