    The food is pretty good; after all, it is an expensive, upmarket chain. But it has a curiously outmoded feel and doesnt seduce like Nobu or Zuma. Read more · September 10, 2010

    The bar leads to an indoor Japanese restaurant decorated in silk and charcoal. The crowd throughout looks the part too. More locals in the know than tourists clutching guidebooks. Read more

    I've been here before and really enjoyed it. This time it was a bit too noisy. Maybe it's because it was a Friday night. Music was way too loud . Food was good . Tempura shrimp and teriyaki chicken

    Nice roof terrace bar. Staff are a bit stuck up though if you are into that type of thing .

    Great food, order more than you think you'll eat. Service is shocking. Stick to specifics & not platters. Sushi platter was woeful. Other 11 dishes were fabulous.

    Just introduced a dress code. Really stupid for a bar/ restaurant in Soho. Pretentious and would not go back.

    Just turn up on a busy night without a reservation and they'll seat you at the sushi bar.

    looks like a clip joint but has great Japanese food and good service (and that's from a Japanese) Read more

    The lunch set menu is reasonably price, ok quality and nice idea for a group / occasion, as it comes with a cocktail but skip dessert - awful wasabi meringue

    Jessica Young · December 1, 2014

    Mixed veggie tempura, salmon sashimi, aqua kyoto black cod, crab tempura roll, salmon roll topped with lovster and miso bisque 😊☺️

    You MUST try the wagyu beef and foie gras maki rolls - Amazing! Simply the best thing on the menu! £34 for 8 pieces! Yuma !

    Don't get me wrong, it's a great place to experience the high life, but it was SO SO much better. Food is still incredible but the service slightly lacking, fingers crossed it goes back to as it was.

    Don't kid yourself over the name. Nothing like a Kyoto bar and lacking any decent service

    Blech! Sushi Sunday brunch is great if you like euro-trashing and want to pretend you are eating Japanese. Otherwise, if you are checking in, quickly change your mind and leave.

    This place takes trendy seriously and there’s a good chance that the food will be better dressed than you. The view is what makes it worthwhile. Bring a pack of Vogue cigs and you’ll fit right in.

    Awesome rooftop and great barman!

    Ouch! Be prepared for appalling service. Quite possibly the rudest I've ever experienced. Such a shame as the roof terrace is fantastic

    Kyoto bloom cocktail is awesome!
