Sapporo Ichiban – Japanese and sushi in Catford

Update Dec 2013:
Nearly three years on since LardButty first reviewed Sapporo, Catford has more choice when it comes to eating out and good pubs. That said, Sapporo is still one of the best restaurants in the area.

We ate here again recently: the quality of the fish was consistently high and oh so very tasty that Sapporo has been upgraded in the LardButty index from 3.5 to 4 / 5. The king prawn udon noodles and eel nigiri are particularly amazing.

January 2011: There are very few reasons to visit Catford – Sapporo Ichiban is the main one.

Don’t be deterred by the window display filled with plastic sushi and noodles. Once through the door there’s a lovely indoor fish pond full of colourful fish and the restaurant interior is clean, spacious and bright.

Serving Japanese and Asian food, the menu offers a wide range of sushi, sashimi, rolls, bento boxes, dons, noodles and main courses. On our latest visit here the other day we shared a sushi and sashimi platter for two – it didn’t disappoint.
