Ever since Gerry quit the Spice Girls we’ve been bitter people. That’s why when anyone describes anywhere as ‘intimate’ all we hear is that getting a seat will be a nightmare, and there’ll probably be some sad Yankee candle on your matchbox table. Kurumaya is an intimate sushi spot in the City, but luckily for you and our cold, cold hearts, none of the above is true of this affordable Japanese restaurant. Yes, it is pretty tiny but they’ll do their best to find space for you, and worst comes to worst, you can get all of the sushi to takeaway from their shop counter. We’d also recommend doubling your order and going in on the chicken katsu curry too - we’re pretty sure that’s what 2 Becomes 1 was about anyway.
