The service was absolutely appalling - one of the worst I’ve seen in London. The food was mediocre - you can easily find a place which provides similar standards of food with much lower prices. AVOID.

The service was not up to mark, the food all came hap hazard.. Ordered expensive Saki and it was warm and when i requested to send a cold one i was told i didn't know what i was talking about, and later i found out there fridge had problems and wasn't cooling.

The food is exceptional however the service and the staff are going to run the place to the ground.

Considering the price This place is charging (esp.wagyu beef), we expected good quality food but it was very disappointing.
It got busy later on and when people have stone baked food it can makes the place smoky and stinks your clothes.

Inexperience waiters. Food served in the wrong order. Medium to low quality of fish. I don't understand how they get 4.5 on Open Table. For someone who lived many years in Japan - this is mediocre at best

The food was amazing, but the waiters were pretty slow to get to us. We were sitting for fifteen minutes before anyone took our order.

Otherwise, it was pretty excellent.

Delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere in the resturant! Can be a bit noisy, if a lot of people are present, especially since they also play music. A good varied selection of food in different price ranges.
The service can be a bit slow but they are really polite and also asks if there exists an allergy amoungst the dinner party that they should be aware of.

The price for the food is just TOO High. The quality of the food is nice but nowhere else you would pay so much for Yakitori. If you are a Sake fan like us .... it is just great ... I am not sure if I would go back for the food (even it is very delicious), but the prizes are much too high.

Fantastic maguro, Tempura batter a bit heavy, eel not warm (should be straight from the grill) and not enough unagi sauce. But these are details. Will be coming again.

Food came at strange intervals. The Miso soup came last of all. Would have been better if everything had been served simultaneously, or the two starters followed by the main sushi.

Excellent food quality which frankly surprised us because, although the place has a fairly authentic Japanese look and feel, there was no sign of any Japanese chef or staff serving us. We ate a good selection of Yakitori and tempura dishes, followed by excellent Australian Wagyo beef cooked on a sizzling rock. A vibrant place but not too noisy and a convenient location off Regent Street. The service was slow and we had noted this in earlier reviews but took the risk in view of the food quality. I think they just need to take heed of the repeated comments on service quality and speed. And, by the way, this is a genuine review and we did eat there in case the manager decides to bounce this back with the frequent comment in Tripadvisor that all negatives are reported as fake reviews.

Service is great but overpriced food. The ribeye steak cooked on heated stone is good but not great. Can eat similar quality beef at a decent restaurant half the price. The nonalcoholic drink is £7 which is overpriced as well

It was a great experience and we enjoyed our anniversary dinner. The food was lovely and the ambience was very nice and relaxing. The service was excellent, thanks to all the lovely staff. I have already recommended it to some friends who have been asking and sending me messages when I uploaded photos and videos on instagram.
It was a truly lovely dinner for us, I can’t thank you all enough.

Nice atmosphere, took a long time for someone to ask us if we wanted drinks. We were a bit invisible at first and it wasn’t too busy when we arrived either.
Food was nice but pricey as expected for the area though. The rest of the service was fine and the dinner was a nice treat. Probably wouldn’t return though.

I went to Sakagura to celebrate my fiancé birthday and need to say we not regret. Restaurant from very beginning can give you oriental feel thanks to how it look , style and atmosphere service provide. Food was very delicious, full of flavours and quality, small portions but that what you have to expect when going to Japanese restaurant. That’s why you should order few dishes to share. Definitely recommend if you are looking for nice, oriental experience with delicious food rather then just normal big diner.

Food was OK, seaweed salad had more cress than seaweed, got the mixed grilled skewers which took agessss to come after all our other dishes we had to chase it up and when it finally did arrive - one of the prawns were undercooked. Place was quite noisy. Good agedashi tofu and sushi. Was not worth price paid.
