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

We had a splendid birthday dinner for my wife on 30 May. All three children joined us. Cocktails in the bar. We had the set menu for £65 per person. One bottle of superb sake: it seemed expensive at £68 a bottle but worth every penny.

We only went for drinks and snacks to Sake No Hana, cool restaurant although the bar area is a bit small. Very nicely done up Japanese restaurant - reminded me of the bamboo forest in Kyoto, even down to the incense burning. Great cocktails.
