London's little known Japanese gems

I'm looking for a small, local Japanese restaurant, anywhere in London, with amazing, traditional Japanese food. In New York there are a wealth of late-night quiet Japanese places where you can get more than just sushi, sashimi, tempura, rolls and so on. The kind of place it seems improper to laugh loudly, and one must be careful with one's use of wasabi. Does London have anything similar? [more inside]

Cheap as Cups

My housemate wants to drink from charming vintage teacups. Unfortunately, so does everyone else in East London, so round here they tend to only show up in cutesy-hipster shops at ridiculously inflated prices. Is there anywhere in London where one can still find them without the trend premium? [more inside]

Is it possible to get tickets for the Arsenal Shakhtar versus Donetsk game on October 19 at Emirates Stadium? I'll be in London for a few days around then and noticed the fixture.

Suggestions for low-key things to do in London?

I'm going to be in London on business for a week, and I may wind up with a couple of afternoons to myself. I don't have a burning need to do lots of sight-seeing while I'm there -- I'll probably be quite jetlagged during that free time, since it will occur at the beginning of my trip -- but I'd love any suggestions of absolute must-sees, quiet spots where it would be nice to sit and read, or lovely bookstores or coffee (tea?) shops.

Favorite groups/volunteering opportunities/events venues in London?

Casual dinner in London RIGHT NOW - where?

It's 23:00 / 11:00PM. I'm in London, near St. Pauls. Where can I eat right now? Nothing fancy, just something to get a decent late casual dinner. Takeaway or delivery is fine (or even preferred), and totally flexible on cuisine. A good curry or Kebab shop would be idea. I don't mind taking a taxi or the tube, but I don't want to be out all night. Any ideas?

What should I see at London Open House

I'm overwhelmed by the possibilities of Open House London, which sees hundreds of usually inaccessible buildings thrown open to the public. What are the can't-miss places that are worth queuing for?

Is it possible to get tickets for a cricket match at The Oval in London?

I really want to get two tickets to the third day of the third test between England and Pakistan at the Oval (in London). The only tickets on public sale are in the premium section at £100ish each. Any cricket fans know if there's likely to be another release of tickets nearer the time, or whether there's any other legitimate avenue for buying tickets?
