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

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
