Like its Wimbledon sibling, this branch of the groovy Copenhagen-based chain mixes arty minimalist surrounds – think sculptural lights, designer furniture and bare brickwork – with a sophisticated version of Japanese eating that promotes sushi for those who don’t necessarily like raw fish. A beautifully illustrated menu makes its point with pics of asparagus and ham yakitori (‘sticks’) or signature beef tataki alongside jewel-like sushi sharing platters. The results are intended to look good on the plate and flavours don’t disappoint either: witness skewers of melting miso-marinated black cod and subtly spiced ‘coal crab’ futomaki with crunchy softshell crab, black rice and sweet unagi sauce. Well-chosen wines, saké and stylish Asian cocktails lend support; while pretty deserts such as lemon yuzu meringue make clever use of exotic ingredients. Tailor-made for some chic refuelling; also offers takeaway.
