Japanese café situated in trendy Exmouth Market. Café Necco is a cute little place hidden away from the hustle and bustle of East London. The café is probably not kitted out to be serving the range of food that it offers which is apparent when dishes come out. We ordered sushi for starter which was tasty but the rice a little over done and dry. For main course we ordered katsu curry which are poured out of a somewhat dubious looking hot pot. Again the rice is stodgy and the curry sauce is rich but lacks any real flavour.
The service is shy, slow and inefficient. The Japanese staff look very young and it shows in their inexperience. They also talk so quietly I ended up shouting in a hopeless attempt to increase their volume.
Don’t get me started on the bathroom, which is a small disabled toilet decorated with lots of lace curtains – rather like a granny’s bedroom. Very odd. The décor leaves nothing to the imagination – all very plain and simple.
We have to say they serve a great selection of cakes but we would recommend sticking to the sweet offering. Exmouth market is not short of great restaurants so you won’t go hungry. Sex Drugs and Bacon Rolls gives this place:
