Itsu started off as a kaiten sushi (or conveyer belt sushi) restaurant in Chelsea in 1997 and has since opened 2 more restaurants and 25 takeaway shops in London. The food going around on the conveyor belts in their restaurants is mostly western style sushi and Japanese dishes with other asian fusion dishes thrown in such as their hoi sin duck cystal rolls and vietnamese chilli prawns. They also serve hot food which can be ordered from the menu as well as bento boxes. I would say that the food in Itsu is average and I generally wouldn’t choose to dine there however their creme brulee is so good that it is the one thing that draws me there.
I however tend to frequent the Itsu takeaway shops as it is a good place to grab a quick and healthy lunch or mid-afternoon snack. Their takeaway shops serve sushi sets, salad sets and donburi (rice bowls) as well as a good selection of drinks, snacks and frozen yoghurts. The shops also have seating areas if you don’t fancy eating outside or at work.
