The first obstacle with this place is finding it, so it may be worth noting that it is at the Oxford Circus end of Wardour Street and not Shaftesbury Avenue end as I'd initially thought. Arriving at lunch time is a bit strange as the interior is very dark and the infamous lit interactive tables arent really and functional until you sit down and begin to order.
The tables themselves are the key reason for eating here really… Its all a bit conceptualised and the fact the food happens to be pretty decent is just lucky really. Using the touch-screen interactive system on the tables, you can order food and drink, call a waitress (although it was faster to just wave to get their attention), you can play games and also change the colour or ‘skins’ of your table to lots of varied bright backgrounds.
But I ask you, is this really what you want to be doing over dinner??? Ignoring your fellow diners and fiddling with screen after screen of options? It can be quite tedious to have to figure it all out, and I did begin to wish I could just get a normal menu! The fact that we had to move because our first table wasn't working was also rather annoying but not enough to put me off the experience.
The food is your bog standard combo of Sushi, Asian-inspired salads and dishes and lots of interesting plates. Not bad at all, very decent in fact. They also do a good selection of cocktails, which is always great especially if you arent rushing through a meal and want to enjoy it. But then again, if you are planning on having a hurried meal, then Inamo is not really the right venue for you.
