WOW Simply Japanese Reviews

We couldn't get enough of the tasty garlic egg fried rice and moist, warm spider roll (soft-shell crab futomaki) - WOW is still a safe bet for decent Japanese dining.Time Out Eating & Drinking Guide
The sushi and sashimi were very fresh and the grilled food was very tasty. The dishes we had was beautifully presented and we were very impressed. Really enjoyed ourselves and their price on the menu are very reasonable.London-eating

The food is extremely fresh, good quality, authentic and excellent value for money, which really does set WOW Simply Japanese. Trusted Places
This is quality and expertise I'd only expect at very, very good Central London restaurants. The presentation is beautiful and the fineness of taste combinations is just outstanding. I and my dinner companion were just amazed by the quality and the relish of what we were eating. I am really happy to recommend this place, they deserve it.Urban Spoon
