Sushi
Opened in December 2016, in the heart of the most vibrant and exuberant district of the city, Temakinho Soho brought the irresistible flavour of Nippo-Brazilian fine cuisine to the British capital.
Inspired by Brazilian naif art of the mid-nineteen hundred, the interior decor conveys the idea of a virgin forest within the urban jungle that is London.
Thanks to an unfaltering attention to sustainability and ethical farming, Temakinho is proud to offer a selection of high-quality, fish-based dishes such as petiscos, tartaras and unique rolls.
Our dishes are the product of an ever-evolving culinary research by our chefs who strive to create new and surprising flavors, while carrying on the values of a tradition born when two very different cultures met, over a century ago.

Food was amazing but the service was quite slow, the place was not busy at all. Also recommend they serve hot drinks.

We had a lovely time, the food is amazing and the price is shockingly low which is always a welcomed surprise when the bill comes at the end. I’d like to thank the chefs for a meal which completed the day of birthday celebrations.

Service is a bit slow and the ceviche was too large and looked a bit clumsy on the plate. Good drinks list and veggie Violeta roll was delicious!

Food was excellent, however came at separate times and did not have the first thing we ordered, took half an hour to tell us. My two meals came before the other persons starter had arrived, general slow service. Waitress was very kind and nice but did not seem to know where the food was.

So disappointed. Food was tasteless and service slow. After telling the waitress someone was allergic to bananas, she came over after 10 minutes of serving a dish that contained bananas to tell us. She said this was stated on the menu, it was not.

Nice find in Soho. Really good food, extremely friendly and charming server. The only niggling issue is that the place closes at 11pm and at about 10:15 they gave us last call and kinda started shooing us out. C’mon man! It’s London at 10:15! For real?

An interesting fusion but nothing more. Sushi rolls were stuck to the plate so couldn’t be lifted without falling apart. Wine was overpriced, uninspiring plonk. Some dishes were tasty but nothing amazing. It lacked any sense of someone knowing what they were doing and played up on the quirkiness of the decor

Sadly, just fine

The sushi rolls were the best thing on the menu, next time we won't bother with starters (they were nice we had the prawns and bacalao, but for us better to just get stuck into the sushi!).

Staff were helpful and made good recommendations. Nice background music. Would definitely go back.

Note this one doesn't have 'live music' like the other worldwide Temakinho restaurants (in case, like me you accidentally read that on the website!)

Enjoyed the food and service was good too. Being a Brazilian themed Japanese place I was disappointed that they don't do "combinados" but overall it was good.

Great place - the food was lovely although the set menu was not veggie friendly which the only reason I've not out 5*s for everything. Service was great, the set menu is fantastic value and really tasty including a smoothie drink.

OMG the ceviche 🤤 and the sushi... 😍 Food is phenomenal, bursts of flavour with every bite. Ambience lovely, great service. Not a fan of the desserts but that's probably just my preferences. Can't fault it, will definitely visit again.

Amazing food!! Unique rolls and everything is really tasty. Often they don't have all menu items based on seasonality but that to me implies that the food will be really fresh. Service is super bad each time we go so don't expect much but the food makes up for it

Second time around a little less impressive than first but still serves as mostly a fun place to eat, food was excellent first time and strangely disappointing the second time. I’d reconsider some dishes, menu is perhaps too wide?

Not terrible, but not great either. Staff seemed new and confused, and unsure about most things (“Sorry, I need to check...”). Even while the restaurant was almost empty, the staff insisted on shoving more food on our table as we were trying to enjoy starters. Kitchen seems a bit amateurish as well, as a request for a basic green salad was denied with the argument “we can’t”. (Who can’t make a salad, particularly as there are many salads on the menu?). Food was OK, although the bowl my partner had was underseasoned, and the chevice I had could have done with cutting up the fish more (what’s with serving huge chunks of raw fish as ceviche?). The rolls were decent, although the sushi rice wasn’t really up to par. Had it been an actual sushi restaurant and we weren’t hurrying to make the theatre, the rolls would have gone back with a suggestion the chefs tried again, this time with proper sushi rich.

OK for a quick bite, but not a place I’d recommed or go back to.

Lovely welcome, delicious food but rushed end. Staff were friendly, helpful and on occasion a bit too keen to clear our table; taking plates we still had food on and were eating from. Bringing dessert menus while still eating the main course.

Temakinho looks great from the outside, the interior is visually appealing and the overall concept is great but we thought it was a bit mediocre. Our waitress kept forgetting things we ordered (the same dish twice) and the food was just okay. Cocktails are good and the price was very reasonable.
