A stunningly presented Japanese restaurant in Convent Garden, Murakami Restaurant blends izakaya-style dishes with unique interior design that represent the 5 elements of Japanese philosophy – fire, wind, water, metal and earth.

The Murakami Restaurant menu covers everything from classic sushi and sashimi favourites, to traditional izakaya sharing plates. Signature rolls feature prawn tempura, avocado, mango and spicy mango sauce, while special aburi rolls that are flame seared with Japanese charcoal combine tuna with caramelised onion salsa. From the Japanese robata grill there is Wagyu beef with truffle butter, and vegetarian recipes like grilled aubergine with saikyo miso.

There is a huge sake Japanese whisky and beer selection at Murakami Restaurant in Covent Garden, while unique cocktail creations use exciting flavours like roasted rosemary and yakitori sauce. Inside the restaurant, there are stunning design touches like a 12-metre wall filled with long grass, and numerous hanging art pieces.

With truly unique style and a versatile menu, Murakami Restaurant in London is a 2-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    The food and atmosphere was lovely definitely try the spicy mango salmon sushi. We also got a glass of champagne each as it was our anniversary.

    My second visit. Has a great atmosphere with friendly staff. Like that you can see into the kitchen and watch the chefs preparing the sushi and the grill. Every dish is beautifully presented, perfect for sharing, and is made to order. Favourites are the tempura popcorn shrimp, all the handmade rolls I've tried are delicious, the teriyaki salmon, spare ribs. Highly recommend
