                        Great new craft beer bar from the team behind The Old Fountain. Interesting tap selection, cool vibe, friendly staff. What more could I want? They aren't serving food at the moment, but you can order delivery to enjoy with your beer. A couple vegan burgers via Deliveroo went down very well on Saturday with a few pints of Verdant Lightbulb - excellent way to spend an afternoon.

                        Heard alot of hype about this place - maybe it was just an off night, but the sushi wasnt fresh (bit chewy) so really disappointed with the food. They're changing the wine list so most of the wines were not available. Service was superb though, lady was lovely. Ambience was fine. Probably wouldnt go back.

                        It was a pleasant experience. We tried the four-course menu (although it was advertised as a five-course menu on social media) during the Eat out to Help out scheme in August. The food was lovely and surprisingly filling considering the portions. It was good value at 50% off.

                        The food was great but our booked table was a small ledge by the window. The space for food was limited. This was not stated beforehand when we booked a table and put a downer on the experience. Very disappointed by this after taking the time to travel to the restaurant.

                        I’ve been in this restaurant 2 or 3 times, but this time we felt the fish was not fresh as it used to be. Even the service had lack of attention to details.

                        My wife is Japanese and hard to please when we go to Japanese restaurants it gave Nanashi her stamp of approval. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were friendly. We liked the food and actually ended up ordering some additional small dishes just to try some different things. The sushi was pretty well done. The portions were similar to what we got in Japan and the fish was very fresh. The table was a bit cramped and there was a huge puddle outside the restaurant’s door - and those are the only really negative things which isn’t bad!

                        We had a great time at this quiet, chilled, unassuming restaurant. These guys have made us fall back in love with Sushi again. The mackerel was amazing.

                        We had a great sushi lunch at Nanashi. The food was delicious and the service was good. My only less positive comment would be that the portions were small for the price. While I appreciate that this is not supermarket sushi, the portions were still smaller than I have had at other central London sushi restaurants.

                        I love Nanashi for casual, neighborhood sushi. The food is great. The sushi slider is my absolute favorite. Service can be quite slow at times, when when they’re not busy. So it’s a good place to have a relaxing, un-rushed meal. Prices are a bit high, in my opinion.

                        Crowded space, didn’t feel like I had privacy with my date, however the food was really good, made up for that in a way. Amazing booze too.

                        Food was great. The sushi slider was amazing - hands down my favorite item on the menu. The rolls are all tasty but do have a fair amount of mayo. The spicy edamame has a real kick! The service can be hit or miss, depending on how busy the restaurant is. And if you sit by the door, prepare for it to be pretty chilly.
