iPhone Bites: Tokyo Diner

If you're ever stuck for a decent place in Chinatown for some cheap but delicious Japanese food, you could do worse than this charming little place situated on the corner of Newport Place and Little Newport Street. Tokyo Diner prides itself on being authentically Japanese, and even follows the age old tradition of not accepting service charge. The menu, including photos for the uninitiated, is kept short but varied with prices for a Salmon Don (shown here) for £10.00, to the more hefty Bento Boxes for £12.00 onwards. Beers are served in cans at sub £2.00, or you could stick to the Green Tea which is served free . The staff are efficient but polite which is a shame as this is the kind of service I wouldn't mind paying extra for.
