A word from Sen Nin Japanese Teppanyaki & Sushi Restaurant - Camden
Sen Nin Japanese Teppanyaki and Sushi restaurant, located in London on Camden's Pratt Street, is a hip spot to stop-off for a sushi-and-sake break, and this restaurant's relaxed, zen interior and excellent value-for-money menu attract a regular crowd of local scenesters, sushi enthusiasts and media folk. Everyone gathers in a group around teppanyaki grills in groups of ten, maybe orders a starter or two, then watches in delight as the chef performs, searing squid, meats, chicken and more. Sen Nin’s teppanyaki-style service guarantees a good show, and the theatrical chefs provide the perfect backdrop for first dates, pre-gig bites and fun nights out with friends. Sen Nin’s other Japanese menu specialties include fresh sushi, teppanyaki, tempura and soups with cocktails and chilled or hot sake on the side – we recommend the deluxe assorted sashimi platter, the udon gozen noodles with tempura prawns and vegetables.

Diner Reviews
  • "We took my husband's two teenage boys to the restaurant as they both loved sushi but had never experienced teppanyaki before. They loved the theatre of it and the food was fabulous! Would recommend this place highly!"
    dined on 26/08/2014
  • "It was everything I was hoping for and expecting. Took my girlfriend to the restaurant for a birthday and was hoping they would put on a show which the chef did. Cooked excellent authentic Japanese food! We went on Super Tuesday so managed to eat and drink loads. Highly recommend and would come back."
    dined on 26/08/2014
  • "We booked for a hen night meal - the seating is perfect for a party of ten. The staff were very helpful in confirming number a few days beforehand - I also really appreciated the fact that when I had two last minute cancellations, they were very understanding. The wait staff were very attentive (we were only one of two tables - 7pm booking) and the chef was very funny and good fun! He had good fun with the bride to be and cooked a great meal! It was the perfect dinner interlude and the bride had a great laugh. Thanks to all."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "We booked a table online for lunch with my colleagues. When we arrived, the restaurant was quite busy as it was a Tuesday (50% off every Tuesday for lunch). No one didn't seem to know about our booking. We waited an hour before being served, and were the last served in the restaurant. We didn't even have any commercial discount or voucher for that, even though the manager apologized several time. Moreover, even though the place is really nice and entertaining if you are sitted next to the cooking table (which we weren't at the beggining) the food isn't that amazing for it's price on the menu. Really disappointing."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Food was brilliant , portioms were slightly small for the price. But overall was a good show with the chefs cooking right besides you."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Food was good, ambience and the show chef were excellent . I preferred the starters to the main. We were sat at the corner of a table which meant that the waiting staff always had to push past us to serve the other side of the table. Staff also rudely interrupted conversation throughout the evening!"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "We got the 50% off deal on the set menu. The food was fantastic - if we had paid full price it would have been quite expensive but with the discount good value for money, we couldn't have eaten another bite. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, we went on a Monday night so it was quite quiet. I am sure on other nights the ambience would be better. The chefs were lovely but not as much theatrics as I have seen at other teppanyaki restaurants. Overall a nice evening though."
    dined on 04/08/2014
  • "The food was fine, but unless you are in a "hen and stag night" mode I would really avoid this restaurant. This is the US version of Japanese teppanyaki - a show off steakhouse. Music was also terrible and loud. In short, I will not go back."
    dined on 03/08/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food a lot, and the show provided by the Teppaniyaki Chef, but a liitle overpriced for the quantity that you get"
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "Pretty good overall. Chefs are quite entertaining and the food good average. But soup and house wine leaves something to be desired!."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Whilst the good was utterly incredible, every course a delight, it was equally matched with an excellent spectacle of flames, food and fun!! We really enjoyed our night and the chef was definitely the highlight, funny and friendly he made the evening what it was and for that we thank him!!"
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "The staff was very friendly. A nice dining experience with live cooking and very reasonably priced for London."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "A great dining experience with fresh food served in such an entertaining way. They offer a great choice of food and it is cooked to perfection. The waiters and chefs are very friendly and so we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would go again."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "My friend recommended about Sennin and it's an amazing experience. Good food and great service though the restaurant was fully packed. Nice atmosphere & great value for food. Very tasty food!!!!"
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "It was an early dinner with my friend. We seat in front of a cooking plate with nice street view by the window. Very friendly service & live cooking, I would recommend Sen-NIN as a great restaurant. The value and flavour of food is worth. Very friendly server & chef was entertaining as well. We will be back soon."
