The staff were wonderful and the highlight of our surprise birthday dinner. Friendly and welcoming ambience, just what you need after a day of rain and a very grey London!

A lovely place. Service could have been more cheerful. Portion sizes are very small for the price. The cod was delicious and there’s an impressive selection of sushi

A stand-out restaurant close to the Victoria Palace Theatre where we went to see Hamilton after dinner at Uni. The food was exciting and beautifully crafted. Japanese with touches of Peru on the menu. The dinner was made especially memorable thanks to our outstanding waitress, Natascia, who was knowledgeable, courteous, yet unobtrusive.

Unfortunately, they had very little on the menu available due to a broken cooker. We left instead of staying and eating something that we didn't want to and didn't want to risk it with the raw fish because if the cooker is broken who knows what the refrigeration was like. Would not attempt it again.

Sorry to hear about your experience at UNI. Unfortunately even in small-medium size restaurants as UNI the kitchen has more than fifteen bulky equipments. And we only have space for one of a kind of some of them, like the deep frier. That means when this is broken we have to give the service doing our best but ALWAYS following the health & safety protocols. I will like to invite you to give us another opportunity to show how good the food is in UNI.

My mum and I are huge sushi fans. Uni was disappointing. The service was very slow and the more we tried to get someones attention, the less we were seen. The yellowtail sushi was fishy and tasted like it had been frozen for ages. The Salmon was OK. The Toro was terrible and cut really badly. The California roll was ok. The Uni tasted not fresh at all and was toppled over on the plate (super expensive to serve it that way). We were just unhappy, especially with how expensive sushi is in the UK... There are much better places in Knightsbridge which are at the same price point and the quality is significantly better. The music was also really loud. One great thing was when we told the manager about the toro and yellowtail he was apologetic and took them off our bill which we appreciated. Unfortunately, we will not try UNI again.

Food is ok for a pre-theatre meal, but the place is small, and the service is not efficient. We enjoyed sushi, but the portions were small.

Waitress had no idea on the menu and could not answer questions, and wasn't interested in seeking clarity from other members of staff. Some dishes very over priced and you can find much better value in central London. Restaurant was empty for pre theatre session, surprisingly for a restaurant with good reviews on a Friday night. No toilet paper in the bathroom, rather strange given it had just started dinner service. Definitely would not recommend.

Staff were nice, but I was quite disappointed with the serving sizes of the tacos (a joke) and the California Rolls - tasted nice. But was starving when I left.

My partners food was fine, and had no complaints.

Food is great, but we waited ages for our food, when we told them at the start that we had a theatre booking. Different starters came at different times. Difficult to get any waiters' attention.

Very overrated. Went prior to the theater, told the waitress when we got there our schedule, 1 1/2 hours time allotted. Were not served main course until we had to leave, so left as it was served. Took several attempts to get wait staff to take drink orders.
Miso soup was terrible, sushi unremarkable. Price too high.

Excellent food if a little expensive, but you do get what you pay for. Staff are friendly and acomodating and happy to advise on what and how much to order. Wine list is small but covers all the bases. Both upstairs bar seating and downstairs tabled seating are cosy but are comfortable and don't feel at all cramped

The experience was so odd and uncomfortable. We sat at the counter as we usually like to interact with the chefs. A bunch of young kids and no one barely acknowledged us. Our waitress was the hostess and she was efficient although not super warm nor friendly. The other staff were behaving like they disliked each other and didn’t want to be there which made for a very awkward, uncomfortable experience for us as diners. The good was decent - nothing exciting but unfortunately soured by this unnecessary tension that was palpable. I noticed they were fulfilling lots of takeaway orders and that speaks volumes. Food okay, service not so much.
