One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been. The quality of the food is superb, great recommendations out of the daily menu are amazing. The restaurant has a beautiful decoration and the service is up to the expectations. Highly recommended.
We were 20 mins late as our train was 2.5hours delayed whilst in transit. 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!!
Great great great food, service was on point. One of the best best restaurant in London when you are carving 100/100 Japanese cuisine. Literally everything we had was a surprise. Outstanding.
Great sushi experience, traditional flavors set in a modern ambience. Also try their handmade soba!
We went to Yen specially for the Soba but when we arrived we were told that the chef wasn't in the country and there was no Soba on the menu.
Then despite telling the front of house one of the party was vegetarian we were served a dish with fish stock. Whilst the guest knew instantly we had to ask 3 front of house and 3 chefs before we finally got an answer that it did indeed contain fish stock. It was quite frankly ridiculous that none of the staff knew what was in the dishes and that we were highly recommended this dish in the first place (if this had been an allergen it could have been even worse).
A hugely disappointing experience all around and not what I would expect at this price point
Fantastic Dinner Experience on a quiet evening. Very high quality Sushi and Sashimi. Very finely balanced marinade for the Black Cod. Good service all evening. It was an experience to see the chefs at work. We will come back!
Great find - a buzzy space serving fresh and beautifully-presented fusion food. Service very attentive at first but drifted halfway through the evening. Not cheap but reasonable value for money by central London standards.
We had a wonderful dining experience at Yen. The attention to detail was not only in the food but in the service too. The soba and the sushi were equally absolutely delicious.
yummy, authentic japanese food. was not able to try and soba, so will go back again. went on a monday, very empty (maybe bc there was no soba, so rmb to check before you go!)
I thought the quality of the food was great! The Soba and the Rice pot were delicious. Alo the Home made Tofu! I didn't actually have any of the mains so would go back to try those. I wouldn't really recommend for the sushi and sashimi as I didn't feel they were as strong as the rest of the menu. I love the decor and architecture. I thought the staff were great and friendly. Service out of the kitchen was a little slow and there isn't that much of a vibe but it did feel very Japanese!
Excellent as always.
no quite sure, Yen in Paris is outstanding, where here the service was slow, our waitress together with the manager couldn't bring 3 starters at the same time.. overall it was so-so unfortunately
The soba and sobatsuyu is authentic and impressive. Both food and service are just Japanese style.The staff is not too casual and not too friendly, but he is polite and kind. Ambience is better than Paris.
Excellent quality sushi.
Service can be inattentive at times.
You can find better value for similar quality elsewhere.
Overall would return.
sea urchin is good and best. Cold soba is great and bring me back to Kyoto. Will come again！
Perfect brunch spot. Lunch set menu is good since you will be able to taste a lot of dishes. Portion is a little too much for a girl
The service could not have been slower. We sat at 7.30 and and it was 9.20 all we had to eat at our table was a salad to be shared by four people. Deserts arrived at approximately 10.20! The only thing that came swiftly, and twice!, was the bill. Not a bargain at £347 for four people. We will not be visiting again....
very quiet but absolutely delicious food and great service
Disappointing service and food was good but didn’t really meet our expectations. No atmosphere, ambiance is very flat and service doesn’t seem to be intuitive nor genuine.
My friend and I had lunch box with the choice of Soba. Our main reason to visit this restaurant was to taste the soba but I was disappointed. I also felt that the high ceiling and a table we were given were not comfortable.
Lovely open space, open kitchen. Great service, authentic Japanese cuisine.
Great for families too as space for high chair/buggies.
Food is overpriced and the waiting time for the food was really long.
The lunch menu is good value, but the restaurant lacks atmosphere. It was lunch time and only 3 or 4 tables were taken and its such a large space and at the same time it feels a bit cold.
Food was amazing.
Food is the best Japanese I have tasted in London.
Pre theatre Royal Opera House. Terrible service Disgusting food awful awful awful
I was very pleased. It was a proper traditional Japanese soba, indeed.
This is really nice restaurant, service was very attentive and food good enough but unfortunately both of us had upset stomach straight after the meal.
Always my first choice of Japanese restaurant in Lodon. I am from Ishigaki and this can definitely heal my homesick
Food is excellent, especially Tofu and Soba. But the quality of tempura is not as good as before. I would like to have a simple Chawanmushi if possible.
not well-trained staff.
they think guests are very close friend. they should have some coutesy to costomer.
I think management doesn't pay attention to train staff.
it is a pity even though food is great.
Truly outstanding Japanese cuisine, with a remarkable wine & sake list, excellent service and lovely ambience.
Lunch with the family. Being from Japan we enjoyed the genuine taste as well as the more modern takes using the seasonal ingredients from uk and europe. Great space, friendly and pro staff on top of that.
Very pleased with everything I like bamboo restaurants, the way they change your plates beautiful plate decorations definitely i will go again
Way too expensive for what ypu get
We have eaten in many sushi restaurants in London and I would say this is the best yet . Quality , authenticity and attentive service made it a winner for us. Try it out !
We had excellent time during our family dinner at Yen
Disappointing client dinner. The waitress at one point walked away from our table muttering “rude” clearly aimed at us and I can assure you her comments were unfounded. What would have been a very pleasant experience was totally ruined.
The manager apologised and tried to make up by offering a lot of on the house drinks etc. Such a shame experience and food was actually good.
Yen has a very good atmosphere. Friendly people and good food.
Like the starters and tempura.
Decent place for date.
