Good creative cooking but poor service, pretentious atmosphere, and some fairly crass clients (wearing over-sized gold jewellry while hawking spit into a handkerchief repeatedly at dinner)

This was my third time dining here over the last couple of months. We were late arriving but had called ahead and they were very accommodating. Went for a birthday treat. Food was great as usual and service fantastic. Cocktails were a little slow to come out but they were absolutely delicious so can’t really complain. Complimentary dessert and photo given for my birthday which was a lovely touch.

The best Japanese food experience ever had in a long time. My friends took me out to celebrate my recent wedding engagement, Ginza Onodera went the extra mile taking a picture of us and printed it on a card with their congratulations. Afternoon tea was superb with excellent tasty food. I will definitely come back.

Wonderful pre-theatre dinner in a beautifully designed restaurant with a sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere, including two exotic cocktails - really tasty starters including tuna tartare with crispy rice, where the tuna just melted - two excellent main courses of Salmon teppanyaki with a delicious sauce and tender Yuzu baby chicken. Superb attentive but not overbearing service throughout, topped off with some complimentary ice cream in rice paper on a lovely slate platter with Happy Birthday piped on it to celebrate my wife's birthday - a lovely touch, much appreciated! We shall be back for plenty more...

This was my first experience of Kobe beef. It was divine and well worth the £100 supplement. It had a unique taste which was superior to my wife's fillet. Overall, a super meal from the Teppan Yaki set menu. It was great to see the fireball ice cream back making a return, too.

Staff molto preparato, attento e gentilissimo. Abbiamo optato per cenare al bancone del teppanyaky. Lo chef ha fatto uno show piacevole anche se ai è limitato a cucinare. In altri posti lo chef diverte con evoluzioni durante la cottura.

Due pecche sono che il locale era vuoto e che secondo me il prezzo è elevato per le porzioni servite.

Quattro cocktail (fatti bene), due bicchieri di vino, un’aragosta, 3 king prawn, un filetto, riso, 6 tempura prawn e 6 rolls, gelato e abbiamo speso 350 Eur.

This restaurant was such a good surprise in so many levels. The service was excellent, every single member from staff was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was great, with background music not too loud, decoration very minimalistic and yet somehow cozy. The food was superb. I can't recommend enough the dry aged Scottish ribeye and the Black cod croquettes. We'll definitely go back!

My husband is a huge fan of Teppan Yaki so we booked the Utage tasting menu for his 31st Birthday and it was fantastic. The quality of the food was amazing and the ambience very relaxed. The restaurant made a lovely Happy Birthday plate for dessert and they took a photo of us and put inside a thank you card which was a lovely surprise touch. It’s a high end restaurant with prices to match but it’s well worth the money!

We were immediately welcomed on arrival, nothing was too much trouble, the menu was explained to us - and how to eat some of it! As it was our joint birthday, they wrote a birthday message on a slate server with chocolate and arranged it with ice cream and fruit which was delicious, took our photo and popped that into a signed birthday card - a lovely touch!

Fabulous meal with absolutely delicious food, great service and really wonderful attention from all the staff from the welcome at the door, from the lovely chefs and all the attentive, friendly waiting staff. We simply couldn’t have had a better celebration for the birthdays of our twins who love this restaurant soooo much, they asked for this visit as their main birthday present. Thank you Ginza Onodera. You all gave us a really incredible day to remember

Been to Ginza Onodera two other times before this and enjoyed the time there. However, this time, the dining experience was not as nice as before. The food wasn't as flavourful as before which was a shame and service was slow (main course came out 30 mins after we finished our starters...) It was quite noisy that day as well... not sure if I would go back... :S

I was quite disappointed with the standard of service firstly because I ordered a lunch menu when booking the table yet the staff did not seem to be informed of this and did not offer any apology. This also happened the last time I was here. In addition, the waiter seemed unaware of the names of the dishes they were serving, frequently getting the names wrong, as well as putting their thumbs into the plate when bringing it out.
The food was excellent so it is a disappointment that the service is letting this restaurant down.

Onodera is probably the most authentic Japanese restaurant in London from Japanese point of view. I would highly recommend anyone to go there if you want to try real Japanese food. Service was also excellent complete attention to details in true Japanese "Omotenashi" spirit. Unless you have a very specific dietary requirement I'd suggest to go for one of the set menu. My recommendation is AOI menu which you can sample mushroom Dobin-Mushi.
Restaurant manager was also brilliant looking after us. He took a picture of us and printed out on a card to celebrate my friend's birthday. Also I was surprised with their carefully selected wine list. I'm really looking forward to going back there.
