Excellent place, food is amazing, almost as good as in Japan. Sushi chefs are very skilled and courteous, fantastic experience to see them at work. Great attention to detail and customer care.
Definitely come back and recommend to friends and business associates.

    A nice looking place. The first of the Hakkasan chain with day light. We had booked for the special lunch deal of 4 courses with proseco for £29. The food was average. Miso soup (unexceptional) to start, followed by a main course (we had salmon that was good and chicken that was rather dull), sushi (rice rolls very fresh and good, but again not the height of originality) and desert (panacotta with blackberries and a delicious sorbet). At that price the meal was reasonable value, but I would not have paid the much higher standard prices for that. The service was good.
    The restaurant is on the first floor and an internal lift takes you to the toilet in the basement. When we visited the emergency door was closed and had a lock with a number combination to unlock it. In case of fire this arrangement may not be safe, as the only exit appeared to be via the lift. Worth checking whether my observation is correct, but I certainly did not see any other exit.

    Had a really good time at Sake No Hana. Very welcoming at both reception and bar reception. Waitress was very accommodating from entrance to exit. It was nice to have someone explain the menu and that only x1 person would serve us throughout the evening. Very good ambience throughout the restaurant. The food was amazing I was absolutely stuffed with all four courses. Presentation was beautiful cannot fault the food at all.

    Great service, great food, very nice decoration.
    Only had 7 days in London, but would definitely go back on my next visit.
    Highly recommended!

    Sake No Hana is just down the road from the famous London Ritz hotel, but holds a much less obvious corner plot which we could easily have walked past! Once inside it is a different matter. The downstairs bar was a pleasant surprise - trendy, with various seating options at the bar, high rise stools/tables and cosy corners. The dimmed lighting added to the ambience and created a comforting intimacy. The drinks menu was varied and included 'Blue Moon' a very nice bottled beer, at reasonable prices. The elevator took us upstairs to a vast impressively designed main restaurant. The seating was comfortable, lights dimmed with candles on tables. We had the Xmas 5 course set menu with a glass of Prosecco for £35 suggested by 'Bookatable'. Each course was an absolute treat! The service was also first class. This was our first experience of Japanese food and we will definitely be returning to sample more delights. Thank you 'Book a table'!

    Good service but the soup on our table arrived cold and my fish was over cooked and dry

    The restaurant is beautiful but food very average for a high price and service absolutely horrible: the waiter got our order wrong, made us repeat several times our order, etc. we also felt pushed to consume more than we wanted and invited to depart quickly. Not a recommended experience!

    Very well looked after in the bar. The bar man produced the most delicious and interesting cocktail I have had in a long time. We then had a very enjoyable supper, food delicious and staff helpful.
