Even time-honoured Ealingites would be forgiven for not having stumbled across this authentic Japanese Restaurant. Hidden away in Hotel 55 near North Ealing Station, don’t let its busy location put you off… as soon as you’re through the doors the A406 will be a distant memory. Leaving you to focus on the varied menu and daily specials, complimented by a range of Japanese drinks including colourful cocktails. All topped off with a private zen-style garden if the weather favours your visit! A true hidden gem that needs to be remembered.
Kiraku’s popularity is clear by the fact there is rarely an empty table. Their menu is based on izakaya-style dining, which offers a wide range of hot and cold foods, including zensai (traditional appetisers), agemono (deep-fried), yakimono (grilled & pan-fried), kushiyaki (skewers), noodles, sushi and sashimi dishes. As you’d expect from an authentic restaurant, Kiriku serves many dishes you’d never find on a high-street chain’s menu (you know the ones we mean). So make sure you move away from the old favourites and try something new! Booking in advance highly recommended.
