Ginza Kitchen – Review by the Gourmet Boys

This was our first visit to Ginza Kitchen, and on entering we were immediately struck by the welcoming atmosphere, striking decor, and cool vibe.

We were shown straight to our table and were pleased to see that safety procedures, such as masks and screens were in evidence.

The menu has a stunning variety of options, and provides excellent guidance for those trying to shed a few lockdown pounds, as each dish is calorie counted.

After some time deciding (we were tempted by the Matsu Moriawase which offers a huge selection of sushi to share dramatically presented on a boat-shaped platter which we witnessed arriving at another table-and it’s impressive) we decided to share some Seafood Tempura, Edamame, and Spicy Tuna Sushi. The Tempura was a triumph , with crispy featherlight batter surrounding a selection of vegetables and seafood, including squid, soft shell crab and prawns.

We decided we wanted a short break before mains arrived and Ben took us on a tour of the building. Ginza Kitchen spreads over three floors, and can cater for larger parties in traditional Japanese banquet seating in the downstairs area which has some stunning art work on the walls.

The main courses arrived, again beautifully presented. The Tofu Teppan Teriyaki was sizzling hot, with gorgeous crispy triangles of bean curd on a bed of saucy Asian vegetables and a side of rice.

The King prawn teriyaki accompanied by noodles was packed with flavour, topped with huge perfectly cooked prawns.

We finished our meal with some green tea, and a selection of ice cream in vanilla, green tea, mango and coconut flavours.

The wine selection is small, but perfectly formed, and how can you go wrong with the wonderful Porta 6 as your house red? There was also a quirky looking Primitivo on offer, which we will sample next time we visit as we have no doubt we will be back in the very near future, so impressed were we by the ambience, the extensive menu, and the fresh quality ingredients.

Many thanks to Ben and the team for a thoroughly enjoyable evening with delicious food and drink at reasonable prices – and as Ginza Kitchen are continuing with the Eat Out To Help Out offer this month, it really is exceptionally good value.
