"VERY GOOD"

From its bijou space off High Street Ken, this little gem of a restaurant foregoes the culinary pyrotechnics of its nearby sibling, Ocean House, to concentrate on simple, masterfully crafted sushi. Take a seat at the handsome, green-tiled bar or head downstairs to the sleeker monochrome dining room, and indulge in a menu crafted by two Nobu-trained chefs. From the stunning, melt-in-the-mouth Hida Wagyu carpaccio to a beautiful salad of dressed baby octopus, seaweed and cherry tomato, flavours are pin-sharp and ingredients second to none. Also, we urge trusting the chefs when it comes to soy sauce: items such as yellowtail nigiri and yasai maki rolls with asparagus tempura come judiciously brushed with the condiment to avoid drowning out other flavours. Saké is a big deal here, with regular masterclasses on offer, while the pithy wine list has some interesting options – although, like everything here, prices are on the high side.

Sat at the bar with the good lady wife, was a bit squashed and wanted the initial service to be a bit snappier but soon sunk into the flow. The food was terrific as was the wine ( although priced to match) – actually enjoyed this more than i recall all others of this type. Compelled to write my first review. They raced through pouring the wine a bit and obviously we kept pace! but meant that we finished the bottle too soon and didn't want another so we a bit out of sync. But i'm splitting hairs this was a great meal.

Very good food at this japanese restaurant with a slight twist (no soya souce). Get a seat at the bar and watch while very creative dishes are created in front of your eyes

The prices are high but the food is a new experience and worth it. The neon sign above the sushi bar says “No Soy Sauce” and it is amazing what a difference this makes. Truffle in sushi? Delicious and simply one example of the difference between this place and the hundreds of Japanese restaurants around London serving highly predictable food on a conveyor belt. The staff are young, energetic and have that healthy idealism about what they serve that makes for great food and a fun atmosphere.
