With a central kitchen in view of the diners, Sen Nin Islington is a vibrant and contemporary venue serving authentic teppenyaki and sushi dishes, as well as classics from the robata grill. From the bar, sample a range of cocktails, sake, Japanese beers and international wines.

Serving traditional sushi, sashimi and tempura, the Sen Nin menu also offers an array of modern pan-Asian flavours. Try the aromatic prawn panang curry with lemongrass and fresh coriander, or from the robata grill, opt for black cod wrapped in a hoba leaf served with a ginger stick and caramelised lime. Wagyu beef with grilled mushrooms and wasabi sauce leads the teppenyaki options, whilst the sushi platter and grill platter showcase the wide range of expertly prepared dishes.

With natural stone walls and ambient lighting, Sen Nin restaurant is a sleek venue for Japanese fine dining. Serving Japanese-inspired cocktails as well as chilled and hot sake, the stylish bar adds to the glamour.

In one of London’s most vibrant areas, Sen Nin sits on Upper Street in Islington. Highbury and Islington Train Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    We had the 5 course menu with unlimited prosecco, all the food was delicious and although it didn't look like much it was very filling! We had Tom Yam soup, with all the meat Japanese tapas, followed by chicken and teriyaki salmon with egg fried rice. There were several awkward diners during our meal which meant that the waitresses weren't as attentive as we'd have liked, we had to ask for refills rather than being offered them.

    Great night celebrating Sons 21st birthday. First Teppanyaki experience and it was really nice.

    The food was a bit overpriced but good. There was cold inside and we froze.

    The food was decent quality but not outstanding. For the price of the Sunday sushi buffet (£12.95) you can't really complain, though! There was a range of different sushi options as well as katsu curry and noodles. The staff were very friendly throughout.

    A group of us went to Sen Nin on a Saturday evening and dined at the teppanyaki table. It was not a good experience. We waited 20 minutes before we could sit at the table as the previous group over ran. Service was very slow. It was over an hour after our original booked time before we had any food served. The starters were cold by the time they were served and not nice. The chef however was very good and the main course was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Overall it was good value for money with the set menu and unlimited proseco deal. However, the slow service and the long wait really spoiled the evening for us and we won't be returning.
