I enjoyed eating at Yumenoki. Though when we went the place was practically empty (we did go on a weekday evening). The sushi is tasty - it's comparable to what I've had elsewhere. It's good, it's not particularly bad but not mind blowing either - it's middle of the road. The chef's selection was cool. The tempura noodle dish was delicious and very warming. The basement appears to have a private entertainment area, it was amusing to see colourfully dressed party goers go through the restaurant to karaoke.

I went for the Deluxe Bento #4 - Nigiri Sushi & Sashimi. This comes with a side of fresh salad, soup, and some marinated seaweed and maki rolls as starters.


The sashimi selection consisted of 2 slices of salmon, 2 slices of tuna, and 2 slices of pickled mackerel. All of these were pretty standard and types of fish that I have tasted before. I especially liked the pickled mackerel because that's an option I haven't really seen in London.


The nigiri selection included: 1 omelette, 1 salmon, 1 tuna, 1 pickled mackerel, and 1 prawn. Once again, all are types that I have tasted before and I know I enjoy. Typically, the Japanese omelette is my least favourite but this time, they were quite generous with how thick it was cut and shaped and it actually wasn't too sweet, which I liked! 


The salad was kept simple with lettuce leaves, a slice of tomato and cucumber slices. It came with a small bottle of dressing, which was green in colour and that I thought was really good! I can't figure out what it was, but it was tasty and the amount given was perfect - enough to give the simple salad flavour without overpowering the other flavours in the bento box. 


There was a good amount of pickled ginger given to cleanse the palette between fish and a nice slice of orange to finish the meal off. I really liked the seasoned seaweed starter because it was very flavourful  and light! As for the maki starters, they were filled with avocado and crab sticks - a pretty standard combination and average in taste.
