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. Monday to Thursday, 12pm - 2.45pm, 6pm - 11pm; Friday, 12pm - 2.45pm, 6pm - 11.30pm, Saturday 12pm - 4pm, 6pm - 11.30pm

I love sushi and Sake No Hana is one of the best places in London to eat sushi in!! The service is very quick and they are very respectful and smiley all the time. I love the idea of having only one waiter taking care of your table instead of asking different people something all the time. For the sushi... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant, and it was a winner. The best sushi ever, and excellent service througout the evening. We have been to London several times, and love sushi, but this is our first time here. We`ll be back!

Sake No Hana is an affordable, pretty and luxurious Japanese restaurant just off Piccadilly. The service is very good; highly professional staff with good manners and understanding of the menu. The food is also very good; not too dissimilar to the quality found at Nobu. There's something for everyone on the menu, but it may take a couple of tries... More

Whilst they tried, the service was not meeting the standard to meet the price list. Itsu could have done a better job in terms of the service. The food whilst nice, was not "wow". Won't be going again...

Been there 2 times, every time really enjoy the food. I am such a big fan of Japanese food, it is quite modern design and tasty! Specially like the sushi there, the one with mango in it, so lovely!

Friends of ours recommended this restaurant. The quality is really good but the dishes are a bit overpriced. They do try to provide an excellent service but do not deliver. I can't explain why I wouldn't go there again. May be because it's over serviced and a bit over crowded.

We dined here for a friend's birthday – we recognised that this was the sister restaurant of Hakkasan and loved Hakkasan so thought we would give Sake No Hana a try. The restaurant itself is very snazzy (just like Hakkasan) – escalators to get upstairs and a very "Japanese" setting. Staff are very welcoming and tentative from the moment you... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
