We went for the set menu- London Festival menu. The dishes were are vastly different size. The Octopus Yakatori was only 2 balls, yet the spiced cauliflower dish was a large bowl and the sushi roll was 8 pieces- these were all classed as a starter. So very disappointing to receive only 2 Octopus balls. Despite ordering starters, mains, side and a dessert the sides arrived before any other dish, even the starter. My main dish only arrived after everyone had finished all their dishes. It arrived on a plate, not a bowl like everyone else's. We were also told we only had 1.5 hours and felt rushed. Only to discover noone was booked after us. Was not worth the money I spent as most of the food was fried, we were rushed, and it was not good value for money. Will not go back.

Responded on 9 October 2020

Sorry this wasn't for you - as the menu clearly states the dishes are served as they are ready and not as courses. The tables were indeed booked for you and unfortunately other diners canceled just before you were due to finish - all out tables are booked for 90 minutes so that we can comply with the UK Governments Covid 19 restrictions. Sorry you left feeling Hungry

Wouldn't go again. We had Asian tapas which was below average quality - that said everyone else was eating sushi/sushimi so perhaps that's what to go for - do avoid the Asian tapas. Wine choice was extremely limited and exceptionally over priced - again maybe that's not what you go here for. Had to ask the staff to clear our table due to sitting there for a long time staring at an assortment of dirty plates taking up the table (not a busy night).
Disappointing.

Overall, food was great and the novelty of the table was fun, but we were disappointed that the explanation of the menu was so poor (and we did ask them to clarify it on numerous occasions to ensure we understood) that it meant they charged a more expensive menu.

The presentation of the dishes is generally good and I didn't get poisoned, which is a plus. However nothing seemed to make sense in the way the ingredients were mixed.

The ribs were extremely dry, the salmon was drowned in a fruity sauce. The Sichuanese chicken was actually sweet and sour. 5 spices powder was used for the fries, while the batter for the shrimp had no taste. The nigiri (4th picture) had a big chunk of cucumber inside, which overshadowed the fish. Finally the miso soup was way too watery, practically tasteless.

Service was very standard, nothing special and we were rushed off our table with no apologies. I completely understand that you have a time limit on a table but there are ways to manage that without making your customers feel rushed or less important. I visited the restaurant last year of course under different circumstances and the service was outstanding in comparison to what I experienced on Saturday. I was very disappointed and will be reluctant to book again.
Also if a customers arrive on time for their booking it is such poor service to ask them to wait outside the restaurant until the table is free. I understand with the COVID situation things can be hard to manage but as I mention previously there are better ways to handle things.

Friendly staff, lovely food. Fun interactive table. I enjoyed the day, but it was rushed. We were given around 1.5hrs which wasn't enough for a birthday party. Also, birthday plate came quite suddenly that no one was prepared to take photo and candle light disappeared before anyone could take out the phone. Food was lovely but is western style sushi. It was overall positive experience and I would come again for dinner, but maybe not for birthdays.

We ate at Inamo on a Saturday early evening, 6.30 booking and it was fairly busy already which we saw as a good sign. We were seated fairly quickly and the waitress came and told us how it all worked.
No one has a name badge and no one told us their name, so not sure how many of the reviews have specific names. The interactive menu felt fun at first but then got a bit annoying as you couldn't just flick and read, you had to navigate back to the main menu to then get to the next bit so it was a little fiddly.
The food choices are interesting. The sushi was good but the Tapas was very expensive and when the food came, we thought they were very over priced. The chicken satay was dry and cold from sitting out although tasty and a small portion for over £10. The beef tataki and salmon were very tasty also but again quite expensive.
The most disappointing yet tastiest dish was the popcorn prawns. The images were of a decent portion of bite size prawns, but when they came the size of the portion made us all laugh. It was really very small for the price but again very tasty.

So were were done in less than an hour, spent nearly £110 for 4 of us which had one beer, 3 small plates and two large, oh and a rice. We left hungry. Way too expensive for what it is and the interactive system sure needs updating. The service was good, all the waiting staff were friendly but the idea is fun but delivery needs work.

Found the experience over rated.
Food was mediocre at best, well apart from the cheapest item we brought, which was the octopus.
Other then that I wouldn’t recommend it.
The sweet and sour chicken was full of yellow peppers and a minimal amount of chicken.
The lollipop chicken was terrible, lightly breaded chicken wings with sweet chilli sauce on top.
I don’t know what dishes they pride themselves on but the tapas menu is definitely not a part of it.
I could go through the rest of the items we ordered but I’d probably run out of space.
For the price we paid I would have been more satisfied at my local oriental takeaway shop of a quarter of the price.
A restaurant like this shouldn’t even dare ask for service charge, all they do is bring food to your table, they don’t take your order as it all done on the interactive table, so the one job that we needed was to bring forks and somehow this task took longer then necessary.
Overall this was not worth my time or money!
Working in this industry aswell probably made me more critical but I wasn’t impressed with the overall experience.

Food was great and very fresh tasting. Bit on the pricey side, but understandable given location. My main issue with Inamo is the price of drinks. Unnecessarily expensive, no need to have such a high margin on the drinks... The fact there is a 30p difference in nce between a pint of beer and a 330ml bottle says it all. Good experience, wouldn't go again purely for pricing... Unless I win lottery
