We arrived at the restaurant and gave our coats to the hostess. She was very friendly and afterwards took us to the dinning room downstairs. We sat down at our table and we ordered a glass of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and a mocktail. Then we ordered our food. The chef was very friendly and had a lovely chat with us. The food arrived no delays. Flavours were amazing and quality was great . We paid £160 for two people. It was our anniversary and after they took us a picture they printed it and put it in a nice carton frame and gave it to us together with an anniversary plate with our dessert. Really nice touch. Overall we had a great meal and great time. Would definitely return.

Went for the Teppanyaki set lunch with the family. Fabulous genuine Japanese kaiseki mixed with Teppanyaki, matching great service and interior.

There are very few places where you can enjoy authentic and well prepared Japanese food in London. Most places are pale imitations with too much emphasis on fusion and other variations. Many places are simply too noisy and the service and ambience is not refined. None of this applies to Onodera.

This does not mean it is boring, bland and staid. It is simply excellent food, beautifully presented and served with the right decorum and with no unnecessary and contrived embellishment.

I booked the afternoon tea as a treat for my sister's birthday and the hospitality was outstanding. They had Happy birthday pipped out on the dessert and also took pictures and printed a card for my sister to take home. The food was delicious and the staff made the day even more special!

High quality sashimi and sushi. Food was beautifully presented. The black cod was delicious and was a generous sized portion. The black cod croquettes were a an interesting and tasty fusion twist. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Nice dark and wood aesthetic. On the higher end of the dining budget, but this is expected with most decent Japanese establishments.

Afternoon tea on Saturday was epic! Wasn’t sure what to expect from a Japanese take on a british classic, but was not disappointed! The food was amazing and the staff were fantastic. We opted for the free flowing champagne option, which was delicious - it turns out they have their own champagne made in collaboration with a vineyard.

Genuinely cannot wait to go back!!!

As a treat for our son and partner, we chose this Japanese restaurant from the review. They were looked after very well by the attentive staff. They enjoyed the food, which they said was fantastic. They had a lovely meal, and overall we were happy that we chose the perfect venue for them to have a memorable evening. Would definitely recommend!

This was my third time dining here over the last couple of months. We were late arriving but had called ahead and they were very accommodating. Went for a birthday treat. Food was great as usual and service fantastic. Cocktails were a little slow to come out but they were absolutely delicious so can’t really complain. Complimentary dessert and photo given for my birthday which was a lovely touch.

The best Japanese food experience ever had in a long time. My friends took me out to celebrate my recent wedding engagement, Ginza Onodera went the extra mile taking a picture of us and printed it on a card with their congratulations. Afternoon tea was superb with excellent tasty food. I will definitely come back.

Wonderful pre-theatre dinner in a beautifully designed restaurant with a sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere, including two exotic cocktails - really tasty starters including tuna tartare with crispy rice, where the tuna just melted - two excellent main courses of Salmon teppanyaki with a delicious sauce and tender Yuzu baby chicken. Superb attentive but not overbearing service throughout, topped off with some complimentary ice cream in rice paper on a lovely slate platter with Happy Birthday piped on it to celebrate my wife's birthday - a lovely touch, much appreciated! We shall be back for plenty more...

This was my first experience of Kobe beef. It was divine and well worth the £100 supplement. It had a unique taste which was superior to my wife's fillet. Overall, a super meal from the Teppan Yaki set menu. It was great to see the fireball ice cream back making a return, too.

Staff molto preparato, attento e gentilissimo. Abbiamo optato per cenare al bancone del teppanyaky. Lo chef ha fatto uno show piacevole anche se ai è limitato a cucinare. In altri posti lo chef diverte con evoluzioni durante la cottura.

Due pecche sono che il locale era vuoto e che secondo me il prezzo è elevato per le porzioni servite.

Quattro cocktail (fatti bene), due bicchieri di vino, un’aragosta, 3 king prawn, un filetto, riso, 6 tempura prawn e 6 rolls, gelato e abbiamo speso 350 Eur.

This restaurant was such a good surprise in so many levels. The service was excellent, every single member from staff was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was great, with background music not too loud, decoration very minimalistic and yet somehow cozy. The food was superb. I can't recommend enough the dry aged Scottish ribeye and the Black cod croquettes. We'll definitely go back!

My husband is a huge fan of Teppan Yaki so we booked the Utage tasting menu for his 31st Birthday and it was fantastic. The quality of the food was amazing and the ambience very relaxed. The restaurant made a lovely Happy Birthday plate for dessert and they took a photo of us and put inside a thank you card which was a lovely surprise touch. It’s a high end restaurant with prices to match but it’s well worth the money!
