Love it here!!! - Edit

Bustling, loud and full of all kinds of tasty treats, the Japan Centre is a feast for the senses. It's definitely not the place to come for a quiet lesiurely meal but if you are happy to squeeze in and munch on yummy tofu whilst people watching and listening then it is well worth a visit.

Pros: Good value for money, Tasty food

Great food and location - Edit

Really enjoy their spicy tofu eggplant dish with rice.. Fast serving and friendly staffs.. The only down side is I think there could be more vegan selections.

Wide range of delicious vegan takeaway options - Edit

I've been coming to the Japan Centre for many years (following it loyally from two previous addresses) and there are now more vegan takeaway options than ever before!

For lunch today (16/04/17), we had sushi rolls with avocado/sesame, tempura vegetable, tempura pumpkin, spicy tofu, inari pouches (sticky rice inside sweet fried tofu pouches), spinach with a delicious sesame dressing, carrot salad with pink grapefruit, cucumber, tomato and coriander, and a GF/vegan flaxseed and sesame brownie. Not super cheap at about £14 each, but it was delicious, super-fresh and very moreish!

You can also buy hot vegetable tempura and marinated tofu skewer things to eat in. There are a few tables but it's a supermarket more than a restaurant so be prepared to take food away if yoh want a leisurely meal.

Loads of vegan-friendly fresh, dried and frozen ingredients, including interesting Japanese fruit and vegetables (amazing mushroom selection!), wide range of tofu, miso, seaweed, vinegars, sauces, teas... The bakery/cake/confectionery section is the only area you might struggle to find a vegan option. The rest is a treasure trove! Itadakimasu! (Bon appétit!)

Love those veggie gyoza! - Edit

This a great place for a lot of "hard-to-find"ingredients (especially for any other Kind-Lifers out there). Brown rice mochi, dried seaweeds, umeboshi vinegar, fresh and frozen lotus root, kabocha and burdock, fresh daikon, a nice range of tofu (but not all organic so read labels carefully). Yummy vegan-friendly takeaway items too!

Cons: Some fish and meat on display
