It was a real shame going back to a place I loved for so many years.
The menu is totally overpriced for what you get - measly portions and average flavour. Slow service, the 'interactive' tables barely work. I felt really embarrassed for the owner/ management. It was the worst experience I've had in my life. For out last night out before lockdown it was incredibly disappointing. I sent back the prawn crackers as I received about 5 crackers for £5.45. I couldn't bring myself to honour the order. Such a bad vibe in there, the table next to us complaining as we were. I felt so sorry for the waiters who were visibly ashamed in the place they worked.

My partner so looking forward to it but after being reminded multiple times by different staff members we only had an hour & a half with the table, they delayed us sitting at the actual table for 10 mins as the hostess couldn’t find our booking, even though I called ahead to confirm with the same woman that day.
The food was good however our bill as brought to us when we had half an hour left & we were told we couldn’t order anymore, even though we said we’d been waiting on an order for half an hour before, they then brought the food when we had literally 5 mins left & told us we’d have to leave, we hadn’t even finished eating. The whole experience was rushed, false advertised as we clearly couldn’t get as much as we liked. Please respond with a suitable resolution taking place

Warning: if you want to eat the unlimited sushi and NOT their strange limited all you can eat menu with bare sushi, you NEED to buy a coupon online in advance. I find this so ridiculously strange. Why do you need to buy a coupon to enjoy a part of the menu in advance. The manager was rude and basically told me that I could choose all you can eat tapas or a la carte sushi (crazy overpriced), but that buying a coupon in the restaurant would take days to arrive. I still tried and luckily received a voucher immediately so my friend and I could eat sushi the night before lockdown (which was our only wish). We're not in America, coupons should be for discounts in a nail bar, not in a Central London restaurant.

Noisy, dark, cheap cutlery, no social distancing, toilets next door to kitchen or food prep area - couldnt wait to get out. Food - very average, wine - awful.
In the current times using an iPad to order and a mouse to play games just seems wrong.

Really great time, staff were excellent and very friendly. It was a shame can only have table for 1.5 hours due to COVID restrictions as time flew by. A few items on menu not available that we really wanted to try that was a shame too. Overall very good, interactive element was really fun and cool.

Nice selection of Japanese and Asian dishes, ordered via an ipad at the table. Service was super quick. Projectors above each table project a variety of patterns or a webcam of the kitchens. With a small mouse like devise you can play games or draw on the table - great for kids of all ages! Prices were a little on the high side but the quality of the food was excellent though not to the level of say ROKA.

I had quite high expectations for this restaurant however was rather disappointed. We had quite a wait to be checked in and shown to our table and one there was how it works was quickly explained and then we were left on our own.
I thought there would be a lot more things to do on the interactive tables but just a choice of two games. The projected screen on our table was really blurry and the interactive clickers didn't work well.
Lots of food was unavailable and there was no dessert available at all "all sold out.
Food was a bit on the pricey side and could have got better elsewhere tbh.
We had to wait 20 minutes to pay our bill

Sorry this wasn't for you - and that you didn't find the sketch table app that allows you to draw on the table, the chef cam that allows you to see your food being prepared. We do value your feedback and will use it to improve - we will look into what happened with the desserts and food not being available

I used to be a big fan of Inamo. This time however, the service was the worst, and the food was just bland, plain. Despite having a reservation, we had to wait 10 min for the staff to figure out where we could sit. When the first food came out, there was no soy sauce, we asked 3 different waiters and it took 10min. The food was just plain, the bill however was the same. I don’t mind paying for good food, unfortunately this was the last time I visited the place. Such a shame as it used to be a go-to place when people came to visit.
