Generally a really nice place. Definitely coming back. The food was excellent and the portions in the 5 course set menu was perfect for a dinner. The staff were super attentive.
It’s a tiny restaurant so you do feel a little squeezed in but the food was really delicious. We ordered lots of the small plates and everything was really fresh and tasty. The only complaint was that they brought everything out at once and the plates barely fit on the tiny table and then some things got cold as we couldn’t eat them quickly enough. Next time we will just ask them to stagger bringing things out.
Wonderful responsive service, great freshwater eel and moos-chi dessert. Nice setting. Definitely recommend.
Excellent food and service. Best gyozas in town! Fair prices for an outstanding dining experience.
It may not have the hype and reputation of Nobu and Zuma, the food and service is equally good. Great service tonight. Keep up the good work.
I took my client for her birthday lunch and we had a great experience. The sashimi was delicious and the black cod outstanding! I will definitely come back very soon.
Really modern vibe with yummy/trendy sushi. Great place to catch up with someone or go on a date!
Food could be better!! Not what I expected. Maybe I have been to Zuma too often !
Great meal. Quality to rival the big names such a Nobu or Roka but far more reasonably priced.
Great restaurant. Amazing staff and such a lovely atmosphere.
Amazing food and amazing service! Well worth a visit
While the portions were small, everything was fresh and well prepared. Service was attentive and friendly and we loved the intimate but not too quiet atmosphere.
Lovely venue if a little small. Food is high quality with an excellent range of dishes.
Amazing food, tucked away in Shepherds Market. We had the soft shell crab for the first time and it was divine. Another highlight was the california rolls and the miso cod. Can't wait to go back again.
Amazing place should visit great food
They have pure Japanese foods which taste pretty great!
We went as a couple. The place is small and intimate. On the whole, the food had a mixture of good and bad points. We ordered a lot of sashimi and sushi, black cod, beef sirloin and fried aubergine. The squid sashimi was very chewy and the octopus quite chewy but the rest (hamachi, Amaebi) was nice. The ikura gunkan, California roll and negi toro were tasty. The black cod was good and didn't need the very sweet miso sauce that came in a side bowl. We asked for the beef to be medium rare and it was perfectly cooked. That was my favourite dish but again came with a very overpoweringly sweet sauce in a bowl which was not needed. The fried aubergine was the biggest disappointment. It came smothered with the super sweet miso sauce and was inedible. The sauce should be less sweet and put in a bowl on the side. For dessert, we had the yuzu creme brulee with lychee sorbet which was very nice. We finished with a pot of ginger and lemon tea. There was not enough ginger in the pot and the tea was hence too weak a taste. We had one small hot sake between us. The bill was £78 per person which was expensive for what it was but it is inline with Mayfair prices. Service was friendly and efficient.
excellent on all counts 👍🏼❤️💐
Very good quality of food, and the set menu is great value for money.
Amazing place. Lovey atmosphere. Super sushi
Delicious sushi, super fresh and some of the best food I have had in a while!
Sushi were perfect. Lovely staff offered their special tuna tartar. It was just amazing. Highly recommend this place. Will be back soon.
Great restaurant, great food, great atmosphere, just great!
Nice place for business meeting
Great Great Great. We came a bit early for our dinner. We had great drinks at the bar. After we were welcomed to our table. Nice recommendations for food and drinks. We really enjoyed our meal. Try their hamachi carpaccio.
Waiter/Waitress were attentive the service charge was well worth the cost and justified, personally I prefer the sushi rolls over the nigiri the fish slice on the nigiri were on the small side
Taka Roll - must try.
Perfect little gem in London. Outstanding service, delicious food and cozy setting.
Taka made our date special. All our food were nicely presented. Great selection of sake. In the end of our meal we had amazing dessert with candles and they did us special birthday song.
Very good sushi! Incredible experience and service!
Food was divine, highly recommend the Black Cod.
Yuzu cocktail was gorgeous, mochi balls delicious
Lovely intimate date night
Slightly expensive but really good food, overwhelming smell of truffle.
We had sushi and sahimi selection. Everything were executed perfectly. Very nice and helpful staff. Lovely dessert. Highly recommend.
Excellent sushi and personal service. Location just off Picadilly in the charming Shepherd Market
Higly recommend Black Cod. Perfect. Sushi and Sashimi just WOW
We had an amazing business lunch. Lovely staff. Will definitely be back. Thank you Taka
We had an amazing dinner. Service were brilliant. It was really busy night, but everything went well. All dishes came on time. Lovely staff suggested the best choices. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.
Had a good business lunch in Taka with the set menu which was reasonable value. Unfortunately the vegetarian version was rather uninspired with a plate of steamed broccoli provided when the meat-eaters got beautiful little skewers of tastiness. Luckily the accompanying sauce was delish.
Still not sure what I think of the Matcha tiramasu though. Excellent friendly but non-intrusive service.
Really delicious food and not overly priced, lovely service too. Highly recommend
Very intimate dining experience, best for a date night as a couple.
Amazing food - especially the aubergine
