Great treat! A really fun dining experience particularly with teens. Food ok, but you wouldn't end up there on account of it. Quite pricey, but would recommend for a special family dinner

Terrible service. They give you an hour and half time slot for the table even though they said we could wait at the bar. Then forgot to bring what we had ordered as starters and then chased us to order our mains. Cleared glasses, plates and bowls away while we were still eating, then put the bill down in the middle of our meal with a £20 service charge added and hovered behind us with a card reader while we were still eating. The interactive tables are a fun idea but what's the point when u hardly get to use them which such strict time slots. Food was mediocre compared to the expensive prices and small portions.

really nice place with lovely food - its a tad confusing to order and you only get to share one IPAD between the group - once we had figured it out though it was great. Table was fun , you could write on it and play games - really provoked interaction for the group.

Very over priced, food was ok but not worth the price and we left hungry after spending £95 and only having 1 drink each. Not much selection at all for gluten free. Also the table we had didn’t work properly so we couldn’t play games/ use the screen on the table at all. Wouldn’t recommend

Food was really good but service needs to be worked on tremendously. We are visiting from the states and haven't been back but they really let their technology and service go to the crapper. When we walked it we weren't greeted and it seemed like we were bothering them just by being there. The server was no where to be found and didn't call when we ran on the tablet, which brings me to the tablet. They gave us a screen shattered one, they dont have backups? The interactive table was broken on one side. However like I said the food was good but definitely not worth the price if the other things I mentioned are subpar. Could have just went for takeout. Thanks for nothing!

The food here was good but over priced for what you got. There are other places which have nicer food at a more reasonable price. The variety of food was also limited, and a lot of the food was "not available". I ordered some Korean wings, and I wasnt even provided with a finger bowl. I asked one of the waiters and the best she could come up with is a paper towel. I mean you even get wipes in KFC so this was very disappointing. Not wanting to put a dampener on things I thought I would go to the gents and wash my hands there. You wouldn't believe it, no hand wash! The toilets were also very dark and dingy. For the money I would expect a lot more.

We were sadly underwhelmed with Inamo. The choice of dishes was surprisingly limited and the ordering process on the tablet was painfully slow because there was only one tablet per table and no separate menus. The food itself was pretty poor (greasy noodles, dry tasteless popcorn scallops) and the interactive tables were a bit of a letdown - quite a limited choice of activities, and what we didn't realise is that the whole table has to do the same activity, leading to a frustrating experience for our children. We wouldn't return.

Had a really great meal here on Saturday evening. The service was incredibly prompt - the first dishes started arriving before the drinks! We chose the tasting menu as a table of 2, and had a huge number of dishes. Everything was delicious, and there was a huge range of foods. Only small issue was the 1.5 hours we had the table for wasn't quite enough, and as there was another booking after ours we had to hurry a little bit at the end. But our waiter (Livio) was awesome, and couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely come here again next time we are in London!

We ordered 3 dishes to share with a view to order more and whilst the food was nice the portions were dismal. We also ordered cocktails which were lovely but for the amount of food we had - a half-full ‘bucket’ of sweet potato fries, cauliflower florets and dim sum the price of £80 was atrocious, even allowing for it being central London - we got nicer food at a much lower price in 2 different restaurants.

Food was hit and miss, some good dishes, some bad. We were made to share a table with another couple and the iPads weren’t calibrated properly so their food came to our side and ours to theirs, then the bill was for both us and the other couple, waiter also told us to leave because they needed the table back after an hour. Have no objection to paying for good food but £5 for a small bowl of prawn crackers was steep. Wouldn’t return.

Very cold welcome, practically no explanation about the menu. Tables were all packed together. Table next to us had dirty dishes for over half an hour. Not enough room on the table for drinks, food and tablet. Projected images and mouse don't work very well.
Food very dissapointing, small portions, expensive. Flavours very bland.
12.5% service costs were applied on top of the bill, which makes it ridiculously expensive for a very dissapointing experience. Never going back there!

As a Japanese restaurant the food it’s quite limited, and there’s no service at all as we just order everything through iPad, there’s no one to explain how to use it as well. When we nearly finished the meal the waiter then came to our table to say they will need table back in 20 but the whole restaurant was empty, there only us and 2 other tables. Quite disappointed as our bill came £180. I wouldn’t mind paying that amount is the food it’s what I wanted and the service was bit better.

Hi - Thanks for reaching out to leave a review - sorry to hear this wasn't for you. With an extensive menu with over 60 dishes on the a la Carte menu not sure we agree with the food being quite limited - we have 20 different sushi dishes alone. We will definitely look into why the team when you sat down didn't explain how the order system works as this is very much part of the hosting which we pride ourselves on. This will be picked up with our Head Hostess and Restaurant Manager
