I have been going to Defune for many years and it is one of my favourite restaurants in London. Some have said that it lacks atmosphere; I don't think that this is true, it just isn't in your face jazzy, but to be honest I think it is far better for this. The food is fantastic, always fresh and such attention to detail. For a quick lunch the upstairs bar area is fab, and part of the fun is engaging with the chefs who make the sushi and sashimi who are always so interested in your meal and happy to help. We were once eating with my little sister who was about 10 at the time and she went in for one of the spicy tuna rolls, and went very quiet and stuggled to get it down! The chef noticed this and suddenly there were four rolls without wasabi just for her! (free of charge of course) I thought that was very sweet and it illustrates the kind of place Defune is. The tapenyaki bar downstairs is one of the best dining experiences, and fab to do with a group of friends. Again, engage with the chef, they are so keen to please and are so wonderfully talented. Ok so it isn't cheap, in fact it is one of those places where it is very easy to go overboard without really realising… but it is so very worth it! love love LOVE Defune.
