Kappa is a small Japanese restaurant situated minutes away from the Earl’s court tube station. As you pass it by, nothing may grab your attention except for some professional food photos next to its menu. When you walk in, you find yourself in a rather simple interior. A combination of these factors, for some of us, may not be an ideal trigger to chose this place for a meal. And this may be a serious miss. The owner is a Korean-born sushi chef and there is a clear Korean influence on some of the dishes. All seafood comes very fresh and some of the traditional Japanese dishes are served in a new creative way which pleasantly surprises your pallet. The selection of fresh fish is impressive including sea urchin. Besides nigiri, sashimi & rolls, you have a wide variety of starters (both warm & cold) including traditional udon & soba noodle dishes; grilled fish, meat & vegetables plates.  Some of the signature dishes include grilled scallops with gochujang (a Korean spicy bean paste). A temaki containing stir-fried pork belly, rice and the well-loved Korean condiment kimchi. Desert menu is very small & primarily focuses on offering ice creams. Green tea is always served in abundance and is of good quality.

So, if you like Japanese food and you are looking for sustainable quality, this is a place to come. And such things as interior do become secondary if you have friends to share this special feast with you.
