Very different from inamo soho.
Feels like lower quality restaurant. Only 3 sushi options, and food was very average.

I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone. We went there to celebrate my son's special 10th birthday as requested by him. But it's not the same as the Wardour street . This one doesn't have kids menu and the kids wanted to go there because they thought they can play the interactive games. It doesn't even work properly and not many games to chose , battleship was not there. The food was not very special and very expensive. Many items were not available from the menu.

Focus was more on the interactive tables rather than the quality of food and service

We had called the waiter on a number of times no one came over, portion of foods were unequal, no cutlery or plates handed we had to ask them, only two forks in the whole of the restaurant. Drink came close to the end of dinner. door kept on being opened and allowed cold air coming in due to waiters using the short emergency exit rather than the actual door.

Poor service, poor food,

Food was fantastic! Atmosphere was delightful, however at the time we went which was around 8:30 pm there wasn’t many diners around so to run out of cutlery was a shambles. I had to ask many a times for a knife and fork whilst my food was getting cold. I don’t think this acceptable considering what you have to offer. Other than that, it was a great experience

My wife found this place online by chance and very pleased to be able to reserve our table online. I did think the idea of texting the customer to confirm booking was a very good idea, wish more places did that. Arrived on time for our booking and showed to our interactive table. The ordering was self service via a tablet on the table and very easy to negotiate and order our food and drink. The service was very good, with not waiting long at all for our food. Each dish was absolutely delicious, especially the dragon roll! Definitely will be back as soon as possible.

The restaurant smelt very very strongly of cleaning products which was not in anyway pleasant. The staff appeared as though they didn't want to be there. The food was edible but not great. I have previously been to the Covent Garden branch and had a brilliant experience which is why we booked in at inamo when we saw it was close to the event we we're attending. However, following this experience I don't think we will be back which is disappointing.

I came from the USA to experience the concept. I made reservations via OpenTable for unlimited food and wine choices. Walk-ins get a price fixed menu. Overall, this is a great value in Camden, just across the street from a tube station.

Christina gave me great service.

If I lived there, it would be a regular stop.

Food was excellent, pan Asian cooking with a fantastic range representing all areas in East Asia, not just Japanese sushi.
A la carte menu was very pricey for very small portions of food. But the restaurant does many offers and deals which work out as fantastic value for money.

I went on a Friday afternoon, late lunchtime, and was disappointed by the ambiance in the restaurant. It was almost empty when we arrived, and only half full by the time we left. Would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't so eerily quiet, but at least that meant we had personal service and food came almost immediately after ordering.

Overall, it was a worthwhile experience, and the food was excellent. I would recommend to a friend, but would advise against the a la carte menu, which isn't to me, good value for money.

Overpriced, average meal. Appalling service from the manager.

Upon arrival the hostess was absent from the reception area. My partner and I entered the restaurant area and were abruptly ushered out by the manager in an off hand manner. We arrived at our table and were served several mediocre dishes in staggered succession, including Singapore noodles which were laced with human hair. Most shockingly, when I used the toilet, there was a woman trapped in the adjacent stall, clearly in distress and banging on the door. I informed the Manager that someone was trapped in the toilet and I was met with a blank, indifferent face. When I repeated that a customer was calling for help she snapped at me in a shrieking voice that she would deal with it.

My partner and I left the restaurant flabbergasted. Do not recommend.

Such poor food. Felt awful afterwards. Interactive tables are over rated - maybe good for children but would definitely avoid if you’re with just one other person. Food is so average you can definitely find better pan Asian elsewhere.

Sadly interactivity on our table took over 20 mins to reboot. In the end we were reseated and then the choice of games etc was very basic.

Overall very disappointed as the late lunch was very expensive too!

Manager is great. But his staff really need to up their game especially when they first greet their customers (really quite unfriendly). Using tech is great but just relying on a self service iPad was like sitting a maths exam and it’s no excuse to just forget about you

The food was tasty, especially liked the fried cauliflower! Staff were friendly and helpful.
The drinks were terrible, unfortunately; the cocktails were overpriced (£11.95) and served in plastic!!!! The beer was warm and the 'cold saki' was room temp at best. We were sat near the cashier so it felt quite impersonal. It's a fun experience, worth a try, but won't be racing back and would only return for the food - NOT THE DRINKS!

Although a couple minutes late, the host at the door was very welcoming and seated us at our table with no problem. Explanation of how it works as my partner had never been was clear and very helpful.

Food was not anything special. Where I had been to the Soho branch previously this was a major letdown. I suppose I should have checked the menu prior to booking rather than assuming the same menu. This place is limited and did not seem the greatest. Sushi was ok, pork was not ‘melt in your mouth’ as stated but chewy. We asked if they could add a little more hot water as it was very salty and it came back when our meal was nearly done and pretty much 80% water. My cocktail was nice although missing garnish. Just seems everything was basic.

Host kept telling his colleagues off, something to do with walk-ins. It was loud enough for us to hear and notice and should be done discreetly.

Having to ask for soy sauce when your served sushi and then only having brought 1 to share and having to ask for another just showed they didn’t have a clue about the food the restaurant was serving.

Quite a disappointment as the place especially from the outside looks amazing. And having had good experience from another branch then not coming back with the same outcome is a total put off.

The menu was minimal and over priced. Once ordered my selections were at the table within 5 minutes, which surprised me. Consequently, the food was not at the preferred temperature. We ordered 4 items with a drink each and paid over 70£, there was only 3 of us eating. Overall I was not very happy with the dining experience.

The novelty of the interactive tables wore off quickly as they don’t work very well. You are essentially left with just a projected tablecloth. The food is too expensive for what you get and the service was very slow.

Price for quality not very good. The sushi was okay but heavy on fillers rather than the crab/sashimi. I’d understand this if it was a lower price point but wouldn’t spend that much money for that quality sushi.

Saturday lunch had here and it was very quiet, too quiet. Restaurant was orginally picked for the interactive stuff mainly to entertain older children whilst we were in the Camden area. The menu was small and a number of items were unavailable making it difficult to pick for the fussier eaters. The technology also seemed a little tired and did not function efficiently so ordering was prolonged.
However the kids were entertained thoroughly by the gadgetry and the food that was available was tasty but given the limited menu, high prices and time consuming ordering system the whole overall experience was a bit of a disappointment.

Excellent service and good food. We went in a quiet evening, and were seated at the ground floor in a dark spot rather unappealing. First floor looked much nicer but was unavailable due to few customers, which is understandable. But we were later moved to a nicer and brighter table by the door. Only downside was the out of order A/C and it was a very hot evening. Overall good experience and service
