Tucked away at the end of Beauchamp Place, a few streets down from Harrods, Chisou Knightsbridge is housed in a converted town house.

Serving a host of classically authentic Japanese dishes, the menu covers sushi, sashimi, tempura, noodles and hot and cold plates.

With an exclusive sake bar, serving bottles not available anywhere else in the UK, the restaurant is a haven of Japanese tranquillity and hospitality.

The vast majority of the food was excellent as usual, but the last course (Wagyu beef) was dry and overcooked.

Still one of the best and authentic Japanese restaurants in London and beyond in my opinion. Sashimi uses excellent fish and is cut to perfection. Hot dishes are also exquisite, from the incredible wagyu beef topped with foie gras to the roasted aubergine and not forgetting the king crab tempura. Accompanied by a great wine and sake list.
The venue is understated and quiet. Ideal for a romantic dinner or a small group. Eating at the bar is possible and quite enjoyable with view on the action from the staff.
Not cheap but definitely worth it!

A wonderful evening - delicious food, really perfectly Japanese - could have been in Japan - and very good service. Whilst not cheap - reasonable value for location and quality of food.

Absolutely loved it and would go back again!

客数の割にウェイターの数が少ないのかホールの注文対応が遅れ気味。白ワインは注文してから20分くらい出てきませんでした。現地の英国人ファミリーがどっと来たのでそちらの対応に人手を取られていたようですが、まずは参加者が集まってああでもないこうでもないと時間を使う英国人たちに同じテンポでおつきあいするならもう少し人員像が必要かもしれませんね。日本人は待たされるのに慣れていないので。

Stopped in for lunch with two children and were warmly welcomed. While there was one other family, it seemed more like a business lunch venue. Udon was tasty and the sushi was well made.

My first visit to this lovely Izekaya. All in a very nice evening with delicious food. Sake selection was interesting but with limited choice. Food order somewhat mixed up. Nice surroundings. Pricing is somewhat irritating but in general ok. Food quality was outstanding. Will definitely go again and recommended it to friends.

Although the food was really good and the location was stellar, I have to say that our dinner experience was rather disappointing solely because of the service. When we arrived, we were placed on a table, however, my mother who I was having dinner with, requested if it was alright if we could move to another table because the one we were previously at was too dark. And so, the server moved us and we ordered our food. Whilst waiting, our server approached us and told us to move back to our original spot because "an important family wants to have dinner and they always sit at this specific table". This was so unprofessional and we would have understood if there were a "Reserved" label on the table however this was a free table. This was definitely one of the worst dining experiences that we have had.

Always a winner and never disappointed. The service is great, very friendly and they always remember us from the previous visit. The food is a wide range of Japanese styles of cooking but everything is great. The sashimi and Sushi are excellent quality and they cooked dishes and particularly the Chef's recommendations which change all the time are very authentic.

Extremely poor service and miserably sized dishes for the price, even though when asked if the dish was filling the answer is 'yes, big enough for 1 person'. It took forever to get some of our group's dishes. Some of the people got their dishes way earlier than the others, which made it awkward and caused people to eat their dishes cold. There was no warning that dishes would arrive 'as ready' or at disconnected times. Some dishes that were specifically ordered as main and side arrived within 30-40 minute of each other. Will not go back. Even when asking for the bill it took at least 30 minutes.

Nice food and Saki/Plum wine selection. Tables quite closely packed together at rear of restaurant. Though there are some nice cubicle s for larger groups.
Expensive, expect to pay over £100 , for food for two with wine & water. But I imagine it is not cheap to run a joint in this part of London.
