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.

    Amazing service, food delicate and fresh. The wagyu is a must try, the fat just melts in your mouth.

    well trained staffs, welcoming attitude (I'm sure they are all smiling but shame that couldn't see it masks on). menu is quite limited but I guess that's the concept. all dishes are very overpriced, understand the quality of fish and A5 Wagyu but spending £180 + for two and left hungry (we went to another restaurant nearby for some more food) it was somewhat disappointing. would recommend to experience but won't rush back.

    Food was delicious but way too overpriced for Islington. One piece of sashimi or sushi was £5 per piece in comparison to around £3 in most other places. The carpaccio was around £16 in comparison to nearer £11 at other places. Wouldn’t go back purely based on this. Restaurant is not even on a particularly nice street in Islington.

    I dined on the 6th October 2020 The wagyu was amazing, we tried all three but the kobe ?? i would also definitely recommend the butterfish and the black cod also the oysters were perfectly sauced and big. Love there greeting and the owner coming round to check on everyone every once in a while was also nice. Service was great. Would in whole definitely recommend this place ??.five stars***** Sadaf

    Expensive but worth every single £1. This is an amazing restaurant, I took my husband for his birthday, and we only had the Sushi, which was just exquisite. The service was impeccable, from the minute you walk in to leaving the restaurant. You are greeted by all staff as you walk in. We have had some really expensive sushi in the past, but this place comes TOPS. Most definitely get my recommendation.

    Amazing food, drink and service. The hot stone was slightly pricey for what it consisted of but the rest of the food (sushi, sashimi) was class. Waiters and chef were very attentive

    The service and staff very friendly. The food was ok. The place however is super expensive and the amount of food served is tiny. 2 people spent £110 pounds for food and a glass of wine each and we left the restaurant hungry. Wouldn’t recommend.

    Loved the intimacy and smallness of this place. Nicely welcomed and taken to our table. The carpaccio dishes were really yummy plus the Hot Stone sushi Nigiri was yummy. The cooking of the Kobe beef was fun and next time will try more of the other dishes. Beautifully made and displayed food.
