Robun pays tribute to Japanese author Kanagaki Robun, who through his 1872 book ‘Seiyo ryoritsu’ introduced the Western barbecue to Japan. The team specialise in a modern take on Yakiniku - the art of grilling which sees meat, seafood and vegetables cooked over a traditional robata charcoal grill. However Robun’s influence can be seen throughout the restaurant, far beyond the kitchen; diners can admire hand painted murals on the walls that give a nod to his contribution to the first ever manga magazine.

As far as the food is concerned, you can expect a combination of hot and cold dishes, including sushi with favourites like salmon nigiri, prawn tempura rolls, and kaburimaki with tuna, prawn tempura and avocado. Otherwise there’s the likes of small bites such as chicken karaage and pork bao buns, and a selection of gyozas for those after a dumpling fix.

Of course, the robata grill is the shining star here, and you’re certainly not short of delicious options when it comes to this section of the menu. Think lamb cutlets in a spicy Korean glaze, ribeye wagyu steak with truffled teriyaki, and the forever popular black cod cooked in a miso marinade.

To drink you can explore an extensive list of spirits, wines and cocktails that have been carefully selected to give guests a chance to experience the best of what Japan has to offer. Japanese whiskies are imported from well respected distilleries, with a variety of styles and flavour profiles that showcase the craft. For sake you can expect everything from fresh and fruity to unfiltered and rice-centric, ensuring there’s something for every palette.

Guests can also book in to the afternoon tea, which switches up finger sandwiches and scones for the likes of miso soup and mochi ice cream, as well as a selection of Japanese teas or a glass of fizz at an additional cost (with both sparkling sake and wine available).
