The food and service was absolutely divine. However, the portions were extremely tiny, for the price we paid.

Our first visit to Tokimeite, we absolutely loved it.

My wife and I have both lived in Japan and regularly visit, the food was certainly on a par with some of the best meals we have had, although it is charged at a premium.

Book a spot at the counter if you can and chat with the waiter and staff. Seeing your sashimi being prepared really adds another dimension to your experience than if sat at on the tables.

The squid karaage is divine (we ordered a second portion, it was so good) and the Chilean sea bass was simply exquisite. The sashimi was also top quality, a good marker of the standard for the rest of the menu, although you could probably give the lobster and cauliflower a miss.

The atmosphere was quiet when we first arrived, but we were one of the first tables; by the time we left the restaurant was fully occupied, although social distancing measures make you wonder of how much more of a vibe there could be when full. For an intimate meal out, it’s ideal, though.

The service is warm and welcoming, the Maitre d’ in particular was an excellent host and engaging without being intrusive.

Valentine’s Day menu was terrific. Waiter and all the courses were excellent! Only suggestion is that the woman who brought each course to the table would just place it on our table and leave. It would have been nice for her to tell us a bit about each course as it was presented, particularly since we had the special set Menu.

Spectacular! Excellent food and service, sushi was to die for and my friend loved the wagyu carpaccio. Ambience was buzzing, it was a pleasure interacting with the chef and the team. We will certainly be returning. Thank you so much Tokimeite team!

I am a Japanese so perhaps too critical about the Japanese restaurant in comparison to the other reviewers, however the sashimi I had at lunch was not fresh and had bad smell especially tuna - just about edible but not pleasant. The miso soup was not hot when served. The teriyaki salmon was thin and very dry. Nishime was bland and mushy. The waitress kept touching food with her fingers as she served the food - not very hygenic. The deco was nice. The tea was nice. I would be surprised if the chef has ever been to Japan before... very amateur.

Recently reopened Tokimeite was not my first choice but late booking left little choice. We were genuinely blown away by the quality of the food and service,. Bit pricey but high quality. We will definitely be going back.

How can a wonderful restaurant like Tokimeite which used to offer excellent food prepared with the finest ingredients all of a sudden go downhill like it has? I would suggest to change back to the former expert Chefs that used to perform the art of japanese cooking behind the counter. Definitely not a place to go back to until this change has happened.

Refreshing to hv a more refined setting for Japanese food in London.
Nice ambience.
However we still prefer the traditional Japanese food which is still quite rare in London.

I always try to fit Tokimeite into my London visits. It disappointed 2 trips ago, bounced but last time and has continued its strong performance. I dined very early so it was quiet, but that’s to be expected. Food was excellent, service too.

I booked the place as I heard about the twin restaurant in Tokyo.The two of us were the only guests in
the restaurant for the whole evening.The service was not impressive and the menu was very basic, nothing really interesting , nothing to do with a real Kaiseki experience.The prices were like in a real top London Japanese restaurant but there is nothing to support this positioning.

Kind of disappointed. The food was very salty and clams were over cooked, couldn’t swallow because was too hard. Service was ok but as a Michelin restaurant it shouldn’t have the quality like that

The food is great and more Japanese in a way. But the overall service might be in need of some improvement to match the restaurant. The guy who served my table had a face far from wearing a smile and was less than good at recommending dishes. But the other waitress fared much better. So I can't be completely sure about the overall quality of the service since I only encountered two of the staff. However, I can be sure that their food is worth tasting.
