The food is great, however the anmosphere wasn't relaxing. Extremely loud music and very persisted waiters. Overall is was very good evening with very delicious food. Looking forward to come back when the terrace will be open.

    Overpriced and only OK quality. I can easily find much better Japanese restaurants in London where the bill would be half of what it is here and double the quality.

    Beautiful resturant and lovely food but have had better sushi. This is more for the ambience and for drinks on the roof. Great service

    Went here with my family (wife two teenaged sons). It's a big place - the terrace is nice on a sunny evening but wasn't open the day we were there. The restaurant is pretty noisy but that's fine if you're looking for a buzzy place. The bar is busy with people so it has a lively atmosphere. The menu is comprehensive, with some traditional Japanese dishes and some more modern takes on oriental cuisine. Some of the food was tasty but none of it blew me away -- except the bill.

    We paid £300 for four people with no wine, just three beers and one cocktail. The waygu beef fillet was £55; the sushi platters were £31 & £36 (traditional & modern) for just 22 pieces in total so more than £3 per piece. I've eaten much nicer sushi at other London restaurants for half that.

    great way to taste test the menu which was superb - the vegetarian options were delicious and surprisingly filling. I didn't get the name of our waiter but he was attentive and lovely. would definitely recommend!

    The service was good as was the ambience. The rooftop balcony was especially nice. The food was fine but the portions could be more generous. The toilets were quite difficult to locate and were so dimly lit that I could barely make out my own reflection in the mirror.

    Good atmosphere and welcoming staff. Limited non-alcoholic cocktails. We ate in the Japanese part of the restaurant. Food was beautifully displayed and tasted good as well.
