Review of 'Hazuki Japanese Restaurant'

Conveniently located just around the corner from Trafalgar Square, Hazuki is a small unassuming restaurant that serves basic, but quite good, Japanese food.

The set menus offer the best value for money with our early evening visit we tried “Menu C” which consisted of “Miso Soup” (quite tasty), “Appetizer of the Day”, “Sashimi” (a few strips each of tuna and salmon), “Assorted Tempura” (a disappointing offering of vegetables and prawns that used a rather too thick mixture of tempura batter) and “Sushi” (a large assortment of nigiri and a few maki rolls). For a Japanese restaurant the price of £18 was not too staggering with only the tempura disappointing. The “a la carte” menu was no where near as good a price with dishes very quickly adding large amounts to the bill.

The small restaurant is quite basic and simple on it's two floors – but this is ideal, really. I liked the simple black-based interior.

Service, particularly on the first floor, is adequate but not fantastic requiring us to frequently look around to see if we could spot one of the staff…but we were not in a hurry.

It can get quite busy so booking if you want to visit in the evening is advisable.
