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.

Excellent evening. Easy to access from the subway station. Super friendly staff from entry to exit. Really good food: quality, diversity...and nice explanations from the staff for people like me who know not much about the specifics of this type of food. A bit noisy, but as in "positive noisy". Good stuff!

This place came highly recommended to me but I was disappointed. We went to the bar for a drink before our table was ready and drank cocktails which tasted pre-made and like they were out of a squeezy tube. A hostess then asked politely whether we would like to go to our table, to which we said we would first... More

Absolutely fabulous!!! Food, drinks and service was really great! We had a very nice evening in a very modern atmosphere. I can only recommend to take one of the set menus as they are great in price and volume. I will definitely return on one of my coming visits to London!

The hotel offers Japanese style food with a modern twist. Choices on the menu are large and diverse, although slightly confusing. The service is excellent and the food very tasty and well proportioned. The only downside is the cost which is high even for the excellent quality. This aside it is well worth a visit.

What an awesome experience. The sushi was so fresh and the service awesome. I could havegone on for a long time. The interior is fresh maybe too monotone and the crowd was there to be seen.

The restaurant itself is on the 1st floor of the building and you gain access to it via some escalators. You leave by the escalators too (there is a one way system in the restaurant, so slightly confusingly, you don't go out the way you come in!). The decor is timber / high ceiling, quite simple, as is often the... More

I have to say I am delighted with the food and the service. We had the £65 tasting menu which was great. The... More
