I was surprised when the bill came and I seen the total price, as I had come away from central London to try and avoid the huge prices.

Exceptional service and stunning food though.

We had a truly lovely evening here, totally forgot we were just down the road from where we live in South East London. It has the quality of food and drink, excellence of staff and ambience of a much pricier establishment in central London. The cocktails are otherworldly. Outstanding and exceptional.

I had a bad experience previously, with extremely poor service (our dishes arriving at different times after interminable delays and staff packing up while we were still waiting for our desserts to arrive) but decided to give Yama Momo one more chance, as the manager told me it was to do with "new staff".
I was delighted to find the food was still delicious and the previous management problems appear to have been resolved - our waitress was charming and unobtrusively attentive. I'm happy to have my faith in Yama Momo restored and feel encouraged to return.

Love the food and the service. I haven’t eaten or tried anything here that disappointed me. All tasty, yummy and fresh! Price is on the high side but worth it. It can be a bit noisy which would be my only criticism but i will definitely recommend. Love yama momo!!

Service was a little disjointed on this visit, not the norm. First dishes ordered arrived incredibly quickly after ordering, before we had even received our first drinks from the bar. It felt very rushed.
Perhaps due to the nature of the dishes we ordered, four had flown out within the first 20 minutes or so of being seated and then we had to ask to check on the final dish when it hadn’t arrived over 20 minutes after the penultimate dish.
Food quality was excellent as always so hoping simply a blip!

This is not my first time as the place is local to me, nonetheless it is not the reason I go there anytime I fancy a good Japanese. The food is delicious and reasonably priced, the sashimi is outstanding, and having been in Japan several times I don't say that lightly. They also do happy hours on their signature cocktails so check their website. On weekend lunch can get rather busy so to enjoy properly perhaps evenings are better especially if you take a date

I have been to Yama Momo few times and thoroughly enjoyed the food but this time was very different. I was disappointed as I have raved about their food t my friends, my friend's chicken was over cooked and my Seafood Toban Yaki was very lemony! I will still recommend them, as it might have been a one off situation.

The atmosphere was nice enough, the price to portion ratio was not good. £18.5 for a sushi roll that was nothing special- basically just a lot of mayonnaise. The tempura portion was the smallest I’ve ever had. The fish tasted fresh but they did forget one of the rolls we ordered.

Waiting over half an hour for drinks. 45 mins for starters and only half of them arrived. After an hour of having a couple of bites we told the staff that we’d had enough and wanted to go. A treat date meal out ruined. Not the staff’s fault - not enough of them employed. Saturday lunch and it was an utter shambles. Menus tired and scruffy, paint chipped, place feeling tired. But a la carte still expensive. Never again.

Restaurant was very busy on a Friday night - people had bookings and were having to wait. We were seated fairly
quickly and people serving were very busy but efficient. Very tasty food - mixed tempura, katsu bun, gyoza and chilli steak with rice.
