Squaremeal Review of Uni ?

First impressions can be deceptive: the large marble sushi bar taking up most of Uni's ground floor often seems underpopulated because its customers generally prefer to eat in the mirrored basement, where comfortable banquettes and discreet cubbyholes play host to Belgravia's moneyed set here for the vibe, the music and the "outstanding", beautifully presented Nikkei cooking (a mash-up of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine). Small portions mean it's easy to explore the full menu – from mini tacos with salmon tartare, zingy ceviches and tiraditos, to king crab tempura, Nobu-style black cod or popcorn shrimp with a richly sweet mango and ponzu dressing. If sushi's your thing, try the esoteric delights of the eponymous uni (sea urchin). Cocktails are the sips of choice, but there's a decent wine list for those wanting to linger.

    Hot & Chilli :: Hot & Chilli | food and travel blog: UNI, Nikkei gastronomic experience in London

    Peruvian cuisine is made up of various cultural influences that are seen all throughout the country. Japanese culture is one of those cultural influences, and the result is Nikkei, which is the combination of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine. Nikkei has become the most recent gastronomic sensation to hit the culinary capitals in Europe. The blend of the two cuisines has resulted into a gastronomic treat that is served in the best Japanese-Peruvian restaurants in Peru and other parts of the world.
