Ichi Sushi and Sashimi Bar
This intimate London sushi restaurant is cool and contemporary in design with a choice of seating at the sushi bar, watching the skilled sushi chef’s or at tables throughout the restaurant. This contemporary South Bank Japanese restaurant is ideally located near the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall.
Awesome food and great service
Pre-theatre light dinner with my elderly mother and gluten-intolerant sister - Sushi, should have been just the ticket!
Despite there being only one other table occupied, we were, strangely, seated right next to them, at a corner table. The couple at the other table began heavy petting and discussing, loudly and in detail, their appreciation of each other’s bodily parts. Whilst the nature of their conversation is of no fault of the restaurant, I would have expected the staff to have intervened at the point of dry-humping!
The sushi was unpleasantly chewy and apparently not gluten free, due to the unnecessary addition of non g/f soy sauce to the rice, although they do offer g/f soy at the table! Just wasn’t our night.
On the other hand I can nighly recommend “Witness for the Prosecution” staged within the old council chamber at County Hall.
Really good food but a bit expensive. It is situated inside of the hotel so can feel daunting if you casually going to eat there.
Was a small venue but managed to sit at the bar. Great food. Nice service. Would go back.
we ate very well the service was great and we were served by a very good and friendly waitress (Claudia) I recommend the sushi was very fresh.
Very small and cosy bar and sushi was very tasty although a little overpriced.
Have been here a few times now and always leave very happy!
Very small portions for what your posting there are alot more sushi places in London, that serve a better variety and good size portions for that cost and could leave with a full belly.
Food was decent but overpriced! Two pieces of salmon sashimi that were 1.5 inches for £7 ?!Terrible service too with pushy waitresses.
Lovely attentive staff, nice location adjacent to the window, gorgeous food. Everything just right
Second visit, great location with views over Westminster Bridge and River Thames. Lovely food presented beautifully. Good range of drinks including cocktails and extensive list of Sake.
The Fatty Tuna was exceptional - slight odd seating service was pretty good aside from a slight issue with our order.
Worth a visit if you are in the area but not worth going out of your way for
Quick bite before heading off to the theatre. Cute and cosy, a good start to the evening especially if time is a factor. Food wasn't mind blowing but it is a decent standard and was enjoyable.
The first table we were given was two lounge chairs and a 18” x18” coffee table. I had to ask to be set ata proper table. The meal was part of a NYE offer with a set price of 95.00 pounds per person. Not worth the money. The sushi was not fresh and had a three day old fish taste. Service was slow and not very attentive. We had to ask for water three times.
First of all, the restaurant is in the Plaza Hotel, and it has a strong 'hotel feel', which you may like or you may not. The sushi was not good at all, particularly the dragon rolls, where the fish was almost minced inside. Overall, the fish didn't feel too fresh and portion of fish in the sushi was not generous.
Sushi and sashimi were very fresh, variety of options available. We had beef tatiki (very tasty), duck spring roles (average), Katsu Chicken (very good), selection of sashimi - excellent and beautifully presented, tender and fresh, section of roles - also very good. Staff were very efficient and spent the right amount of time at the table and offering refils etc. The restaurant is just off the bar area and very small. The hotel itself is a typical busy hotel bar. Therefore venue can lack intimacy for a romantic date location.
Good atmosphere in general but need some serious improvement on the service and staff management.
The soft shell crab was terrible, coated in a crude cheap batter and not crispy at all. The chicken kara age roll was very dry and tasteless, almost as if they had used some low quality chicken goujons from a supermarket in the roll. The salmon sashimi only came with 2 pieces. Very poor value and quality for a very high price.
The view, the service and the sushi were excellent! Loved it all from the started till dessert! Thanks
Very good, very tasty. Whenever I go to London I go to this restaurant. It’s always a pleasure.
Large group turned up. All tables moved so we were left a single four in a big space, felt as if we had gate crashed a party! Group were really loud and as a result our service was slow.
Despite my wife's resistance to hotel restaurants (which I think she doesn't distinguish from restaurants located in hotels), I decided we weren't going out in the rain to traipse around London not knowing where we were. It was a good move. The place is tucked very inconspicuously in a corner of the hotel's large bar and I had a moment going in when I wondered what I might have gotten us into. But you could have knocked me over with a feather when we were seated at the front window that faces straight up Westminster Bridge! Even with Big Ben covered in scaffolding at the time, it was a stunning view. We were starving and irritable so I have very little recollection of the various delights that were on the set menus that we picked (I also had a sake flight, ordering an additional glass of my favorite). All I can tell you is that the only thing left on the table at the end of the evening was a half eaten bowl of edamame (it wasn't bad - it was just edamame). I certainly felt that everything was fresh and pretty.
It took me a few moments to realize that the servers were watching us from a short distance for signs that we needed them and we looked like we were still thinking. But they were actually efficient and friendly in a quiet sort of way that we're not really accustomed to here in the States where staff tends to drop by at their convenience. A couple of men at the next table appeared to be having a business dinner but I have to say that I think Ichi is a viable date night destination, as well.
Good location, nice food, good service.
We booked a table at 8:30pm, but we were late for 20 mins. They still reserved the table for us.
Extremely nice staff serving top quality food. Definitely competes with sushi samba
Just very poor quality of food. Wayward service.
Muy buena calidad de alimentos. Pero el lugar es bastante ruidoso
The restaurant was very clean, and the staff were friendly, and the food was amazing! We were very impressed with over all qualities of the restaurant, food, and the staff!
Great sushi - fresh and delicious.
Food is very good. Waiters aren't kind at all. Service is fast. Prices are related to the quality of the food
Lovely food , well presented and very tasty. The restaurant felt modern and tasteful. Staff very helpful and friendly.
Service is good, we were assigned a small table but upon request they help us combine to a bigger table. The food is also better than we expected for a Japanese restaurant in an English hotel
The various sushi rolls we tried were all excellent - California, Hoisin Duck, Dragon, and others. So was the miso soup.
The food was excellent - once we found the place - but we were fifteen minutes late for our booking due to lack of and poor signage.
Lovely afternoon tea with sushi only critisism was would have liked more sushi less cake as was labelled as sushi afternoon tea but was very nice
Probably the best sushi I’ve ever had. Everything I ordered was excellent. And the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend putting this restaurant on your list.
Excellent food and service
The food was amazing!
The food was just perfect but the service very disappointing the,stuff coming to your table every 5minutes and tell you if can bring the bill because the kitchen is close by 22:30hr but we already knows that.
So I feel very uncomfortable with my guest.
Super professional very fast nice food 🥘 burn smaller than I thought
The food was very good (especially the chef's selection of vegetables sushi), but a very, very loud singer was in the next room with nothing to filter the sound. A little annoying.
