Upmarket Japanese dining in a sleek and elegant restaurant in Piccadilly. Unfortunately, it wasnt one of our favourite Bookatable experiences. For a start, the "5 courses plus half a bottle of wine for £35" offer that had initially attracted me was not offered...as such. I had chosen this place as a birthday treat as the advertised menu was not too sushi-heavy (my partner is not a big fan). We were seated promptly & offered the a la carte menu, plus a card advertising a 'Sakura' (cherry blossom season) fixed menu. I mentioned we had booked the 5 courses plus wine menu through Bookatable (guaranteed to make one feel like a rank amateur) and was shown the fixed price Sake No Hana menu at the back - 5 courses for £31, before drinks. This indeed, in retrospect, was the food menu we had booked. It looked very nice too - miso soup, a small appetiser, then a choice of 3 pieces of sushi/sahimi or vegetarian alternatives, a hot dish (choice of 3) and dessert. Our error was to get a bit flumoxed and to gaze longingly on the £34 Sakura menu that was being heavily promoted by our waiter and which we ended up choosing. This included a seasonal cherry cocktail, soup, a box of sushi/sashimi & a hot dish (choice of 3). The cocktail WAS sensational (gin, sake, cherry liqueur, dash of peach bitters & grapefruit juice). It came with three atomisers on the side, containing perfumes of cherry, jasmine & something else which escapes me to spray over the glass so as to enhance the experience. Annoyingly, it also came 5 mins after the soup. Next came the hot dish, then the sushi. My other half waded manfully through his sushi box. The quality of the food was excellent though. Desserts (5 cherry macaroons, or an artfully presented cherry mousse with sorbet & viola petals) were delicious and £8 a pop. With 2 bottles of fizzy water, the bill came to £105 inc service (I had asked for the wine list, but it never materialised). All in all, a bit disappointing.

We had a booking for the 5 course set menu. The selection of food on the set menu was very good and we were able to sample some of their lovely dishes from the white miso soup, to a fantastic selection of sushi, to a main dish and excellent dessert. Service was excellent from start to finish. Beautiful restaurant setting and great atmosphere. The Shi Shi cooler mocktail is so refreshing and and the Miyazaki Passion mocktail is zingy. Overall a great experience and truly fine dining.

Nice food and mainly good sized portions. The truffle rice and salmon was delicious. Tempura prawns and veg was a little on the small side with only 2 prawns. Service was slightly rushed - they brought our first course when we hadn't even finished our miso soup. Atmosphere was great with open kitchen and flowers hanging from the ceiling.

A nice experience overall, however some disappointing points.
Set menu food was generally lacklustre with a few really lovely pieces.
Sushi ordered separate to the set menu was of much higher standard and tasted a lot fresher.
The sushi that was part of the set menu tasted like it had been prepared earlier and left to sit overnight.
The service started off really well - hostesses are very polite and friendly.
Male server was a little cold and unresponsive.
The wait between the starter and the sushi was ludicrously long and the restaurant was relatively empty.
Other people I know have had much better experiences so perhaps it was an off night.

Dined here with my husband on a Saturday night using the 5-courses for £35 deal. Every course was of poor quality, not reflecting at all the quality of the main menu (which we have had when dined here before, hence returning a second time). The dishes on this offer have really let the place down, we won't be dining here again or recommending it.

Really good food and wine

We went to Sake no Hana on the 5 course tasting menu and would strongly recommend it! The food was very good and great value on the offer (5 courses and half a bottle of wine for £35). The service was slightly rushed at the start but upon ordering a second bottle of wine it slowed to an enjoyable pace.
I would particularly recommend the crispy truffle rice and the Salmon avocado maki!
