The food is excellent, well capable of competing with all of the japenese restaurants myself and my partner go to in Soho, in fact because Edo is smaller than some of the wagamama style eateries, i think the food is higher qaulity and the service is quicker.
I agree the ambience has been improved by lowering the lighting and adding blinds, but apart from that everything else is great.
I have been working my way through the menu, and so far i can say the bento boxes are value for money and filling, also the crab and shrimp dumplings are fab, the sushi is very fresh, and the tempura is just right, not greasy or stodgy at all.. all in all I am a very Happy young lady indeed.

But I wish they'd turn off all the stinky air freshners they've got plugged in! And maybe switch the air con down a notch or two. It makes it feel too cold and clinical, especially with the relentless pong from the plug-ins.
Apart from that, super. I love going there for the Bento boxes and some lovely Ramen.

My first time eating real Japanese food after years as a Chinese food addict and occasional sushi fiend - and it was a very pleasant experience.
I was a bit worried that the tempura would be a sodden mass of fat, but the seafood was perfectly cooked in a light ungreasy batter. Strange to get a side salad complete with mayo alongside my beef teriyaki though!
Got my eye on a Bento box next time...

We (The Crystal Palace Community Association) held an event last week.
160 people bought tickets to attend a japanese meal in a beautiful house. We asked Edo if we could use their rice cookers as we needed such a huge amount of rice. When we explained that it was in aid of the local community association, they agreed. Then they offered to cook a few dishes for us. In the end they came to the house, supplied staff and cooked and served the most amazing food for everyone. NO CHARGE!!!
I really think they should be supported and welcomed as a brilliant addition to our community. We are going to eat there as often as possible; not much of a sacrifice considering how fantastic the food is and how lovely the owners are!

They seem to have sorted out some of the problems people have mentioned before– lighting much improved, it was toasty warm and no air fresheners!.
The order got a bit muddled up, but they sorted it out, and all the food was good. We had the crab and prawn dumplings which have been recommended and they were best thing we ate. I’d also recommend the sesame ice-cream –don’t be put off by the fact it is grey!!
However, it wasn’t amongst the best Japanese I’ve had in London, and nor was it amongst the cheapest, so although everything was fine I’ll probably stick to getting my sushi fix elsewhere.

Hopefully it's going to be part of the community for years to come...
