If you have woken up on Boxing Day feeling rather full after gorging on Christmas dinner, the thought of a traditional English roast this weekend probably couldn’t be further from your mind! With New Year resolutions always packed with thoughts of eating well and staying healthy, you can get a head start during the festive period thanks to Tombo in South Kensington.

Zuma, Roka and Nobu have made Japanese dining in London hugely popular. However, there has always been a gap in the market for a more casual experience than presented by this trio. Enter Tombo, which boasts extremely healthy and top quality dishes that are served in a café style space.

You can create your own menu by selecting your favourite options to make up a full plate as part of a ‘Bento Box’. At this time of year, the no carb option is certainly appealing and you can also make the most of the Sashimi of the day.

However, the Noodle Bowl should probably be your primary choice; this changes on a daily basis and it is served with Chicken, Tofu, Salmon or on its own. During our visit curry was the flavour of the day and it was excellent.

The same can be said for the ambience at Tombo. The restaurant was packed and there were even people queuing to get a seat, which goes to show that Tombo is already being embraced by foodies in London.
