Square Meal Review of Sen Nin ?

Occupying a sizeable space on an Upper Street corner, this Japanese teppanyaki restaurant presents dining as theatre. Places are laid around large, sizzling hotplates at which the gregarious chefs perform their magic (sen nin means ‘wizard’ in Japanese): chopping, juggling & flipping ingredients before tossing them into your bowl. An entry-level set menu for around £20 will get you miso soup to start, with rice, mixed vegetables & a choice of three proteins for the performance, while a ‘sumo teppanyaki meal’ also brings a selection of sushi, mixed salad, gyoza & spring rolls, plus cheesecake or fruit; tickets for this are £45. To accompany the meal (or fortify you for the performance) there are European & New World wines, chilled saké & a wasabi punch cocktail (the product of someone’s very febrile imagination).

    Rate My Bistro :: Sen Nin – Angel

    Last weekend, I had the privilege of going out for dinner with my brother and spending some quality time with him! He chose the restaurant and I was not at all disappointed. I was introduced to Sen Nin: a Japanese tepannyaki and sushi restaurant in Angel! Even though this was my first visit to Sen Nin, it definitely won me over! This was an evening of whole entertainment! We were lucky to be seated around one of the areas where the chef and the hot plate were. The food was fresh and cooked right in front of us...
