Restaurant description

inamo Covent Garden showcases sumptuous Pan-Asian cuisine through pioneering interactive ordering and entertainment systems.

Order your meal through an innovative tablet system where you can also rate your dishes. The trademark table-top projections offer a live video feed from the kitchen on chef-cam, games such as Pong and Memory, the ability to colour and draw directly on your table surface, and even customise your table with your own images. The elegant décor includes glowing onyx panels and clusters of bamboo.

Delectable and inventive, the inamo menu centres on sharing plates of high quality sushi, Asian tapas, & larger sharing dishes. Feast on the likes of dragon roll, wasabi prawns, sizzling black pepper fillet of beef, Szechuan chicken, crispy duck and yuzu pork belly. For dessert indulge in apple gyoza and caramel ice cream, or a candy floss garden with chocolate tree trunk on a landscape of crushed Oreo.

Sakes, world wines, Japanese beers and tropical fruit juices make up the drinks menu, and there are cocktails matched for pre, during and post-meal sipping.

Discover inamo a stone's throw from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Food and service was great. However the wine included in the bottomless Asian tapas and wine deal was awful. Worse wine that what one might drink in their college years. We ended up completely omitting the wine that was included in our offer and stuck to water and ordered a couple of cocktails each (paid extra for these).

    The food here was 10/10, and all came out hot and very quickly having ordered from the pad on the table. The games on the table were fun to play and the overall experience here was great. Very good value for money too. I would definitely return.

    Electronic table games and the ordering via screen was amazing. The house wines where really good. Also the Wings!

    Overall I had such a great time and would recommend. The food was really lovely and service was good and the unlimited deal was great value for money. The one negative I had about it was that for the unlimited deal after the 90 minutes you actually have to leave the table. I wasn’t told this and the servers allowed us to order 6 dishes about 15 minutes before our time was up. They then told us we had to leave and couldn’t take any food with us and that it was being thrown in the bin. It’s just so wasteful and if I had known that after the 90 minutes we couldn’t sit at the table and finish our food and drinks, I definitely wouldn’t have ordered the food. I would 100% recommend though and would go again myself, I just think the customers should be made more aware of this to stop food waste!

    It was a disaster! I raised a formal complaint regarding our experience at Inamo Covent garden tonight. The service was chaotic, very slow and disorganised. We arrived before 7 and we we able to sit down almost 15 min past 7. They said table is not ready. Ordering the food is also confusing. One staff is saying different thing from another. Seems like they don’t know what promos you are offering. We need to wait for more than 20 minutes for a diet coke! which for me is ridiculous! We waited for 45 minutes for all the sushi orders to come. We need to call the the waiter multiple times because of this and they were apologetic that our order got lost on the system. We did not feel it was an unlimited offer especially with the drinks that it took us almost half an hour just to get a refill of our wines! Yes we get it, it is a weekend, it can be busy but the restaurant is not even full! The experience which we were so excited about was a mess and a fail. It is our anniversary and were looking forward to this night but it seemed like we were expecting too much from what you were telling online. I believe you can do better than this. Good thing you have an excellent staff working tonight otherwise our night ended up a disaster. I hope you will learn from this experience because we will not definitely come back. What we experienced was not worth it of what we paid. The 12% service charge did not suffice. I hope they get back to me on this.

    The experience was definately different - none of us had ever dined like that before - it was fun and kept us all amused - the ordering system was very precise done on tablet and was very quick to come to our table. The mouse to play with whilst waiting our food kept us enthralled

    Overall vibe was fun for a dinner with friends, and the service was good. We weren’t that impressed with the quality of the food though. Some sushi dishes were decent, but other appetisers were often overcooked, or drenched in batter and sauce. It was definitely good for quantity, but not quality.

    Great time. Easy ordering process, good foof and fun games on the table.

    For all the high tech hype, you actually just end up with an iPad to order off ( which in our case ran out of batteries and had to replaced twice) and a table cloth that acts as a bad screen for some pretty poor content. If you were desperate not to talk to your dinner companions and your phone was completely broken, I guess it might provide some form of alternative entertainment .... but you would need to be pretty desperate. So with no score for novelty, we turned to the food. The tasting menu sounded interesting, but nobody seemed to actually know what it was... " It's random" was one suggestion. Its "whatever is being cooked was another". The closest we got was apparently last weeks version stored on a waiter's phone. It all felt a little hopeless, with the main selling point being "you get a lot of food"! Which given a "tasting menu" should be (even just by its name) more about the quality than the quantity, was not that convincing .... So we decided to beam ourselves down and go elsewhere. Perhaps we missed out on major culinary delights (?), and if you like the look of the menu you should give it a try. Just don't go there for tech or the novelty... you are better off on your phone!
