Much like people who honour pinky promises, decent, everyday sushi spots are hard to come by in London. That's why Dozo Sushi is worth knowing about. It’s a popular walk-in only restaurant that does the usual sushi, sashimi, temaki, and maki rolls. The ‘dozo’ rolls are good too, but if you’re after an affordable dinner, you should stick to the regular maki. You could come here with a group of friends, order a bunch of rolls and leave £25 lighter, but the dim lighting and intimate sunken seats make it a perfect midweek date night situation. If you manage to score the window seat then you’re not going to want to leave because you’ll be enjoying the excellent £9 soft shell crab maki, while watching the Soho bustle from the best seats in the house. And if whoever you’re with isn’t into sushi, they also serve ramen noodles, donburi, and robata skewers.
