Ikkyu is located in a Tottenham Court Road basement, the discreet entrance to which is squeezed between a Benjy's and The Church of Scientology.
This is a proper pukkha Japanese restaurant - none of your Yo Sushi! nonsense. Frode has his Japanese lessons on his iPod now. Another good excuse for me getting one I guess. He told me what he could about his interesting meeting with Martin King, predictive text innovator from T9.
The lunch menus at Ikkyu are priced reasonably and are served with rice, miso soup and pickles. To start we shared a California roll then Frode had the grilled salmon while I chose the mackerel. It was cooked to perfection and appeared to have near limitless amounts of edible bits.
