10 years go this was the greatest place. Now the food is averagely complex, ingredients are poor and service is bad (how a sommelier can suggest you £900 bottle of wine)? 'To avoid at all cost" list

Four of us we all had the higher price omakase kaiseki set, food was okay and very instagramable. The taste wasn't too authentic and it is just the level I would expected on a 2 star Michelin. When we were asking about sake suggestion, the...More

Fantastic Japanese Restaurant in the heart of MAYFAIR. All the food here is very fresh and in particular delicious lobster and a wonderful soup to start with whose name escapes me. Expensive but very good with a wonderful decor.

This is by far the best Japanese restaurant in London. Here you can taste and feel Japan. The fish melts in your mouth and the freshness is amazing. Highly recommend it for any occasion.

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
