Very good lunch - varied, oriental, interesting. Kept cool on a hot day by good air-conditioning. Smart place in a great West End shopping location. Reasonably priced.

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 indoors gives guests a view of the expert sushi chefs.

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 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 in 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 near Oxford Circus sits just 2 minutes' walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station.

    The venue, service and food was of a very high standard.

    Nice place. Largely very good and timely service. Perhaps a bit short on atmosphere in the day. Sushi excellent, sashimi .... good. Ostrich superb, scallops somewhat bland and squishy. Puddings a delight. Wines - small choice but very good and not unreasonably priced.

  • ((*** by from London

    Food was greasy and bland for Japanese. Space was loud, crowded, and trying to hard to be posh. House wine was mediocre and overpriced. Spend less, dine better, go elsewhere.

    Really delicious, fresh Japanese food. Possibly the best cocktail I've ever tasted. Great location for Oxford Circus and the Palladium. Friendly, helpful, efficient service. Great value through Bookatable's offer! I was surprised the restaurant was so empty at 6:30pm on Thursday night, but by 7:30pm it was really buzzing. Nice outside terrace with views over London too. Perfect for an aperitif/ digestif.

    Restaurant was very good but service was sub standard. Actually worst service I have had in a restaurant. No waiter/waitress seemed to be assigned to guests
