Yashin Ocean House
Our sushi concept is “without soy sauce – but if you want to”. Of course, we can serve as much soy sauce as the diner desires; however, what we want to emphasise is the taste of the fish. Therefore, each piece of sushi that we serve is brushed with the right amount of soy sauce and topped with an accompaniment that harmonises with the flavour of the fish.

Great food, great service
This is not our first visit to Yasmin but sadly don’t think we will return anytime soon.
An entire tray of drinks was knocked onto our guest, her handbag and leather jacket. Whilst the waiter was profusely apologetic (it was a mistake) the manager of the restaurant no where to be seen. Whilst we settled the bill, we asked to speak to him - looking for at least an apology. His comment was “Oh I was meant to come over but I forgot”. He did not care to ask if we enjoyed our meal, whether our clothing was OK or if we were OK ( our friend washed and dried her top in the restroom!). Instead he left it to his poor staff to run around whilst he dodged our table. Such a pity as it is actually a wonderful restaurant.
Dear Ms Emma, We are sorry to hear this incident has happened to you, and also surprised as our standards are usually no where near this. The duty manager this time didn't perform accordingly and we are sorry about this, and can grantee this will not happen again. Here at Yashin Ocean House we pride ourselves on offering high standards to all customers at all times. We have taken note of this and use it for training purpose. Again our deepest apologies, Yashin Ocean House Team
I have visited this restaurant almost 20 times now in 1.5 years and I have never had an experience as awful as this! Absolutely horrible and it was obvious the boss was not around. Everyone just kept on messing up repeatedly and then apologise. The waiter even drops two bottles of coca cola on our table. We waited 30+ minutes from our reservation time to be seated and got offered smth while we waited “on the house” and then they charged us. Service was slow (kept on apologising for forgetting everything). Only thing they know how to ask for is the tip. Food quality was very good. But again so obvious that the boss was not around.
Excellent food excellent service. Highly recommend
Fantastic quality of food, super attentive service and lovely bright restaurant. Great set lunch
Food was reasonable. Not as good as it used to be.
Beautiful interior design. The food was ok but not amazing.
An excellent restaurant and venue. I recommend the tasting menu which is pretty much perfection and really fun.
Bottom line- Best restaurant we went to while visiting London! This is comparing it with Michelin 2 star rated restaurants
Champagne was fantastic (option to upgrade food and drink was also a nice added extra)
Went for the Sunday all you can eat brunch. Great value for the quality produce. Went twice. First time was impeccable. Second time, different chefs, poor rice and rolls were too soft, falling apart. Quality of fish was good both times.
Portions far too small
Simply fabulous, from arriving to leaving. I felt like a very welcome guest
Beautiful and spacious. A tad too quiet because its quite a large space and was not very busy the night we went. Also there is no signage outside the restaurant so really easy to miss it. Portions of the robata were quite small compared to similar priced and pedigree restaurants
Fantastic food and very attentive staff, sat at the counter and had good interaction with the chefs
I was offered a reservation at 2pm for lunch. We were made to feel very rushed: we were made to order within 5 minutes of sitting down and rather than being able to graze through their menu at leisure, we were told we had one opportunity to order and that was it. It was a shame, as we would have ordered more if given the opportunity. They were overly quick to clear tables, even at one point removing plates for a dish we hadn't completely finished. I felt sad that this experience cost £100. The food was good, but you can get equally good food with way better service elsewhere.
Great set lunch
We went to yashin sushi bar previously and loved it, so thought to go to ocean house for valentines. Sadly the service was poor- slow and disorganised. The food was not worth the value, dishes were incredibly small and the monkfish was over cooked. Initially we were placed at a table in a corner with only one other table away from the main restaurant so asked to move, and were placed in the main restaurant area. Organisation for valentines was not good and menu was overpriced for what we received
One of the best Japaneses restaurants we ever visited & defiantly the best in West London.
It was an amazing foods and services.. we can’t wait to go back for more ❤️
The quality of food is far from what it should be considering the very high price. We’ve lived in Japan for some time and understand what wagyu beef should taste like. This was far from perfection.
The waiters also not on point with keeping our glasses full with wine. They should be more attentive to their customers.
Bottom line, if you are after a real Japanese high class experience, you won’t find it at Yashin.
I went to Yashin Ocean House for my wife's birthday, upon booking I requested to see if anything could have been done, they confirmed they can do something special, when I ordered desserts.
I ordered a dessert each, nothing was done, no acknowledgement - nothing. I would understand if they were busy, but half of the restaurant was unoccupied.
From the very moment we walked in to the moment we left, the service was absolutely excellent. Wonderful lady on the desk was very welcoming and our hosts Dennis and Ziki were very smiley ad informative. The food was stunning - particularly good was the mackerel skin and bone and the orange foie gras. We sat at the sushi counter and we ordered champagne - we were celebrating our anniversary and very kindly our host gave this to us with his best wishes. I can't recommend this place enough. Truly a wonderful, interesting and most importantly; delicious, evening! Thank you to all at Yashin Ocean House.
Champagne and Sake brunch was a bit of a disappointment food wise - states a mix of hot and cold food, but in truth its all left on the counter so its all cold food.
Sushi was sub-standard, likely because it was left out and the sashimi dishes were quite bitter.
That being said, the service was excellent, champagne and sake both good quality and the decor is really nice.
Wine is too expensive: 48 for 3 red wines. Wine is too expensive: 48 for 3 red wines.
Food was very good, the omaskase was very reasonable priced. On top of that it came with large avocado and cucumber rolls which was a bot too mucb but can't complain for too much food when they are so good. Wine suggestions were good and starters were all amazing!
One of the best sushis for me
Try their sashimi menu
Excellent food and service- we will return as it’s a recent favourite!
Amazing food and service
Brilliant sushis especially with truffle.. thanks
They billed a
Special uni event. All that meant was that uni was in the menu- hardly special ?
Service was dreadful - lots of
Managers standing around.
I love japanese food and this is not somewhere I would recommend as the ambience is
Also very strange.
Very good food, a bit too calm and cold ambiance on a Friday night, service stops at 10 (last order) which is too early on a weekend especially during Christmas time, and it was too expensive (150 per person with just 2 glasses of wine in total)
The food was alright, not worth the money. DO NOT book the bar seating in the Winter as the restaurant is already chilly and the door next to the bar doesn't help.
Service a bit in the slower range of things.
Every dishes we had were so amazing that we are already looking forward to go back for next dinner!
Very unorganised. It’s either hit or miss.
Very delicate and fresh japanese restaurant.
Great for girls lunch
Yashin has been my favourite restaurant in many years now. The experience is consistently excellent, with beautifully sourced ingredients and a very, very creative menu.
Fantastic brunch experience. Enjoyed the bottomless champagne and saki. Beautiful venue and the food was so intricate and delicious. Amazing.
