New Fujiyama, SW9

Fantastic value Japanese hidden in Brixton

“New Fujiyama is more than a great place to eat. It’s a place which takes on a different mood during the day and night. Come with friends, family and colleagues for a light lunchtime treat in a quiet cul-de-sac hidden away from the hussle and bussle. Visit us at night and enjoy the transformation of a vibrant, energetic place to eat brimming with atmosphere.”

Antonia and I were going to see Sigur Ros at Brixton Academy and needed somewhere to eat beforehand. My brother used to live in Brixton so he recommended a couple of places. Satay Bar, which has a great range of Malay, Indonesian and Thai dishes, obviously including a wide range of Satay and New Fujiyama, a busy, authentic canteen style Japanese restaurant tucked away behind the market.

We opted for New Fujiyama and weren’t disappointed. We used to live in Brighton and were regulars of a similar, small Japanese restaurant there called Pompoko so it’s nice to find an equivalent in London. Fujiyama has a pretty large menu, including a great range of Sushi and Sashimi. We ordered the Alaskan Rolls, consisting of fresh Salmon and avocado filling, rolled in masago, which at £4.60 for 8 pieces is a bargain. We had some Ebi Gyoza as well, which I highly recommend, they were beautifully crisp and absolutely packed with tiger prawn.

The mains we had were good, but I’d almost recommend just ordering a load of sushi and sides instead. Having spent some time in Japan, I can say my Amai Seafood was authentic, if a little oily and Antonia’s Yakitori Don was really good value at £6.95 considering it comes with a Miso soup and pickles.

Very good quality and value for money. Plenty of dishes on the menu I’d like to try, like the Yasai Katsu Curry - deep fried vegetables including sweet potatoes, courgettes and red peppers coated in breadcrumbs accompanied by a mild curry sauce garnished with lettuce and pickles, served on a bed of rice. This would be a great spot for a long lunch with some Sushi, Gyoza and Miso soup.
