SquareMeal Review of Sake No Hana

22

"VERY GOOD"

It might feel like being trapped inside a panda’s lunchbox, but beyond the swathes of cypress and bamboo there’s plenty to divert customers at “trendy” Sake No Hana. Perennially popular, it offers a vast menu that straddles the Japanese canon (and beyond), combined with a “superb atmosphere” and just enough pizzazz to make it all feel special at the price. The repertoire repays close attention. Start, perhaps, with colourful seared sushi or the umami riot of seared rib-eye beef with sesame dressing, before moving on to iron-pot rice topped with truffle and wild mushrooms or mirin-marinated black cod with yuzu, chilli and miso. A menu of this magnitude might expose weaknesses in lesser kitchens, but here the chefs are obviously well-drilled – especially when it comes to intricate desserts such as matcha pannacotta with mango sorbet. Saké classes, whisky and chocolate flights and a boozy Saturday lunch all help to maintain interest. “Excellent, as ever”, confirms one regular.

Three of us went for a dinner to try London Restaurant Festival menu. Restaurant is beautiful with a very nice atmosphere. Table is booked for two hours which is enough to enjoy 5 course menu. Unfortunately the service is too annoying and rushed, cleaning the tables the second you put your chop sticks down, literally. Our meal was served with speed you would expect at McDonald's. First three courses arrived within 2 mins from each other making the whole experience very rushed. Once mentioned to the waiter we would like slower service unpleasant look was given. It's a shame as food was very tasty but too "attentive" service ruined the evening. It may be because that menu is very popular but regardless if the table allocation is for 2 hours they should serve food more spaced apart.

I have only been here or booked this restaurant for others for lunches but it's a great choice for a smart Japanese restaurant in Mayfair. The food is delicious and exquisitely presented and I have always had 5 star feedback when I have sent anyone here. It's not the cheapest venue, but that's not what you want from a Japanese place and I would say it's definitely on a par with Nobu for quality. The service is impeccable and although it's not the cosiest restaurant, it's perfect for a business lunch where you need to have a more private conversation. I highly recommend it.
