Do not dine here during peak hours. Severely understaffed which led to poor service, cold food, hot rocks that did not cook negating the whole experience. On balance a poor experience and a poor value for money.

Sushi rolls had the consistency of mashed potatoes, the flavour of the food was horrible, and the fish was not
fresh. ALSO, very overpriced for low-quality food that u could've bought at Sainsbury.

The food is superb and the sake selection is comprehensive. The only negative is that they only have a single external door with no lobby so you get blasted with cold air every time someone arrives. Ask for a table as far from the door as possible

Unfortunately we had a disappointing experience. After an amazing previous visit we were let down by slow service, very slow food (arriving 40-50 minutes after we ordered), and the food quality was not great. We had to return one dish that was not cooked.

Service was so inefficient


Toke 1 hour to pay the bill.

Hot stone can only heat for 10 minutes and then needed to be replaced which takes 15 minutes for them

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 two steak set menu for £49 was an absolute steal and I would highly recommend this restaurant as we had an amazing time. The service was much to be desired, I think we had to ask for a drink after waiting 10minutes from being seated. With a restaurant that wasn’t even at 1/2 capacity this seemed a bit poor.

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
