    Good service, the Wagyu gyozas were great as the Waguy nigiri, the hamachi jalapeno is a must, nice sashimi moriawase, shrimp tempura maki was oiishi and the sesame fondant was more than sugoi!

    Loungy restaurant. A lot of space between the tables. Good quality food. They could serve bigger portions though ;)

    Food-wise, it is definitely not worth the £39 (for the Infinity Brunch menu without drinks). The hot food was decent, but the sushi quality was really lacking. And there is no "Infinity"/buffet

    If you fancy a casual Japanese food or you are a picky foodie for Japanese food with less money, go to DOZO in soho, you won't regret!

    Thus, for fusion or high quality food, I would highly recommend ROKA where you can take your partner to enjoy the great and creative Japanese food and excellent services! Even with less price may be

    The environment is super noisy, I actually don't mind have dinner in a lounge or bar if that restaurant is very small. But if you have enough space. Can you manage a little bit

    All the staff looked super busy that they could even not notice you! Some of staff's English was terrible. Can't believe they are working in a £££ restaurant.

    Also, the tofu in hot pot was absolutely disaster! I don't believe Japanese eat that in Japan, even though you may say it's 'fusion'. Ok sushi, although we ordered the most expensive one, not special

    Nothing good there I have to say and I won't visit again if I can choose. We spend about £130 for 3 people, but it seems we had NOTHING. The sashimi was quite little and not fusion/creative at all.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
