AC was really high - we got so uncomfortable that we couldn’t wait to leave. Been to other Inamo restaurants which have been great but this one was lacking in both ambiance and service. Many of the dishes were unavailable. Overall felt neglected and staff seemed disinterested. Disappointing!

Having been to Soho and Lower Regent Street I expected the same system, so was disappointed with the scruffier setting, the ordering reduced to one iPad, the smaller menu. It was not memorable at all.

Me and my fiance booked a table here to have a special meal together. Having eaten at inamo Soho last year and absolutely loving it.

We ordered our food and 15minutes later my food came but still 30 minutes later my fiance's food still hadn't come! When we asked the waitress she said that food comes out as it's ready... we were the first customers in the restaurant and people that had come in 15minutes after us had all their food already! When it finally did come, it wasn't cooked well at all because they'd clearly forgotten it and rushed it. Absolutely disappointing and the whole meal was ruined as we didn't even get to eat together! And it's so expensive in there too! What a waste of time and money! Never again.

I booked this restaurant hoping that the slideshow for birthday celebration would work, the staff didn’t check beforehand and I got there and the surprise was ruined. On top of that I asked for a rum and coke mixed but they charged me separately for both!! I clearly stated in my request that we are vegetarians and they didn’t have many vegetarian main dishes as they had ran out of the ingredients. Quite disappointed with the experience.

I came here for a quick bite before a gig at Koko🤥, and was in and out in half an hour. The sashimi and maki I had were both good, and the service efficient. Personally I don’t like the decor, but the location was very handy for the gig.

We had a nice evening here and staff were friendly.

The experience over all was a little dampened by the tech not working properly, which is essentially why you visit Inamo, and an issue with the bill, where we really had to push back on with the waitress before the Manager kindly resolved it :)

The food was good, but found it was pricey for what it was, when compared to other restaurants we had visited.

We had a good evening at Inamo, just not what we expected / something special.

The food was fantastic but unfortunately for us the service was really poor. It was our first time at the restaurant due having been given an experience voucher as a b-day present. After being taken to our table and drinks order taken (part of the voucher experience) we waited 45 minutes just to have two drinks brought over to us. No body came back to explain what we had to do re-ordering food as per our experience voucher, did it come out automatically or did we need to order specifically from the iPad on the table? We had to ask multiple times and none of the waiters really knew what was happening. Others that had arrived after us had their first course and drinks served before we did. We waited over an hour before our first course was served to us. Overall the restaurant atmosphere was pleasant and the food was beautiful, so i would recommend based on that. Perhaps if you attend without a voucher you might experience a much better service.

The food was fast and nice however one of our dishes was forgotten and had to be cancelled. The front of house was unfriendly and not very welcoming. The booking request to not be seated by the door (as the meal was a very special occasion and we wanted a nice table) was completely ignored and when I said that we had asked for this previously on the phone they couldn’t be bothered to try to accommodate or fix their own error and didn’t even seem apologetic or seem to even care. Overall the food was nice, and the gentleman who received our payment was friendly but everything else was a disappointment.

I went on Friday and to be honest the experience was not that great. I saw they have really good reviews so I decided to give it a go.
We had a voucher of 4 tapas for £22. The selection of tapas is okay and the portion are good. However I don’t think it’s worth the money. In addition, if you are having the voucher you cannot order anything else from their normal menu.
The food was a bit too oily for us, it’s was alright in taste. With the exception of the sugar snaps, which tested like rubber!
In terms of the service, nothing special. It took a long time for our drinks to arrive and they didn’t even arrive at the same time. The food didn’t take as long, but be prepared to wait for a sugar snaps until you finished your dinner.

Food was very disappointing. If I didn't have timeout voucher I would have been annoyed to have paid so much as I couldn't eat half of my food as everything tasted fishy and I'm a vegetarian and options were lacking.

I'd been recommended inamo from a friend who'd been to the soho branch. I was underwhelmed by the experience as a whole. Atmosphere was lacking. Staff were not particularly welcoming, friendly or attentive. The female waitress seemed fascinated by me and continuously kept looking at me: not in a waitress checking in way but more in a curiousity manner. I'm not sure she'd ever seen a woman of colour before I visited the restaurant or so it seemed. We sat in the restaurant for a while and our dishes were cleared away but no one wiped the table so we were unable to experience the interactive games and functions projected on our table.

Food was nice but the vegetarian dishes needed more love. There were many items off the menu due to a broken steamer.

Over all me and my friend enjoyed our lunch but we would not rush back to the Camden branch of inamo.

It was good, the food tasted great. However, all the food came at once so some items became cold. My starters came alongside my soup which I had to abandon. The salmon was also dry so make sure you order extra teriyaki sauce. But overall the dining experience was fantastic. The interactive table was a excellent touch. Make sure when ordering, you ask your waiter to bring the items out when your finished with the previous.

I would highly recommend this place, the staff were outstanding and really deserve recognition of the excellent service they provided. Food was fast to come to the table upon ordering and was consistently good. I would also recommend the cocktails as they have an interesting and delicious selection.

Best thing about this restaurant was the interactive table that the kids could use.

No smiles at the welcome, told off when we said that we may not take the 22£ deal - though we spent almost the equivalent on the à la carte, and when booking the table we read that it was not obligatory to take it on the day.

Disappointing and not value for money particularly given the competition available who have super friendly staff.

The sushi here is pretty good! They have great deals that pop up to save money. I don't think I'd go here to spend the full price on the food though, as I'm not sure it's worth it and there is better and cheaper sushi elsewhere.

My biggest pet peeve re customer service is when service personnel blames the customer when it isn’t the customer’s fault. The hostess on Saturday night has got terrible attitude. I booked a table for 3 for 7pm. 2 of us turned up early at 6:30, which she kindly sit us down - we totally accept we may not get a table, so it was gracious of her to offer a table to us early. Then again the place wasn’t heaving so it didn’t cost her an arm and a leg. As she was clearing extra place settings, I told her to leave another one as our friend is turning up. She was visibly annoyed by this and accuse me of telling her at the front door that there was only 2 of us. We are very sure we did not do such a thing. She then proceeded to leave us with just 2 pointers, when there are 3 of us. Anyways, that’s just a minor detail, but I always wonder doesn’t the managers ever remind front desk to be friendlier, esp to guests who haven’t done anything wrong?
Overall - menu selection was poor, very limited options of food (our fault! we read review online and booked, didn’t check website beforehand!)
Price - too pricey for what it is.
Server - when putting another dish on our table, accidentally touched other food on our table with his fingers.
Tastiness - decent, but with poor selection, poor service, expensive prices, there are hundreds of other places in a London to spend your cash on, esp as Inamo doesn’t really like your cash.

I guess people turned up for the novelty table ordering system, while the rest got suckered into it by inaccurate online reviews.
