Sumsushi - NW3 Japanese option

Tried this place on a whim last week. Apparently it's been open for 1 year but I hadn't noticed. Then again I've only been in London on and off this last year.

Was surprisingly impressed with the udon soup with tsukune (chicken ball) for £4.70, decent noodles, good [sweet soy] broth, OK chicken balls. Very generous size as well. Sushi (nigiri, rolls and gunkan rolls) weren't bad either. Worth knowing about if you live in the nabe.

Delivery and takeout only.

  1. Damn, I wish you'd posted this a week ago; I was up near there last weekend and could have done with somewhere good to grab a bite to eat on the go.

    The Sumsushi website says they have "a small, contemporary eat-in space" — are they being over-optimistic about this?

    Also, that location is very close to a Feng Sushi, if I remember right. (Not been to one of them for years and can't remember anything much about it; also not sure what to think about the chain-ness of it.) I don't know the area well, but this clustering of sushi places strikes me as a little uncharacteristic. Still, if it's been there a year it must be doing OK!

      Fair enough, you could eat in there and it would be fine although not somewhere to linger. And yes it is contemporary and clean.

      Feng Sushi @ London Bridge I tried a couple of times 3-4 years back. Not offensive by any means but run of the mill - I fear that I have become something of a sushi snob these last 2-3 years! I think that the best options in that zone might be in Camden - Sushi Waka on Camden Parkway and Asakusa on Eversholt Street. Haven't been to either place in a fair while but a Japanese friend was recommending the latter place earlier this summer. It's an izakaya but may well have sashimi that surpasses offerings in sushi-yas if it's anything like some of the izakayas I've had the good fortune to sample in Japan. I'll report back if and when I revisit.

        Just noticed another new Japanese place in the nabe walking around today. It's called Ikura, it's on Haverstock Hill, a little north of Chalk Farm station, and it has a sushi/izakaya menu that sounds quite promising. I will try and sample and report back.
