Harajuku Kitchen Tollcross, Edinburgh

Grown out of a street food business, Harajuku Kitchen is an informal and sunny Japanese restaurant. The sushi and sashimi may be the stars but the other sections of the menu have much to recommend. The noodle soups and noodle stir fries are always popular while others prefer dishes like the teriyaki chicken; panko-breaded pork with Japanese curry or the mixed tempura. The popcorn flavoured green tea is fun.
