This restaurant is called Soho Japan, but is not anywhere close to the Soho area of London. It is actually in Baker Street, about 2-minute walk from the world famous Madame Tussauds Museum. The foods were authentic, covering traditional, contemporary and home-style cooking. The "combination starter" which allows the diner to choose 3 types of appetisers was a particular winner....

We just got off the train in Marylebone station and we were really hungry. We were looking for a bite to eat and something quick, tasty and filling. When we saw the place we both felt that would be a good choice for the evening. The place lacked a bit of ambiance, on the other hand it reminded me of... More

After living in Japan for 3 years, and now living in Italy it was so surprising and delightful to find an authentic Japanese restaurant in London. My family and I were heading to the Sherlock Holmes museum when we found this little gem of a place. We were not looking for a Japanese restaurant, but we were so glad to... More

Conveniently located across the street from Baker St station we had dinner here with a few friends.They ran out of a few dishes we wanted to order on the menu. They didn't seem to offer main dishes except a few soups. I needed to order three dishes to feel full. I had deep fried oysters, tuna and salmon makl rolls.... More

The food at this restaurant is great, but the staffs are very rude. They misunderstood our order and it took us 10 minutes to explain that to them as they could not communicate in English well. Once they understood, they would not change the food for us.

I can't imagine a friendlier restaurant experience than we get at SOHO Japan. They have nice japanese food at great value, and are very kid-friendly to boot. If you go there more than once, they'll probably remember you and what you ordered last time. They don't waste money on flash or frills, they just give you good food and a... More

My husband and I popped in and had some sushi and the fried squid. The food was tasty and authentic. There were many Japanese customers, so you know that this is the real deal! Lovely service. Will be back for sure!

Just opposite Baker street tube exit makes this lovely restaurant easy to find. Staff a bit over eager at first but once they realised we were there to enjoy a relaxed evening with friends not there to eat and go they relaxed. The food was a real treat, everything beautifully presented and prepared. The appetisers were fantastic, especially the mackerel... More

We are no expert on Japanese cousine, but the place was clean, received good service; the sushi and sake were to our liking as well. Would visit again and recommend to a friend.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
