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.

Sake No Hana belongs to the Hakkasan and Wagamama restaurant group and offers modern authentic Japanese kitchen. Escalators lead to this first-floor stylish restaurant with high ceilings and wooden beams. Food is very good, service excellent.

Thord time in this fantastisk Japanese restaurant. Do try the sparkling Sake as a welcome drink and then go for some unusual sushi or the fantastisk sashimi. A very good view on the chefs from the bar. I will be back!

Sashimi and tartar were excellent as well as the variety of seaweed salad. Sorbets were also very refreshing. The staff was a bit off (eg they brought sake but forgot the glasses and they brought the sashimi without wasabi) but I guess it was a bad night Would definitely recommend and come back

Had diner here during the week, tried the 5 course tasting menu - delicious and recommended. The service is just top, probably the best service I ever seen. I will recommend this restaurant to a friend, and I will certainly be back.

Visited on a Monday evening after some shopping and was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was busy, service was great and the tasting menu absolutely delicious! The selection of small plates were fantastic, the yellowtail sashimi and crab sushi were beautiful and the pace of the meal was perfect. As good as Hakkasan and HKK and would definitely visit again!

I came to the restaurant on the 2nd April for a birthday celebration dinner with 4 others. What a disappointment! Lots of staff running around but no attention to detail! The food was mediocre to say the least. Considering this restaurant is part of the Hakkasan stables it falls well short of that standard. We won't return.

From the second you enter the building you are very much looked after. The ladies on the reception desk politely take your coats and guide you to your seat. From there the waiting staff are attentive and polite. The food itself is great. More gastronomical than filling, we had the set menu. 4 courses including a miso soup and then... 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.
