A word from Kurumaya
Offering a wide range of Japanese cuisine, Kurumaya restaurant near Mansion House in the City of London is one restaurant that takes you on a thrilling trip to the East. Bringing together two ways of dining, Kurumaya offers the ideal setting for anything from a romantic dinner to a quick working lunch. In the basement you’ll find an intimate but modern a la carte restaurant where mouth-watering Japanese cuisine can be enjoyed in tatami-seating style. On the ground floor, however, Kurumaya offers a more relaxed setting – the Kaiten bar. Here, the celebrated sushi, maki and sashimi of experienced head chef Rico Venzon trundles by on a conveyor belt and a selection of hot dishes can be ordered. At lunchtime the ambience is buzzy and friendly around the wedge-shaped sushi bar and the fish is so fresh it almost jumps off the plate. The wine list tends towards whites, sakes and Japanese beers.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We had dinner at Kurumaya on a Thursday, surprisingly it was not that busy. The food was nice but nothing outstanding. The sushi was fresh. The service was quite good. "

  • "Love this place. Food is always lovely. The traditional seating area is one of the reason I keep coming back."

  • "We went here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the food - and the bill! - On the pricey side, but the food was good. Just a shame about the actual restaurant location - downstairs in a small cafe-style set up."

  • "Very impressed from the moment we entered. The food was prepared to a very high standard, brought out in a timely fashion. Couldn't fault the service. Looking to go again in the near future."

  • "The food is fresh and the noodle soups and bento boxes are large and I think good value. Individual sushi seems expensive (2 pieces per portion) but it is fresh and delicious - not the mass produced sushi you get in some establishments. I eat here frequently, it's just so good."

  • "Somewhat of a regular here now! Food is always lovely and service is unfalterable. Will always return."

  • "I'm not sure why this place wasn't busier. Good suchi, straightforward service."

  • "Having to take your shoes off Japanese style was a nice touch, but then the room was a touch spoilt by high air conditioning, slightly loud music and the lights could have been a little less bright. Service and food was excellent, portions a little small however."

  • "I came here with a few friends as we would be in the area of St Pauls and wanted a good meal. My mum and I had the Sashimi moriawase tray which included: Tuna, salmon, mackerel, seabass, hamachi. It was very filling and very delicious while my husband had a delicious Katsu curry. The grilled aubergine with ginger was bland and not the usual sweet delicacy you get in many Japanese restaurants. The blackened Cod was really quite nice and crumbled beautifully. Overall I would recommend and it's fair value for money."

  • "Amazing sushi, decent price, but really quiet on a Friday night (to be expected in this neck of the woods I guess). Long lunch heaven though I reckon)."
    dined on 24/05/2013
  • "The sushi here was absolutely amazing. So fresh and the service was great. It was fun to sit in the no shoes area japanese style. The only thing that let it down was we were the only diners in the restaurant. It seems this is a more lively lunch restaurant."

  • "Always a lovely and pleasant experience - highly recommend that you sit in the traditional section of the restaurant (shoes off!). Staff are always happy and friendly, food is served quickly and everything is yummy. Great for a special night out with the girls, or to share a meal with a partner."

  • "Admittedly I'm a big eater, but even for an average eater I think the sushi portions are a bit too small for the price you pay. We had the special 7-variety platter for two (£34.50) and was assured this was a main for two people, but I have felt more full up eating just starters at other restaurants!! sushi itself was decent, particularly the Toro, but 8 to 9 pieces of standard-sized sushi, no matter how decent, for close to £20 per head, is way too pricey for me. Other dishes such as the sukiyaki from the neighbouring table looked good, but I won't be back so won't have a chance to find out."
