They put tables next to the door but the door does not shut itself and we had to get up and close it every single time a customer or a delivery guy came on our went out otherwise we would freeze. The poor waiter did it for us a couple of time but he was swamped.
The waiter was really kind but the service was, in general, very disorganized.
The food was amazing as always.

Went here as a group of 6 people. The staff were very friendly and the food was incredible. A few of us used to live in Japan, so it brought back good memories of authentic tasting Japanese food. Prices are crazy expensive too which is a bonus in London.

Limited menu due to fuse blowing in kitchen but we were not advised about this prior to arriving even though we had a booking. The waiter also didn't mention anything upon arrival
