Sake No Hana

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
As you’d expect from the Hakkasan restaurant group, Sake No Hana is well designed and has slick service: a combination that means the striking yet serene dining room plays host to many a business lunch from the Economist’s offices round the corner. On a midweek lunchtime visit there were also a number of well-heeled families enjoying the range of contemporary Japanese dishes.
A four-course ‘Taste of Sake No Hana’ (£29) proved a filling meal, with miso soup, a choice of sukiyaki, tempura or grilled dish, a handful of sushi and a dessert. Arriving sizzling at the table, its earthenware cloche still in place, our tofu toban-yaki came with a pleasingly tangy ponzu dressing and slices of shiitake and eringi mushroom on the side. A coating of tempura batter pieces added interest to an avocado and red pepper inside-out roll; and a selection of ice-cream mochi wedges, presented in a circle like the petals of a flower, rounded off the meal well.
There’s also plenty for wine and saké buffs to get stuck into. Don’t forget to glance upwards while you’re dining; the sculptural wood slating above your head definitely deserves a look.
