A local favourite right opposite Aldgate East station, Sushinoen isn’t an all-singing all-dancing restaurant, but it is one that covers almost all the bases of Japanese cuisine. The diner setup makes it appropriate for pretty much any casual occasion and the sushi is better than your average. There’s a large selection of always-good sashimi and nigiri, from aburi sake (seared scallop) to tamago (sweet Japanese omelette) as well as maki and temaki - none of which will cost you a fortune. Hot stuff ranges from donburi bowls and yakisoba, to katsu curries, and everything here is pleasing. In fact, it’s just a very pleasant place to be.
