Amazing food and great service. It could possibly be the best Japanese restaurant in London, I've tried many!


Best Japanese restaurant that I tried so far in London! The tapas concept is amazing, you will be able to try different things for an amazing experience. Of course it is expensive, as every good restaurant in London. Definitely worth every penny!

Below expectations overall. Some really good nibbles (crab with wasabi-Jalapeno sauce, lobster with miso Americaine sauce) and the toro sashimi topped with foie-gras mousse was also very good. The sweet corn and potato croquettas were very interesting, with nice texture and taste internally covered with a properly made crispy shell and accompanied by a well-balanced paprika relish. The sushi rolls were mediocre (shrimp tempura with sweet soy, double crab), the Hamachi yellowtail sashimi was fresh but indifferent, the grilled chilli garlic black cod was not cooked properly as it was almost tasteless with a "watery" with chilli garlick suace and the grilled Aubergine with sweet miso was too hot (although warned, still not acceptable) and overly sweet. Very disappointing was the fact that they were out of our 3 consecutive choices of bottles of wine (Gavi, a riesling and a Gruner Veltliner) out of a short wine list. The staff members were attentive. Some good moments but highly overpriced/overrated restaurant


Nice food but very cramped surroundings and I agree totally with the comments on not so friendly staff and tiny, expensive portions (some of the starters are actually 4 teaspoons of taster!!). We were still hungry after a "good" and very costly lunch and had to fill up on Lebanese sweets found just down the road. Food is a bit different and very tasty but don't go if you're hungry.


Inspired, delightful food with enough originality to make a highly recommended place.


Extremely expensive and staff not that friendly. The 6-28 pounds that tiimeout says for a main course is for a single bite, not for a main. Portions are tiny. Spent seventy pounds each for nice, but not amazing food. Then went home and had dinner.


Tried Dinings a few weeks back and we were somewhat disappointed. Not one dish stood out as 'amazing'. Do yourself a favour and spend your money at Nobu instead!

I used to swear by this place as being one of the best Japanese in London and perhaps in Europe. Alas, commercialisation has got to them and now the high prices do not warrant a visit to a basement dive. Worse still, the quality of the food had gone down dramatically and some of their best dishes are no longer on the menu. A real shame.
