chicken katsu curry from Tsuru Sushi

chicken katsu curry from Tsuru Sushi

Tsuru is the small sister restaurant chain of ramen favourite Tonkotsu (who also do a great katsu curry at their Bankside branch), and have an ambitious motto: "seeking to provide the best katsu curry and affordable sushi in London".

We can certainly attest to the former being a very tasty meal.

Tsuru's katsu curry sauce has 16 ingredients, is cooked for eight hours, and the chicken coating is light and crunchy. We could have perhaps done with a little more rice for maximum sauce absorption. 

The chicken katsu (breast or thigh), ground beef, and vegetable katsu, are all £6.40. They also sometimes do a pork one which is a little more at £7.50.

All food is served in box, but you're more than welcome to eat it in, enjoy their outdoor seating, or take it back to the office. If so, expect envious stares.
