I've been to Japan and I found Pompokos was very authentic. It is very small and very popular so you sometimes have to wait for a table but it's worth it . The staff are Japanese and as it's not part of a chain the...More

Our starters of miso soup and gyoza were nice but the mains were disappointing. The fried seafood udon was not well stirred fried with bits of udon still pale without any sauce coating. The rice in the donburi was not of a good quality.

Very nice food served here and fairly cheap even though they have recently increased the prices. Also very quick as well so if you go there you can be out in 5 minutes if you're getting a takeaway.

Nice since you can bring your own alcohol to the place! The bad thing about that thing though is that you have to pay extra for it.

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...More
