Abeno Too - Leicester Square, London

Abeno TooAbeno Too is a small Japanese restaurant just off Charing Cross Road at Leicester Square. The cooking area is in the centre of the restaurant, with a large table surrounding it. Smaller tables are arranged along the large window.

The seats double as storage boxes, or are they storage boxes used as seats? You decide. We placed our coats and bags in the boxes and then sat at the table. Our waiter/chef for the day cooked our meal on the table in front of us.

I'm not quite sure of all that he put into it, but it was a large mix of pork, seafood, eggs and vegetables cooked together into a pancake. I can only say that it tasted interesting. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't like anything I'd tasted before. The side order of shrimp was tasty.

Our waiter was quite friendly and helpful, though he didn't speak too much English. He helped with suggestions telling us what was good and what we might not have liked.

I would go back and try some of the other dishes they have on order, but mostly because of how friendly the staff are.
