This high-end Japanese restaurant and sushi bar on Beauchamp Place is the Knightsbridge sister of the Chisou over in Hanover Square. Here, there's the same emphasis on traditional Japanese hospitality - expect oshibori (hand towels) presented on arrival, low-key, considered service and a suitably serious approach to the saké selection.
Sushi plays a lead role on a menu filled with authentic Japanese options. Various selections from the chef offer glimpses at an a la carte sushi and sashimi list featuring impressively sourced blue fin fatty tuna, sea urchin, Japanese butter fish, sweet prawn, mackerel, sea bass and belly of salmon - here seared with a blowtorch. Maki rolls are also available.
Elsewhere, the menu ranges from authentic Japanese salads and udon noodle soups to beef teriyaki fried on a teppan, lamb cutlets cooked on a robata grill and served with a yaki niku sauce, deep-fried soft shell crab and unagi kabayaki - a dish of sea eel fillet grilled with a sweet soya sauce. The sake selection is a strong point but whiskey - Japanese and from around the world - is given prominence, too.
The restaurant is hidden away in a Knightsbridge townhouse at the end of Beauchamp Place. Once inside you'll find a traditional Japanese tea house with private booths and lots of warm dark wood and tatami benches.
Start with a cool glass of premium sake in our first floor bar then take a cosy both to enjoy beautiful sushi, tempura, noodles, tataki, tsukune and much more. Our chef's seasonal specials combine modern twists on classic Japanese dishes.
We are very proud of our sake list. We source varieties directly from Japanese brewers, importing them exclusively for our restaurant. You won't be able to find them anywhere else in the UK.
