Inamo offers diners a unique hi-tech dining experience. The menu is accessed via an interactive menu on the table and each dish or projected onto your plate to give a good idea of what you will be receiving. 

The menu covers classic sushi and Japanese dishes, along with some Inamo self created fair. The food is top notch and I recommend that everyone tries the spicy aubergine side dish. The only downside is the service charge that is added, given you do all the ordering yourself!

Upon paying, you will also receive a 25% discount for the basement bar, where various cocktails are provided. Alternative you can save the discount for use on a pre-dinner drink on your next visit.

I love this place, you order electronically from the table. I think it is a fantastic idea that really works! Whilst you're waiting for the food you can play games with your guest. The entertainment never stops! The food is absolutely delicious, you do have to book in advance though as this place always gets booked up!

This place is pretty cool and there is no other concept like this in London. Their interactive menus projected onto the table mean you don't have to call the waiter over every time you need to order something - perfect for a business lunch or first date. Other fun aspects of this include the ability to change your tablecloth (fun!) and play games. 

The menu is of an Asian-Fusion bent - highlights were the Hot-Stone Ribeye which arrived sizzling cooked to your own taste, and the Black Cod marinated with Spicy Miso. 

I'd recommend popping downstairs to the basement bar before or after to try some of their exotic cocktails, too. 


I like the concept of this place however in reality, it's pretty shocking. The place is incredibly dark and you can't really see what you're eating. The interactive tables are gimmicky but once again, I understand the whole idea of it and it's very unusual. The novelty does wear off very quickly.


Went on a date to Inamo on a Thursday night, thought the staff was lovely and attentive, food was served promptly and tasted delicious - satay chicken and the aubergine was amazing! Also had a couple of sushi dishes which were good. The menu was a bit fiddly to start with but once we got the hang of it there were no issues. I'd definitely recommend others to go.

I went here in 2012 and while the food was pretty tasty, it was also pretty pricy. However, the main problem was the restaurant is sooooooo cold! We asked if the aircon could be turned up but apparently they need it so low to ensure the projectors don't overheat. Would NOT recommend going if you (like me) tend to feel the cold or like eating in a cosy restaurant.


The e-menu is fiddly. The tables are packed so close together you can share your food with other diners, not that you would because the portions are rather small. The flavors and presentation are good. Our meal for 2 was around £70 at lunch time, excluding drinks, and we weren't even stuffed. By the way, our combined weight is 18.5 stone so we're not exactly pigs.


This restaurant was a horrible experience. A tech gimmic was an excuse for no customer service. Its like ordering takeout but paying for a nice restaurant. You might as well go back and do the dishes. You will end up doing everything else.


Pretentious, presumptuous, plain: waste of money We were utterly disappointed by this restaurant. The small dishes we ordered were just about average; though the sushi was nice. The larger dishes we chose (salmon and duck) had no taste whatsoever. Especially the fish was poor considering the quality and quantity. The majority of staff was condescending, almost arrogant. One girl was constantly smacking on chewing gum while dealing with the costumers! Luckily, not everyone showed such impolite and unprofessional behaviour. The interior is very nice and interesting. In fact, the computer screen tables were the only enjoyable thing about our visit at Inamo. You would expected much better food considering the price, attitudes, atmosphere, and presentation of the dishes.
