Description: Sake no Hana bar and restaurant is housed on the first floor of a modernist Grade II listed building in the heart of St James, offering modern Japanese dining. The a la carte menu provides a variety of hot and cold appetisers, charcoal grill, Toban and Kamameshi dishes, while sushi and sashimi are... prepared to order at the 13 seat sushi bar. A carefully selected list of sakes, Japanese whiskeys and other wines, spirits and liqueurs complement the dishes offered in the restaurant. Sake no Hana's interiors were designed my esteemed architect Kengo Kuma and the bar includes a beautiful futuristic chandelier, offering the perfect space for post work cocktails. The bar is also a beautiful space for private parties of up to 60 guests for a standing canape event, or can host up to 25 guests seated for an exclusive private dining experience.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday last year and I must say we both loved it. The food is high quality and the service is excellent too. The venue was great too

I used Sake no Hana for business lunch many times and took family and friends for dinner once. I think they do a better job for lunch plus it is better value than dinner. But if you have some liquid money to spend, dinner is just fine too! Keep it mind that food is good but you will get a... More

Party of two, had a starter each and a very basic sushi plate (8 peaces) with a bottle of beer. Total: 90 QUID. Not a steal... Good taste,kind staff and fancy escalator though.

Went there with friends. Booked a table for 9pm but the table was ready only at 9:30. Food was ok (we tried the signature menu) but too expensive in my opinion. You can find better for less expensive. Staff is ok but are a bit pushy.

Had a meal in this restaurant last night and I must say we were served high quality food. The sushi is delicious. There were six of us so we all ordered to share and everything was very tasty. Deserts are also a must!

We dined here at the end do December following suggestions from the reviews and other sources, including parent company Hakkasan (well known in London). The food is really of high quality although we experienced a small inconvenience which was quite promptly resolved with direct involvement of the Restaurant Director. Wine are overpriced hence the value for money is not quite... More

Sake No Hana is indeed a nice experience but not a wow factor. Great ambiance, great customer service and the Christmas set menu was very affordable at £35 for a 4 course dinner. Food was flavorful but not spectacular. The restaurant is located in Mayfair (for those of you visiting London, it is the most expensive area in the city)... More

Taking the escalator inside the restaurant is a cool way to start the evening. The restaurant was packed and noisy but in a good way. We opted for the XL christmas menu and were not disappointed. Everything was delicious. We had a nice Riesling that held up well to the Japanese flavors. The star of the show was the Yellowfin... More

Good service from all staff in a nice locale with a comfortably low noise level. We enjoyed a selection of sushi, sashimi and maki. The restaurant offers a large selection of high quality ingredients and the food was nicely prepared and presented. My only small, negative comment is that the sashimi was cut in quite thick slices and we had... More
