Just had a lovely 5 course dinner at Saka No Hana. What a treat! Staff were courteous, friendly right from the moment we step in the restaurant. Waiting staff were knowledgable about the menu, and able to offer alternative for my 10 year old from the set menu. Well the food, if you were looking for transitional Japanese food then... More

It was our first time at Sake no Hana and what a treat! We had the 5 course taster menu with a couple of extra dishes and it was more than enough. The restaurant is lovely with beautiful lighting and our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The cocktails are to die for! It is a bit pricey but perfect... More

What a lovely meal. I had the vegetarian set menu and although initially wanted extra black cod sushi, excellent advice from my waiter meant that by the time I had to make a decision in ordering it I was already full! The tofu teriyaki was to die for, the seaweed salad was excellent and I will be looking for yuZu... More

We went to this restaurant for its great reputation in London. We ordered a 5 courses tasting menu. We first got served a miso soup which was I would say nothing better than the one you would get at Wagamama. Then we got tuna tartare and deep fried sticky rice balls with truffle which we found again really average (nothing... More

I've wanted to try Sake No Hana for years - it always looked like a special place to eat. My friend and I ordered the Signature menu (£51 a head) and we were sadly, pretty disappointed with the food. The appetisers were fine, but not great - the aubergine was cold and soggy. The main courses were duck (so much... More

We were with a large group, and the staff made a problem out of us wanting different things. It seemed too difficult for them to accommodate. It was hard to wave anyone over, despite the large open space. They would just walk right pass you. Food was very average in terms of Japanese food. But given the fact that London... More

The quality of food here is quite simply dreadful; the staff capability and professionalism is quite simply dreadful and the prices are laughable. You are only paying top prices for a central London location. If you know and appreciate great food then this is definitely the WRONG PLACE. If you have had good FRESH sushi/Sashimi before you will be totally... More

Booked a table for early dinner on Monday. We had occasion to celebrate and it was certainly a perfect choice of place. Service was brilliant and attentive at all times, even when place got quite busy later in the night. Great atmosphere and decor really comes alive at night. Chose the set 5 dish menu and found food perfect. Cherry... More

For our daughter's ??th birthday, we booked the Saturday Special Lunch, a deal presenting a cocktail, half a bottle of champagne and seven courses from either a "normal" or vegetarian menu. The service was terrific with the staff answering any and all questions in a professional and relaxed manner. The food was excellent, probably the best Japanese food I have... More

Description
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.
