Restaurant description

Awarded "Best sushi in London" by Eaten app for their sushi, Hot Stone is an interactive dining concept in Islington. This contemporary Japanese steak and sushi bar serves dishes over a sizzling hot stone while also priding itself in being one of only 6 UK restaurants to offer certified Kobe beef. Filled with a blend of traditional and modern styles, diners can also sit up at the counter and watch the talented chefs at work.

The Hot Stone menu is centred around the ancient cooking method of Ishiyaki, where guests can grill their own choice of meats to their preferred doneness on a 400° celsius heated hot stone. Selection of fresh seafood and both Japanese and halal Australian wagyu beef are served still sizzling, with a choice of sauces like kizami jalapeño salsa and goma sauce. Choose from the head chef's specialities, including A5 Japanese Wagyu on hot stones, 48-hour marinated Chilean seabass, grilled aubergine with homemade saikyo miso and chef's award winning sushi.

Hot Stone uses only 100% real Japanese wasabi, a luxurious root which takes 3 year to grow and is freshly grated in front of diners. To drink, a diverse sake menu is served at Hot Stone in Islington, along with Japanese beers, international wines and spirits. Finish up with indulgent sweet treats like the homemade cheesecake.

A fun restaurant in London that showcases gourmet Japanese flavours, Hot Stone is a 5-minute walk from Angel Tube Station.

    Excellent service at Hot Stone in Islington. We were seated very fast and had a nice table by the bar. The waitress who was serving us helped us navigate the menu and recommended our 4th dish as she thought our choices wouldn't be enough between 2 people. I am glad we took her recommendation with the Aubergine dish as that was very tasty and filled us up together with our other orders. Overall, we had a great time and would love to come again/recommend to friends.

    The atmosphere is amazing. Stuff is welcoming and chef sometimes would come and ask every visitor how was the food. And don't start me witht the food. Food is amazing.

    £80 for 2 and I was still hungry afterwards. That is a con. The 3 courses and cocktail were all delicious but consisted of 2 small sliced scallops and 1 small wagyu steak plus a tiny slice of cheese cake and the cocktail. No carbs or veg. The waitress recommended that we upgrade to wagyu something which would have cost an extra £81, and looked very scornful when I told he that wasn’t possible. The food was all delicious and the decor is quite fun but it was nonetheless disappointing. That said, the lychee martini was divine. I think they need to be more honest about their offer pricing.

    A relaxed restaurant, with nice decor - boughs of cherry blossoms on the ceiling. Delicious food, but very expensive - be warned! We loved everything. The rolls were outstanding.

    great food, great experience, Elisa gave us a very friendly and personalised service. Chef was friendly and funny, I wish it wasn't closing time and we would have stayed longer one minor suggestion: colder beers please
