I visited yesterday just as a walker by with my husband and inlaws. We are still so shocked at the excellent value for the 7 course taster menu, with champagne and a cocktail for £45 each!! The food was amazing. The staff were amazing. The setting was amazing! I want to go straight back when I'm next in London! Top... More

I have experienced many Hakkasan offerings and the quality is undoubted. But they can be nuanced and overly expensive: this is not the nature of their offshoot. The tasting menu at £35 of five courses and half a bottle of good wine was exceptional value and had the quality of its more esteemed cousin. The elevated surroundings of the restaurant... More

Three female family members getting together enjoyed Sake No Hana for Saturday lunch after a trip to the RA. Ordered drinks (cocktail and prosecco) and were a little surprised that the soup on the set menu (five course) we had opted for arrived before the cocktails. We asked for the soup to be removed and for the food to be... More

Impressive modern interiors and very attentive staff. Fairly big space and not busy at all. A very good variety of Japanese food and not limited to sushis of course. The speed of service was fantastic and food arrived quickly and waiters didn't waste any time, maybe because it was a quiet day? The presentation was fabulous and two of us... More

I went here with my husband for a pre theatre lunch. The food was superb. We had the 7 course vegetarian taster menu. It is such good value, tasty, well presented. The service was outstanding! Would go again and would recommend it for sure.

This is not a new opening but my first visit as I always prefer to have genuine Japanese food! An invitation for a business lunch did not give me an option but I was pleasantly surprised. This is helped by the reasonably priced set lunch menu which included half bottle of wine per person! Service was efficient and food was... More

We had the tasting 5 course menu but added 2 bowls of rice to be served with the main course, overall more than enough food for dinner. Great miso soup and tempura prawns. The salmon sushi and chicken main course were also good, not so keen on the dessert which was sweet but rather lacking in other taste. Nice venue,... 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.
