Akira 1000x543

Between Thursday 21 and Saturday 23 November, AKIRA restaurant will be serving bowls of lunchtime katsu curry for take away on the ground floor of Japan House London for just £5.

Warm-up with a choice of chicken katsu curry or vegan curry (vegetable curry with edamame beans) to takeaway, designed by chef Shimizu Akira. Akira is the Executive Chef and owner of his namesake restaurant at Japan House and is critically acclaimed in both the UK and Japan.

The generous portions are priced at just £5 each for this limited-run pop-up, which will take place on each of the three dates between 12:00-16:00, or until portions sell out.

Both dishes are served in environmentally friendly paper bowls with lids, ideal for taking away without spillages.

The katsu curry pop-up will be based at The Stand café counter, on the first floor of Japan House just inside the main entrance. Due to the pop-up nature of the event, the curry bar will be running on a cash-only basis. ATMs can be found located just 1 minutes’ walk from Japan House.

This event will coincide with a free tasting of Takara MIO sparkling sake tasting at The Shop. Learn more about Japanese sake on our Story.
