My friends and I met here for dinner and had a special set menu. The food was nice and well presented. There was no opportunity to make changes to the menu but that is normal. The free cocktail was like marmite - I hated it and my friend loved it.

    Delicious

    The restaurant doesn't have an identity in that it feels like a bar/club with food. Noisy, low lighting, dark furniture all adds to a clubby vibe. Food was ok but nothing worth returning for, unfortunately. Our waitress was sweet but a bit clueless and giggly and had it took 3 attempts to order a decaf coffee as she had never heard of it...?

    It was good. Felt a bit rushed and not sure why as the restaurant wasn’t overly busy. Then had to wait ages to get our bill at the end. Had the 3-course menu with cocktail. The teriyaki salmon could have had a bit more teriyaki flavoured (it was pretty bland), and it would have been nice to be able to choose from a few cocktails instead of being told the free cocktail was only 1 option, which wasn’t something my friend and I preferred. Nice atmosphere and cute presentation, starters and dessert were good!

    Interesting choice for Japanese in London.... “tuned” atmosphere.... service rather “automated”....food tasty but not spectacular.

    Went with my husband and friends on the set menu offer of a cocktail and 3 course menu. One friend doesn't drink cocktails and he had a white wine instead. The remaining 3 of us were happy to have the cocktail but there was no choice of cocktail. The one with the offer, we discovered was gin-based, which none of us like. We were eventually given one with a vodka base but only after speaking with the Manager. The waiter refused to change it twice before that! That being said the food was fabulous, beautifully served in a lovely restaurant with a very eclectic décor. Loved it.

    We wee ushered in by security and informed that our table was read on the fifth floor . When we emerged from the elevator we were met by booming music in the bar area of the restaurant to our table . We noted that there were quite a few Japanese or Chinese diners in the restaurant , from past experience this has taught me that the food must be pretty good and varied . We had our set deal dinner , but ordered a few more starters and wn extra mai. After looking at an menu that proved to tempting to resist . The food was delicious .. serviing portions ,a little on the small side but other than that a fantastic dining experience and define a venue I will come back to
