Loved it. Food was cooked to perfection
The food was delicious, my only issue was that they served our food at slightly different times and felt a little rushed between starters and mains. Otherwise food was incredible and they clearly read the note on my booking and accommodated accordingly.
Lovely staff, very attentive. Food was amazing and the complimentary Saki was divine!! Would definitely go again
Lovely food and sensible steps are in place for COVID.
Service here is fantastic!!
Great food as always and speedy service.
Has a fantastic dinner - quick service; fab food and choice and great cocktails and everything was delicious and tasty. Miso aubergine and prawn tempura rolls were stand out! Much buzzy atmosphere and cool and funky inside. Nice cocktails and reasonable too!
Amazing food and service.
Booked this restaurant for a friends leaving gathering, nice food lovely ambience nice cocktails. We ordered sushi which came with fish eggs but it wasn’t specified on the menu but this was changed straight away.
Third time back and it gets better every time food is unbelievable..
Good random stop for a tummy filling, overpriced starters. Stick to a big plate. Great cocktails.
Wasn't as nice as we expected, was quite bland.
Portions were bang on, just wasnt up to par.
Drinks selection was rubbish, the service varied from excellent to bad
The food is so good, specially the buns (you must try the portobello mushroom bun!)
Great service and lovely food! Highly recommend the fried squid and fried chicken buns!
Excellent food and service with good ambience . Great all around
Amazing as always. Great atmosphere and food with very attentive staff.
Food outstanding. Refills are often. It was fantastic.
We did the tasting menu which is amazing, very tasty I definitely recommend this place. At times I felt a bit rushed so I asked for ten minutes just to slow the pace a bit but they didn’t mind at all.
Lovely night here, food was amazing & service was excellent.
Would highly recommended the lamb shank... was to die for.
Lovely food, good selection and pretty filling. Expensive for what you get but service was lovely. Ambience a little strange but not their fault... dining during a pandemic
2nd visit and both times amazing, will be back!!!!
Slightly pricey but could portion sizes so the value is still decent
An amazing place, it is one of the best Japanese restaurants I’ve been to in london
Dear Harry, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this amazing review. We are so grateful for your kind words. We're looking forward to seeing you again.
Great service and amazing food, will definitely be back
This review made our day!
Felt rushed. We asked specifically for the waiter to slow down the rapid pace of food being served to us and not less than 3 minutes later, our next dish was brought to our table. Plates were cleared in under an hour. Staff were friendly but didn't know much about the food. Food was fine, but not worth the money.
Dear Daniel, Thank you for posting a review and we’re sorry to hear that your experience was not of the quality you expected. If you wish to book in the future, we have our Express Menu available every day until 19:00 and after 22:00, which will help to smooth the service of your table. We do encourage our staff to let the customer know that the food comes out when it's ready, we're sorry you weren't informed about this, the next time we will ensure that you are told.
Delicious food with an excellent menu. So full we couldn’t have desert. Great vegetarian options as well!
Slightly rushed service. Mediocre food
Great experience thanks to our waitress, Hi. Nice cocktails .
Do not recommend the piglet belly.
Well worth the three and a half month lockdown wait.
The staff were really good to us and the sushi, flesh and buns were outstanding as usual. I’ll be back, highly recommended.
Love this place. Outstanding food and service. Sunday buffet is amazing value. The bao buns and chicken wings are the absolute best!
2nd time coming here and honestly my fave place to have brunch would definitely recommend to anyone. Great value for money too
