We sat at the Sushi counter, which was lovely. Service a bit hit and miss - efficient yet lacking a little friendliness and warmth. Not a cheap meal but worth it regardless for the outstanding presentation, quality and taste of the food. We will return

Worst restaurant experience we have ever had in London. After 2 hours we were driven to speak to the management. It was a Fawlty Towers experience of service. We expected it would be expensive but we thought the food might be good. It wasn’t. Very ordinary. Sushi portions very small. Tempura was cold and gluggy. The black cod was half decent but also cold. The wagyu beef was tasteless and covered in overly sweet miso. The matri’ de did apologise in the end and claimed it was an “off night”. For these prices they can’t afford an off night. Also when we used the wash rooms as we left, the door handle literally came off. Summed up the whole experience. Save yourself the trouble and expense and give this restaurant a wide steer.

The ambience is elegant and snazzy without being too overwhelming, and our server Lukazs was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the food. We were pleasantly surprised at the sushi - it was a bit expensive but truly excellent, everything was fresh and full of flavor. Couldn't recommend the unagi sharing bowl and the ryuku breeze cocktail enough either! Yen is definitely more expensive but is the perfect date night location, and the quality of the food is so much better than any 'trendy' Japanese restaurant. I look forward to my next visit!

The food quality was mediocre but the absolute worst aspect of the evening was the presence of rodents scurrying around the restaurant. While Ratatouille was a delightfully entertaining film, in real life mice underfoot in a restaurant is less than comforting, not to mention the serious health and hygiene concerns the issue raises. Until their pest control abate, it would be advisable to avoid this establishment.

Combination of fresh ingredients and highly skilled sushi chef creates amazing food. My old friend from Japan was very impressed saying that foods are even better than Tokyo’s. Chef at sushi counter is very friendly and polite. Staff has good knowledge about menus and Japanese sake. Very very satisfied.

There is seating outside which is lovely for a pre-dinner Side-Car or two. Once inside we say at the sushi bar and enjoyed wonderful Tuna, Sea Urchin and other sushi. Outstanding. Black cod excellent. I could not fault the food. Not cheap, but a lovely dinner. Quiet on a Friday evening.

Only two of us dining and got my main 10 mins before my friends, and 15 mins later no rice with vegetables.. and had to cancel it so we could eat our now cold food. Very bizarre response and service. £85 for sharing tempura (4 prawns) and two small mains of lamb and cod with one soft drink. Also had the cheek to add on gratuity. Would definitely not recommend unless you enjoy spending big money on having a terrible experience and service. The sommelier was nice.

We arrived at Yen in our day wear due to us being stuck on the train so we didn’t have time to change and freshen up. However, we knew we looked a mess but as soon as we arrived, we were made to feel welcome as soon as we entered. We were here for a celebratory meal. Food was fantastic and the wine was just as good. Very reasonable prices for such good quality food and drinks. The only small point was reminding the staff of our wine. If the bottle was on our table we would have poured it ourselves no problem but it wasn’t and we had emptied glasses. As I said, this was just a small point but something that otherwise would have given us a flawless service. Thank you!!

Very fresh sushi fish, if not a bit stingy on proportions. Must go when the soba chef is in town. That, to me, is what makes the visit here worth it and distinguishes the restaurant from other Japanese options. Cold soba, and be sure to ask for the black shichimi to season the broth and the hot pasta water afterwards. It feels as special as a tea ceremony.
