Kampachi Troika serves up a suitably swish setting, friendly attentive service and a succinct traditional menu flawlessly executed.
The menu may not have the overwhelming extent so popular at many Japanese restaurants, but what it does feature, it does well.
• We recommend the temaki, aka handrolls, that come with crisp seaweed that crackle at a bite, packed with fresh generous fillings and will not fall apart in your hands.
• For a full indulgence, opt for the sashimi moriwase or the six-course sushi kaiseki.
• Ditch the ubiquitous udon and soba, and savour the inaniwa udon instead. These skinny silky smooth noodles are stretched by hand and delicious served with your choice of beef, chicken or seafood.
