    Nice location but menu had very little choice, cocktails were undrinkable. Won't be going back.

    We had the sashimi omakase - very minimal, wagyu stew - delicious and the chocolate fondant with a warm liquid centre(very well done). Very trendy. A place to be seen. Don't bother having too much of a conversation as the music is loud.

    My husband and I visited Aqua Kyoto for their brunch menu. We were greeted in the lobby and shown to the lift which takes you to the fifth floor. We were then greeted at reception where we were introduced, our coats were taken and we were shown to our table. There are several options available but we chose the bottomless champagne brunch. Brunch is a set menu including sushi, noodles and chicken and beef skewers plus other items. As this was our first visit the menu was explained by our waiter and the food was delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented. The champagne really was free flowing and good quality, All the staff we met were friendly and professional, the service was exceptional. We were also given a tour of the terrace and their sister restaurant Aqua Neuva which is next door. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning on our next visit to London. Our thanks to Heldo, Lubos, Laura and Alejandro for looking after us.

    We enjoyed so much for the anvience and foods although they were not quite authentic as Japanese foods. But they were very tasty!

    Food was incredible and good portions considering we choose off the set menu. Sashimi was thick and delicious and the Wagu beef melted in the mouth.

    I was there before just for cocktails and the location is nice. However I was impressed at all by the restaurant, because the deal menu was really simple and in my opinion doesn't represent at all the restaurant. They proposed chicken wigs at starter, an acid wagyu stew and a simple chocolate cake with gelato. Honestly the deal menu doesn't worth your money and neither represent the restaurant, I honestly hope their menu is much better than what proposed!
