‘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.
