Nice warm meal on a cold rainy day, super cheap and yummy! The only downside is how small it is but that still does not change my opinion about food.

Went to Pompoko with a group of friends. I used to come here a few years ago and absolutely loved it, unfortunately it seems to have gone downhill. The food wasn’t great. I ordered a Katsu curry and couldn’t cut the pork at all, it...More

Don't be taken aback by the outside, this restaurant has plenty of great Japanese dishes at an affordable price without sacrificing quality. My partner and I were shown our table (it is a little cramped in here - be warned) and ordered gyoza, oyakodon and...More

This place was a wonderful surprise. Luckily a friend recommended it or we may never have ventured inside. It is rather small and can be a bit hectic, but the food is well worth it. May be some of the best food I've ever had....More

Great location opposite the dome, you can stumble out a concert and straight into here for supper. I'm not normally a fan of restaurants that have picture menus, but I will make an exception for here. You order your food from the counter then it...More

Have visited Pompoko many times to both sit in and take away, the food is delicious, very reasonably priced and the speed of service is impeccable. We have visited other Japanese restaurants but Pompoko is just in a league of its own!

Japanese rice bowl style restaurant. Good cheap food, expertly prepared and well presented. Small and busy, so getting a table can be a problem but it's worth it. Great choice of dishes and brilliant for a quick meal.
