SquareMeal Review of Aqua Kyoto

1

"GOOD"

As far removed from the Zen minimalist school as it gets, Aqua Kyoto does high-end Japanese with a bit of razzmatazz. Feel the vibe as you circumnavigate the central bar, past gorgeous kimono silk-padded booths, to reach the dramatic dining room with its showpiece sunken sushi bar crowned by an oversize red lantern. The clubby mood conjures up shades of Tokyo’s swanky Ginza district, likewise the menu’s luxurious bent. Go for broke by ordering king crab tempura with crab miso, Wagyu maki rolls and agedashi aubergine with roasted foie gras, or discover original creations ranging from chilli yuzu lamb teriyaki with Japanese artichokes to rabbit with green peach, pumpkin tofu and mustard ankake sauce. By contrast, lunchtime bento boxes and sashimi selections are gentler on the wallet. The terrace is perfect for a sundowner.

It is 5pm on Sunday, and summer is officially here and I’m not going to miss one ray of sunshine by sitting indoors. So when its more than 16 degrees outside, what do you do? Go to a rooftop terrace and enjoy life! – I chose Aqua Kyoto! (its probably going to rain tomorrow) I have eaten in Aqua but it was a while back, and this time, we decided to get some cocktails. I wish I spent more time taking pictures of the views, as they were beautiful and you can literally see the whole of London from where I was standing. The crowd is a little young; 20’s –mid 30’s and I would suggest going between Thursday’s- Sunday’s as these days seem to have a vibrant and buzzing crowd. My choice of drink was a pornstar martini made by an amazing Italian bartender, whose name I cannot pronounce but he did well. Very strong but yet so sweet! Next time I will definitely be going back to try their Sunday infinity brunch ☺

A beautiful restaurant with elegant and tasty food. The unlimited champagne deal is well worth it. The food portions are small, but very good and you leave feeling satisfied, but not full. Lovely atmosphere with a great outdoor area. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

Went here with my family (wife two teenaged sons). It's a big place - the terrace is nice on a sunny evening but wasn't open the day we were there. The restaurant is pretty noisy but that's fine if you're looking for a buzzy place. The bar is busy with people so it has a lively atmosphere. The menu is comprehensive, with some traditional Japanese dishes and some more modern takes on oriental cuisine. Some of the food was tasty but none of it blew me away -- except the bill. We paid £300 for four people with no wine, just three beers and one cocktail. The waygu beef fillet was £55; the sushi platters were £31 & £36 (traditional & modern) for just 22 pieces in total so more than £3 per piece. I've eaten much nicer sushi at other London restaurants for half that.
