I ordered the prawn tempura for starter it was very flavourless. For mains I ordered the black cod which again had no flavour, it was not cooked properly at all so I mentioned it to the waiter he gave me a lot of excuses and pretty much forced me to eat it, I thought that was rather rude and not professional at all. He was pretty much saying I was lying that it was uncooked and have absolutely no flavour.

Would not recommend at all. Poor service and poor quality of food.

The food is so good and the service they provide is decent.
The only things that I found out is the table is too small. If you planning to get 2 lava meal, basically the table is full and you can’t put more stuff. But it just a little thing that won’t affect much.

We came here on weds evening for my boyfriends birthday and enjoyed it thoroughly. The service was attentive and food was excellent, so fresh and full of flavour. We always enjoy coming here when we are in London and this time was just as special, especially with the delicious birthday cheesecake! Thank you so much

We had a lovely meal the food was great quality and tasty, some issues with them holding the steak dish and then when it arrived the stone had cooled and wasnt great for cooking. Also chips and chicken were cool too. Would try again but service could have been improved

かなり空いているのになかなか注文をとりに来ない。料理はまずまずなのにもったいない。
全くサービスなんて受けていないのに勝手にサービス料12.5%とるのはほとんど違法ではないか。

The sashimi platter we ordered was poor in portions and of average quality, staff pleasant but no urgency, steak good but whole place was full of smoke from cooking. Bill was overpriced for the quality of food provided.

Very slow service! We were told at time of arrival that we only have our table for 2 hrs. It took about 20min for someone to come and take our order. We ordered a few pieces of sushi and yakiniku. Waited another 30min for our sushi&drinks. Took them 1 hour to bring the yakiniku so that left us only 25min to eat the yakiniku set:( The yakiniku plate turned completely cold after about 10min so had to change the plate in the middle of eating.

Overall very bad experience. They definitely need to have more staff! Would not come on a Saturday night again.

Not a very good choice of vegetarian food. Many of the options seemed to be a variation on the same ingredients cooked in a slightly different manner. Service was also a bit slow and given only half the restaurant was full, it appeared a bit unattentive. That being said, my friend really enjoyed the hot stone beef.

Service was terrible on multiple fronts. They got our order wrong 4 separate times, took 35 minutes to even take our drink order although we still had to vacate table within the 2 hour slot. They served us steaks without confirming how we wanted them cooked. Not remotely apologetic for the long delays.

Good food just a shame about the service.

My kids love Japanese cuisine and we went to Sakagura at lunchtime on a Saturday to celebrate end of school exams for one and birthday for the other. The booth we were sitting in was near the door and it was absolutely freezing every time someone was going in or out of the place....
The service was unhelpful and slow. No sign of explaining the difference between dishes nor to tell us if we were ordering too much or too little.
The sushi rolls were ok, nothing special.
The robata food was excellent but the hot stone became cold soon enough that we did not manage to cook all the food we ordered.... again, no suggestions, recommendations nor help from the waiters.
It took another half an hour before I started calling to get the dessert menu and eventually, after almost three hours, we managed to pay an astronomically high bill and leave....
Definitely won’t go back any time soon.

Slow to take drink orders, and glasses were empty for some time before additional drinks were offered. Nigiri was excellent but California roll was average. Overall, expensive for what it is.

Lived it! Amazing food and sitting in the booth was brilliant! We went for bottomless brunch and had to call the staff often to refill our glasses which was annoying but other than that the service was great and the staff were really well informed with what was in their food as well as being so wonderfully accommodating to my gluten intolerance:) I had the most brillaint time and so did my date! We loved the raindrop umeshu cake and the chilled saki glass boats on ice 😍😍😍 such a great day out, we stayed for hours!

We just went for an early lunch before a shopping trip. It was the perfect venue for this. We had excellent service and you can order almost as you go along. We chose some starters and in the end had had enough to eat so never got to try the sushi or sashimi. We had edamame, crispy chicken karagge, pork gyoza, beef teriyaki and duck teriyaki. It was all delicious.....I probably wouldn’t get the chicken again though as it was very filling and I wish I had left room for the sashimi! We had just one alcoholic drink each (glass of wine and a G & T) and the bill was £84....which I thought was OK for London. I would definitely go again for lunch. It is in a great location as well in Heddon Street.

It is overpriced. You can get the same quality of food in other restaurants. I wasn’t happy with the service with this high price paying.

We were lucky to get a table on New Year's eve. The food was really average, the yakitori was drenched instead of being glazed with the sauce. Even the fish carpaccio was overwhelmed with ponzu which was a real shame. The sashimi was reasonably fresh. I think if you stick to the self cook steak, it would be a safer bet as you are in control of the doneness and the seasoning. The highlight of the evening was the sake (very extensive menu) and the edamame beans, which were not overcooked. Service was impeccable, first hand witnessing manager dealing with the table next to ours with some seriously unbelievable complaints such as, "There is a bone in my fish."
