    Sakura is very close to Oxford Circus. Very brisk and brusk service. For more neighborhood-y, go down to St. Christopher's Place and then head north to Marylebone Lane and go to Tomoe.

    For fancier, go down to Tottenham Court and go to Roka. Roka is pricey, but very very nice. Fancy.

      Somewhat close is Kikuchi. On the pricey side, but very carefully made food with an artisan's touch.

        I found a great restaurant only a couple of days ago. If it's value you want, this was excellent for lunch. We had a choice of about a dozen "meals" for only £6.50. This consisted of soup, 5 salad dishes, your choice of main dishes or sushi selection and a simple dessert. The main dishes we chose were great - and plenty of them so I guess the sushi would be good too.

          Kulu Kulu Sushi on Berwick St is worth checking out - only a five minute walk from Oxford Circus, and very fresh sushi.

                sorry! Yes, Brewer St (I always get those Soho streets mixed up despite working there for years).The Japanese supermarket there is also worth checking out

            Defune is about a 10 minute walk from Oxford Circus. It's one of the best sushi places I've found in London.

                There is Chisou too. Really close to Oxford Circus. On Princes Street. They have a restaurant and a take-away place. It's quite pricey but really good.

                  Cafe Japan just down the street by Piccadilly Circus is great - filled with Japanese students and business folks. Really good.

                    in addition to tomoe... on marylebone lane across the street from tomoe is Cocoro... the chef from Ubon (just closed, related to Nobu) has just started here, should be promising (i haven't checked it out recently)... also, for good take away sushi that is very very fresh and cheap is Atari-ya... They are a wholesale fish supplier and supply most sushi restaurants around london. there are only two tables and a standing bar, but you can't beat the quality for the price. its on James street just north of oxford street near selfridges.
