Tanakatsu is a simple diner near Angel specialising in katsu, teriyaki and sushi, however we reckon your best bet here is to stick to the katsu. Pretty much every katsu option you might want here is priced at £12.50, and although sizes are more than big enough for one, you should definitely consider a side of chicken kara-age. And a chocolate mochi for dessert.
