Square Meal Review of Koji ?

After bravely relaunching their long-standing Parsons Green restaurant from upmarket Chinese to Japanese, Pat and Mark Barnett’s newly renamed Koji is quickly finding its feet. The plush interiors remain much the same as the site’s former guise, Mao Tai, while a new sushi bar puts a dash more bustle into the back of the restaurant. Ex-Nobu chef Nobuhisha Takahasi oversees the kitchens, and his elegant, light cooking stays true to Japan while taking in South America and European influence. A starter of diver-caught scallops topped with wasabi and avocado salsa was pepped with a slice of granny smith apple, while a zesty langoustine ceviche hummed with citrus. For mains, a sticky miso black cod was a superb rendition while tender Ibérico pork with Peruvian anticucho salsa was knockout.

  1. Koji Japanese Restaurant in Parsons Green is a joint collaboration between Nobuhisha Takahashi, the former sushi head chef at both Nobu London and Nobu Cape Town, and Mark Barnett, the former proprietor of the now closed Mao Tai Chinese restaurant. The Koji concept centres around contemporary Japanese dining, ranging from fresh sushi and sashimi being carved out at the beautiful sushi bar, to meats and seafood caramelising sweetly on the robata grill. On the a la carte menu is an array of modern Japanese dishes that draw influences from South America and Europe.
    Koji offers a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere....

  1. So it’s official. I have a serious obsession with Japanese cuisine – especially so if it has a little fusion going on. I love those western hints making their way into dishes or the peruvian flavours of a refreshing ceviche matching up with the flavours of Japan. Not only has my love for the cuisine spawned because of the multitude of flavours these mix of cuisines brings to the table but also because it’s just something a little different – it’s always exciting and evolving. Little did I know that only a short walk away from me was a new Japanese restaurant called Koji.
