We've been to Edamame several times on a Thursday evening for sushi night and I've always thought it was just okay - although I'm usually a little despondent at having spent 50 quid on sushi and not feeling particularly satisfied. It's always such a rush with constant reminders that 'the kitchen will be closing soon'. Today we tried it for... More

This is definitely worth it, you can take a look at the menu while you are queuing outside the restaurant (there is always a line in front of a good restaurant), however people move fast and we waited for no more than 20min both times we went there. The + : good food, good service, friendly waiters, not that expensive... More

A great authentic spot for Japanese food. You do slightly get the feeling you're being rushed in and out but it's obvious why - it's a small place and there's queues out the door! Well worth a visit.

Cozy and yummy. It would be perfect if it had free wifi. May feel a bit crowded. Not good for large groups.

Great little find - entirely by chance. Tiny place, and be prepared to queue, but totally worth the wait!! Great food, very cheap, fast service. Relatively small menu of traditional food. I had a veggie ramen which was fragrant, fresh and filling. Not somewhere to sit and have a leisurely lunch though as space is very limited and people are... More

Excellent Japanese restaurant. A limited but fab menu. Makes sure you have the miso soup - no idea how they make such a simple soup so delicious. It is tiny and therefore expect to queue but it is worth the wait.

I have been to Edamame many times and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing and sitting on tables with strangers is fun. The best lunch stop in Oxford.

Been meaning to come here for years! Finally made in on my 49th birthday! Friendly and very efficient service. Great intimate atmosphere. Food tasted fantastic, just like I would make at home - best Asian cuisine I have had in the UK. Great flavour full sauces which came with our beef and salmon. Perfectly cooked and good portion sizes. Food... More

Love this little small shop so much! They served good quality of Japanese food. 'You pay for what you get!'. Love their Salmon Teri so much! It is definitely worth a try if you are in Oxford! =)
