Satsuma, Japanese Cuisine – London.


On entry it is clear that Satsuma has been recently renovated, the decor is contemporary with a clean cut design, incorporating bold segments of orange. The vibe around the restaurant, which is filled with groups of chatty young professionals, is a relaxed buzz generated by those who have clearly discovered an urban and exciting place to dine.

The distinctively visual menu is tempting as each dish is accompanied by a photo. The attentive waiting staff deliver well presented food, which is truly full of flavour. If you have time ensure you order a starter as the perfectly sized portion leaves you eager for your next course.

The Japanese restaurant specialises in Katsu, offering a range of options to suit all; chicken, pork, salmon and prawn etc. A personal favourite was the Salmon Teriyaki starter, cooked to excellence, being mouth-watering in taste and delicate in texture, it is a dish that any menu picture will not be able to do justice. For the more adventurous customer the Eel Maki Roll starter is equally delicious.

Satsuma leaves you feeling perfectly full, without being heavy and set for a night out, but if you’d rather a night-in the restaurant also provides a take-away service. Although it may be easy to walk past on London’s busy street we suggest that you do walk in.
