Great authentic tasty and healthy Japanese food and lovely staff. I recommend the Lagu Special udon soup and prawn dumplings. Both were great. Go, go!

Great chicken karaage with brown rice!! Good service, quiet place, we really enjoyed it! Better for lunch than for diner. We will definitely come back.

Absolutely loved it there! So quiet and relaxing from the chaotic London cafés. Great, accurate service and very nice beverages (and I'm Italian, so quite picky with coffee). Great for some time in a homely environment.

A very nice little local restaurant with good food. Quality wasn't as high as some Japanese restaurants and service was a little slow at times, so overall it felt expensive relative to the quality although not too bad value. Food sometimes tasted better than it looked; chicken kara age didn't look especially appetising but tasted good. Udon noodles in curry with prawn katsu was very good. Wouldn't rush back, but Lagu would certainly 'do the job' if I found myself fancying Japanese!

The staff was consistently very friendly and polite, from my dealings with them over the phone to when we were at the restaurant and were the last ones there! The food was really good, extremely fresh and flavoursome. Not a mainstream Japanese restaurant in that the menu was offering traditional Japanese dishes as opposed to a vast selection of sushi, sashimis and other types of rolls (although all available as part of a dish I think). It was very quiet so great if you fancy an evening out with an intimate vibe but not the best if you want somewhere really lively. I hope to have the opportunity to go back and try more of their menu!

The place is white and bright which I love! I had the curry with the mixture of rice which was fabulous, and I eat a lot but I couldn't finish it. I had the Sencha green tea which came in a delicate glass pot- I love those! As well the matcha latte which was divine! Certainly coming again. I missed out the 6 star rating purely because I dined with a friend and despite not being all that busy I think service was a little slow and I did have to remind someone about my drink I ordered which I tried patiently waiting for. Though, the service is extremely friendly. I would definitely come again :)

The decor was quite quirky and it's a pretty small place, so only a few tables makes it seem busy. The food was tasty. I didn't really enjoy the macha latte, it smelt like pond and tasted a bit better. It was also a little more expensive than I had anticipated and so, I ended spending a fair bit as rice is considered an extra, which i think is cheeky. But overall, it was an enjoyable experience. The staff were lovely and the temperature was nice.

Very pleasant and friendly Japanese staff to take orders. Clean and bright room. Bathroom is very clean. Food - pork cutlets are slightly strong taste for Japanese but maybe it is suitable for non Japanese. Salmon with avocado Don was excellent. Price is reasonable.

Quaint little place with a great feel of hospitality. And the food is fantastic! More of a cafe than a restaurant, but if you are looking for an quiet place for dinner, it's also great.
