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.

Very good experience, the store provides mobile phone charging, successfully for my evening voyage, food is very clean, staff are also very enthusiastic, there is a Japanese rigorous, I sit inside, the wall view is very elegant and chic, very like, the soy sauce dipped in sushi is very good, one of the COD gave me a deep impression, roasted, with very good dipping sauce, also Like a staff who asked me how to eat Udon, one of the tofu did not give me a very amazing feeling, recommendation can be tried, the price is much cheaper than Michelin restaurant, the food tastes good, I come from China, these foods are more like, the people of Britain or other regions may give different suggestions.

I love this neighbourhood restaurant that serves authentic Izakaya style food. The staff are super friendly. They seem to have a ow turnover rate which is always a great sign, and the food is always excellent. One of my favourite in London!

LOVE IT HERE! This was my mum's an my second time to Chisou. We are both originally from Los Angeles where you can find some stunning sushi. I now live in the South West UK so when I make it to London, Sushi is first on my list. The food quality and the service are both excellent. Would highly recommend. Looking forward to going back as soon as we are back in LONDON! Thank you!

Has been a local favourite for almost 10 years. The sashimi and sushi is always of an exceptional quality, staff are professional, know what they are talking about and make good recommendations, the wine and sake menu is very good and the ambience has a quiet buzz about it.

It’s crazy that I am writing a review of this place despite not having been admitted because they were closed. I was able to get a reservation for the 24th of December, spent money on taxi, and just finding out the place was closed. It was a terrible experience.

The food presentation was really bad, the place looks smaller than their pictures. And much more overpriced than its supposed to be. I ate in many sushi places and this sushi was very low quality.

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.
