Entirely approachable if not exactly authentic, this first London branch of the groovy Copenhagen-based Japanese chain has started well. Inside, it’s a huge, high-ceilinged room, with modern, sculpture-like dangling lights and swathes of bare brick providing an arty backdrop. Food-wise, the set-up is a sophisticated version of communal eating (all very Scandi and stylish) – although there are individual tables, benches and sofas too. The ethos of the place is sushi for those who don’t necessarily like raw fish, and the cleverly illustrated menu proves its point with pics of asparagus and ham yakitori (‘sticks’) or lamb with herb-butter kebabs alongside maki and futomaki rolls. The results look good on the plate, flavours are true and it’s inexpensive too. Tailor-made for some chic refuelling, although you wouldn’t choose it for a formal dinner.
