Our vegetarian take on this classic South-East Asian dish
Horrible quality. Inedible food. Sometimes was extremely fishy. Will never go back
Absolutely awful restaurant one of the worst I’ve been too the service was awful and I would never go back.
Overall a good experience enjoyed by all. We arrived 45 minutes after the original booking time because of the train strike and ended up having to rush a bit but restaurant tried their best to accommodate their situation.
Iv been to this Inamo before and had a lovely experience. However, this time the service was pretty terrible. The iPad menu system kept glitching and servers didn’t know anything about their own menu. We felt very rushed off our table as they handed us the bill before we had even finished ordering and we were well within our reservation time slot.
The service charge was a little over £9 and I even asked them to remove it because the service and ambience was so poor, especially considering the prices. This is someone I never do as I am normally an excellent tipper.
We also ordered the spicy salmon sushi which I had last time and it was almost half the portion that I received before, didn’t have the decoration and looked like they put the worst ones from the roll on our plate. Pretty disappointed as the meal in total cost about £130.
Won’t be dining here again
Food was excellent and the added bonus of on the table video games made the experience great fun
We didn’t like the food, the sushi specially seemed pretty prefabricated not fresh, and completely overpriced.
The table arrangements were terrible. Sitting groups of people on the same table wasn’t acceptable. But the food was okay and service after the table move was okay. Good valve for money though if you get the all you can eat
Had to send one dish back as inedible.
One dish not as described, mushroom noodles did not say had chillies in it, was very spicy, my mum thought they were peppers. She couldn’t eat it
The unlimited sushi instead, we were left disappointed and full of cream cheese; just about every sushi item on the menu has cream cheese in it, which, if you ask me, is a crime against humanity. The somewhat small wine list was further squashed by the “unlimited wine & beer” being limited to only the house red or house white, not the other wines on the menu — not something that was disclaimed beforehand or even mentioned by our rude hostess and clueless server. Several times throughout the night, our server would come up to our table of two and ask if three beers were for us. The iPad ordering system is a nightmare, the interactive table settings were glitchy at best, and the food was bad. I wouldn’t come here again. Ever.
The USP for this restaurant is the digital element on the tables, however this was not as great as I have previously experienced at the Soho branch.
Food on the whole was good, spoilt by one over cooked dish, really poor white table wine, service was good, although they forgot our drinks initially. We went all you could eat, only problem is you have to stick to a drink type, and if that drink is naff it costs you more.
One of the few weekdays bottomless buffet. Food was okay, some options were not available.
Fantastic service with helpful staff . Definitely recommend
Unfortunately the food didn’t taste fresh at all, as you could also see the colour of the tuna was more brown than pink/red and there wasn’t much flavour incorporated in the dishes and not really worth the price as many dishes were also out of stock
Overpriced! Food was okay but nothing special. Not a lot of chooses in the “a la carte” menu. Was there for the first time a few years ago and the concept was really nice but now it got poorly explored. I’m quite disappointed :/
The art/games table was a nice novelty but the food was very expensive and quite mediocre. 5 pounds for an average miso soup is quite crazy. A good Japanese restaurant would have been exactly half the price and much better quality.
Sorry to hear you were disappointed on this visit. We will pass on your feedback to our management team. We feel that our portion sizes and pricing are fair and have undertaken significant market research on other restaurants in our areas. We do hope you'll give us another opportunity to impress you in future.
The food was great but I don't think the waiters and chef liked us.
The Soho location is much better for families. Tables are individualised there, whereas Covent Garden is for groups.
Thank you for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
The food was so disappointing.
Interactive table fun.
Sorry to hear you were disappointed on this visit. We will pass on your feedback to our management team. Generally our menu receives very positive feedback, so we're sorry this was not the case for you on this occasion. We do hope you'll give us another opportunity to impress you in future.
Thank you for your kind feedback, we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
It was really great brunch. Food service was fast and our server was very nice .
Some food was really good and some are not so good. Rest was outstanding
Fantastic feedback - put a huge smile on our faces to receive this – thank you and we very much hope to see you again soon!
After long time we had greet brunch. Service was fast and not to rush . Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good but not any special. Good atmosphere
Thank you for your kind feedback, we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
We order the all you can eat but we're almost finalising the first round of food without having the drinks even aftaer asking 5 times. Only one employee was helpful.
