Our Kaiten bar serves expert cuts of sushi, maki and sashimi along with a selection of hot dishes and is open throughout the day. If you are looking for more than just sushi, try our basement restaurant. Our chefs present a mouth-watering selection of Japanese food and the intimate restaurant features a sunken Tatami seating area.
Sushi is normally very good but we all ordered bento boxes, not knowing that it would be terrible quality. In addition, they were £14-16 each! I can recommend the sushi and sashimi but their cooked food from the kitchen was shocking. Waitress was kind and lovely as was the atmosphere.
Great location and very nice setting with only a few tables. The food was fantastic and quite good value for sushi.
Its jUst like being in one of the side street restaurants in Tokyo
very good japanese in barbican, good service, pretty fast.
The Japanese food was excellent and the service very good and quick. Ideal for lunch. The
Poor quality food
Tiny place not ideal for a quick bite, we waited 35min to be served 2 regular sushi plates and we arrived late to the concert. Only one kind guy serving, cleaning, taking payments and welcoming guest a bit too much for one person. The sushi was good but not exceptional, more authentic Japanese style than in other fancy places in London but the sushi master takes its own time preparing it that is not in line with London fast piece. The aircond was too strong
Dining at Kurumaya is an experience. Food is good and plentiful. Descriptions on the menu match the food itself so you know what you are getting. The only downside is the lack of space and feeling quite squashed in. We were a party of two sat directly behind a party of 4 including a child. Noise levels at times were intrusive because of proximity. If they can address this as their popularity grows then I forsee great things ahead.
Good food and ambience
We ordered unagi don and pork katsu don, plus the sashimi platter. All were good. The shop is pretty tiny so the tables are kind of squished together a bit. It's a short walk to the barbican centre if you need eat before a show!
Lovely tiny little place. Not everything on the menu was available but everything we ordered was very tasty.
Small, cosy little restaurant near Barbican with good variety on the menu and very good sushi. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly and quick as well. It is now one of our favourite sushi places, so I'm sure we'll be back there.
Was able to book a table but there was no food left
