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.

    Food was amazing. My favourite was the volcano roll. Went here for my birthday with 6 friends and both service and food was great. I've given it 4 stars for service was they forgot my boyfriends main course, wasn't until I mentioned it 40 minuted later when I mentioned it that they realised.

    Excellent food and cocktails in stylish environment. Our dining experience was somewhat let down by poor customer service.
    Our group of four and another customer where at arrival completely ignored by two staff members, we were not greeted nor asked if we had a reservation/like to have a seat. Only after we stopped one staff member rushing around we finally got their attention.
    During dinner itself, dishes came in the wrong order or were forgotten, water glasses were not refilled, the soy sauce was spilled accidentally (stuff happens) and there seemed to be communicational problems amongst the staff about what drinks where ordered and when. The person that served us throughout the evening did a good job.
    Luckily the food and cocktails were very good so our evening wasn't overshadowed by customer service issues.

    Good tasty food. Service a little chaotic but that was acknowledged and reflected through reduction on the bill.

    Efficient welcome and international service. Our table was near the door and a bit in the middle of the way. Food was good. It was too noisy.

    Strictly average. Tempura batter was too thick. Roasted cauliflower was not hot enough. Fish overpowered by dressing.

    The restaurant was a lot smaller than when we had last visited, which made it feel very cramped, and the dishes we had chosen barely fitted on the table for 4.
    However, we thoroughly enjoyed every dish!

    Very poor service. Underwhelming sushi, fish not that fresh. Beautiful presentation but high prices, poor service and sushi that wasn't nearly as tasty as it looked.
