Set in the landmark former Dickins & Jones building, Aqua Kyoto offers sublime Japanese cuisine. As well as offering breathtaking views over London from the expansive roof terrace, a lowered kitchen gives guests a view of the expert sushi chefs indoors.

Crafted with absolute precision and sumptuously fresh ingredients, the Aqua Kyoto menu offers innovative flavour combinations bursting with colour and freshness. Contemporary creations at Aqua Kyoto restaurant include tempura prawn roll topped with grilled eel, or soft-shell crab with avocado. Served sizzling from the charcoal grill, guests can also enjoy tender meat cuts of slow-cooked pork belly with red miso and crackling, or chicken thighs with teriyaki.

For Japanese-style indulgence, Aqua Kyoto London offers classic European desserts with a twist. Try a smooth sake prune crème brulee, or white sesame parfait with poached cherries, as well as cleansing Japanese teas and native wines.

Blending traditional oriental features and ultra-slick design, aqua kyoto Oxford Circus sits just 2 minutes' walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station.

    It is always a pleasure dining at Aqua Kyoto. We had the floral menu which was delicious and the staff were friendly. Although our drinks were cleared off the table before finishing which was quite the surprise to us but once we made the staff aware of this our drinks were replaced with new ones.

    We had the floral set menu. Cocktail was lovely, presentation was brilliant and sashimi fresh. The chicken main felt slightly fatty and perhaps cheap/low quality meat. The desert was wonderful and tasty. The wine list is extensive and the staff are friendly and helpful. I would return and recommend Aqua, especially a drink in the sunshine on the lovely roof terrace.

    The bar and restaurant is decorated to a high standard, with a great atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and service prompt. We had the floral set menu which went down well with all of the guests. Downside is that we felt slightly rushed especially towards the end and the chicken tasted slightly fatty. But overall, great menu choice and a reasonable price. I would return.

    Excellent food and service. Wine list was expensive and lacked cheaper options.

    A mixed experience, excellent friendly service but the deal on offer was a very poor alternative. The offer of a cocktail sounded enticing but in reality there was no choice with the cocktail offered poorly made and lacking any real flavour or kick, The menu on offer was just as restrictive and rather insulting when you consider the range of dishes available to those not on this offer. All of this would have been understandable if the offer constituted great value but it didn't. So whilst I would possibly recommend the restaurant I would avoid this deal.

    If this offer is to attract customers to there restaurant they will never return, the portions were so small that my friend and I after we left the restaurant crossed the road to have a burger, very dissapointing experience, even the small cocktail I am sure never had and alcholol in. Would not return to give them another chance.
