Review: Eat Tokyo Diner, Trafalgar Square

I’ve been to Eat Tokyo Diner twice now and I absolutely love their food. Their portions are large and fairly inexpensive. The food is authentic and very tasty. Even my Japanese friends mention its authentic and reminds them of home. I actually prefer this restaurant to Taro, you get much more for the sane price!

The only downside to eating at Eat Tokyo is that you may need to wait up to an hour for a table to come free. There isn’t as big of a queue as Misato, but the restaurant is small, so there is limited space, and there are usually large groups waiting for tables. So it is advise to book beforehand.

The wait on my first visit was approximately 30 minutes. My friend – now Wifey (long story short the dinner became a date and she somehow proposed to me. Well that joke escalated quickly!) – and I ordered a Chicken Teriyaki Bento this came with age tofu, salad, 2 pieces of sushi, pickle, the chicken and a bowl of miso soup. I also ordered a side of sushi tempura sushi rolls which was over the top because I ended up not being able to finish it all! It was very filling. The presentation of the tempura sushi was very pretty, tasty too!

The next occasion was a dinner meet up with some friends. This time the wait was around an hour so we were all starving. My Japanese friends were craving katsu curry and had even bought supplies from Chinatown to make it. When we had finally sat down, we browsed the fully extensive menu (I had never seen such a massive folder of food). I had happily selected a tempura bento for myself when Mao spotted a gentleman behind us eat this massive pate of curry. She instantly asked him what he ordered and he pointed it out on the menu for us. To our surprise, the katsu curry was only £6 for a normal dish sized dish and £8.50 for a double-up large portion! So I changed my mind and ended up ordering the large chicken katsu curry. The plate was huge and almost filled the table.

The ratio of the portions was right and enough to have curry with rice. The pieces of chicken were juicy and meaty. Just thinking back to it makes my mouth water.
The pork katsu was thinner and probably because the oil wasn’t boiled enough, the pork katsu was oily and not meaty. The size of the double portion would be enough to satisfy two people and you would still roll out the restaurant.

I would really recommend this restaurant to those with large appetites and love Japanese cuisine. It’s nice in there and the staff are generally nice, if they’re not busily running around the place serving. Eat Tokyo has many branches across London, the one I went to was in Trafalgar Square.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Would you visit this particular restaurant, or do you have a favourite place of your own?

With love,

    It’s always nice to find an authentic Japanese place! That’s too bad that the wait can be long though. Sometimes I avoid places that I know will be crowded because I’m so hungry, haha. All of the food looks tasty though! And the portions look so big! I would probably visit that place if I were ever nearby. There’s a couple Japanese places near me that are authentic and that I love to go too :)

  • Wow that restaurant sounds so cheap! The food looks and sounds amazing. The portions are so large! In the restaurants I’ve been eating at lately, the dishes are so expensive, so I expect a large plate of food, but I always end up getting an extremely small plate of food that does not satiate my hunger. It’s unfortunate the wait is really long, but whenever I eat dinner with my friends, at least one of them is late anyway, so it’s not that much of a problem for me.

    The food looks lovely! That’s so cheap for such a big portion. I think if I went I’d have to go for the small sized one – I couldn’t eat all that. Glad you had a nice time!

  • As much as I hear about curry, I have actually never had some and I have been wanting to try it. Thing is, I don’t want to just try it any where… so that is why I haven’t yet.

    Looks like fun too ♥
