From Jason Atherton, Sosharu in Clerkenwell is a Japanese izakaya-style restaurant and bar. Casual yet refined Japanese dishes are crafted from seasonal British ingredients, served in sophisticated, dimly-lit surrounds reminiscent of night-time Tokyo.

Classic sashimi, tempura and grill dishes lead the Sosharu menu. Sample the likes of chicken karaage with lemon, Asian pear and avocado salad with tofu dressing and cucumber and apple jelly, or grilled and raw salmon with sushi rice. From the grill comes grilled wagyu ribeye with ginger and garlic crisps, or grilled octopus with green chilli and yuzu zest.

Below Sosharu restaurant lies the downstairs cocktail bar 7 Tales, serving cocktails inspired by Japanese culture and philosophies. An array of sake options adds to the authentic Japanese feel, whilst a selection of world wines is also served.

An elegant blend of British and Japanese cultures and cuisines, find Sosharu London a 3-minute walk from Farringdon Station.

    Mediocre. Not bad, but not worth the price

  • (((** 29 June 2018 by Shawna from London

    Very good food and service but extremely expensive (cheapest bottle of wine was £55) and the tables are crammed so close together that it is difficult not to be distracted by other customers. Last time we were here they had very good fixed options which they no longer offer.

    Very easy to book online.

    Food was brilliant. Service was poor. (1) There was two of us, we were told to order between 5 and 8 dishes - we ordered 5 and it was way too much food. (2) There were only approx. 4 tables occupied in the restaurants and several member of staff but it took an hour and 15 mins before our main arrived which for a working lunch was unsatisfactory (3) It was expensive for that level of service and I would have been particularly put out if I had ordered 8 dishes and not been able to eat them for the price

    Place is nicely decorated, service is okay, but the food simply tastes quite bad... (from an asian point of view? The food is nothing close to the jap cuisine standard, but is instead some kind of fusion like dishes that I personally find them taste weird...) only the dessert is not bad

    Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Service was outstanding, actually it was the best service we experienced in a UK restaurant for a very long time. Every point of contact from arrival to leaving was spot on. Food was exceptional. We loved the tamacos they were innovative and delicious. Will recommend to everyone and will definitely return.

    The food itself was absolutely delicious, however I think there is a flaw in this star offer. Nowhere does it state that the 5 courses are to be shared between the two of you. The waitress explained that we had to share all courses and had to pick the same main and dessert which was quite disappointing to be honest. The portions were delicate and the cod dish in particular we didn’t feel warranted sharing as it was a mouthful at most.

    We left the restaurant still feeling hungry which was such a shame as had the portions been more suitable we would have left feeling very satisfied with such a tasty menu.

    I think the star offer is misleading and would recommend that it is made clear on Bookatable that it’s a sharing menu as it does read that it’s 5 courses each.
