Loved our experience at Inamo. The staff is really lovely and super attentive. We loved especially Wendy, Zain and Elisa who went out of their way to look after us.
Great food and lots of vegetarian options.

Over rated, over priced, shabby and disappointing. Food arrived at different times, somethings we waited 5 minutes for others 40 mins. Very rude staff, zero customer care. Go elsewhere.

Inamo was really great. The interactive ordering system was easy to use and very engaging. The food was a at good level though it could’ve been a little hotter. The service was brilliant. Very quick and friendly. Wendy the Manager was so lovely. Very interesting to talk to and really knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The price was ok. £42 pp. including a bottle of the lowest price wine. It’s a great place if you want something a little different.

This visit was a birthday treat for a 10 year old. He loves sushi so no problems food wise and he thoroughly enjoyed being able to play games at the meal table. Please do not change the format you have at Soho and did have at St james'

Amazing food. Unfortunately I wasn’t keen on the interactive tables but they are a brilliant feature. Amazing service, a tad noisy as the table text to us were slightly over bearing with their noise. The drinks were a bit over priced but food was awesome and great value and worth every penny

Had great fun playing with the projectors; reviewing the menu, ordering food, changing our tablecloth design and playing games. A really novel idea which was truly entertaining (although I'm not sure you'd keep going back once you know the deal). The food was very good, though I was not a fan of the sauce that was inexplicably smothered onto the tempura prawns (making them soft not crunchy). The fried tofu was delicious as were the ribs, the chicken wings and everything else we ordered. I reserve my final moan for my glass of Prosecco - it was a bit flat. I'm being hyper critical as it wasn't cheap but overall it was an entertaining meal out and the rest of my group would be mortified at my criticisms (but then they are teenagers and don't like anything I say).

Had been to their Covent Garden branch before and wanted to try a different location.
After waiting for a good 10 minutes to be greeted by a vey unentusiastic receptionist we were sat at a table of 4, next to two strangers, despite the restaurant being half empty and several tables for two people being available. No introduction to how the ordering system worked, you just had to figure it our by looking at the people around you. The menu seems to have shrunk compared to Covent Garden. After ordering the food arrived within 5 minutes, making us question if it could have really been freshly prepared. Also the taste (apart from the sushi we ordered) was not better than your local Chinese around the corner but for double, triple the price.
Also atmosphere was quite cold and impersonal, so we were not really inclined to stay for long.

Food was fabulous, good value for money. Restaurant was cramped downstairs, waiter leaned on me and my chair every time he came over. Had the theatre menu and felt like the waitress was rushing us out, trying to clear the table before we’d finished. Not relaxing but would try another Inamo because the food and interactive table were worth it. N.b. You have to pay a pound for a doggy bag.

We ate at Inamo in 2017 and really enjoyed the novel experience. Our second outing in 2019, the novelty was much less of course, but the food presentation and taste was much better. However, we wish they had more vegetarian, poultry and seafood options for those of us that do not eat beef or pork. I downgraded Inamo for value because unless you specify as you are seated that you are using the a la carte special, you will not receive the discount. We had booked our table with a fixed price promotion for ordering from the a la carte menu. We did this, but it turned out that the promotion was for a set menu and not a la carte. Very misleading. Overall, very, very good restaurant with excellent service, food and presentation.

Really not as impressed as I hoped, I came a few years ago and the food was much better, the sushi was good but the other taps was average at best and really expensive. £16 for a small plate of noodles is far too much

Poor service and then was charged an additional £8 for a service charge which they were unwilling to take off!

Been here before and had a fantastic time. Upon returning the service was AWFUL. Clearly the staff had no idea what was on the menu as we ordered three different meals, none of which were available! The only saviour was the manager who was very apologetic. Even so our meals took over an hour to arrive and it took 1hr 30mins for them to tell us our other courses were not coming, despite the repeated requests! Get some new staff!!!!
The food that did arrive was delicious, shame that the talented chefs were let down by the appalling staff.

We arrived half an hour early, and the place was empty, we were told we would have to leave in an hour and a half. They would not seat us a bit early and give us the the extra time. The food was good. We told the waitress that I am vegetarian, but my friend is not. But when our sushami arrived my vegetarian one was served on the same plate as the non veg. Which was disappointing. But overall had a good time.

I would most definitely recommend Inamo restaurant just maybe not the SoHo branch. Food/deal was amazing but the staff and service here are not the best. There is also no where to sit for a drink while you wait for your table to be ready and was made to sit out on the stair case while they prepared this. We were then put downstairs out the way so took a while for the waiter to come. When they did come, one lady dropped the dish down my partners back and did not apologise, simply picked the food off of him and walked off
