Flashy Hakuba tries to court favour in the environs of Tottenham Court Road by offering plentiful supplies of groovy cocktails alongside its trendy Japanese food. Well-meaning staff keep things rolling along, although reports suggest that they can be forgetful & even chaotic. Likewise, the food is rather hit & miss: readers have praised the skilful teriyaki dishes & the glistening sashimi, served on beds of crushed ice, but other creations are more flawed, with ‘overpowering’ sauces often failing to impress. Given that exotic cocktails such as the yamakasi (Stolichnaya, red chilli & grapes with Frangelico, honey syrup & lemon juice) are priced around £6, Hakuba is arguably a better choice for kicking off a night on the town – especially as the food is served in rather ‘stingy’ portions.
