This was my second time here and glad to see they have nailed it again. Every single dish was amazing, I could order everything all over again right now! This is not just my favourite local/hidden gem, this is my favourite in London!

Service was great and calming. Decor minimalistic and trendy. The kimchi, fried sticky tofu and white crab with mango sushi really stood out, but all the dishes were magnificent

Very thorough consideration on making it a safe environment to dine and work. All staff were wearing face masks, plastic covered menu's were disinfected each new table, etc. Felt safe.

Food and drinks were amazing, we will be back!

The restaurant was clearly under-staffed. Service was extremely slow, took over 1 hour for us to receive our starter. My main dish had a hair in it. Waiters had very little time to attend to us as the restaurant was clearly operating over capacity. Food was okay, apart from the hair which I had in my dish, which basically ruined my experience. It is a shame, since the flavours were okay. I will not recommend because of the low quality of hygiene and service standards. Over priced.

Excellent food and amazing cocktails #48 ? Friendly waitresses. Price appropriate for the quality of the food.
We had the last table available which was located by the door so not ideal.

The ambience and food is very good and the cocktails are different (in a good way!) The service could be better as we were forgotten about a couple of times and so were some of our dishes, which we had to keep asking for. Overall would definitely recommend this place!

I would say a very good place for a special dinner. Our experience was perfect, let's say that inside you can have your own space cause there aren't too many seats and this is already important. Then the service was outstanding, a very kind and smiley staff (another very important thing to me) which helped us with our choices due to some food Intolerances (gluten and dairy) which however let us had some very nice and truly japanese dishes. Quality is meant to be paid, but I swear that was worth every single pound paid. Definitely recommended! (written by an Italian, if that can means something)

We had spent an amazing night at Issho-Ni last Friday. The cocktails were amazing, smooth and different to what we are normally used to. The food was delicious and fresh. And of course the service was just perfect, everyone very friendly! Thank you Claire for creating this restaurant! :)

Great food, a little bit pricey, but fairly standard for Japanese fare in London. Friendly staff and good atmosphere in a central location. Definitely recommend!
