Ate here with friends who are vegetarians, I recommended the 'Bento Box' which I had eaten here before. The Miso soup with a side salad starter along with both the chicken and salmon Teriyaki boxes were delicious. The quality and freshness of the fish makes the cost of £16 great value.

We liked these tapas like Japanese, the food was good and also the service is fine, maybe the prices are a little high.

We ate here tonight and were really disappointed. Although the produce was decent quality there was no thought to putting it altogether. Everything was very basic and the portions are very small. We paid over £10 for a bowl of noodles in plain broth with about 30grams of beef in it. The sushi portions are tiny. We came away hungry... More

Bar Japan is a small restaurant on Old Brompton Road and is great if you want real Asian food at a good price, service is good and the food is also good. If you're looking for a real high quality Asian meal, then maybe Bar Japan isn't for you, but otherwise, if you're looking for a decent restaurant with good... More

We went to Bar Japan because it was across the street from the flat we were staying in, and wanted an easy meal after a day of walking. It was mostly empty when we got there, but they had a steady stream of customers and takeout. We started with edamame, tempura and drinks, then switched to sushi and a bento... More

Just came back with a £25 take-away for one and am still hungry (and am not a big eater). Very small portions. I ordered a sea weed salad, a six piece roll and five pieces of sashimi.

This little restaurant in Earls Court is a great find. I've been many times and they serve high quality sushi and sashimi, which arrives quickly and is served by really friendly staff that make you very welcome. It's a relaxed and calm atmosphere.
