Walking past Zaibatsu, you probably wouldn’t realise it’s one of the best sushi spots in Greenwich—and south London. The space is tiny, the seats are uncomfortable, the lighting is ghastly, and the service is often curt. But the food is truly phenomenal. There’s a huge menu of Japanese dishes but the sushi and sashimi are the main draw: fresh, expertly prepared, and excellent-value. The five-kind sashimi platter, for instance, costs less than £20 and features slivers of high-quality tuna, scallop, salmon, octopus, and sea bass all served at body temperature rather than fridge-cold. The inside out rolls are another must-order, particularly the snow crab and mango, as is the sweet, sticky nasu goma (grilled aubergine) caked in sesame paste. Ideally order them to come last, in place of one of the comparatively lacklustre desserts.
