This place is terrible. Avoid at all costs. Overpriced gimmick. Service was appalling and rude. Wrong food delivered 3 times. After an hour we still hadn’t had half our dishes including simple boiled rice. Lamb was chewy. Paid £11 for 3 tiny chicken skewers. Absolutely awful

Over priced, average food, staff really didn’t know which table to leave food on, got food before we’d even ordered. Ran out of bottled water, juice, rice. The gimmick tables didn’t overcome the below average experience

Food was good, service on the other hand was appalling. I booked this restaurant as a special anniversary meal and it did not meet expectations. We got informed by 3 separate waiters that last orders were going to be called which clearly showed the staff were in a rush to get home. Whilst I was still eating, I got asked twice if I could pay, each time I said no I want to finish my food, this was just rude and disrespectful. Again whilst still eating, a waitress cleared a plate which we were not finished with as it still had food on, clearly the kitchen wanted all the dishes in as quick as possible. I did not hesitate in asking for the service charge to not be paid, the waitress then acted rude and disrespectfully. Overall a poor experience, such a shame as this restaurant had nice food. Will not be returning.

First time in this restaurant and will probably look elsewhere next time unless we book the unlimited tapas, the a la carte is very poor value for the price you pay.
Some of the food came very quickly ( noodles were cold) and some of the food never came at all. The food we did receive was very tasty, but it was let down by them 5 of our other dishes, reminded them twice, by the time some of them arrived we had finished, had to ask twice after that for items to be removed from our bill. The value is in the set price or get a Groupon deal.

Arrived on time for reservation and the table was not ready. Ordered using the tablet and app thre was no rice available as a side, although at the end of the meal when looking at desserts it became available.

Husbands food order arrived first which he had to start eating it wasn't that hot. Then came the drinks order, then husbands side order arrived with a few mouthfuls of his main left. Then my order arrived 1/2 way through this my 9 year olds order arrived (good job she was entertained with the games on the table).

Food was OK but we had a tastier hotter, cheaper meal at wagamama.

To summarise an interesting concept, but would be nice to eat together at the same time.

The service was awful. Did the bottomless experience and they tried to charge us £40 extra for drinks because we'd ordered them on the tablet even though that's what we were told. Sushi is bland and tasteless and noodles were brought out cold. Took 45 mins for food to be brought out and then we were told we couldn't eat it because we'd run out of time. Worst experience ever!!!!!

Food was overpriced for the amount you get, ordered food that did not turn up, I asked the staff twice to chase it up but it never turned up, however it was still on the bill, when I pointed this out when I came to pay the staff said they would chase it up again, bit late for that. I had to ask waiting staff several times for extra plates for my children and forks. Toilets were disgusting and had sick everywhere, staff closed the affected toilet rather than clean it. Overall would not return as the is far better Places to eat.

I booked through Open Table and selected the Bottomless Option at £45 each.
When we arrived, she couldn't find my booking after I told her my name and asked for a confirmation email, to which I showed her after a delay. She couldn't find the booking because she didn't ask me how to spell my name, just assumed it was spelt a certain way. Once the table was ready, we were told that the Bottomless Option had to be pre-confirmed before we dined, which I was not aware of as I thought the option through Open Table was an indication of what I wanted for the night. They were "kind" enough to allow us to select the intended Bottomless Option as they were not busy that evening. They also gave us a table suitable for 4 people, not the 6 of us, so when the dishes came, we quick ran out of room. I booked because I was interested in the interactive games available, but we were not given the devices to commence these games.
The wait staff seem to be quite new as they were not able to answer some of our questions confidently, and had to be corrected by the senior staff. We had the waiters be frustrated at our lack of room on our table which was not our problem-- they sat us on a small table. Food was average. Price was not worth it. Disappointing.

The food was nothing short of exceptional. However, we were left feeling quite disappointed overall.

We were rushed from our table from half an hour of our finish time. Our waiter was rude. Our waiter also spilled a large amount of soy sauce on my friends jacket (light in colour) and we were not given so much as an apology.

We also were presented with incomplete food without the appropriate dipping sauces and when asked for it we were greeted with a tutt.

Inamo is good fun to visit. The staff are friendly, and the food is good. It is expensive, and the time limit is a little intrusive. The food took a while to arrive, and some items were very delayed. It was extremely busy when we visited.

Another disappointment. This was a special occasion which was slightly ruined by the poor food quality and the very disappointing “interactive” tables. I get the impression things are all a bit tired at Inamo. There used to be interactive menus on the tables - now it’s a raggedy old tablet.

The table we sat at was only for 5 people but despite there being 6 of us and tons of available tables, the waiter refused my request to re-seat us. The result was we were too cramped and the children couldn’t enjoy the games which were available.

One of the items we ordered was ribs. They could have soled the bottom of our shoes…

Overall, for something which wasn’t cheap, I would not recommend. Spend your money elsewhere on what was a tired gimmick

The table projections are amazing and so entertaining for the kids, we played games mostly, and did some drawings. The food ordering is fun with the tablet and it arrives at incredible speedy time. The food quality is average though, if we compare with other pan-asian rstaurant.

It was ok but much too expensive for the ambience and the quality of the food. The sushi was tired and the beef yakitori pieces were too large. Was convenient to the opera but not sure this is one I would do again sadly.

The service wasn’t that good. Food delivered that was wrong and not even told what the dish was. Waited over an hour for the sushi tasting dish which when the cancelled and then it arrived with the bill. Food was nice but very small portions and very expensive. Drinks also very expensive, I’ve visited many restaurants in London and this isn’t value for money
