Disappointed for my first visit. As a vegetarian I was looking forward to having gyozas but they were unavailable as well another vegetarian dish.
We were told that we only had an hour and half to dine, so we placed our order and the first lot of food came quick. In fact even before the drinks.
We then were waiting for some sushi and half an hour later it hadnt arrived so we asked the waitress for it and she apologised and it came another 10 mins after she checked.
Considering it wasnt very busy the service was surprising

It was a fun place to visit and kids loved the gimmicks of the games table and the ipad to order.
Food was good if a bit overpriced and service was hit and miss. Had to resort to asking for the bill as no response when I used the app.
Over all it was good, would I go back...not sure

This was my 2nd visit to Inamo: My first visit to their Covent Garden branch. My first Inamo visit was to the Soho branch a couple of years ago. On our previous visit we had a lovely lunch and I remember the service and food being great. Our visit to the Covent Garden branch last night was awful...

Starting with 2 industrial waste (wheelie) bibs overflowing with rubbish just a few metres from the entrance.
The noise levels were incredibly loud. We could hardly hear each other speak.

The automated ordering system was not that easy or informative (and 2 of our 4 main dishes were extremely delayed). The food when it came was tasty, but I have to say the menu was very limited (and some items were not available). Maybe the paired down menus was post Covid(?). I remember their being more choice(?).

Lastly the staff were nowhere to be seen: They never checked to see how the food was. They were not attentive about taking away empty glasses or plates. When they came to deliver extra drinks and we asked them to take some of the empty glasses/dishes away, they did not seem at all please. The dishes were removed with a strong sense of them having done us the huge favour/ service of clearing these items.

I also wanted some extra sauce and I had to go and find a staff member to ask for more... they were all standing huddled together around the corner chatting whilst the restaurant was crazily busy.

Horrible experience. Will not be returning. Not quite sure how they managed to get all the awards displayed at the entrance (?!).

The table was for 1.5 hours only so we had to rush eating and couldn't enjoy the projections on the table.
They do not allow takeaways so we were asked to vacate the table but leave behind entire dishes we couldn't finish in our times lot. Really stressful and wasteful experience-completely ridiculous!

The toilets ran out of water.

The food was extremely overpriced and not worth it. I ordered the noodle dishes for £16, they were enough for one person only. The noodles were not fresh nor very impressive. Completely overpriced, I would've been much better off going to chinatown.

Not happy with my experience, would not recommend to anyone.

Somewhere to go for the experience, but expensive. Teenagers loved it but my husband was less impressed. Staff were efficient but not particularly welcoming - that said it was a busy Saturday evening. It was too noisy to hear what they said when delivering our order before they rushed off.

It was also off putting that whilst waiting to be seated one of the kitchen staff walked past us, having just had a smoke outside, smelling less than fresh!

Food was good. Part of the food came out right away, for some of the food we had to wait 15 minutes and that's after we chased the order. Too dark, too loud. Food tasty but expensive. Not sure I would return

Very loud and dark (though understandable) hard to hear your self speak. Service was very quick and food was OK. The unlimited buffet time felt quite short and not much time to actually enjoy the gaming interactive elements of the venue. If going for the unlimited drinks it's hard to actually get these as you have to call waiters and its time consuming. Environment seems a little to fast pace, intense and quite overwhelming. Sensory overload for anyone who has additional needs. Would be better if halal options were available as many other food spots in the area offer this.

We booked this as a fun place for a family lunch but we’re disappointed there was no children menu and very little to appeal to childrens taste. Our children are used to Asian food but there was very little to choose from and no child portions. Service was sporadic And food came out randomly and took an hour to get our last dish.

Food was ok but didn't look like the pictures, some stuff was late/didn't arrive/was wrong but we were told we could "have it anyway". Games on the table were fun but we didn't figure it out until late on as we weren't told how to play them. We were rushed away from our table 15 mins before the end of our time.

Very expensive for mediocre sushi and other Japanese food but it was the best meal out as a family we’ve had for a while. We have children aged from 18 to 10 and they all enjoyed the food and the interactive tables. We enjoyed the food but it’s nothing special and somewhat lacking in flavour but the children ate it all so would rather that.

Good deal with the all you can eat sushi and tapas, however the wine was pretty bad and the staff were all not very happy. So made us feel a little bit uncomfortable. However, sushi and food was pretty yummy.

The meal itself was really good and prompt.

There was little social distancing.. we were given a table which was shared with another couple with no divider which was odd and not consistent around the restaurant. Other shared tables had a dividing screen. We couldn’t be accommodated elsewhere. Our drinks had to be requested twice. We requested something special for our daughter’s birthday but that didn’t happen and we didn’t pursue as the waiters/waitresses were no where to be seen. So whilst the meal was good - the overall experience was let down.

Disappointing, very overpriced. Felt a bit cheated. We bought the afternoon tea but there just wasn’t enough food we had to buy an extra 3 more dishes to feel full. The dessert was tiny - enough for one. They even forgot an order we made on the tablet and no one came when we called.
Only good thing was the atmosphere as it was quite moody and intimate and the table games were fun when conversation needed a little pick up.
