This was our second visit. The first time was great but second was extremely disappointing. The service was unfriendly and detached. We had to ask for soya sauce and tap water multiple times and tap water wasn’t given until we had finished our meal. The food came out in a random order and was not great quality. The salmon in the sashimi was going grey and the lamb cutlets were tiny. Actually wouldn’t visit again.

Try and go every few months as this place is so good, and the latest trip was the best. Great vibe, fantastic cocktails and the sushi is as good as I’ve had in London. Service can be a little slow depending on who you get, but always very friendly.

Al a carte menu wasn't available on the day, we had to pay a deposit for the set menu which would have been fine had the food matched the cost and reputation. Dishes were of varying quality, aubergine maki and scallops were the clear winners. The lobster miso soup was rather uninspired, consisting of a few lumps of overcooked, rubbery lobster meat. The disappointment of the night was our mains, seabass and wasabi chicken, both bland and flavourless. The fish was overcooked and dry, chicken was no better, coated in a wasabi green sludge that just didn't work.

Staff were friendly and attentive. Very poor value for money, horrendously overpriced for the quality, expected far more considering the reputation and other reviews.

Meal was excellent, service was very good, but the lighting was too dark! couldn't see what we were eating and I know it was Valentines but the tables were so close! not sure about serving fortune cookie with coffee in a Japanese restaurant(!). Bit strange too drinking English tea from a small oriental tea cup, with milk from a sake bottle. might have underestimated the importance of the last course in finishing off a good meal. otherwise mains were very good.

The welcome was not great obviously was a Saturday night so it was very busy however we ended wait for 20 minutes even if we had made a booking and we did not receive a formal apology. Food and drinks were great our waiter was nice (nothing special) again it was busy so I guess not much time to give everyone much attention. It was my partner birthday and I specifically asked for a candle to be put on dessert and that didn’t happen I felt very left down by the staff because it meant they don’t give enough attention to their costumer request (I work in hospitality myself) there is no excuse for something that was asked a week before to not happen. Once I got the bill I said that to the waiter which apology to me and my partner and asked if I wanted to speak with the manager which I did not want to because mine was more a feedback then a complain, they recover a bit because they brought another little dessert with a candle for my boyfriend and all the staff sang happy birthday which was appreciated however it should have happened when I asked for.
So yeah I would go back for the food and drinks but no for a celebration and on a Saturday night.

Great food and atmosphere. Food is really good. Cocktails are good standard with a nice twist. Starters came separately so we had to wait. One of the starters we ordered never arrived. Main also came separately so again they clearly seem to have a problem here. Sadly we were rushed out with the bill as there is a limit of 2 hours.

Generally would go there again but not on a Saturday night as clearly they can’t coupe with the crowd.

Always have a fantastic time here. It is expensive (well the way we do it, it is!!). But food is consistently great and the electric Kamakaze cocktail is divine! Highly recommend

Busy on a Monday night! That kind of says it all. Happy hour cocktails were great. Food was good. Spicy edamame better than I've ever had, but the volcano roll did not look appetizing (it was made to look like a volcano that had just erupted). Service a little slow.

Consistently good. Great cocktails, food & service. You can always rely on having a great night out and it’s local! So no having to negotiate trains from central London. Perfect!

This is the second time we’ve been to Yama Momo, and we’ll definitely be back again! The food is spectacular, with the truffle tart at being a standout dish, oh and the snowcrab dumplings! It’s all delicious. And the cocktails are amazing too. Overall a wonderful evening out that I can’t wait to repeat!!

Thoroughly enjoyable dinner at Yama Momo. Starters of edamame, sushi, prawns and squid were excellent, topped by the black cod and dynamite rib eye for mains. We will be back.

We have never tried the lunchtime all you can eat offer as we usually go in the evening. The set menu was lacking in most of our usual favourites so we had to try some new dishes and they were all great. The squid tempura was the biggest hit as well the shrimp tempura maki. The service was excellent and the half price cocktails made it a very pleasant experience. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant for dinner and lunch as we always have a great meal.
