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 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

We began our evening in the bar down stairs where the cocktail menu was vast, drinks made to perfection. After being escorted up the escalator we entered a beautifully decorated dining area. The food was great and very tasty, I would recommend the seared tuna, spicy tuna maki and the black cod. The waiter and wine sommelier were knowledgeable and... More

Fantastic friendly staff, a wonderful 5 course tasting menu and a great atmosphere made this a brilliant choice for a special occasion. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and be sure to have a cocktail in the bar beforehand - the Mixologist is a genius!

Delicious food no doubt but awful customer service. We were denied the dessert menu as we we told we had to leave our table for customers who were waiting to be seated! In dismay we asked for the optional service charge to be removed from the bill and were met with a surprised expression! Furthermore, when leaving we were astonished... More

We opted for the £49 set menu which was really good value for money. It's so filling the portions are small but it's about 6 courses. The soup to start was very tasty, then we had the starters which were lovely. The beef especially. Then a sashimi platter the fish melts in your mouth. Then two started of duck and... More

Was looking forward to a good Japanese culinary experience, unfortunately found it very average. To start we had the miso was to be expected,then the salmon and chicken main was ok. We then had the sushi rolls which were a mix of vegetarian and fish. It was so bland we couldn't tell the difference between the two types. When asked... More

Went for a business lunch on a Friday. We did start dining late but it was absolutely dead as a doornail. By the time we ordered there was only one other group dining. This was all very surprising given the freshness of the fish and innovation of some of the dishes. If I'm honest the fixed price tasting menu was... More
