The food is really great. Sushi was fresh and delicious, tempura was amazing and must try the pork gyoza. Even the mochi ice cream for dessert was delicious.

Servers could have been slightly more attentive.

Be prepared to pay £100+ for two diners with 1 or 2 drinks each.

The food is nice, especially the Yakka Tofu and the stone steak. People work there are polite and willing to discribe how the food and drinks will be. Will come again! hope they will keep the good quality and service.

Food quality was as good as it gets. The drinks were a bit underwhelming though. Service was fine. But the price tag is understandably high because of the location etc. Will I come back? I’ll have to think twice though.

All food there was perfect even for Japanese tongue.
Sushi of nigiri and roll was one of the bests in Europe I think.
Performance of Robata steak was good as well.

The first time we went to Sakagura it was amazing, so i decided to come back here for my partners birthday and i must say that the service was not as great as the first time, it took a good while for our drinks to come and we had to wait a long time for the bill. Also we ordered our food in the order we wanted the food to come to us..what we would have for starters mains etc, the waitress said it wouldn't be a problem but all of the food came in the wrong order, i think for the money you pay it shouldn't be a problem receiving the food in the order you want, if it was going to be a issue then we should of been told that. The first time we came to Sakagura we didn't have this issue.
Overall the food was nice and it is a nice place to eat, but we feel we had better service the first time we went.

Food is special and the selection of Sake is fantastic. We had multiple servers and think we got lost as the service was extremely slow from taking orders, to food arriving, to having to ask for the bill which then turned out to be incorrect.

I love this place, but we ordered food and it took an incredibly long time to arrive, only coming after we asked the server. This made me think they must have lost our order, but noone apologized for the delay. Then, when the food arrived it contained shrimp even though we had ordered without because a member of our party was allergic. Again, noone really apologized. Other than than, it was a nice evening, but for the price (very expensive) we would have expected a little more.

I love this place and I always visit. Everything is lovely! Admittedly, it’s a little bit on the pricey side, but worth it. I gave it 4 stars on food because they have changed the recipe of the sweet potato fries, which isn’t so great now. But everything else is wonderful!

Would recommend , though would say it is 15 % overpriced.

The tiramisu dessert was delicious and would have been superb if the cake would have been somewhat modere dredged with sake, as the menu promises.

Oh and the seating closer to the door was giving us cold from the draft.

One of my favorite meals in London so far! We had the Chilli squid, the spicy tuna roll, pork belly and then a steak to cook ourselves. Everything was delicious. The only issue I had was that the food came out almost altogether so i sent back the food that we wasn't ready for.

If you book here make sure you have the smoked whiskey sake for a post dinner drink.... was outstanding!

It was quite nice but not great. We dined at 1:30pm on a weekday and the restaurant was about half-full. Tables for two are very small and feel a bit peripheral. Service was polite and friendly but inattentive: I had to chase for our G I returned it and took salmon instead, which was much better. The tempura prawns were lovely: big, juicy and flavoursome, and the miso soup was excellent. The room gets pretty smoky when diners cook steaks on hot stones.

The food and service was excellent and whilst I accept the service charge is automatically added to the food bill I do not expect to have a further 12.5% service charge added to a drinks bill for an after meal drink sitting at the bar.

This was obviously optional as there was no question when I mentioned I was not happy paying it but it still left me feeling upset as i don't like complaining.