I heard good reviews about this with regards to the animated tables. They looked great but they didn’t work all that well. The food was super quick which was good but made it feel somewhat like a fast food place. The service was appalling we had to ask four times for wine glasses where eventually I got up and asked the bar myself. Same situation occurred when I asked for tap water. We had quite a lot of food left over and like most restaurants I would have expected to take this back, however I was told that they do not have containers. Did some research to see that they actually have a delivery service. Not impressed!!
Sorry to hear you were disappointed on this visit, especially in regard to service which we'll pass on to management. Contrary to your review, though, we do not currently offer delivery with anyone, we did do up to about 1 year ago, but removed this, so we're not sure where you're seeing this, and this is why we do not stock takeaway containers.
They don't disclose this when you book but we were given the time we need to leave before we even sat down. The food then arrived late however were told to leave at the time initially given. I didnt even get to finish my food which was piping hot and didn't cool down in time. Before I didnt finished they had bought the bill then at 5 mins left a waiter stood by the table waiting to clean making the whole experience uncomfortable, not worth a penny of the money spent and not the experience I was hoping for. Because of the rush we didn't didn't get to use the interactivity aspect of the restaurant. Will not be coming back.
We were not told properly about the end time of our booking and then were forced to pay the bill and then staff took our food away with no warning, whilst some of us were still trying to eat. When we asked if we could have at least our service charge back due to poor service they said the bill was final. I thought it was very rude and I will not be returning to this restaurant nor will I recommend it
Love the atmosphere. Food was nice and it was really fast service.
Thank you for your kind feedback, we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
The most amazing place in Covent Garden! The sushi was amazing!
I dine at Inamo every few months, and have always recommended the restaurant to friends based upon the great value for money and high quality of service. My visit on the evening of Friday 19th Nov sadly disappointed on both fronts.
Myself and 4 friends chose to dine from the unlimited wine and tapas menu, from 8.15PM for 90 minutes. At 60 minutes in we were brought the bill over and told that they had to stop any more food and drink as they had another table coming in at 9.45PM, so we needed to wrap it up.
I had several back and forth conversations with the waiting staff, to explain that we had 30 minutes left of the dining experience. The staff were clearly being put in an awkward position by the person in charge and advised they were being told by their manager that they needed to clear the table for the next guests arriving. When asking to speak to the manager a few times to clear up the issue (something as a typically British diner, I NEVER do) I was told she was “too busy”, as the manager proceeded to walk past the table several times and avoid all eye contact with us.
After waiting 20 minutes while the issue was disputed with our waiter, we were finally “allowed” one more top up of drinks. By this point we had missed out on almost half an hour of what should have been a relaxed and enjoyable dining experience. We were made to feel like we should be grateful for being allowed precisely what we were paying for.
I have always championed the restaurant and told friends about having such great experiences there, however our trip to Inamo - Covent Garden was quite frankly terrible! We left feeling short changed and wholly disappointed by the dismissive nature of the staff (particularly the manager) - which is such a shame as I’ve always loved my dining experience there. I will not be recommending your restaurant again as this totally tarnished your well earned reputation - real shame.
I’ve been going to Unami for 9 years but at the old st James location and always loved it and returned yearly.
The new Covent Garden Inamo was very disappointing. The menu had been drastically reduced, all the best dishes were removed and the “upgraded” tables were a massive downgrade. Difficult to use and not as fun.
The pork was super dry, no black cod or popcorn shrimp. The sushi was very neiche (strawberry and beetroot).
For the price they sell at they really need to pick their game up.
I will no longer be returning which is very sad as it was one of my favourite restaurants :(
How very sad - we closed ST James 7 years ago! Sorry that Covent Garden didnt live up to your memmories
Fantastic atmosphere and great interactive table . Fast service
It was greet experience. Service was really fast and helpful. We will be back
Really good place to be with kids . Our kids love it
The experience was good but nothing special, the service was faster and friendly, the quality of food no the best.
Absolute disgrace. From the deceitful looks from staff to the unhygienic and dirty tables/cups. I can say that this was the worst dinner I’ve had in a long time. The staff was completely inattentive and would roll there eyes whenever I asked for anything. Food was also of awful quality along with the service. I highly suggest booking elsewhere, as I fear you will come across the same fate as me.
Nice gibe really good food and wonderful service!!
Love this place !!! Excellent location with good friendly service. Definitely recommend our friends and family
Good food …. Fast service and helpful service. Dragon roll was best roll
Fantastic time!!! Great atmosphere and didn’t fell any rush as we spent good 90 mins .
