I do find their food a bit hit and miss, especially with the portion sizes. I have ordered the prawn katsu curry and have had a challenge to eat it all. However I have had the Prawn or Tofu Chilli Karaage don and spicy kimuchi don, to find the portion on rice to be variable. The Karaage don and Kimuchi... More

First time ordered. Super fast. The vegetable tempura was hot crispy and fresh. Chicken gyoza delicious. Noodles great. Sashimi fresh. This delivery turned up like I was sat in a restaurant. Definitely order from here again. So good. Thanks.

A friend recommended this restaurant and I'm glad we went. It's also in a part of town (Seven Dials) that we probably wouldn't have seen on our two-day visit otherwise - there's some nice bars and some other nice looking restaurants there too. We weren't sure what or how much to order because there wasn't much explanation on the menu,... More

We have been to Murasaki for lunch twice in the past month as we are new to the area. On both occasions they did not bother clearing our table after we finished our main courses or offering any desserts or hot drinks. It was not a big deal the first time around but during our last visit I had to... More

Brilliant healthy food for all tastes. It's far more than sushi and tempura. I tend to go for one of the interesting hot mackerel main courses. Wait staff are very entertaining :)

Whether at the small restaurant at Seven Dials or the Take Away venue at the top of Norfolk Road Murasaki has consistently delivered outstanding Japanese food. Of particular note is the crispness of the Tempura batter and freshness of fish which suggests the batter is changed frequently and the highlight is always the Sashimi platters. Very reasonably priced and very... More

Chicken kebab starter was not breast- slightly chewy/ rubbery bits of thigh? For main, chicken Banbu tempura was soaked in sauce which was too vinegary,so soggy not crispy. I had heard good things about the food so was very disappointed. My kids both had chicken katsu - they said it was not nearly as nice as Wagamama's katsu. The whole... More
