There are lots of brilliant Japanese restaurants in London, but CLAP really does sound like something special. This new opening for 2024 is based in Knightsbridge, across the sixth and seventh floors of one of the area's historic mansion buildings. Step within, though, and we're brought totally into the present day with sleek interiors and contemporary cuisine. 

You may have heard of CLAP before; its outposts in Dubai, Riyadh and Beirut are already an impressive hit, having been recognised by the Michelin Guide. The London branch promises to be a sensory experience with immersive dining concepts and wow-worthy interiors. 

When it comes to food at CLAP, there's a plethora of options for you to enjoy. For those interested, the team heartily recommend a traditional Japanese Omakase experience which put plainly means 'I'll leave it to the chef'. You can choose from the standard or premium option and wait as the chef puts together a selection of their favourite dishes for you.

Explore the live sushi and robata counters, and from your table flick your way through the extensive a la carte menu. There's both bites, such as black cod with baby gem lettuce, foie gras, citrus miso and fried kadaifi, and small plates like kale and shrimp salad with beansprouts, radish, karashi wasabi dressing, to get you started. 

As well as premium nigiri and signature rolls stuffed with the likes of king crab, wagyu beef, avocado and yuzu kosho, or salmon, tempura flakes, spicy mayo, tobi-ko, spring onions and sesame seeds, there's a delicious-sounding selection of mains to keep you occupied. We like the sound of the baby back pork ribs with homemade hoisin, toasted almonds and lime. And, if steak is your thing, check out the Australian Wagyu section which boasts cuts like ribeye, beef tenderloin, sirloin and tomahawk.
