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.

    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.

    Lovely food and good service, but the Stardeals menu was served as a shared menu. The "6 pieces of Sashimi" were only 3 pieces each, and for the "Choice of dessert from the a la carte menu", we were informed that we only to have one dessert between the 2 of us. All other items were served as shared ones too. There was enough to eat, but since the menu is not described as shared, either online or in the restaurant, this was very disappointing, and should be made clear in advance.

  • (**** 26 February 2018 by Elizabeth Bell from London

    Very disappointing, dreadful service to the point that we asked for the service charge to be taken off. We ordered the set menu and the food was so slow to arrive (over 50 minute wait for the first course) we had to leave to catch a last train before the dessert course. I would never eat here again, there are so many better restaurants around in the price range.

    I really enjoyed the experience, the food was fantastic and really combined traditional Japanese cooking with a modern flair. They were served at a relaxing pace meaning my companion and I was able to have a great dining experience whilst maintaining a conversation. The staff were professional and friendly, knowing exactly when to serve and clean up the dishes. One downside was that the restaurant did feel a little crowded as we were situated right next to the bar, which also made it a little loud. But all in all, a great dining experience and would absolutely recommend.
