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

We went up to London from Bournemouth and were really excited for our visit but it out a real downer on our weekend. Service was awful and apart from 2 dishes which were great, the food was ubderwhelming. Barely used the interactive table as it didn't work and then our table wasn't cleared after our meal so no room to play. Totally disappointed and a massive waste of our evening in London

After reading great reviews of Inamo and it's interactive dining experience, myself and my best friend decided to try it out last night at the Camden branch. We were sorely disappointed.
First, we were sat on a cramped table inbetween lots of people when the rest of the restaurant was empty (at 8pm on a Thursday night). We proceeded to order food (using an ipad, not an interactive table - let down), and were told by a waitress that we could not order a £15 bottle of prosecco as we were sat inside!! Instead, we were told we would need to pay £34 for the exact same bottle - ludicrous. We asked to be seated outside, as the table inside wasn't even interactive!! Our food arrived within the next 10-15 minutes, but we had to ask twice more for the bottle of prosecco (the whole reason that we were sat outside, on the warmest day of the year, with no air conditioning). The food was average, massively overpriced - £10 for 4 spring rolls, £10 for 4 dumplings, and the wasabi fries were cold and tasteless. Between us we ordered 2 startes, fries, 2 mains and rice, and the £15 bottle of prosecco and the bill came to £134 - we genuinely felt conned, as this is what I would expect to pay for Michelin starred food and a 5* service - none of which we experienced.

I am sorely disappointed by the service and quality of Inamo, and will not be recommending this restaurant to any of my friends or family

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.
