Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Located close to both tram and train, this popular wee diner is turning tables for lunch and dinner six days a week. A substantial menu offers a wide choice of both sushi and main course rice and noodle dishes as well as several set menu and bento combinations for busy diners happy to let the chef decide – the dinner bento selections are particularly good value. The chef’s recommendation of inside out rolls are worth checking out, while unagi rice with miso soup comes in a lacquered box packed with steamed rice, a thick slab of sticky glazed eel and a wok-fried egg on top. You are only allocated an hour and a half for a booking, so this is more a place for a quick lunch or fast feed after hitting the shops than a place to linger, but go with it – the brisk turnaround lends a pleasant buzz and bustle to the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. There are more refined competitors out there for sure, but Chizuru Tei is a great bet for a quick, tasty and affordable feed.
