We had a great time. The wait staff were really friendly, the food was phenomenal and really good value. The music was great, although a tad too loud for us. All over wonderful experience!

One of the coolest places I've been to in London recently. 10/10 for service, vibe and food. The cheeseburger spring rolls killed me.
We were just my brother and myself this time, but we're definitely coming back in a bigger number.
We went for the udon, but tbh the sharing plates themselves could be a big dinner, so we'll bring our friends and family to order more small things and have more things to try, haha.

Funky restaurant in the midst of China Town. Good food and creative Japanese decor e.g. manga comic stills on the ceiling. Playing soulful funk and disco music.

Love this place. Great reasonably priced fancy fast food. The burger is beautiful - as is the Chicken Karaage.

It's a lively place, but really easy to hold a conversation too. Will definitely be back.

We booked a table in the night of the Chinese New Year and we were afraid when we saw the door, HUGE QUEUE!!
Nonetheless, our table was ready for us (seems obvious but this not that usual).
The dinner was great, good quality and service, all in an amazing atmosphered music!
Will be back soon!
Btw, we paid £74 per two foodie people with a garafe of wine.

Excellent friendly and prompt service. Food was good (although I made the wrong choice and did not realise I was ordering sushi when I ordered Prawn Tempura). Atmosphere is great and v unusual - music perhaps a little loud for my taste. But overall, a great place to go!

The food is great, the service is slow but very friendly, except a few times we had to ask for the missing orders and send back cold chips, otherwise it was fun and satisfying. However, the noise level is so high due to the loud music blasting out of the speakers from the ceiling and people competing with it, the experience can be very exhausting. It's really shame because the food quality is high and the atmosphere can be much more enjoyable. But their mission seems to be high turnovers; to let people finish their meal as quickly as possible (if you are a couple you only get 1.5 hours!) so our experience was exactly that. Still, it's a good place to pop in (although you definitely need a reservation), it's definitely worth trying Wagyu beef Harumaki (spring rolls) and buns.

I enjoyed the lunch I booked for my sister's birthday however, I had one request that we sit somewhere nice with a nice background and we were sat at a high table squashed between two tables with no privacy. When I asked the hostess if we could sit somewhere else she said this was the only table, but when I went upstairs there were at least 10 suitable tables for us. Very disappointing in that respect and let my sister down a bit, but the food was good.

The sushi was amazing, really enjoyed it - however found the noodles a bit disappointing and my husband who had the burger said it was pretty average. Overall the food was ok, but the restaurant ambiance and service was fantastic. Think with a few tweaks to the menu the food could be as incredible as the place itself. Saying that I would go again, even if it was just of the sushi :)

Excellent service, good and the decor. Loved it.
Only small complaint would be that the music was too loud - it’s a restaurant and not a club after all.

Music was too loud for an early dinner. We were rudely told we had to leave our table as it had been more than two hours (we were a group of 8 and the main course order was taken after we’d finished our starters) then they took ages to bring the bill and turned out there was nobody waiting for the table so it was pointless!?

The food was fantastic and the restaurant is beautiful. The atmosphere was nice and the music created a great atmosphere, although it could have been a tiny bit less loud.

The service however was not good at all. We had to wait for a really long time to order, despite asking a few times. The waitress was then quite rude in her attitude. We did not feel like we mattered but more like a number, and i left feeling disappointed and unfortunately because of that wont visit again.

Was on a first date and ate here after drinks elsewhere - the food is incredible and lovely ambience. I would recommend being seated downstairs as it can be very noisy on the ground floor.

Had a great night, but many people were annoyed that the door staff made us wait out in the cold even though we had a reservation we were on time for. Then when we did get in side, we were told to wait even though again we had a reservation. Then we were assigned a random table even though we booked to eat at the bar. We were so hungry we just took it so we could eat. But the waiters were great.

Lovely experience, friendly staff and a heated toilet seat haha.

Starters were amazing, I’m craving the tuna maki and I will have to go back soon for more.

Burgers were ok not amazing, I would want to try the noodles next and if not to my taste then I’d still go back for the strangers.

I was sat next to the kitchen door, I would recommend no one sits there as you get knocked by the waiters and waiteresses every time they enter or exit the kitchen and that was often. This was the only downer for me, otherwise it was a lovely setting and relaxed

Love this place. Would recommended larger parties have a much more separate area to the rest of the diners, we had a birthday party next to us and they were very loud. Otherwise it was lovely, maybe large tables should have their own floor!
