Yashin Ocean House was founded by some of London's leading experts in Japanese cuisine. Hosting an elegant dining hall with Edwardian architecture, the ambience is perfect for dates with friends, family or couples as well as solo visits. Our menu is centred on satisfying Japanese tapas and our signature Omakase sushi, also offering some of the finest delicacies in the world such as our exclusive Hida wagyu. Enjoy your meal with a glass of sake, as we offer one of the widest ranges in London, and can suggest the perfect sake to enhance and complement your dish.

Our sushi concept is “without soy sauce – but if you want to”. Of course, we can serve as much soy sauce as the diner desires; however, what we want to emphasise is the taste of the fish. Therefore, each piece of sushi that we serve is brushed with the right amount of soy sauce and topped with an accompaniment that harmonises with the flavour of the fish.

Lovely restaurant! Tables are well spaced with chic decor. Very comfortable and relax ambiance. Staff is knowledgeable, efficient and not intrusive. Food is of high quality, delicious and well presented. Not cheap but overall experience is worth the value. Highly recommended.

We were celebrating our son’s 5th birthday and had a great time. We had the special sashimi followed by chef’s omakase which, as always, was a delight. The kid’s menu included salmon nigiri and maki roll with edamame and fruit on a boat - best value sushi and exceptional quality. Finally, the whole front of house sang happy birthday for our son with a special dessert. Special evening from a special team. Thanks again!

My friends and I dined here on a Saturday night. The general manager, Emilio , is beyond rude, arrogant and extremely aggressive. I had to ask him to tone his aggression towards us. We were in shock how we were treated by him and we did not even get an apology. The hostess apologised to us on his behalf and he was extremely rude towards her too.
The food was good and our waiter was very friendly and caring. I would think twice about coming back though as I asked the waiter to tell the manager that he owes us an apology. Of course he didn’t bother coming over to the table to apologise. I have NEVER had an experience with someone like that in a restaurant

The reservation I had was for a table at 8pm. When we arrived the table was not ready and was still occupied by the previous diners. At 8.15 I asked why the table was still. To ready and was told that ‘the food had been slow arriving’. The table was eventually ready at 8.30. I had booked the table to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and the initial problems cast a shadow over the evening.

Worst Japanese restaurant I have ever been to. Not just the fish isn’t fresh, the way they cook the fish is a waste of food. They added too many ‘external factors’ for the sushi.

With such price point, this is not acceptable. I know a lot of people rate this place as a very nice restaurant, that’s only because it’s a place for fusion Japanese food. If you are looking for real Japanese food, don’t come here. The only nice thing we had in this restaurant is the Waygu beef and that’s it.

The food is outstanding - this is the best sushi we’ve ever had. However, the service was appalling - slow, inattentive and confused. The price of the wine was inexcusably high.

Dear Moon, at Yashin Ocean House we all care about our guests preferences, food or seating. At weekends as you could witness the restaurant is always fully booked and under this circumstances becomes harder to please all our guests preferences, despite all we try and sometimes we can accommodate and others not, we look forward to see you again soon, Yashin Team.

I cannot eat coriander and I told at the beginning to the waitress who served one of the dishes with coriander without telling me. If I were really allergic to it I would have had a very bad reaction and you would be in trouble. The level of service is very low and has always been like that

Although the place looks stunning and the food is good, the waiters are more busy with their own look and serving game than the customers they serve - the wait is appalling and I never saw the sign of the birthday candle I had specifically requested.. so perfect if you don’t care!

Terrible service. Having been sat down for an hour and just finishing dinner, the waiter came over and asked if we’re finished. Then said they had a seat at the bar should we want to move as he had people waiting for our table. Shocking service and very poor etiquette. Would not recommend.

Dear Lucy, I would like to offer my sincerest apologies to you for the situation you have experienced with us. I believe there must have been miscommunication between reservations team and floor staff, this is unacceptable. We strive to provide the best customer service at all times and all our guests are very special to us. I would like to ask you to give us a chance to win your loyalty back and offer you a Yashin Hospitality experience, let me know next time you like to visit us.

This is one of our favourite Japanese restaurants. We have been there several times before and it never disappoints. Even though it was busy, the service was seamless.

This is not our first visit to Yasmin but sadly don’t think we will return anytime soon.
An entire tray of drinks was knocked onto our guest, her handbag and leather jacket. Whilst the waiter was profusely apologetic (it was a mistake) the manager of the restaurant no where to be seen. Whilst we settled the bill, we asked to speak to him - looking for at least an apology. His comment was “Oh I was meant to come over but I forgot”. He did not care to ask if we enjoyed our meal, whether our clothing was OK or if we were OK ( our friend washed and dried her top in the restroom!). Instead he left it to his poor staff to run around whilst he dodged our table. Such a pity as it is actually a wonderful restaurant.

Dear Ms Emma, We are sorry to hear this incident has happened to you, and also surprised as our standards are usually no where near this. The duty manager this time didn't perform accordingly and we are sorry about this, and can grantee this will not happen again. Here at Yashin Ocean House we pride ourselves on offering high standards to all customers at all times. We have taken note of this and use it for training purpose. Again our deepest apologies, Yashin Ocean House Team

I have visited this restaurant almost 20 times now in 1.5 years and I have never had an experience as awful as this! Absolutely horrible and it was obvious the boss was not around. Everyone just kept on messing up repeatedly and then apologise. The waiter even drops two bottles of coca cola on our table. We waited 30+ minutes from our reservation time to be seated and got offered smth while we waited “on the house” and then they charged us. Service was slow (kept on apologising for forgetting everything). Only thing they know how to ask for is the tip. Food quality was very good. But again so obvious that the boss was not around.

Went for the Sunday all you can eat brunch. Great value for the quality produce. Went twice. First time was impeccable. Second time, different chefs, poor rice and rolls were too soft, falling apart. Quality of fish was good both times.

Beautiful and spacious. A tad too quiet because its quite a large space and was not very busy the night we went. Also there is no signage outside the restaurant so really easy to miss it. Portions of the robata were quite small compared to similar priced and pedigree restaurants

I was offered a reservation at 2pm for lunch. We were made to feel very rushed: we were made to order within 5 minutes of sitting down and rather than being able to graze through their menu at leisure, we were told we had one opportunity to order and that was it. It was a shame, as we would have ordered more if given the opportunity. They were overly quick to clear tables, even at one point removing plates for a dish we hadn't completely finished. I felt sad that this experience cost £100. The food was good, but you can get equally good food with way better service elsewhere.
