Fitzrovia is an eclectic, bohemian neighborhood. It’s the place to discover the street art of Banksy, and the museum of zoology. This mix of influences echoes the creativity of the menu at Roka. There’s a full range of some of the best sushi in London, from classic California to the more inventive piripiri maki. There’s even a full vegan tasting menu. Always busy and for good reason, Roka is a popular destination for birthdays and other celebrations.

The word "gril"’ in the title might immediately make most diners think of steak or chops, but Gordon Ramsay’s line of restaurants split the menu between juicy meat and a small but select range of sushi and sashimi. Long leather benches allow big groups to enjoy some high-end meat and seafood together, while the expert bar staff whip up some thirst-quenching cocktails. After shopping in Chelsea, this is the place to unwind and enjoy some wagyu nigiri and edamame.

Delightfully situated between two of London’s largest green spaces, Nobu is a wonderful place to rest after a walk in Hyde Park or a shopping spree in nearby Knightsbridge. Minimalist and cool, keep an eye out for celebrities popping into this A-List venue. This place is a feast for the eyes, with delicately presented sushi laid out so artfully, it almost seems a shame to eat it. But do eat it, because the flavors here are even better than the visuals.

The unusually named Flesh & Buns is right in the middle of Fitzrovia, a few minutes’ walk from shops, museums, and some of London’s gorgeous gardens. The Flesh is meat, seafood, and veg, and the Buns are "steamed bao" with a variety of fillings. The Japanese flavors keep on coming with an enormous raw and maki menu, including plenty of vegetarian options. Guests love the service and atmosphere of this well-placed sushi joint.

Head just a little bit off Shaftesbury Avenue into Soho to find this "Western Japanese" gem. As is the trend in many modern Asian restaurants, Japanese flavors meld with more Western ideas, culminating in menu options like salmon tacos with shiso avocado, or pulled lamb with kimchee sauce. The one thing that remains pretty traditional is the maki selection, so those craving a California roll aren't disappointed.

Set in the heart of the exclusive neigborhood of Chelsea, Maze on Park Walk is a few minutes’ walk from many famous sights such as the Psychic Garden and the Saatchi Gallery. For weary sightseers who need to top up on some excellent sushi, there’s no better venue in Chelsea. Sushi Saturdays are the day to be here, when the best sushi meets bottomless bubbles.

Soho is the trendy spot in London to enjoy music, comedy, and even some amazing sushi. Inamo is a futurist venture where diners order food from a virtual tablecloth. Menus are "beamed" digitally onto the table, and after choosing their favorites, guests can watch the "chef cam" to see the food preparation. There are even video games available for the easily bored. The food is just as exciting, with diners particularly praising Inamo’s dragon roll. Don't miss this unique experience.

The original Maze, Gordon Ramsay’s range of restaurants aiming for fine dining in casual settings, is set in the heart of one of London’s most affluent and celebrity-filled boroughs. Hotels and spas rub shoulders with top restaurants, so it’s no surprise this is a good place to hunt down some succulent sushi. Maze on Mayfair shines on a Sunday when diners can enjoy the bottomless sushi bar with a glass of fine champagne, and maybe spot a famous face or two.

An experience quite unlike any other, Chef Paul Greening has created a Japanese urban farm, growing ingredients never seen in Britain before. This takes the phrase "farm-to-table" to a whole new level, as the tasting menu offers dishes created from ingredients literally grown on the premises. The three course "home-grown" menu includes Osaka style sushi, with salmon, avocado, and mizuna. Pair these flavors with the opulent setting of this Regent Street venue, and it’s clear to see why this is one of London’s top Japanese restaurants.
