Robun is a tribute to Japanese author Kanagaki Robun and his 1872 book Seiyō ryōritsū, which introduced Western barbecue to Japan.

Our modern-day interpretation of Yakiniku specialises in sharing plates of beautiful robata grilled dished large plates fused with elements from across Asia, paired with inspired cocktails and an extensive choice of Japanese whiskeys or sake in the most inviting and sociable of settings.

Alongside our innovative selection of sashimi, salads and small plates, our fresh sushi is served in a variety of creative incarnations including soft-shell crab futomaki roll with kimchi mayo and a tobiko-topped nigiri.

Upstairs in the Kanagaki Suite, we provide an events space and cocktail bar set to host celebrations and events. Besides hosting bespoke celebrations and meetings, the Suite opens up on weekends for a place to drink and dine!

Robun is the place to relax, unwind and enjoy sharing plates with friends and family. It will definitely leave you wanting more.

    This isn’t a good restaurant. No one cares. It feels like one of anonymous restaurants you find in Gran Canaria or in an airport which looks smart but fails to deliver in all ways. Staff are going through the motions, nothing more. The food is at best bland and its presentation dates. I watched chefs scrolling on their mobile phones whilst cooking. No hussle, no care, no passion. Nothing truly awful just utterly forgettable. Better meal to be had opposite at wagamama, I fear.

    We had a wonderful afternoon tea which was a superb birthday present for my husband from our daughter. This was the perfect way to spend the afternoon and so much better than sandwiches and scones. As always our favourite restaurant did not disappoint.

    Rather disappointing overall. Service was excellent. We ordered the special 4 course menu for 4 people. Food mediocre/ bordering on poor, especially main beef dish where the meat was so tough that some of it was inedible. Value for money I would say is also poor. Quite overpriced for what you get. Once again I would praise the staff. Service was excellent and they took my complaint about the beef in good spirit and discounted the bill a little to compensate. The overall concept is good

    We really enjoyed our visit to Robun. The sushi platter was fresh and delicious. We also had some popcorn shrimp which were amazing. All of the staff were great, really helpful and attentive. Already planning a return visit!

    Unfortunately Robun does not live up to the expectations. The food looks beautiful, that the only positive that we can say. The starters are mediocre, a portion of roasted peanuts would be considered an upgrade. The sushi were basically tasteless and so was the virgin cocktail. Totally disappointed. For the price we paid, we expected the quality to follow but it was nothing close... Spent £80 for two person. 1 starter, 1 sushi platter (20 pieces) and two virgin cocktails.

    The food was okay, I wasn’t blown away, but it was alright. The service however wasn’t great - I will admit when I saw other reviews about the service, I’d assumed people were maybe just being a bit picky, but it really was poor. We arrived and were not greeted, there were cans of redbull and car keys on the bar that the staff had left. I asked where the loos where and was told to just use the disabled loo as it’s closer - I went it do so to find a male member of staff was using the loo already, with the door not just unlocked, but open? Amusing for me, however if I’d had my children with me (which others in the restaurant did!), I would have been furious. There were other things that I found pretty unprofessional from servers at what is meant to be a nice restaurant. It was the service you’d expect in a Wetherspoons, but I got to pay 5x the price for it. I didn’t complain at the time because I’d taken my mum out as a treat, and didn’t want to put a damper on our day, but really I should have asked for the service charge to be removed at the very least.