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "You get great food and entertainment, its a really fun night. + the mango mojitos are delicious"
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "The place was hot, and even we were sharp (we came 5 min before booked time), it was busy, so we had to wait outside. After 20 minutes, they seated us in the corner, with dirty table and ignored us for next 30 minutes. We didn't even get the drink! Place was clearly overbooked and under staffed. After that, we switched for Italian place, around the corner and it was much better!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "All I can say that is that the food and service was brilliant. The whole experience was very entertaining and it's a real treat seeing the chefs cooking infront of you."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Wonderful service food and entertainment. Wish we had a restaurant near us!"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "I loked the principle of a "show" during the dinner. but wasting food by throwing it to the mouth of customers should be avoided."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "It was a really good experience to eat there. The food was awesome and of course it worths the price, the staffs are really friendly."
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "We chose one of the teppanyaki set meals which, on paper, looked very substantial, but in fact was no more than just enough. However, the quality of the food was very good with great flavours and the usual teppanyaki show to boot. Busy restaurant, bit cramped, nice atmosphere. Very enjoyable."
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "Overall, the food was nice but pricey for what you received and no choice for the dessert? I liked the experience of having the food cooked in front of me, but I didn't like the fact that there were no vegetarian options included on the set menu. "
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "I would recommend this restaurant for a fun, informal meal. We had sushi to start, and then teppanyaki for our mains, which was cooked well, with a good level of flair. As others have commented, I have been to better sushi and teppanyaki restaurants, but if you're in the area it's worth a visit for good food at a fair price."
    dined on 19/05/2014
  • "Sen Nin is a great place for group dining and especially good if you're into a bit of entertainment with your food. The Teppanyaki chefs are a lot of fun and make this a memorable dining experience for all."
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "Title says it all really, it was ok. We booked a table for 10pm, it was empty at that point....on a Friday. Food was decent, nothing special tbh. 5/10 "
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "We booked for two and were wedged in at the corner than when we asked to be moved were seated at the back, right next to the toilets. Loud, completely chaotic. Great if you're with a few friends and don't mind the crush, not for a date or in fact chatting unless you don't mind shouting a bit. In fact, we left before even ordering."
    dined on 06/05/2014
  • "Very nice evening. The scampi was faboulus. A good place to bring your kids. "
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "Good food, prawn tampura a little overcooked but otherwise fine. £20 each for food and drinks with the 50% off offer on Tuesdays makes this one of the cheapest Tappenyaki places in London to eat at."
    dined on 15/04/2014
  • "Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. Good choice of food and prices very reasonable. The Filipino cook entertained with tricks while cooking the teppanyaki, making it a pleasant & enjoyable night-out."
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "If you are looking for something different with some entertainment thrown into your meal out - this is the place to go! Watch your food be cooked live in front of you and get involved! some chef more interactive then others but such a fun night - something different! Food was really good as well - and with the TT offer it makes it all the more appealing!"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "A lively Japanese "experience". Starters were lovely, but we had to wait for another group to arrive as they feed everyone at the same time. It's more for parties and birthdays, lots of high octane chopping and throwing things around. Main course, pretty average. Very noisy!"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Nice restaurant and fun chefs. We had to wait quite a bit for our table, but once the chef entered it was kinda fun. Been on better Teppanyaki places, but well worth the visit"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Food was great, chef was good fun, getting all the diners involved. No complaints"
    dined on 26/03/2014

  • "Had a really fun time at Sen-Nin. Very entertaining chef and good food. Great value with the 50% deal"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Superb service and quality of the food. Very freindly service and we all (2 adults and daugther on 17 year) felt very velcome and entertaint. Would absolut recommend the restaurant."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Sen Nin Japanese was truly quite an experience and with the TopTable offers on their set menus, it made it even better! The entertaining chefs showing us their skills with the tepanyaki was amazing! The food was lovely and fresh and all the staff were very attentive, they also remembered my guest who had been before. I would recommend it for a cosy dinner party with friends/family and will definitely go back again."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "I have never been to a teppanyaki restaurant but always wanted to. And this really met all my expectations and went over and above on service. I thought that the chef would come out and just cook then leave...i was wrong. The chef put on a show for us a little bit of crowd participation aswel including a raw egg and a chefs hat. Really brilliant time and i feel i got my monies worth aswel. Roughly about £55-£60 for 2. You really must go. I will be goin again for my birthday."
