    It's a place for drinks but not for food.

    Great place to enjoy a sunny day in the middle of London :)

    Sushi Sunday brunch to live and die for. Tips: take a rich and generous friend. Don't eat for at least 12 hours before. Encourage the staff to ply you with champagne.

    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

    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.

    Try tuna sushi 🍣🍙🍱🍤

    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!

    Great view and a gifted chef. Go there if Shushi is your thing

    Best sushi ever. Ask for the contemporary plate!

    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

    Very average food. Empty on Monday night

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

    Grab a cocktail at the bar, you wont regret it!

    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

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

    Kate Barlow · July 28, 2011
  • Sarah B.

    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.

    Entrance at 30 Argyll Street.

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

    Cocktails and the sushi are amazingly creative concoctions

    Kyoto bloom cocktail is awesome!

  • Harriet M.

    The Rose li cocktail is amazing

    Harriet Mears · December 9, 2010

    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 apple martinis are delicious

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