Cafe Bento – Camden

Went to this Japanese restaurant on Saturday, after a nice day out in the park, and War of The Worlds in the cinema opposite.
What can I say? Well for a start, it’s run by Chinese and not Japanese. We ordered a sashimi bento box, and a chicken CURRY bento, as I really fancied a Japanese curry.

Didn’t have to wait too long for my girlfriends sashimi bento to arrive, however it was about 10 minutes later
that mine arrived…and then they got it wrong!! Chicken teriyaki. I complained but in usual English stylee
when the waitress asked what I wanted to do, I said I’d keep the teriyaki – mainly because I didn’t want to wait another 10 minutes, by which time my girlfriend would have finished her meal!

The sashimi bento was very good, the chicken teriyaki however was not. Seemed to just be normally cooked
chicken covered in the teriyaki sauce, not cooked in it like you normally get.

Anyway, point being, wouldn’t recommend it.
If you want a good Japanese meal at a fair price, check out Soho Japan near Oxford Street. Highly recommended!
