Restaurant description

From the team behind Michelin-starred Hakkasan, Sake no Hana offers high-end Japanese cuisine with a fashionable edge. An earthy yet edgy interior features design from Kengo Kuma, whilst the sleek sushi bar offers a freshly-crafted selection.

Made using the finest ingredients, the Sake no Hana menu offers a signature sushi range, with creations including hand-rolled salmon avocado maki, or delicate mango and softshell crab. Bringing expertly crafted Japanese cuisine to London, sumptuous Sake no Hana main courses are served in rustic iron pots, with offerings like Chilean sea bass with miso, or seared scallops with white asparagus.

An accomplished drinks list at Sake no Hana in St. James showcases Japanese whiskeys and wines, while classic cocktails are given a Sake no Hana twist. Cool and cleansing mixes include the cucumber and ginger spritzer, or a sake-based ‘smoky plum’ concoction.

A legendary Japanese restaurant close to Mayfair, Sake no Hana is a 5-minute walk from Green Park Tube Station. Please note, the dress code is smart casual.

    Very good. Very professional from the moment we were received until we left. No waiting great seating and ambience. Great interior design and despite being busy not loud at all. Great menu and the food was delicious. The staff were very polite and professional. Joanne Huang and her team did a fantastic job.

    Some good dishes but definitively do not go there for the sushi rolls - they are mediocre. Service is also really slow.

    My dining experience was good. The best features of the restaurant was the decor, architecture, it was minamalist yet elegant and sleek. The food was not bad either, I thought the Chicken that I had was succulent and full of flavour, portion size were small but all the food I tasted was exceptional. Telling friends about this place!

    Great ambiance great food however the waiter looking after us was miserable no smile as if she didn’t want us there if we asked anything you got the impression she didn’t really care. After our food was finishing she got more engaged with our conversation and seemed interested not sure if she was having a bad day but if I wanted a miserable moody waiter I would ask for one kind of spoiled the experience a little on the other side the people who gave us our food were brilliant they asked how the food experience was with a smile made us felt welcome . I think we were unlucky with our waiter . Was it that the waiter thought less of us because we got a deal on our food with Bookatable ?
