Everything served in this restaurant is authentic and tastes are even better than average in Tokyo. If you are not satisfied with the quality, it simply means that you don't like authentic Japanese dishes. If so, you had better go to other restaurant with a lot of modifications for British people.


Very, very, very beautiful. Great selection of drinks. Never had a meal that was less than stunning here.


very mediocre (not 4 stars). black cod miso very blend, fried chicken and ice tofu are the other 2 dishes to avoid. Sushi and sashimi are ok but limited choice. I had better authentic Japanese restaurants in London.

I've been to many Japanese restaurants and travelled to Japan in many occasion. After living in the UK in search for a decent Japanese restaurant I've come across some very disappointing and mediocre restaurant in London. In addition they have always been expensive! However, after discovering Shimigamo my perspective has changed! Not only that the selection of food was extensive it was very affordable. I would recommend and try their Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki! Oh and their sushi and sashimi are very fresh!
