We had the big signature menu, and what a treat. the most delicious sashimi ever tasted, beef, duck, cooked fish, sushi and more. And a very interesting wine pairing including Keigetsu (sparkling sake) seldom found in Europe.

We enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant. We ordered the set menu which was well priced and delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful and the architecture inside the restaurant is beautiful. A great place to go for good food and a nice atmosphere.

a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
