Inamo serves Asian fusion food in a very unusual setting. The ‘interactive ordering system’ consists of an illustrated menu projected onto the table surface, and also provides a platform for a range of digital activities. The food shows influences from numerous Asian cuisines, with western touches also in evidence. Dishes are intended for sharing, and are served when they’re ready.

Love this place! Such delicious food & the technology is really good fun. Very friendly team who make you feel very welcome. Would highly recommend.
The tastiest meal and such great value for money! We enjoyed 4 courses for £20 pre theatre and I would most definitely return, even if just to eat the banana and ice-cream pudding again! I loved the fact that the fact that the tables were interactive, great fun little gimmick!
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!
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.
