Continuing on the sushi theme, I recently lunched at Kulu Kulu on Brewer Street. I had to wait for a seat to free up for about 10 minutes, this conveyor belt style restaurant is very popular with Soho workers.
It is worth a wait though, fresh sushi is skillfully created in the centre of the belt before being sent on it's journey to the eagerly awaiting hands. I enjoyed the agedashi tofu, both the salmon sashimi and california rolls I sampled were delicious and the edamame were great, I'm of the opinion that you can't really go wrong with edamame though.
There are plenty of dishes that you won't find doing the rounds at your larger chain sushi joints such as soft shell crab and soba noodles (cooked to order). And unlike a certain larger chain, you won't have to pay £1.20 for tap water here. Kulu Kulu is also a chain with other restaurants in Covent Garden and South Ken.
It's very small and no nonsense but I loved it here and had my fill for a mere £17. Don't go expecting a long lingering graze, it's yet another trusted quick stop lunch venue in Soho.
