Really had a lovely evening catching up with my lovely family. The staff were all lovely, the Matradee is especially attentive to all our needs. The food & cocktails are amazing. The atmosphere is that of a top west end restaurant but local to us. The other tables and whole ambience of the restaurant was just perfect.

We have been to Yama Momo a number of times and this was again a fabulous evening with superb food and service and a buzzing atmosphere. We had relatives staying with us for the weekend who are restaurant owners themselves. They loved it too which has to be a great recommendation! We will be back :)

We came to Yama momo for my son's 12th birthday lunch which happened to be an all you can eat menu. The choice of food was not extensive with the all you can eat and everyone dining has to have the all you can eat what the reasoning around this is I do not know maybe they don't want people who are having the all you can eat sharing their food with other people who are not. Moving on there is enough on the menu for everyone and it tasted wonderful just like on the normal dining menu . You can only order two items at a go but this is more than enough as we all shared and picked at each other's food. There was a special going on for cocktails £6 a pop and they tasted lovely. All in all this is a good find and definitely worth a try.

Went for lunch with a girlfriend and we were blown away by the freshness and quality of the food which was also very tasty! And service was on point. Worth the journey and price.

Will be visiting again soon, this time with a larger group.

I lived in California for several years, and it spoiled me where sushi is concerned. I stumbled across Yama Momo and will now be returning regularly as it is the best I have had in a very, very long time. The Truffle Mayonnaise Maki Roll was so good we ordered a second one. Truly exceptional, and unbeatable in this price range.

Fantastic cocktails and food. The staff were very helpful and descriptive when asked to describe cocktails and food. Delicious wine too.

Only complaint - too few vegetarian options, and one of them was unavailable.

Delicious birthday meal to celebrate Mother’s Day with my husband and three children. Our waiter provided special hinged chopsticks for the children which even my two year old mastered. Delicious food and great value “all you can eat” set menu for weekend lunchtimes. Lycee martini was as delicious as the food and from the happy hour cocktail menu (again highlighted by our server) so it did my break the bank.

Eaten here lots of times lovely food and nice staff however I was very shocked that if u have the buffet and leave food on the plates they then let the staff eat it and said that they are actually greatfull for the left over food to be given to them now is it just me but we are not in a 3rd world country and even in the poorest of places their do not serve their staff the left overs off people's plate is like to know why the staff are treated in this way and it's made me think about eating there again as I feel this is degrading to their employers and in this day and age nobody should be eating food that is left over on people's plates as no-one knows who's done what to the food.

As always, service lets the place down. Waited ages to take our drink order after being seated, My starter arrived after my wife had finished hers despite only being a table of 2. Despite asking for our meat to be cooked to different levels both dishes were medium. Why bother asking how we want it cooked if you will cook it medium anyway.

The food was excellent, as always. The pork belly was very food, and even my partner, who is a devout carnivore admitted that the tofu was good !
Unfortunately, the service was poor- we had to ask for things several times e.g. drinks, water, etc., so this let the experience down rather.

The food is very good, but you don’t get very much! For example, each starter we ordered was very good, but you only get four bites on each dish.

I have been here before for a group birthday party celebration and it was wonderful. I returned for romantic meal for two for my birthday and was again really pleased with the food and ambience - the cocktails are amazing!
I would highly recommend. Personally I prefer to sit by the "kitchen" rather than the front of the restaurant near the bar (which is darker but quieter).

Service was terrible. On two separate occasions we had to remind the waiter to bring our drinks. The staff were disorganised and completely rushed off their feet which meant that the meals served came at different times.

The last time we came was about 12 months ago, where we ordered the sashimi luxury platter. We ordered the same this time, only to find that the portions were reduced.

Overall an underwhelming and overpriced experience.

The food is easily as good as any Charlotte Street restaurant such as Roka, or even Sushi Samba in the City. It crams a lot into a small space, so you can’t spread out much. It’s buzzy, the food is amazing; my favourite restaurant at the moment.

The menu covers most aspects of Japanese cuisine in a relaxed "mix and match" format so we enjoyed sushi with teppanyaki with tempura with sur mai......The service was very attentive yet relaxed and that really enhanced the ambience. Neither of us wanted anything alcoholic to drink that evening and it was nice not to feel pressured to order anything other than our sparkling water. Thoroughly recommend.

Amazing food, as always, and good service. We had some incredible cocktails, too. The only criticism I have is the loud 80s cheesy music which was distracting, although we sort of got used to it after a while. It’s unnecessary though, and I’d imagine that it would really irritate some customers.
