We ate at Inamo on a Saturday early evening, 6.30 booking and it was fairly busy already which we saw as a good sign. We were seated fairly quickly and the waitress came and told us how it all worked.
No one has a name badge and no one told us their name, so not sure how many of the reviews have specific names. The interactive menu felt fun at first but then got a bit annoying as you couldn't just flick and read, you had to navigate back to the main menu to then get to the next bit so it was a little fiddly.
The food choices are interesting. The sushi was good but the Tapas was very expensive and when the food came, we thought they were very over priced. The chicken satay was dry and cold from sitting out although tasty and a small portion for over £10. The beef tataki and salmon were very tasty also but again quite expensive.
The most disappointing yet tastiest dish was the popcorn prawns. The images were of a decent portion of bite size prawns, but when they came the size of the portion made us all laugh. It was really very small for the price but again very tasty.

So were were done in less than an hour, spent nearly £110 for 4 of us which had one beer, 3 small plates and two large, oh and a rice. We left hungry. Way too expensive for what it is and the interactive system sure needs updating. The service was good, all the waiting staff were friendly but the idea is fun but delivery needs work.

Found the experience over rated.
Food was mediocre at best, well apart from the cheapest item we brought, which was the octopus.
Other then that I wouldn’t recommend it.
The sweet and sour chicken was full of yellow peppers and a minimal amount of chicken.
The lollipop chicken was terrible, lightly breaded chicken wings with sweet chilli sauce on top.
I don’t know what dishes they pride themselves on but the tapas menu is definitely not a part of it.
I could go through the rest of the items we ordered but I’d probably run out of space.
For the price we paid I would have been more satisfied at my local oriental takeaway shop of a quarter of the price.
A restaurant like this shouldn’t even dare ask for service charge, all they do is bring food to your table, they don’t take your order as it all done on the interactive table, so the one job that we needed was to bring forks and somehow this task took longer then necessary.
Overall this was not worth my time or money!
Working in this industry aswell probably made me more critical but I wasn’t impressed with the overall experience.

Food was great and very fresh tasting. Bit on the pricey side, but understandable given location. My main issue with Inamo is the price of drinks. Unnecessarily expensive, no need to have such a high margin on the drinks... The fact there is a 30p difference in nce between a pint of beer and a 330ml bottle says it all. Good experience, wouldn't go again purely for pricing... Unless I win lottery

Inamo - Soho
Responded on 1 September 2020

Thanks for your feedback - delighted you like the food - sorry you feel the drinks are not great value, the difference in the beer is due to the price received from suppliers. Sorry you feel that way but the price is also benchmarked versus other local operators.

Average food, high price! Whilst the interactive aspect was cool, and quite fun, it wasn’t particularly up to date. If you consider the amount they charge for food (£16 for some tasty, but greasy noodles, £10 for some aubergine.. maybe more?) it’s definitely NOT worth a visit. They should modernise their decor, technology and food.

Despite the reduced menu good vegetarian options and the novelty of ordering at your table on this projected screen made the visit quite fun and enjoyable! However, the service was very poor. We were sat down and informed that kitchen closes in 45 mins, but then had to wait 10-15 mins for someone to activate our places and let us know how ordering works. We received food before we received our plates and cutlery and components of dishes had sauces missing. The restaurant was at half capacity but service seemed to run at half of that... its a shame really as by removing the element of ordering for wait staff you’d think they’d speed up other tasks. Food was good though!

We booked the table online and was disappointed with the service and ambiance as we were seated downstairs where the lighting was poor and made it difficult to read the allergen menu. Which could be fatal for allergy sufferers. We all were surprised as there was plenty of seating upstairs and we were the only ones seated downstairs. When asked why the lady replied and said we could only sit upstairs for an hour. This is not what’s stated on your website and seemed unfair. You should make this clear on your website and treat everyone fairly.

Also we asked the waitress to check with the chef if two dishes contained dairy and the chef said it didn’t, however the allergen menu showed it did. We asked the waitress to check again as we pointed it out on the menu. She checked again with the chef and the chef said to go with the menu. This is very alarming that the chef didn’t know especially considering the increase in allergies since the recent loss of young lives.

The service charge was far too high for the service we received, the food was tasty but over priced for what you get. Finally they need to treat everyone fairly and offer the options on where parties can be seated.

Went with a family 2 adults 2 kids for a birthday. The restaurant is a little shabby and feels a bit 1980s along with the technology - the table toptouch imaging systems are incredible fun for a family to be able to pick anything of the menu and it arrives minutes later. You can play games watch the kitchen make the food even change the table cloth! The graphics are very much dated and a bit clunky but an awful lot of fun. The food is ok - very average Japanese food but excellent fast service and friendly staff. Also very expensive at £50 head including alcohol but worth a visit for the unique experience

Great novelty and staff were friendly and courteous.

The food tasted good but be warned - some of the pictures on the interactive table of the meals were not representative of the dish. Pork belly picture, for example, far bigger than the actual dish.

2 adults and a small appetite 12 year old with no alcohol - nearly £120. Felt a little pricey for what we actually ate. We ordered mostly vegetarian dishes.

If bill was £30 less than I would recommend but not worth the money to return. Possibly worth it as a one off novelty.
