Essen OK, viel frittiert, es fehlt vielleicht etwas Raffinesse, für meinen Geschmack. Service sehr gut. Ambiente cool, dunkel, relativ laut. Alles in Allem in Ordnung, man darf nur nicht zu viel erwarten.

Food was good. It was a bit expensive though.

The lobster mac and cheese tasted very nice. Though when they say it’s a whole lobster with mac and cheese. I’m pretty sure it was just the whole outer shell and not all of what you usually get when you deshell the thing.

I was in town alone for the date, and chose to eat there because I love Japanese. The staff was very friendly, the food was not my favorite at all. And I didn’t feel it was worth the price for one person, especially since I didn’t particularly like it.

Had a great pre-Christmas meal with my dad. Enjoyed one of the tasting menus (scallops were the absolute best!). Great wine and nice service. We did feel a little rushed at the end (even though we were early) - but I'd still come back.
My dad (50+) found the venue to be a little dark and had some trouble reading the menu, which funnily seemed to be the case for others near us too (lots of phone flashlights coming out)- however I did not see this as an issue.

great ambiance, intimate setting and exciting cuisine. the cocktails are original and balanced. good value compared to comparable places in mayfair that offer peruvian/sushi/eastern cuisine. service was very good overall. lobster mac n cheese is great but so are the smaller dishes on the menu such as the squid, tempura and poke. we loved it.

The food is not worth the price. We ordered the £75 pp tasting menu and it feels like it is worth £40 max. I had another look at the menu today and realise they even missed a dish (grilled scallop ) ! Utterly disappointing !

Great food! Super tasty and will go back again! Great innovative cocktails too! We where a bit rushed to finish up and leave as the table was a two hour turnaround time - which I guess is the standard with several restaurants but didn’t like the rush - sort from that everything was super!

The food was really quite special, including an out-of this-world pineapple creme brulee. Our waiter was always on hand to offer personal advice and answer our questions. The only slight disappointment was the wine being a bit prohibitively expensive. Red by the bottle started somewhere around £40 if I remember correctly, and though the glasses we had was really high quality stuff, and I neglected to look at that part of the menu to begin with when I was booking it (so it was my fault it came as a surprise) I think there could be more wallet-friendly red wine choices offered. Absolutely no complaints though on the food front, and the value for money of that.

Went for a Birthday and from the beginning, service was fantastic. The staff ensured we had our pre-ordered halal food and ensured things I was allergic to were not in any of our ordered dishes. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed each dish - definitely will be back for the beef tataki!

Perfect choice for a birthday dinner. I don’t think you can do bigger than a group of 4. The restaurant is on the cozy size, it just felt like your sitting on top of each other. (unless they have private rooms) The food is amazing, I had the prawn tempura which was amazing. I’m still talking about it till today. Of course the whole table had the Mac and cheese lobster, this was just beautiful.
