The food served was absolutely great and delicious. The only problem for us was that we got seated to the high table with some really high chairs,which where impossible to get near the table to be comfortable. Also when the people next to us were trying to get to the table, the whole thing was shaking like crazy. So the chairs were really not good but the awesome food almost made us forget about that.

Really good food but at a premium in terms of pricing. If you are looking for a quiet meal for 2 this might not be the place for you given the seating arrangements, especially along the long marble "bar" section.

My wife choked on a fishbone found in her salmon poke bowl, resulting in the entire morning experience being ruined. The restaurant manager did address this issue accordingly, but it does not distract from the fact that the priority of any skilled sushi chef is to ensure all bones are removed.

Apart from this, it felt cramped and noisy. At this price point, consideration needs to be taken towards the number of covers they turn around at peak times. The staff were too busy to be personable and attentive.

I hated the service. The waiter refused to even get us water as required. When I asked him to keep the jug on the table, he said it was out of policy. The chicken dish was horrible and we did not eat it. We were not even asked if there was something wrong with the dish (we only had a bite). I wouldn’t recommend this place. And definitely advice the restaurant to train staff better and treat all guests equally.

Have been here a few times before and it has always been very good. Unfortunately this time it was not good at all. Really slow and unattentive service. The toilets were also out of order so they had zero toilets that were available for use....seriously?!? Not impressed.

Lovely venue, tables quite close to each other, not alot of room to walk especially when you hv a full plate of food. Food was very good quality. Good value for money considering the 5 star venue in the heart of London. Comes with 1 free drink too. Will go again!

Would have preferred to not share our table with 6 other people in various groups as we didn’t have much space and it didn’t seem like a premium experience. Also would have liked more choice with the welcome drink, like a prosecco or Bellini - bear, sake, Bloody Mary isn’t for everyone.

Went for lunch mid-week. Excellent poke bowls and black cod gyoza, in a very cool setting. We were sat at the long marble counter - great view of the beautiful Ned interiors. Overall highly recommend it here, it's worth returning just for the poke alone! One star knocked off for service - we had to wait ages to pay as they were very busy, plus towards the end of our meal a waiter spilt a nearby drink and some liquid got onto my handbag (they dealt with very professionally though and gave us free pudding and coffee to compensate).

A fantastic brunch experience. Food and service excellent. The only gripe I'd have is that you are restricted to 1.5 hours for parties of 2, but given 2 hours for parties of 3 or more. Feels a bit unfair.

Bar table are too wide so yr friend is sitting a little too far and hard to hear them as so noisy. The lamps are also too large so if you find yourself in a spot where you have them, it’s awkward.
