Sen Nin Japanese Teppanyaki & Sushi Restaurant - Camden

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Sen Nin Japanese Teppanyaki and Sushi restaurant, located in London on Camden's Pratt Street, is a hip spot to stop-off for a sushi-and-sake break, and this restaurant's relaxed, zen interior and excellent value-for-money menu attract a regular crowd of local scenesters, sushi enthusiasts and media folk. Everyone gathers in a group around teppanyaki grills in groups of ten, maybe orders a starter or two, then watches in delight as the chef performs, searing squid, meats, chicken and more. Sen Nin’s teppanyaki-style service guarantees a good show, and the theatrical chefs provide the perfect backdrop for first dates, pre-gig bites and fun nights out with friends. Sen Nin’s other Japanese menu specialties include fresh sushi, teppanyaki, tempura and soups with cocktails and chilled or hot sake on the side – we recommend the deluxe assorted sashimi platter, the udon gozen noodles with tempura prawns and vegetables.

Sen Nin a popular and very entertaining teppanyaki resturant in the heart of Camden. I first discovered this place last year when I visited to try out its yummy sushi and sashimi, the dragon roll @£13,95 was superb and the cocktails were prettying decent too. This occasion I am here to try out the lobster and steak teppanyaki special for Craig's birthday. The evening starts with a bit of a show, the skilled chefs juggling eggs, and will include audience participation making it mildly entertaining. Be warned this place is small and when the teppanyaki starts it can get very warm. The egg fried rice with veg and lobster were perfectly done @ £20 a head you can't go wrong . The night was spent drinking some amazing cocktails and tiger beer. They have a comprehensive menu which includes, sushi, sashimi, salads and the usual selection of appetisers calamari , spring rolls and yakitori . This place is friendly, great value for many especially as it takes tastecard.


 I have visited Sen Nin in Camden quite a few times, because I used to live in the building next door. It was my local restaurant, and as locals go, this one is pretty brilliant.

Conveniently, they offer a tastecard discount from Sundays-Thursdays, and Tuesdays they do a 50% off everything deal, including drinks, so it's never an expensive meal out. But even if it was, you could justify it because it's so much more than just a meal. It's a show too.

The chef personal to each hot table has a few staple tricks which always get the table excited - igniting the entire table with a wall of fire (perfect if you've just come in from the cold!), a spot of knife juggling, and some egg flipping into a hat (which he encourages table participation with which is always guaranteed hilarity!)

The food is pretty fantastic - the sushi is fresh, beautifully presented (as is the way with traditional Japanese cooking) and made with quality ingredients. I enjoyed the California Roll and some Salmon Sashimi on my latest visit last week. But the real stars of the menu are the teppanyaki cooked dishes.

I have usually opted for the slightly cheaper dishes in the past - the steak, prawns and calamari are all solid options, and each dish comes with Miso Soup, egg fried rice and vegetables. But last week, I decided to push the boat out and order the Wagyu Beef & Black Cod... because it was 50% off, and i'd just broken up with my boyfriend so I decided I deserved a bloody lovely treat to cheer myself up. And let me tell you, ladies and gents - Wagyu beef may not be the absolute cure for a broken heart, but it comes bloomin' close! Who needs a man when you have have a succulent, buttery, melt in the mouth piece of rare steak!? NOT ME! It was seasoned to perfection, juicy and probably the best food bargain i've ever grabbed myself.

The Black Cod was equally stunning with a tangy, almost sweet miso sauce. The fish flaked effortlessly with the chop sticks and was gorgeous with the accompanying vegetables.

Our entire bill with the 50% discount came to £44.50! I don't think there's a better deal to be had in London, not when it includes such fantastic service and basically a personal chef. I'd say it's a must visit for anyone who loves Japanese food, or who is looking to mend a broken heart!

I went on Tuesday evening at Sen Nin's with the girls and I believe that this place is really an experience for good Teppanyaki. I am not an expert in Japanese cuisine as I am new to it but one thing is for sure - everything was delicious. From the classic California rolls and fried squid as starters to the mais - miso soup, egg-fried rice and a selection between steak, chicken, king prawns, lobster etc! 

The Teppanyaki chefs are giving an amazing show apart from preparing amazing main dishes. People get to seat around the Teppanyaki grill and watch them doing their magic as well as interacting with them. 
Last but not least, there is half price on everything on the menu every Tuesday, so that makes it a real value for money. I had the king prawns and I enjoyed every bite of it - they were so juicy and full of taste. 
Next time I will try the lobster - it looked delicious!
