The ambience was good and so was the service. The tables were too close to each other for my liking and for the price we paid to dine here.

Fun place; quite nice food though I probably would choose different dishes next time. But there are plenty more to choose from

Very noisy with karaoke party happening downstairs. Place looks like could do with a makeover. Concept is fun and staff friendly. Food ok, nothing special and not worth the £125 for two people to eat with 1 drink each. Wouldn’t recommend.

The menu is extremely limited, the food was horrible, rice was cold and I didn’t know it was possible to get prawns wrong but I’ve been proven otherwise. Also had an upset stomach after. Would never recommend.

We booked the table online and was disappointed with the service and ambiance as we were seated downstairs where the lighting was poor and made it difficult to read the allergen menu. Which could be fatal for allergy sufferers. We all were surprised as there was plenty of seating upstairs and we were the only ones seated downstairs. When asked why the lady replied and said we could only sit upstairs for an hour. This is not what’s stated on your website and seemed unfair. You should make this clear on your website and treat everyone fairly.

Also we asked the waitress to check with the chef if two dishes contained dairy and the chef said it didn’t, however the allergen menu showed it did. We asked the waitress to check again as we pointed it out on the menu. She checked again with the chef and the chef said to go with the menu. This is very alarming that the chef didn’t know especially considering the increase in allergies since the recent loss of young lives.

The service charge was far too high for the service we received, the food was tasty but over priced for what you get. Finally they need to treat everyone fairly and offer the options on where parties can be seated.

Went with a family 2 adults 2 kids for a birthday. The restaurant is a little shabby and feels a bit 1980s along with the technology - the table toptouch imaging systems are incredible fun for a family to be able to pick anything of the menu and it arrives minutes later. You can play games watch the kitchen make the food even change the table cloth! The graphics are very much dated and a bit clunky but an awful lot of fun. The food is ok - very average Japanese food but excellent fast service and friendly staff. Also very expensive at £50 head including alcohol but worth a visit for the unique experience

Great novelty and staff were friendly and courteous.

The food tasted good but be warned - some of the pictures on the interactive table of the meals were not representative of the dish. Pork belly picture, for example, far bigger than the actual dish.

2 adults and a small appetite 12 year old with no alcohol - nearly £120. Felt a little pricey for what we actually ate. We ordered mostly vegetarian dishes.

If bill was £30 less than I would recommend but not worth the money to return. Possibly worth it as a one off novelty.

Food was absolutely awful, stringing fatty salmon, poor tasting, poor quality grade fish. If you are a fish/ sashimi lover and know your stuff, do not go here. If you like bad quality food that is over priced it’s the place for you. Great concept, but food is terrible and the restaurant is run down needs a refurb, toilets are filthy.

Speechless - honestly worst most expensive sushi you can find in London. Visited with my wife, it's trying to be cool with electronic menus, say I pass that part. Sushi sticks are one time use and poor quality, napkins are cheap paper one. The food, where should I start, the wings where under cooked and really nothing like proper Korean. The sushi rice was cold as if the sushi was pre-made and kept cold (that explains food was out in 2 min). Food overall quality is very poor (and I am being kind). We've paid 120£ for one of the worst dinners I've had in London. I would say absolutely stay away.

My initial impression of Inamo was negative due to the curt and unwelcoming demeanour of the front of house staff dealing with reservations. Table tech for ordering was slightly flawed on ours, and receiving actual menus was a sensory relief. The actual food was okay, the prevailing sense was that I could eat better for less in other establishments and that the price tag was more to cover the cost of their electric bill or projector maintenance. I think the Cauliflower saved the evening for me and my non-date. I would just add that the dishes came out alarmingly quickly. Almost like the technology tables read our minds and then relayed this information to the chefs (?) or the food was already pre-prepped and waiting to go. Nonetheless my non-date’s chat was above average and I didn’t have to resort to the digital games. Also the mouse/curser thing doubled up well as a drinks holder, should we have experienced turbulence in the weird (non flamboyant) sci-fi décor space shuttle (lunar rover) like interior. Suffice to say my initial impression didn't change.

What a fun interesting and different way to have a meal out. My wife and I enjoyed the interactive projections onto our table. And it was such a great surprise Valentines dinner for her - she had no idea where we were going. The food and service were excellent too. Only thing you need to watch out for, is that you will be having so much fun ordering food, that the bill can easily get out of control - so be sure to check the total balance as you go along

Like an extremely overpriced version of yo sushi except yo sushi food quality is probably bit better.
Without the gimic of the interactive table this place would be awful the service is non existent yet you will still be asked to pay a service charge.
I would strongly recommend people not to bother with this place.
The valentines set menu was extremely weak.

Relative to the high price of the set menu, the quality of the food was very sub-par. Would not recommend the set menu to anybody. I had a great experience the first time I went, but definitely not looking to return any time soon.

I went to the soho restaurant last night.
#1 The waiter stank of cigarette smoke , not what you want breathing down your neck whilst serving your food
#2 The hot food we ordered all tasted like they had just been warmed up/ luke warm. Had just been sitting there.
#3 All food was just smothered in sweet chilli sauce
Really disappointing, especially on Valentine’s Day and £130 later!!

This is a cool place to visit. You order off the table, via projector. Very cool and good fun.
The food was excellent, the service was great.
The only thing to consider is, it's an expensive place.
We went for a pre-theatres £26 each taster option.
A la carte looked even more pricey and drinks were expensive too (£14 was it, per cocktail?)
So good fun, but pricey.

Great concept but restaurant was very tired. Marking our sons birthday with a dessert was a lovely and most welcome touch. Food was excellent but very expensive. Toilets were pretty disgusting. I would have expected a cleaner more modern environment. Also considering it was so quiet it was odd that they told us we could only keep our table for 1’45” - I was aware of this at booking but they made a decisive effort to clear our table whenour time was up. I won’t be returning unfortunately...
