The food at Pompoko is very good value and tasty. I had tempura prawns and the curry, which was delicious and came very swiftly. They allow your own drink at a £1 corkage charge which is handy, if you've forgotten your booze there's a tesco over the road. Not ideal if you want a relaxed sit down dinner as there... More

5 of us arrived having just been to the komedia. Handy location and didn't have to wait too long for a table as it was peak time. Food very well priced and tasted pretty good. Would recommend.

Decent but not that authentic. Very unfriendly and unreasonable staff. Good prices and overall good value

On entering Pompoko I was pleasantly surprised, the cosy and authentically Japanese decor was inviting and reasonably priced menu welcome. The disappointment came when the food did. My tiny serving of Tofu Curry arrived with a mountain of white rice (mostly stuck together). My partners noodle dish was very small, it looked as though the cook had got distracted half... More

We first got in and were a little skeptical, as there is not much seating and is pretty cramped, but then the food arrived (surprisingly quickly I might add) and we were blown away. Between the three of us we had the spicy tangy breadcrumbed pork, honey, ginger and soy beef, spare ribs, dumplings and spring rolls. All of it... More

I have been going to Pompoko since time immemorial (15 years). I have always enjoyed the food and it never fails to amaze me how quickly it comes out. I had dinner there last night with my 3 year old and we asked if they use MSG. We didn't get a straight answer but were told they use some sort... More

Pompoko has been my go to for many years now when I want a quick but tasty sit down meal. I've taken family there, dates, business associates and of course visited on many occasion by myself. The service is always prompt and the food is always delicious.

No frills, but delicious and filling food, this place serves you fast and efficiently. The restaurant can get a little crowded but this is because the place is great

Try to sit upstairs or tucked away from the entrance if you can. It is very busy as they do a takeaway service which is really popular and it can get crammed with people waiting for orders (hence 4 stars rather than 5). Food is delicious, very very fast service and super cheap. If you're in a hurry and/or want... More
