Tokyo Diner, WC2H 7JP

Small, diner-style Japanese restaurant on the edge of Chinatown (corner of Newport Place and Little Newport Street); Leicester Square Station is just around the corner. The decor is sparse and the service is basic but not brusque. Tips are not accepted, by policy, which makes a meal cheaper than it might appear at first.

Kake and three friends visited on a Monday evening in May 2007. Three of us had bento boxes, which included seaweed salad, three generous pieces of salmon sashimi, rice, cold fried aubergine, and protein of choice (two of us tried the chicken kara fry at £13.90, one of us the salmon teriyaki, at £14.50). I can't remember what the fourth member of our party had — something in a bowl — but he seemed to like it. We noted that there was a vegetarian bento box (£9.90) on the menu, listed as also being vegan. The menu also included sushi, with a 13-piece nigiri/roll set priced at £9.90. The house wine (£6.90) was perfectly acceptable, and the green tea (free!) was very good.

This place has been around for quite some time, and seems very popular for a quick meal at a fair price.
