The words ‘sushi’ and ‘South Kensington’ may not invoke emotions of excitement or desire for anyone not from South Kensington, but if you so happen to be in the neighbourhood, Dozo is a great option. The sushi is good quality, and the rolls are fun. Be warned that it gets packed at lunchtime with all the international students and the downstairs section of the restaurant has awkward sunk in seating that can be problematic to get into if you’ve only experienced yoga by Googling the word ‘yoga’.
