We decide to reserve a slot in this restaurant to have dinner and it was nice the idea to go somewhere to have fun eating and playing board games.

The receptionists before even showing us the table and with our coats on next to the entrance door asked us what we wanted to drink, there was not even a drink list at the entrance so we had no idea about it.
We didn't also understand why she asked us about our allergies if at the end we had to report to every waiter our dietary requirements every single time we wanted to order a dish.
Waiters coming and going every ten minutes, asking if they could remove plates when they were full and we were still chewing.

The cherry on the cake was at the end of our experience: half restaurant empty at 9 pm they brought us the bill standing with the pdq machine next to us while we were still enjoying our drink.
Not the best experience you could do in London, sorry guys.

Service:
When we entered the restaurant we had to wait several minutes before one of the multiple staff realised we were there. I was then asked what i had booked (I didn't understand this seeing as I had to specify when I booked the table), there was no recognition that we had booked for our anniversary, again specified on the booking. There was copious staff milling around around restaurant but no one seemed to actually be serving. When you needed attention you were supposed to press the button on the ipad on the table but this was ignored. When I asked a question about the menu the staff member literally sighed at me before answering, as though I should have already known.
Food:
We booked the afternoon sushi tea and though the food was good it was very small for two people, we ended up buying more food elsewhere a few hours later. The desserts were good but were obviously just frozen and defrosted when needed. It was absolutely not £50 worth of food, especially considering other afternoon teas in London where you can get refills of anything. The tea options were only black, red or green and black was not available.
Atmosphere:
The restaurant was down a dingy side street where we had to dodge commercial bins to get in. It was very dark inside which would be an issue for those with sight impairments. The tables did have an interactive projector where you could doodle or play games which was an interesting and unique touch.

Overall:
We were really looking forward to this meal and were very disappointed, especially as we had travelled to London especially. We would not recommend it and would not go back.

Booked online with request to have a birthday candle for my daughter during dessert. The receptionist confirmed that a candle will be available. The food ordering via tablet was explained thoroughly, unfortunately the waiters kept bringing food in our table that we hadn't ordered and I had to keep reminding them about what we have ordered. We had finished eating our main course but the two dishes we ordered still not available. The 4 desserts we ordered only 2 were given for some unknown excuses as I had shown in the tablet that it was ordered first. When I asked about the candle the waiter said they were not informed and it was not available and apologised saying that the 3rd dessert will not be charged because of this but the 4th dessert had to be cancelled as it will take a while to make. I apologised to my daughter about not having her birthday dessert and candle and she was OK with it saying that it was a busy restaurant. The bill was paid by my husband, £225, without having the 3rd dessert yet and my daughter & I decided to go to the loo as can't wait for the 3rd dessert anymore. We waited for more than 30 minutes for it and bill was paid already and they didn't charge it. Apparently whilst we were in the loo the waiters came to our table and sang happy birthday with a candle!!! Hubby told them we were in the loo as not expecting it anymore!!! Hubby was laughing about it and a waiter approached me apologising profusely and even offered me a project to go but we refused as we don't drink alcohol. He offered then to refund 50% of our bill stating it will be taken from his pay. Yes the service was abysmal but we ate the food we ordered though not all were available, so we refused to have our bill refunded. Hopefully the management will provide quality assured training to all their waiters so this incident will not happen again as they will be losing customers if these kind of services continue.

Imagine a darkened room, projected images onto the tabletop, touch screen ordering, too dark to actually see the food. A bit gimmicky and certainly overpriced. The food wasn’t bad and the service was polite enough, but would I go there again? No. Can I get better Japanese / Asian cuisine elsewhere for better value? Easily yes.

I rarely write reviews, but something went very wrong here!
Pre-booked afternoon tea, and confirmed it again at check in when asked to choose meat or veg options on arrival. Also confirmed 1h unlimited bubbles with a server 10 minutes after being seated. We were told the table was due back in 90 minutes.
Our food hadn't arrived 40 minutes after being seated, and the kids were starving. When we asked about the afternoon tea, we were told that it was coming, and to select 3-4 things from their unlimited sushi menu free of charge while waiting. Two glasses of prosecco arrived around 45 minutes after being seated, and the extra food arrived after 50 minutes. No further bubbles were offered. The original afternoon tea arrived with 30 minutes to go until our table had to be vacated. We were presented with a bill 20 minutes after that. Having expressed our disappointment, drinks were taken off the bill, but we still paid ~£90 for two adults and two 6 year olds for the most disorganised meal we have ever had!
Hopefully the restaurant can look into why this happened and prevent it from happening again in the future.

Good food and the servers were quick and attentive but when it came to paying it all got a little confusing as when we arrived, the receptionist recommended we upgrade for an extra £5 but when the bill came, it was a lot more then expected. Would recommend, just make sure you and your server know what menu you’re going for. The food is really delicious and the interactive tables are a lot of fun

Unfortunately, the food was ok, nothing special.
We had to keep asking for our dessert and we received only one.
The waiter could not answer our simple question about lemonade if they are making it in the restaurant or if they aren’t.
It was very chaotic and the music was definitely to loud.

Was lovely food and a lovely atmosphere but I was disappointed that my food was forgotten about so when it did arrive the others in the party had finished theirs . I had to chase mine up twice and there was absolutely no apology offered :( We booked this table for a special occasion and you know what it’s like when your constantly watching and waiting for the last meal to come out - you can’t really enjoy it . An apology was all I was after really and it never came . Shame as it’s a lovely restaurant

Responded a day ago

Thank you for your generally kind words. We'd like to offer our apologies now regarding the delay on your food. The team should kindly advise that we suggest guests share dishes as they arrive at the table when ready from the kitchen, though some guests naturally do not wish to do that, and it sounds as though there was a problem with the dish you ordered. We're very sorry for that. We do hope you'll give us another opportunity to impress.

Booked an offer for an experience which advertised 'lots of vegan and vegetarian options' - there were about 3 things on the 'bottomless menu' for my daughter - everything else not available. Eventually a waitress did give my daughter a curry instead but it wasn't good and she left all of it. On top of this a bill (not ours) was slammed on our table an hour after arrival. The place was noisy, chaotic and food patchy. Not a great experience at all for the money. If you want a special night out or even a decent one, go somewhere else.

We booked the unlimited wine and tapas deal. We were told several times on arrival it was valid for only 1.5 hrs. The first order took between 20 and 45 minutes to arrive and as you have to finish the original dishes before you order again, this is far too long to wait. We got several dishes that weren't ours, and didn't receive some dishes that we had ordered. The order selection was a lot more limited than a previous time I have been to Inamo. All in all, it felt really stressful as we had to eat really quickly in order to be able to order more dishes and was all a bit of a shambles. I wouldn't do it again or recommend the deal.

Horrible service. Automated ordering from a tablet was horrible. Drink selection was weak. When we ordered Saki, we were giving cooking saki which tastes like soy sauce.

Some of the food took a while to come and came much later than other dishes. They give you a time limit at the table and tell you about so that you feel like its a factory. Many of the people who worked there couldn't really communicate.

Very bad experience overall.

Came for a pre-theatre meal. Everything was overpriced for what it was. The sichuan chicken was ok but came out 5 minutes after we ordered which was strange. Sushi was only cooked salmon and not at all fresh. Staff were nice enough but can’t say the meal was worth the price. You can get much better in this area or nearby…
