Food was below average with a posh price tag. Drinks weren’t cold, food wasn’t hot. And the screens which are supposed to be the highlight were glitchy and slow and frustrating to use.

Went to Inamo for anniversary dinner and it was a fantastic experience. Staff were very friendly and the food was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend the shrimp and the dragon roll. They even presented us with a special dessert for our anniversary which was really sweet. The interactive table is cool too. Definitely going back.

We visited for a special occasion. Two adults and 2 children aged 10 and 12. The whole idea of doing the ordering on your table, choosing drinks, seeing what your food will look like and then watching the kitchen prepare is great. You can choose your own table cover and play games. This did not stop us from eating and chatting as the food was very, very good. Wendy served us, explained all and made it very special. She is a great asset to Inamo. All food was great but special mention to the bang bang cauliflower and the Dragon roll.

The table technology and no printed menu means you have to use a sort of mouse to access a menu in the table surface and drag and drop your chosen dishes or drinks into your basket then remember to actually order it. It wasn’t easy to use and once the table is covered with plates it’s impossible to actually see the table and order more things. Very odd. Didn’t enhance the otherwise decent food experience.

It was an okay experience but the service wasn’t the best. Some of the food was excellent (sweet chilli prawn, gyoza and a Sichuan chicken) but some areas were a miss (Korean fried chicken wings and the sashimi sharing platter). It’s a good thing to try once as the tables were fun but it isn’t something I would run back to again with the price of the food and service considered.

The technology was incredibly cool and the service was quick, waiters replied to your every need. Unfortunately, the quality of the food was not high at all, I only enjoyed a couple of the many things I ordered and the noise level was very high, this could be improved by turning down the volume of the music.

First visit; took a while to get the hang of the technology, very charming waitress who was most helpful and food was full of taste and well presented. Finding noodles anywhere on the electronic menu escaped us although no doubt we could have asked. Ideal for kids undoubtedly as long as they don't order things without parental knowledge??

Interactive table was a great concept and quite novel when I visited some years ago particularly as the technology was new then. A little outdated now using a touch mouse to trawl through menu which was slow and not too easy

Food was really tasty but expensive compared to surrounding restaurants.

Food came out quickly but interactive request for assistance didn’t result in anyone coming to help.

I don’t like a service charge being added to the bill automatically or a planting a tree tax.

Great concept but probably needs a tech refresh given I have better capability on my phone now including touch screen technology

Fun idea. Ambiance and decor was a little lacking, and it all felt a bit cheap and not well cared for/ a bit dated. Would have expected a little more given it’s prime location and all the buzz around this place, and given the price point which I felt was a little on the high end for what it was. The food was nice and the dining format was unusual and quite fun!

Although the service is prompt and friendly, this place is dirty. Really really dirty. If the restaurant can’t be bothered to clean the part of the restaurant that the customer sees, I dread to think what the kitchen looks like. That said, my stomach wasn’t feeling great the next day . Additionally, the toilets were a disgrace. Numerous empty scent sticks in empty bottles littered the bathroom without serving any purpose. One toilet was out of order, one didn’t flush properly and one had a broken lock. For the price we paid, it was all a bit of a joke.

The restaurant had HUGE flys everywhere!!! It was disgusting! To go on a night out and pay £36 per head just to be sat there swatting flys away from sushi. This is a huge health and safety issue. When I asked to move from the flys, I was told that the back area was being closed of. I really feel like I wasted my money as I could not enjoy any food at all.

We were new to the restaurant so wasn't sure what to do. The staff who served us must be new to the restaurant and he told us that a staff would come to attend to us. Waited for a while but no one came. The previous staff then came again and after found out no one came to us, he then explained everything to us. He is very polite, helpful and provided a great service . We didn't get his name but is an Asian waiter. The food is not spectacular given the higher than average price.

First time visiting and the interactive table took a bit of getting used to for an older person however it worked really well. Food and speed of service was excellent. You can keep a check on your spending using the interactive mouse however beware that it doesn’t include the 12.5 percent service charge. Drinks are very expensive even for London prices. Food isn’t cheap but well worth the price.

You use the table to order your drinks and food making it a unique experience. The food is lovely, a bit pricey but I suspect that's cause it's an unusual dining experience. There was 4 of us in total. I bought three friends as I had been there a few years ago and knew they would enjoy it's uniqueness.

The night was ruined by the staff and is the sole reason why I won't go or recommend this place again. We ordered desert and when it finally arrived we were rudely told we only had 5mins to eat it cause our reservation was up. They continually watched us from that point and urged us to finish up another two times despite us still eating as there was guests waiting. There was several tables still free!

I appreciate reservations need to be capped espically at the weekend but do not allow your guests to order desert and than try and rush them to eat it. You need to warn them if there reservation is coming to an end. If we had been informed in advance our booking was over running we wouldn't of ordered desert. We would of happily paid and just tried the desert the next time!

Due to the attitude of the staff including the manager we ended up removing the service from the bill. The waiter was clearly upset at our request. You can't expect service if it's not deserved. My only recommendation is the staff should be trained in customer service.

On arrival we were greeted by a somewhat rude meeter and greeter..was argumentative about our booking as it didn’t say we wanted the 90 minutes unlimited deal. Whilst the food was lovely and came quickly the drinks were a lot slower and considering we were on an unlimited drinks deal we probably lost about half of that waiting for drinks to arrive. And then when we asked for one more round we were told NO☹️At £42 per person they need to get their act together on the speed of service. However the food is great and a lot of vegetarian options.would I go back? Not really

Went for the set menu at £24.95pp which we felt was overpriced for the quality of food. Poor selection of food within the set menu and drinks are unnecessarily expensive so it’s almost not worth going for a deal. Would not recommend this to friends and unlikely to dine here again.

Amazing food, innovative approaches and great atmosphere made for a really brilliant birthday night for my girlfriend. Only slight negative was the price. We were unable to utilise the ‘all you can eat’ tapas menu because of our time of arrival so the cost of £160 for two seemed a little excessive.

It is a good "interesting" restaurant to go to, right in the heart of Soho. There are good vegetarian and vegan options. My one complaint is how overpriced it is - we had no meat or alcohol (1 soft drink) and still paid £40 each for a fairly small meal. You're paying for the concept, which is cool, but then the food needs to reflect the price in quality which right now it doesn't.

Arrived a couple of mins late but within their 15min deadline. Got left at the front desk for 5mins with no explanation or apology.

Our table was basically against the adjacent table so instead of a dinner for 2 it was more like a dinner for 4, indeed one of our dishes was delivered to the couple on the adjacent table. We didn’t feel very ‘loved’ from this.

Thankfully the food was delicious with a mix of options but pricing is a little on the rich side.

I love the concept of the place, with the interactive table: it simplifies all the requests to staff and it’s a great help to visualize the options in the menu. The staff was friendly and the food was good. We ordered the famous sushi dragon and the sushi quality was average. The vegetarian noodles were delicious. We ordered Chocolate Fizz Fondue for dessert (strawberry, marshmallow and brownies with melted chocolate and popping candy): simple, efficient and triple delicious! The only negative note goes for the ambience and noise level: the tables are too close to each other and we were next to a small group party that has had one too many. They bothered us during the whole meal, trying to force a conversation.
