I went with a friend on a Friday evening in July 2016 at 7.30pm and had the 5 course tasting menu and drink deal. The service was great and really helpful - they explain what the food is - and the food was excellent overall, except for the "main meal" part of the deal (a choice of salmon or chicken)... More

My client insisted we go here, despite only seats at the bar being available on a busy night. It was well worth it- I thought the food was excellent. It's bustling, so not exactly the hushed tones of a zen garden. Good service (only the chefs are Japanese though- all other staff from Remainland); and a dedicated sake sommelier! We... More

We went to SNH for our 10th anniversary. First we headed to the cocktail bar for an aperitif. The cocktails were OK, though not exactly setting the world on fire. Top marks for ambiance though. Then we went up for dinner and they really really looked after us. There was easily enough food in the signature menu to fill you... More

This was my second time dinning at Sake No Hana. The first time I went; I didn't like that food much; so thought to give it another chance by visiting it again. Sadly, still the food wasn't that great. We did order different dishes (shrimp tempura; crab tempura; Lobster Salad; Miso Soup; some Maki sushis; steak; and rice) I honestly... More

Went to dinner at 7pm on Tuesday night. The food was lovely the tastes exploding in your mouth as you took a bite of each piece. I actually could not fault anything about the food, presentation and taste was ideal. The staff were very efficient yet friendly and helped in any way they could. The layout was surprising airy and... More

I knew that it wasn't great but I wanted to try. I always try the tempura dish because I think that a proper Japanese restaurant should know how to prepare it. Unfortunately it wasn't light and crisp as I aspected; I had sushi as well, and my sushi rice was falling apart. The best thing was the service, that was... More

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

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.
