SquareMeal Review of Chisou

‘A winner every time’, the ever-busy Knightsbridge branch of Chisou is a three-tiered offering in one smart townhouse, and covers all Japanese bases for a mixed bag of salarymen, local aficionados and saké enthusiasts. A textured stone wall, wooden booths, ornamental saké bottles and lanterns set the scene in the chic ground-floor dining room, where the menu features on-trend flavours such as rock oyster ‘shooters’, yellowtail and truffle sashimi, rock shrimp tempura and grilled eel glazed with BBQ sauce, as well as rich, complex Wagyu beef teriyaki with shiitake and shimeji mushrooms from a list of ‘irresistible’ specials. Upstairs, an elegant varnished bar dispenses more than 30 varieties of saké to novices and connoisseurs alike, while the basement houses a dedicated sushi bar serving ozone-fresh turbot, razor clams, butter fish, tuna and other raw delights.

As a massive fan of the Princes Street restaurant i cannot believe it has taken us this long to try the Beauchamp Place outpost. Dare i say that having been here three times in as many weeks that this is even better than the original! The chef's specials are unique to each restaurant and this chef certainly knows his stuff. The Wagyu Steak Teriyaki with mushrooms is quite simply excellent and irresistable – the flavours are rich and complex and well worth the premium price tag. Fresh sushi and a broad range of hot and cold dishes make this a winner every time – our favorites at either branch are the spinach salad (that is all about the dressing) and the stir fried pork kimchee. Word of warning this restaurant is super busy all of the time (except weekend lunches which are refreshingly quiet) so book or turn up early!
