Centrally located Japanese restaurant, but as it is on a side road off Leicester Square, is usually not packed with tourists.
The food here is quite good - we had salmon belly marinated in miso (£5+) to start, which was delicious... absolutely juicy and sweet. Just wished the portions were bigger!
For mains, we ordered a black cod hotpot. While the cod itself was very fresh and some of the tastiest cod we've had in London, the hotpot soup lacked any flavour at all. It just tasted like boiled water.
Our other mains, stir fried pork belly, was well prepared and was a sizeable portion too.
We had calpicos to accompany our meals, which at £2.80, were rather a rip-off!
Service in this restaurant was OK but not very good; we witnessed another woman who had ordered sushi and asked for some ginger to go with it; she, and us, were shocked that the restaurant charged for that! Who serves sushi without the holy trio of soy sauce, wasabi, and ginger? The more galling part was the reaction from the waiting staff, who just shrugged their shoulders, not even bothering to call the manager over.
So in all.... decent food, but service and hospitality not up to par, and pricewise some of the dishes looked a bit expensive for the portions. Plus they had the gall to add 10% service charge for not really much!

Pleasant ambience, very good sushi. Had dinner by taking Sushi/Sashimi plate for £18. A little overpriced for the size of the plate, but very good.
Unfortunately at around 10pm somebody took out the garbage, which resulted to a horrible smell. We left 10min later.
But all in all I can recommend it!
Hazuki is a Japanese restaurant outside of China Town in central London. It is close to Charing Cross Tube/Mainline and also Leicester Square.
Hazuki’s is a small restaurant with a intimate downstairs (some might say a bit too close!), an upstairs and if you really press them for it a small private room downstairs.
I have been to Hazuki on many times, for business and pleasure and I’ve found their lunch menu is very good value, quick and tasty. For example as at last month Chicken Katsu, Miso Soup, Pickles and Rice was £7.50 and was plentiful. Top that off with a Crab King Roll (£5) and that’s a great, large meal!
For dinner, there are set menus ranging from £16 to £45 and also a-la-carte. The a-la-carte is a bit over-priced, but I can recommend the £25 and £5 set menu.
Sometimes the serving staff can disappear for a little while, but they are very polite and happy to help. Sadly not all are Japanese and they’re not always able to explain each dish on the menu.
Overall, Hazuki is probably best for a business lunch. Dinner is okay, but can’t compare to for example Donzoko in Soho. I enjoy coming here and there’s a Korean waitress who knows loads about films and so on… Always nice to chat :)
